I am not a fan of Washington DC’s Dulles Airport.
Sure, it was nice. Yeah, I did get to see a space shuttle on top of an airplane. But, that airport is huge.
In fact, it was so huge that carrying around my backpack and my duffel bag has caused me back pain from when I woke up on Monday morning through the present time. I am less than thrilled about that. I keep thinking that the back pain has to go away sometime, but it’s pretty stubborn.

For this past Christmas, we gave Jack an older Canon digital Rebel. He was pretty excited, and has had fun with it. This week, he asked if he could use my external flash along with my Lightsphere diffuser because Molly was going to be his model.
I decided to go one further and brought out some backdrops and a backdrop stand. They were both thrilled and Jack’s pictures were fabulous.

Even though Jack’s pictures were wonderful, my favorites were taken with my iPhone of him taking the pictures.
My Mom said, “It’s a shame he had such a reluctant model.”

Can I tell you a little secret?
I’m really, really, really ready to clock in our last of our 180 days of school and take a summer break. So very ready.
The worst part of that, however, is that we’ll have to do school later than we’ve ever had to do it before — into June! I’m ready to take a break and regroup.

I have now had three times of people saying that I remind them of Mayim Bialik’s Big Bang Theory character Amy Farrah Fowler. I’m not sure what I think about that.

Yesterday, I took the kids shopping and I managed to buy three pairs of shoes (one pair for each of the kids), a pair of rain boots (for Molly), a hat (for Jack), and three polo shirts for Eric. I did it all for just $60!
I was thrilled to have a coupon for 20% off, a coupon for $10 off $10, and then $70 in Kohl’s cash. Ching!
Of course, you rarely pay the price on the tag at Kohl’s. Things are always on sale, and they’re constantly sending out coupons and deals. But, it’s kind of a fun little dance to do with them.

From me and my only remaining Star Wars figure (though I had tons as a young child), Princess Leia in her snowsuit from Hoth, we wish you a Happy Star Wars Day!
May the 4th Be with You!
