Saturday I lugged my boxes across campus and hauled them up to my office. I'm not teaching a class this semester, but I will be tutoring a few hours a week, and I am thankful.

Mother's Day

We celebrated Mother's Day with dinner at the Cookie House. Logan grilled steak, which we served with baked beans, potato salad, coleslaw, asparagus, biscuits with honey, blackberry lemonade and iced tea. For dessert, Naomi presented us with a chocolate raspberry cheesecake.
