Is it true that adulthood is repeating, "it's been a week" and/or "I just need to get through next week," until you die? If so, I've been feeling very adult-ish these days. There are still high fives to be found in the crazy though, so here we go!
Did you watch (without looking directly at the sun, of course) the solar eclipse? I was at the dance studio with lots of Nutcracker dancers, and they were passing around the special glasses that allow you to safely catch a glimpse of this phenomenon. It was cool to see myself, but even more fun to watch them "ooh" and "ahh" as the light in the parking lot changed around them.
Check out these photos taken by a photographer I recently met here in College Station - very cool!
I don't have a picture to prove it, but on Tuesday I got to see and have lunch with a friend I hadn't seen in ages. For a variety of reasons we'd kind of lost touch with one another, and it was lovely to catch up.
Homecoming, Round 2 was a blast! Both Will and Hallie dressed up according to the "Barbenheimer" theme for school on Friday, Hallie sang the National Anthem with her choir before the game on Friday night (we won the game 72-0), and then Hallie and friends had a great time getting ready for, taking pictures before, eating dinner before, attending, and then finally going out for Andy's frozen custard after the dance. (Will still doesn't believe in dances, so he didn't go.)

fun for everyone except little sister's big sister.
Hallie's ballet company - Encore - had its first performance of the year on Sunday afternoon. "En Motion" was a lovely glimpse into the incredibly hard work the girls have put in since the dance year started just two months ago.
We have a new baby! Her name is Meredith Gray/Grey, and she was named by the little girl who rescued her from the tree in which she was stuck. Sweet MG has burns on her little paws, but we're working hard to heal those injuries so she'll be ready for adoption in a few weeks.
Happy weekend, friends!
