October 30

Our sweet baby...our fiercely intelligent, kind, patient, wickedly funny baby is 15 today! And how brave -- this school year she held her breath and decided she was going to overcome her painfully bashful nature: she joined Model UN, Ecology Club, Latin Club, Theater, Medical Health Explorers, and Key Club (for whom she spends her weekends volunteering for various causes).  We have always been proud of our Caroline, and every year we know her we have even more reason to be grateful for her. We love you & we are so proud of you, Caro! Happy Birthday! ❤

We Don't Do Tame

"Caro-Lion, why did you put the yogurts away all willy nilly"?
"They were NINJA STARS!"

Kitty Hawk, NC

Looking out her window, soaking up impressions of Kitty Hawk for her AP Human Geography project. School hasn't started yet, but Kid has.

Oh myyyyyy. Kid's first driving lesson. I knew this day would come.  I knew it, but I couldn't feel it.

Baboons, Plows, and Pudding

My family are legendary when it comes to hearing (and singing back) lyrics that are completely wrong. My mom thought Credence Clearwater Revival was singing "Theeeere's a baboon on the right!", and I've been caught singing with the Rolling Stones "Hey, YOU! Get off of my plow!". This morning, I hear Caro singing to Floyd: "How can you have any pudding if you don't kick yer feet!"
Them there's the Myrick/Hall girls. Yup.

I salt-oil-scrubbed my hands, and Caro just told me my hands "feel like amphibians".
