Here is our first house, a tiny little 2 bedroom. Perfect as a starter house. Kilian came home to this house as a newborn. I was happy to see it looking so cheery.
This is our second house. This is the house where Kilian and Pandora (our dog at the time) welcomed Lucy and then Camille. We moved out of it almost 2 years ago. The next door neighbor said she hadn't seen anyone there in over two months and it seems it has been foreclosed. I was surprised how sad it made me feel to see it in such bad shape.
After eating Sunday brunch at my favorite restaurant, and a bit of reminiscing, we hit the highway. Here are some highlights of the 6 hour drive. No worries...I didn't ever look at the camera while taking pictures - eyes only on the road. If you hold the camera out and click enough, you eventually get some decent ones (if you don't mind reflections, bug juice and the radio antenna).
As I drove, I was listening a radio conversation about a book called "Fatal Misconception". It tackles the subject of world population trends, the myth that we are overpopulated, and the issues that China and other countries that limit the number of children are facing. I intend to check it out at the library.
I kinda think I should invite them to drive from Dallas to Lubbock.
This is how I stayed awake. Yum. This is the fudge our Friday night hostess, Juanelle, sent with us on the road. The kids and I made a nice dent in it on the road home.
I also had a backup plan. If the fudge didn't keep me awake, this would.
