The Surreal Life

No pictures are needed for this scenario, just close your eyes (but keep reading) and imagine sleeping, eating and playing in a non-air conditioned house, in Durham, in July. Now you get the picture. I thought it was warm last night when we got home and checked the thermostat - 84 degrees, oh my. Hopefully, the HVAC will get repaired tomorrow as my delicate baby, son and husband are all close to melting. This type of sweatiness indoors reminds me of the house I grew up in and all the apartments I have ever rented. For me a bit of nostalgia.
Update: Monday morning house temp 89 degrees - how is it hotter inside than out?!?

David Hasselhoff - Hooked on a Feeling

You absolutely HAVE to check this out - I think he is taking himself seriously, which makes it even more priceless

Sad news for Demon Deacons

Well, many of you may have heard that Wake Forest's basketball coach Skip Prosser died yesterday. It may seem like we make too much of athletics as a society, but I get so much joy (and anxiety and grief) from being a sports fan. I am a lifelong Wake fan as anyone reading this blog knows. For better or for worse Coach Prosser is the one who changed Wake basketball games from the country club set to the wild and quite atrocious sea of tie-dyed black and gold shirts. It is sad news and it is just one of those events that makes you want to tell your family and friends that you love them. Here's a last hoorah to a gentleman coach - Go Deacs!

Reading is Fundamental

Danny and the kids enjoy some reading time. Henry loves this book of Spanish vocabulary words, only he doesn't want anyone to say the words in Spanish - when we try he usually says "no,no,no ... no,no,no" - he really likes the animal (zoologica) page. Claudia tried to eat the pages which Henry thought was a good idea!

A few more...

More fun in B'town at Nana Kathy, Papa Dennis and Nana Jean's house - also a little jaunt to Saxapahaw for a music concert.

Horsin' Around

These are shots from Burlington where there is a fun and sometimes slightly scary (for the parents) horsey to ride. Fun was had by all. After a hard day in the saddle the kiddos settled in for some life lessons from Dr Seuss.

Rubber Ducky

These are some of my favorite pictures of our girl. Henry was playing with this little rubber ducky and then gave it to her. She put it's tail in her mouth - which we thought was hysterical and in turn she cracked up when we laughed. She was really egging us on. I love it!

A Spider's Dream

Henry's version: Row, row, row your boat gently down the stream. Merrily, merrily, merrily, merrily life's a spider's dream.
