Best of memories: the college apartment

The apartment has plenty of character all by itself, with its multi-color bathroom and wild style light fixtures. But of course, the college kiddos have added their own touch. We were greeted by a poster for the school newspaper - featuring a rabbit, of course.

While La Petite took her camera to the football field and covered the game, Amigo relaxed in front of her TV and cheered on the team from the warm and cozy Love Sac in her living room. They won, by the way, setting themselves up for a playoff game in Virginia - another story altogether.

Me, however, the mama. I took over the kitchen table with my school work, spread out science workpackets to score and record, devoted teacher that I am. Chuck took inventory of the refrigerator and went grocery shopping.

But after the game, after the shopping, we sat down together and celebrated birthdays: Chuck's and La Petite's. It was a fairly relaxing experience, all in all, a short but valuable respite from our busy lives.

How busy were we? This visit took place in mid December, and I just downloaded the pictures now. In the NaBloPoMo category of Best, this day was one of the Best Relaxation moments of December.

some of my favorite moments are when we're all under the same roof doing different things, yet still together.

For some time now, when I've landed in Google Reader I've been awed by your output. Only this morning did I grasp that you're doing that "post every day challenge." When I consider such a task, I concede that by day 3 I'd fail... so I'm awed to see anyone take it on.

You clearly have it completely under control. Obviously, I'm not keeping up all that well, but I always enjoy the visits. Good luck!
