Throwback Post: Thomas and Camilla August 2013 Date Day

**THROWBACK POST**

August 31 2013:

Date day with Thomas!!! First stop … FOOD … YUM!

Second stop on the Camilla n Thomas date day! Was just going to return books but Mr. T wanted this to be stop number 2! Okay with me! I love this place!

Next stop on the Camilla n Thomas date day … Window shopping. He loves looking at Legos! He asks, “What’s this?” …. That’s a pay phone honey. “What’s it for?”

Lion in a Cat Body Followed by The Colony

September 9 2021

Just back from volunteering at the Humane Society. Check out the face of the first cat. I just could not stop looking at her, and thinking that is a freakin’ lion in a cats body! It felt like she wanted to rip our heads off! 😂🤣😂 To be fair, she has reason to look stern, as she is just there temporarily as part of the fire evacuations. (Editing to add: She is NOT available for adoption. She is just there temporarily due to fire evacuations.)

Thomas and I both wanted to bring home the cat in the last three photos. He was a sweetheart, just having arrived yesterday. He won’t be there long.

Thomas loves this little theater, and was excited to see a play after not having been for well over a year.

First Day of School for Thomas With a Mindful Book

September 7 2021

Thomas’s first day of school photo. 🤣🤣😂 He started on September 1st. He’s also still taking piano lessons, and making great progress. Go Thomas!! xoxo (He’s about halfway through 10th grade).

September 9 2021

Checking the library accounts to see what’s due, and saw that Thomas has this book on hold. I don’t know why this brought the tears flowing. I just kept thinking after 10+ years of me deep diving into mindfulness and meditation, openly sharing with Thomas and Lillian (and with Thomas mocking/arguing with me about some of it), he’s researching it on his own. My heart is overflowing.

Harder Than It Looks With Shang-Chi and Vegan Pizza

September 1 2021

Finally got the corn hole bags. Definitely harder than it looks!

September 2 2021

New Marvel Movie = Dinner and a movie with Thomas. Vegan, gluten-free pizza from Noble Pie Parlor and then Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings. The smoke cleared enough to walk to dinner and the movie. Bonus: It was still clear when we got home; which meant I finally got to have a swim. Great night!
