A year ago today, the girls and I were viewing the total solar eclipse from Athens, Tennessee.  I left all photography to the experts and chose to just enjoy the experience sans technology.  But I did take this photo.. interesting marketing strategy, don’t you think??

Lego is popular in our family.  Here are a couple of big projects that L and I worked on last year.  The Falcon took us weeks!  We customized it with LED wire to light up the engines and parts of the inside.  Can you spot the missing piece??

Middle school graduates J and L with their Nana. A great day! 📷 👨‍👧‍👧 👩🏻‍🎓 👩🏻‍🎓

My father is no longer with us, and our relationship was always challenging. But I still miss him, and I miss what could have been. I am forever thankful for gifts he passed on to me in his own way. Happy Fathers Day, dad. 👨🏻‍🔧

J cut her hair short and donated the rest to an organization that provides wigs to cancer patients. Pretty awesome.
