Good thing my blog allows me to write posts then schedule them out into the future! It has been insanely busy. Here’s a smattering of the early June busy-ness!
Then the Track and Field team end-of-season picnic and awards at a waterfront park in Rockport, Maine.

Then on the final day of school, after Eli’s last exam, we attended a memorial service for one of his Cross Country teammates, Forest P., who died a week ago from a brain tumor at the age of 18. His parents got him a tutor, though, and he was able to graduate along with his class (though of course he was way too ill to attend the ceremony, he died just a few days after). His father wanted the teammates to come do his practice run route near their home where the reception after was held. When Forest and a friend would come in (usually within 10 feet of each other), everyone would shout “Run, Forest, run!” so we did. Sigh. So impossibly sad:And the team:
