Compton Reunion

Photos from the Compton-side reunion in June @ the lovely Rancho de la Roca in Aubrey. 
We had a nice time visiting with my Grandma Evelyn's siblings family, all the descendants of Maude and Ed. I was the lucky auction winner of a painting of her childhood home in Red Springs by artist/2nd cousin Polly Jones too - love it!

Mar/Apr 2017

March Adventures-

We ended up with two different spring break weeks - the first week off for me with lots of lounging and plant shopping, then a week off for Matt for disc golf and planting

A weekend trip to Palo Duro Canyon

Matt's dissertation defense - big news!

Spending time with family while my grandfather was sick & remembering Papa

Celebrating Junior League's 40th Anniversary with 40 projects, so grateful I get to help the community and improve myself through my involvement with JLCC

April Adventures-

Fun at the Denison Culture of Arts Festival, McKinney Arts in Bloom (3 days/3 visits), visiting Bonham, and eating on the square with my parents (their first trips to Snug & Mellow Mushroom)

24 hours in San Antonio for the library convention, it didn't work out quite right with work/time/money so it was a quick visit for TLA this time, but my session was highly attended and helpful so the drive was worthwhile (plus I got to finish listening to Making Oprah and Only Human)

A busy Junior League month working at our Trinkets to Treasures rummage sale, taking a great class on emotional intelligence, and interviewing for next year's placement - looking forward to working on new service projects through the Done in a Day committee

And lots of spring antiquing - we've been having fun as McKinney pickers collecting vintage landscape paintings, current favorite shops are Touch of Class in Sherman (also a random history museum), Antique Company Mall, and High Street Market in Plano
And around the house...
We (Matt) did a lot over spring break - annual spring landscaping, plus an overdue pool repair (the spa gets hot again-yay!), an overdue oven repair = buying a new oven, buying a hedge trimmer, sound bar for the den, and stocking up on pool supplies for the season and other yard maintenance.
