First some cute photos of the event followed by a couple of very short videos (15-19 seconds each) of each of the kids holding the lady bug.
I just love their little smiles - genuine happiness mixed with intrigue and wonder - only at this age does this occur and only for a short time. I am so glad to have captured such a moment. Thank you, Lady Bug, for stopping en route to your picnic.
Oh, I found out yesterday that I passed my written master's project/exam. Sigh of relief but the butterflies in the stomach are fluttering as I think of my oral exam and last standardized patient exam. Now to just survive the last of my clinical rotations. Urgent care is fun, interesting, and really keeping me on my toes - making me a bit paranoid about my own kids and sad to see so many antibiotics being over-prescribed. Plus, I did not realize how gratifying draining an abscess can be (this is probably the nurse part of me coming out).
Gotta go - working tomorrow. Let's just say the kids have big plans for T Rex Dad on Saturday! I also have it on good authority he's pretty excited to hang out with them, too.
