Cutest little monkey I ever did see. ;)

Wanna know something? I woke up this morning and as I was brushing my teeth, I thought of the photo of 'the girl' you had posted yesterday and I honestly thought it was a dream. I thought, Karey isn't blogging anymore, so now I'm seeing gasp-worthy photos of people in my head, and imaginarily blogging them for her.

I came back this morning and was relieved to find it was real.

SGM said...

That is quite possibly the cutest thing I have ever seen. Classmates? What classmates? That girl knows who she is.

This blogging, you can't tease us like this, karey! Oh wait, yes you can because we'll take anything we can get. :)

xo, mama

jae said...

I absolutely giggled. That is the best class photo I have ever seen. I think you made a wise choice in choosing to be her this summer....that sweet and shy confidence is a magical combination.

So glad you giggled enough to share!

Marnie said...

Aimee said...

I hope my little one is a little bit like that =o) too cute!

Shannon said...

When you got it you got it...I love that she feels free to strike that pose all on her own!

And we'll take you blogging "not really" over not at all!
Miss your beautiful words and touching stories.

Kim said...

hi karey, got an idea for you if you're game... i would love it if you'd be a guest blogger on my blog!!! maybe share a little of what you see as the perks of raising your children in another country? i spent part of my formative years overseas - so life changing. what do you think? you can drop me a line at earthroamer21 {at} hotmail if you're interested.

Mrs.French said...

I giggled, I sighed and got excited for a minute...I thought you were back...oh poo. xo t

Robin said...

What a thrill to see mackin ink back (if only briefly) (even if I missed it by 2 months). Oh, Karey - you are so very missed. And your meme? Fabulous.

Relyn said...

Oh, Karey. Please, please come back to blogging. Please do. I've thought of you off and on since you went away and left us sad. So, today when I was on my friend Studio Wellspring's site and saw she still had a link to you, I had to click it. My heart very literally jumped when your blog opened up. Yippie, she's back! my heart yelled. Please, oh please, be back!

Relyn said...

And, yes. I giggled. And thought, "Oh, I wish I had that knows-just-who-she-is girl in my classroom."
