You can take him to a parade, but there’s nothing you can do to keep him awake.
From the top left, L to R:
Leo in his Barack outfit (he picked out the hard hat for the parade all by himself)
Cute t-shirts, cute boys (what are these deck and betch t-shirts? anyone know the source?)
Cute Mark F.
Matthew & Michael (also very cute)
Katherine and Diane Patrick
Marching toward King’s Chapel
Sophie & Leo heading home on the Blue Line

Leo’s school year ended with a gathering at Devereux Beach. Here are some of the kids from the class. They are : Leo, Harry, Reid, Anna & Lia, Aidan, Eoghan, Cole, Sophia, and Annika.
Leo and Anthony running through the sprinklers. Then we decided to go to the beach. And I dropped my camera and smashed my lens, leaving me with pencil and paper.

I guess the simultaneous usage at home of tinkertoys, legos, building blocks and Lincoln Logs paid off — Leo built the tallest castle in his class.
Vita had her white garden. Vera has her blue and white garden. She is especially happy with how it looks right now.
Leo proudly dug the holes, separated the roots, and planted his snapdragons.
We mostly credit Sophie with passing on her love of spaniels to Leo. But here’s evidence that I loved them too!
I’m probably about 7 here. These are Grandpa Leo’s dogs, Junie and Peaches, I think — they are the ones I remember best.
I love how, amidst the chaos of her siblings, this girl seems to connect with America’s first published writer of African descent.
