So, I don't know how I got roped into this, but I am co-starting (is that a word?) a brand new Brownie Troop. Actually it's been kind of fun. I found myself looking for anything I may still have of my own Girl Scout Days. I came across this really bad photo of myself...pulling down my dress that was probably riding up! Back then we had to wear a complete uniform. Now they get away with just a sash. I also found my sash which is totally filled with badges, my little dues purse, my girl scout cap/hat and some thing that went around the arm and pinned onto the shoulder. Hmmm... I can't seem to remember what the heck that was for. I'll have to ask my mom, she was the leader of my troop. So now you could all see what a dork I was!

...Blaise (aka Blazer). If you talk to Nicholas you'll be sure to hear Blaise's name several times in conversation. Usually he'll add his name on the end, like "I love Mommy and Daddy and Sophie....and Blaise". You would think he is another member of our family. I had to post a picture of him so you out a picture with his name.

There's no mistaking the distinctive sound of the hot air balloons. On a typical day here when he have crisp cool weather there's a good chance of a hot air balloon siting. On Saturday we heard the whooshing sound of the fire while out on the porch. Sophie and Nicholas were so excited to spot one out back. (It doesn't matter how often we see them, they get excited every time!) I quickly ran in to grab the camera. I usually never remember to get a shot of them. So as we are watching the balloon we see a second balloon. Now the kids wanted to follow them. Pretty soon we see a third and then a fourth! This time one of them got so close that we were able to hear the people in the basket saying hello.....really cool. I picked a great day to remember to get my camera. There is something magical about a hot air balloon!
