Our First Date!

Fifteen years ago today, Anna and I went on our first date!

We met for supper at the Marco Polo Chinese restaurant in Roswell. I'm not sure she realized it was a date, since her main objective was getting me to come speak to her fourth grade class, but I thought of it as a date.

It was also, coincidentally, the same day that I bought my first digital camera (a Kodak DC210 Plus, which I still have). I used it to take a couple of pictures of us that night, though not together:

I was only 32 in the picture above, and Anna was only 23 in this one:

We went out again the following Saturday (August 14, and it was clearly a date--I made sure of that when I asked her to go), this time to the zoo. Here's a picture I took that day of Anna and her cats:

Happy Anniversary, Annie! I'm so happy to have you!

A Trip to the Zoo with Elyse

Today Elyse and I went to the zoo! She starts school the week after next, so we don't have too many days left to go on these adventures.

We rode the carousel and the train! (But I didn't take any pictures of the train.)

Jessica's First Day of Second Grade

Today was Jessica's first day of second grade!

She's in Ms. Ward's class this year, up on the second floor of the building. She was nervous this morning, but also excited.

Elyse spent the night at Granny and Pa's house last night so Jessica and Anna and I could watch a movie the night before the first day of school and have an evening focused on Jessica, and so I could walk Jessica in this morning.
