I swear I took this yesterday, just didn’t have a chance to post it. (Deborah and I were too busy watching disaster movies.)
Yeah, we’re in Austin now, housesitting with Deborah’s family for another coworker. So far we haven’t done a whole lot, just relaxing, going swimming, working, that kind of thing. Yesterday we attempted an urban adventure quest downtown, but it kind of went to pot when it started to sprinkle, then everyone was hungry, and Miles’s ear started hurting. So after lunch at a pizza place and of course a Voodoo doughnut, I took Miles to urgent care where he was diagnosed with a double ear infection. Poor bunny.
Well that’s a misleading title, since we were just talking about school stuff yesterday. But no, what I mean is that I finally pulled out my old film camera and put some dang film in it and took some dang pics and got them developed. Finally! (As you can see, I’ve intended to do this for over four years now…yikes.) What prompted me after all this time was seeing some pics my friend Wendy took with a film camera.
It’s been so long I can’t remember why I never actually just, you know, did it. Turns out, the camera worked fine! The battery was even still good, the focus was fine, nothing weird or unexpected.
I didn’t spend a whole lot of time taking pics, I just kind of wanted to blow through the roll and make sure it actually worked. But here are the results! (Note: these were scanned by the lab I used, and were not touched at all.)
Oh, and that evening the boys’ school had a fundraiser at the amusement park at City Park, and that was a lot of fun. I rode the Ladybug roller coaster three times in a row. (It’s very mild.)

Video proof of my kids getting older:
Sunday was of course Mother’s Day, but also George’s birthday. So my usual plans of spending the whole day alone were kind of shot. I went to Orangetheory in the morning, and then did some errands, and was going to go to a movie (with George’s blessing, I’m not a monster, you know I love birthdays, but he doesn’t really care as much) but I got home too late. Boo! But I had a few cocktails at the pub and then went home and cooked some steak. Yum!
Oh right, on Saturday (man that was a busy day), the boys’ friend Diego came over. When his mom came to pick me up, she gave me a dozen roses! What?!?! So sweet!
You can tell the school year is almost over. Miles is wearing two different shoes, Oliver has black pants instead of navy, and you can almost see Linus’s toes through his shoes. But by god, we are almost to the end of third grade!
