Did I mention the crummy internet connection?

I’m here in Lakeway, Texas visiting my dad and his wife. My son has been playing golf for the past 2 days. He just left for a private lesson, then 18 rounds with my dad. The Internet connection here is pretty lame. Sometimes I am able to leave comments on other blogs, sometimes not. However, almost without exception, I cannot leave comments on my own blog. Thanks for all the great feedback on yesterday’s post. I’ve checked out a couple of the blogs some of you left links to – very cool.

My daughter and I have been hanging out by the pool (even though it’s still a bit too cold to actually swim). We went shopping for tennis shoes yesterday, but somehow ended up at Justice for Girls, where we bought everything but tennis shoes. I’ve also been playing around with my camera, so I’d thought I’d share some pics with you peeps. I’ve even taken the liberty of making a couple of my own motivational posters. The shorts picture is not my own. I found it on the Internet, but it captures my discussion with my 7 year old daughter in the dressing room of Justice yesterday. Back to my usual thought provoking, deeply intellectual postings tomorrow. For now, please enjoy my lame photography skillz:

Flippin’ Sweet!

First things first: Do you know what happened on this day in history, February 10, 1996? If you’re a big chess fan then
a) you probably wouldn’t be reading this blog, and
b) you would know that IBM’s Deep Blue defeated chess champion Gary Kasparov.

But another very important, life changing event happened on this date. I married the love of my life. I know people always say stuff like this, but I mean it when I say that I don’t know where I would be without him. Or maybe I do and I just don’t want to think about something so depressing. Without him, I doubt that I would have stepped through the doors of a church again. Can you imagine how completely unbearable I would be if I didn’t have a relationship with Jesus? For this reason and countless others, I am quite literally eternally grateful for my husband. I love you, dear. This is for you:Okay, so I realize that it’s almost Valentine’s Day and whatnot, but I just now figured out how to make a movie with my very favorite Christmas gift, my new flip video camera! I’d never even heard of it before I opened it on Christmas eve. Here are three movies I’ve just created. George Lucas, eat your heart out!

Here’s me opening another one of my favorite gifts. And yes, my family IS that loud and obnoxious all of the time, so I come by it naturally.

(My son can barely contain his excitement at the thought of his mom taking over the Wii. And yes, those are the infamous plumber’s crack jeans.)

Now, here’s a gift for my son from Grampa (thanks, Dad):

And because I’m a proud mama, here’s my son Cameron knocking the snot out of a golf ball:

Yeah, he’s 11 years old, and he’s a REALLY good golfer. How far does he drive the ball? Consistently over 200 yards. (I know, I know…I’m bragging.) But still, pretty cool, huh?
