Stroll for Epilepsy


I'm looking for a few good people to join my team to Stroll for Epilepsy on August 14th in St. Paul. If you are interested, check out this link to the site:

If you are unable to be on our team, but would like to donate to our fundraising account, please go to this site:

Our goal is $2500, and I'm sure we can do it, especially if all our CaringBridge and blog readers tell their friends. I don't normally ask for favors, but I'm asking everyone I know to either walk with us, donate, or tell a friend (or all 3!).

If you'd like to be on our team, please email me at, or call me at 319-352-4122. I think it would be fun for us to all get matching team t-shirts; I could design and get them screenprinted.

I'm hoping for a good response from this posting...

Family Pics

We had our pictures taken last night, by Shelly Delagardelle of Peekaboo Portraits. She also did our maternity pics when I was pregnant with Sylvie. She is awesome to work with, and super talented. I put a link to her site under Some of My Favorite Sites. If you go to Gallery, then Expecting, there are 2 pics of us. Check it out!

Here are some more pics from Chloe's dance recital last Sunday. She did so well, actually participating and not crying at all!

Chloe's First Dance Recital!

Chloe had her first dance recital today, at the Gallagher Bluedorn Auditorium in Cedar Falls. At the dress rehearsal yesterday, she cried both times she was on stage, so I was not sure how today would go. I have a bunch of pics to post, but they have to be resized. For now, I just have one that I worked on in Photoshop tonight.

New pics of the girls!

I haven't posted any pics of Chloe and Sylvie lately, but that doesn't mean I don't have any! I take about 500 photos a month...thank goodness I have a digital camera, or we'd be broke! haha!

A few more flood pics...

We went downtown last night and I walked around a bit with my camera. These pics are from behind the dance studio where Chloe has class every Thursday night....not tonight, though!

Wow. Waverly has been hit pretty hard by flooding. Our house is about 5 blocks from the floodwater, which has begun to recede. Yesterday we went for a walk, and I took my camera. Here's what we saw:
