Danger Zone

Cam loves slides. From the first moment she could walk independently, she sought out the slide and found it to be as thrilling as she imagined it would be. Even though she has taken a few painful tumbles on slides, she is undeterred. Given the choice of a slide or a swing, she'll head first to the slide.


One of Syd's best friends the past few years has been Isabella. Syd says that Isabella is her friend "because she teaches me things. She taught me to run like a horse." Isabella is a sweet friend who often gives her friends, such as Syd, little gifts.

Lex's Last Day of Kindergarten

Lex's kindergarten teacher was Mrs. Wren, the same teacher that Syd had the year before. Both Lex and Syd felt great admiration for Mrs. Wren because she fills her classtime with fun art projects. She also runs a tight ship ,and we appreciate how Mrs. Wren has taught each of our daughters to have more respect for authority and to excel academically. In our house, Mrs. Wren is an institution. Kingergarten IS Mrs. Wren. We can only hope she is still teaching when Cam reaches kindergarten age.

Syd's Last Day of 1st Grade

Syd loved first grade because she could stay at school all day, eat lunch with her friends, and enjoy two recesses. Here she is with her teacher, Mrs. Kildee, on the last day of school.

Syd (Father's Day)

For Father's Day 2007, Ann took photos of each of the girls so that Scott could have updated pictures for his office at work. This tradition of giving Scott updated pictures of the girls for his office began with Christmas 2006. The 8 1/2 x 11-inch pictures on Scott's wall of each of his daughters have become the defining visual element of his office, and they generate a lot of comments.
