Photos of the week, week 15

I know I promised y’all a more substantive post, but that’s not happening this week. Am still “favoriting” things in my RSS reader, but nothing is striking me enough to post about it later.

I’m working on a project with some coworkers that will engender an (I hope) interesting post, regarding online legal learning, but I left my notes at work! Just for a teaser: Continue reading

She loves the toddler room (excuse me; we are not to utter the word “toddler” in our house, she has patiently informed us several times that she is a baby), and she adores the water area, where you can make big bubbles and just play in various tubs of water. She stood at one tub for at least 15 minutes with a cup, letting water pour into the cup from a mini fountain, and then pouring it back into the tub.
