Rare sighting

I'd venture to say that most of us out there have at one time or another used Google street maps.  A couple of days ago we spotted the Google maps car by one of our local shopping centers.  This is the car that drives around taking those pictures that become part of those maps.  I wish we could have gotten a closer picture (the guy inside already looked freaked out because we were stalking him) of the inside so you could see all the computers that it has inside.  It is pretty amazing for a little tiny car.  And if once wasn't enough, we saw it again a few days later in a different part of town.  Rick said to the girls that maybe we would end up on Google street maps.  Julee in her rather special 14-year old way responded with something like "Yes, wouldn't that be fabulous."  Too funny!

1st Day of School

Well, we made it through the first week and a half of school.  I find it funny that I wait all summer for us to have our "schedule" back and then when it finally happens, it seems like it takes forever to get used to it.  I suppose it doesn't help that now that Julee is in high school we started seminary this past week.  We now have 8 years of early mornings to look forward to. I'll let you know when I'm excited about that but don't hold your breath.

I can't believe that Julee is already in high school! She has become very busy all of a sudden.  Between seminary, school, and JV volleyball she is always on the run.  Alexis is now in 5th grade and growing like a weed.  She is just a hair taller than Julee and most of the kids in her class.  She was so ready to start the school year and is loving her new teacher, Mr Travers.  Here's to a great school year!

P.S.  I spent the afternoon downloading and organizing pictures so maybe I'll get to some more blogging this week.  Again, don't hold your breath...
