My mother is so going to kill me. But this is too fun. I don't have any new pictures of the kids, and you don't need to see any more pictures of me, so here is a blast from the past: my mother the vamp. There's a good chance my dad took this photo, and you can see by the ring on her finger they were engaged. She sure knew how to pose!
This one is classic! This was her "professional" look. She taught 5th grade and wore dresses and heels to work every day. Don't let the smile fool you. This woman could raise one eyebrow and give the death stare to any student who misbehaved. (She can still do it, too.)
I'm meeting with the contractor today to discuss the final house plans, and I think they'll get started ripping things apart the first week of March. Today we had a hurricane. Li-ter-a-ly! We get these crazy storms over the mountains that bring 75mph winds. It was horrible today. Poor Carver and Lily walked to school and almost died. Lily walked backward to keep the sticks and sand out of her eyes. Carver came back to the house and got his ski goggles to wear for eye protection. Who knew walking to school could be so hazardous?
