We met Steve’s parents (Grandpa David and Grandma Joyce) for lunch this week---
Also, Miss K had fun playing with my shoes a couple of nights ago:
Finally, this is a picture that she took---pretty cool!
The new word for the month is “mine”. Today at Walgreens, everything was “MINE”. Loudly. I think that developmentally we’re pretty much on track!
What’s interesting is that she still refuses to say her name. She can say all of the syllables, and has even said “Rina” a couple of times, but when you ask her to say “Karina” she just says “no”. That’s the new big milestone to work for!

Miss K and I went to visit my mom and dad this weekend (Mimi and Papa Tom). Auntie Susan was also there, and Miss K was in her element! On Saturday I was able to enjoy a really fun camera workshop, where I learned what almost all of the buttons on my new camera are for, so I am looking forward to having some time to practice.
Here’s Miss K with Auntie Susan, checking out Papa Tom’s new mower:
One of the pictures from my experimentations—with the camera on the “manual” setting:
Back on the mower---this time with Papa Tom:
and then with Hippa:
Out at the farm---checking out the bulls in the “bull pen”:
Checking out the frog on the top of the fence:

An old friend of ours got married this past weekend in Lawrence KS at the old train depot. It was a great time (very laid back and eclectic) and a good time to take some pictures. Miss K LOVES trains (we’re about 3 blocks from the train tracks here) and so seeing them really up close was exciting for her. There was also a Jayhawk statue that she was a bit “too” affectionate with for Mommy’s taste but Mommy is trying to be understanding. Trying.
No pictures with the Jayhawk. Rats. Didn’t have the camera out at that point.
