Random Five on Saturday, June 25th

The past few weeks have finally started to seem like summer around here.

I've stopped worrying about having to squeeze in school work around all of Lauren's appointments. (She has had even more than usual lately because we're catching up on some things.) I still throw a book or two in my bag whenever we head out the door, but it's not as stressful as it was a few weeks ago when I was trying to squeeze in "just a bit more" academic work to finish up our year.

Here's a random look at our past week:

1. Lauren and I were surprised to see a large gathering of Star Wars characters in the lobby of Children's Hospital Thursday afternoon. She noticed that they all had on the official stickers showing that they had been screened for overseas travel and Ebola symptoms. Does space travel count as being out of the country?

2. The boys found a cell-phone signal early one morning and sent us a selfie from their hike at Philmont Scout Ranch. Looks like they're having fun!

3. I finally replaced my basil that got destroyed in a hail storm last month. I don't usually have luck growing much, but I can usually keep basil growing through the summer.

4. After last weekend's adventure climbing up (and back down) Mt. Princeton, I've had quite a bit of soreness, especially in one thigh. It wasn't bad enough to make me schedule a doctor's appointment for myself, but I haven't risked running in a week. I'm starting to get stir crazy.

5. I've been working on two knitting and crochet projects, and both of them are going more slowly than I'd like. I try to remind myself that slow progress is still progress.

Lately, I've found a wonderful place to spend cool summer evenings. I think I'll head there now:
