i thought you might like to see some photos of a typical morning around here. well, not *exactly* typical. about five minues later the sirens started.
maybe you've heard about our wild weather here in the midwest? we are grateful to have avoided the worst of it--or more accurately, it has avoided us. we are mindful of our neighbors in joplin, MO (about two hours southeast of us) where the destruction and loss of life...well, you've probably seen the reports.
not to change the subject, but i caved and let olivia start reading the fifth harry potter. i guess i decided it might be dark and scary, but at least it isn't real.
she's pretty into it, can you tell?
