Today I went to school to write out seating charts by hand since our fancy, updated computer program won't allow us to use the seating chart function UNTIL THE FIRST DAY OF SCHOOL. Idiotic, no? I haven't had to do such a thing for about 10 years, so I was disgruntled, until I got a text that my good friend has been hired to teach 2 Spanish classes at my school. Thus, there are three great new people in my World Language Department which is very exciting! That adds to my joy over my Daughter Day in La Conner yesterday, minus the traffic which was indeed horrific. What idiot decided to come home during rush hour and Seahawk traffic? (guilty) Photos are always nice, aren't they?
We fell in love with this wood map of the world in a specialty wood shop. We weren't even planning to go into this store, but it was so fantastic that we visited it twice!
Isn't my tornado hair attractive? :) (hey, it was a bit breezy and rainy at times) But Alison's squinty eyes and the color of my transition lenses tell you that it WAS sunny at that moment. P.S. I love my girls!!
Photo bombings are cool, aren't they? I'm glad that I look normalish. :) I don't know whether to be relieved or not that Alison has signed a lease on a house in Bellingham, in the middle of nowhere(sort of) and is still in flux about jobs, her boyfriend, life...Is this typical of the 20s or should I start worrying even more?
Our first trip to La Conner as a family included many adventures with our small boat among yachts and huge ocean going vessels, but I did manage to capture this tender moment between Patt and Alison. It's painful to look back, yet also wonderful to remember his love and devotion. So many people aren't fortunate enough to have a Patt in their lives, even if he only exists for us now in these special memories.
