Yesterday, our old babysitter, Caroline, called and said she was coming to town to spend the weekend with friends and go to the game. The kids were all about to kill each other to get to the phone first! And then, best of all, she said she was coming by to see them -- they were soooooo excited!
She's in Atlanta now, living with her parents and looking for a job. She's says Atlanta's not only out of gas, but it's also out of jobs! Poor thing... not such a great time to be graduating from college.
But we loved seeing her again. The kids took turns showing off.... Madison dancing and acting like a teenager, Jacob doing every flip and kick he could think of in his bag of tricks, and Macy, of course, playing the new songs she's learned at guitar lessons... "Mary Had a Little Lamb" and "Twinkle Twinkle" -- not exactly what she envisioned with the whole guitar thing, but I keep telling her... "You've gotta start somewhere, honey!"
Thanks Caroline for coming by -- we all miss you!!
Sorry about the poor image quality -- my camera battery's dead and I had to borrow Jonathan's awful digital camera. By the way... DO NOT EVER WASTE YOUR MONEY ON AN OLYMPUS STYLUS 740 -- It takes the worst pictures I've ever seen. Jonathan bought it because you can take it something like 200 ft deep into water.... and we all know how often we need a camera when we are 200 ft deep in water! It was a must-have! I think they made a mistake though... I think it just LOOKS like you took the pictures in 200 ft of water -- they're horrible and grainy and unfocused. Buyer Beware!!!
