|My mom still in shock|
|My dad puttering around outside|
|My parents, sister, and brother-in-law Skype calling their great grand-daughter (and grand-daughter)|
|Cutting the anniversary cake|
|Just outside the front door.|
|View from the edge of the lake to the Island.|
|The frozen lake - not quite ready to walk on, but very soon!|
|The only ones on the lake are the pigeons and the litterers . |
The double cup suggests to me that they were also wimps.
|The wind always makes small drifts - these were only a few inches high.|
After a slightly delayed flight home, the whirlwind of activity drastically increased. Parker had 3 appointments this week and they all were in the middle of the day. Two of them were to install the first step in getting braces.
|Cool dude getting an orthodontic appliance|
|He only needed an appliance to adjust one side of his jaw, full braces may be later...|
Now that it is finally Friday (and Parker just had his third appointment during work/school hours), it should be time to relax a little. Unfortunately, my students had an exam while I was away, and another one this week after I had returned. Marking is therefore the next big task over the coming weeks.
