I've started a project to scan, organize, and eventually put online as many old family photos as possible. I found this one in one of Abuelo's albums. Anyone know who the child is, and why his family may have chosen to pose him uncomfortably nude with a frightening stuffed bird and rubber turtle? And notice the flower antennae coming out of his head.

Proof that Lee was always an actress

First Day of Summer School!

No more daycare for Lily! She started summer school today, at the same school she will attend in the fall. She took it in stride, but Mommy and Daddy were a little nervous. She came home wired and happy, so we think she liked it, but we can barely get any information out of her. Except that her favorite part was the donut they gave her for breakfast. Donut? Really? Why not just straight sugar cubes?

New shoes, skirt, top, backpack, and hair flowers. Plus her fingernails were painted purple.

Happy 4th of July!

Lily and I started the day down at the Archives, where we have a ceremonial reading of the Declaration of Independence, and all sorts of fun family activities.

Speechifying is boring!

Speeches over, got a temporary tattoo, when do the fireworks start?
