PIcture Day

I’m headed to Seattle for the Emerald City conference. Yup- a few days early since I want to peek around a little en route- I’m driving the 8 hours to get there. In the meantime, for your viewing pleasure:





Last week I mentioned being gone to Canmore with my family. That’s about an hour’s drive outside Calgary, Alberta, where I grew up. We took my mil and had a great time in the Rocky Mountains.

We walked and sat in the hot tub and played cards. Way to relax. It’s probably one of our last family vacations as my son will be headed to college in January (OMG, that’s enough to freak me out–thinking about him being old enough to go to college!)




We’ve always done a ton together as a family-homeschooling has allowed us to get out and take some pretty amazing trips into the wilderness at times of the year you usually can’t get away. With my son now done grade 12, there’s only Tutty left, and she’s got a few more years. So I think I’ll take her to Mexico for a field trip. Sound good?

The other fun picture to show you–I got my hair cut! I loved my hair when it was super long, but found I was constantly wearing it in a ponytail. I cut it short in stages this time, and I really like the current length. So now I have an official author picture! Wheeee!!!
