One Last Lake Post

We've been slow to post all of these photos--this month has been crazy. We went from Lake Seed to the Highlands to Lake Toxaway and then back to Atlanta straight to CAMP at church and then, finally, a busy week trying to get ourselves together for the school year! And, remember, we aren't even at our own house--we're at Ya-Ya and Pop-Pop's! At any rate, here is a pretty cute smile from John.
And here is Kira trying not to smile a mere two seconds later.
A little underwater tickling got her smiling. That two-tooth gap is precious, and fleeting. Notice the wire for her expander there, making way for her grown-up teeth.
Here are all the Rand cousins. That's Jackson (2) on the far left and Walker (5) on the far right. Chet (8) is next to Kira.

Jay at School, Take Two

For some reason it appears that mobile devices don't support our embedded video, so I'm trying a different tack. If you tried to watch the video on your phone or iPad, were stymied, gave up, but really wish you had seen Jay singing and dancing at Mays High, click here. If you've seen it already, and/or none of that sounds interesting to you, just ignore this post.

We Heart Freedom

Kira and her cousin Chet made a newspaper for each day of our lake vacation.  The newspaper was named "The Tattler."  Here's part of Kira's contribution for today's issue.  (For context, you might need to know the comic was part of a series.  Not sure if that helps or not...)  Happy Independence Day!

Jay at School

In honor of Jay's 40th birthday (yesterday) and the completion of his 10th year teaching at Mays, here is a video he made with some students on the last day of school.  A little background: Jay makes a playlist every year that he plays over and over as they prepare for their big state test.  After the test, each class gets to add a few songs to the playlist.  Thus the mix of genres you'll enjoy as soon as you hit play...
