short excuse: i’ve got three major deadlines all this coming week.  i won’t be blogging again until those are all past.  until then, here is a pic-heavy, word-light post catching you up on events of a couple weeks ago.

the agecon department does these little department potluck dinner things twice a year.  the fall one was a couple of weeks ago, and while this was actually caroline’s second one, this is the first one for which i had the foresight to bring a camera.   but since we went hang out at the LSU lakes beforehand, of course most of the pictures were taken there.  because hey, caroline + nature = entertainment.

caroline made friends with a very ugly duckling who had the misfortune to grow up into a very ugly duck:

and then wandered off until she found and got up close to some very chatty geese:

and then hung out with granny before heading over to the potluck:

now i’ve really got to take my leave for a week or so. the next one will probably be pretty pic-heavy too, so it should be worth the wait, at least for those of you who view these words as mostly just white noise to break up the space between pictures of caroline. hi mom!

sigh.
