What a cutie!

I found this picture yesterday when I was digging through some old photographs. This is my youngest, Neil. He's eight now. I love his smile and crazy blond hair. This must have been taken around 2003. It was taken at the East Glacier Park Lodge. It's a beautiful place, but it's a little ways from the park itself. The irony of this picture is that it was our very first trip to northwest Montana and to Glacier National Park. Now we live just an hour from the west entrance of the park. Who would have thought ...

In other news, Lydia Kang at The Word is My Oyster gave me the Blogger Buddy Award. Thank you, Lydia! I'm not sure of the rules of this particular one, but I would like to pass it onto my fellow blogger buddies ...
  1. Terry Lynn Johnson -- who posts cool outdoors pics.
  2. Kimberly Lynn -- who suggests great picture books.
  3. Nora MacFarlane -- who always has great tips for writers.
  4. Elysabeth Eldering -- who has a fun geography book series.
  5. Kelly Polark -- who's blog features just about everything.


  1. Mucho Gracias for the award and the shout out - lol. Every bit will help me get to Savannah this year for the National Council of Geographic Education's conference - woohooo - See you in the postings - E :)

  2. Amazing what those old photos remind you of, isn't it?

  3. Thank you for the award, Rena. You're an amazing writer and friend. I have such a weakness for picture books. There are quite a few novels I'm looking forward to reading this year, though. BTW, I love the cover for A New Fried for Dilly--so cute!

  4. I meant to write A New Friend for Dilly! Argh.

  5. Aww - Neil is a cutie pie!
