Mars Rover


Porter, Chris, Carter, and Sam worked many hours on an extra school project called Mars Rover.  They researched Mars, they created a rover, they wrote and memorized a skit, and then they participated in a competition at University of Houston.  They did so great!  Their rover looked great, and their skit was hillarious.  They all have such good sesnses of humor!  Check out their cool glasses and matching shirts!  Their experience was topped off by a field trip to NASA. Lucky!

optical migraine

I thought maybe I was going blind, with the bright light in my line of vision, then the flashing light, then the headache and nausea.  Luckily, I have an eye doctor for a brother who was able to diagnose and reassure me. It's not blindness... just an optical migrane...

The Olympic Time Trials




Whitney and I braved a brisk morning in downtown Houston to witness a truly amazing feat.  Olympic class athletes competing for their spot to be able to represent our country in London at the 2012 Olympics.  It was amazing to see that talent! The day before we enjoyed the expo for the Houston Marathon. Lots of fun running accessories.  I love everything related to running!

coming home... no place like home




After a three week stint away from home, I could truly say... there's no place like home... I was so glad to be home!
