Lazy Saturday

Not really much going on today. We walked a couple blocks over to look at a house that has recently come up for sale. Then over to Starbucks to get some crack, also known as the Venti Chi Tea Latte with 2 pumps of pumpkin spice. Norah has been playing with her toys, Glen made fajitas for linner (lunch and dinner) and we both managed to get a short nap. Seems like it is turning out to be a pretty good day. Here are some random photos from recently around here.

 "Fashion Disaster" day at school. Norah was not real sure about leaving the house dressed like this.

 Norah showing off her outfit she picked out and that she did her own hair. I think she used a half a bottle of conditioner to slick it back.

Blue Skys

The computer has been giving us fits lately. So instead of blogging we did what everyone else in Seattle did over the last week and spent a whole lot of time outside. We took some cheap kites and snacks and went down to the beach. I think every dog in Seattle was out with their owners. We also started an eight week Sign Exact English class and cleaned the carpets. Which reminded us both why we do not like carpet. Wood floors are high on our priority list when we start looking seriously for a house.
I found out that there are some words that I can not say at work because the southern accent does not translate well here. For example Fluoroscan (x-ray) sounds like fore skin when said with the accent to a bunch of northerners. You should have seen all the heads whip around when I said it and true to OR form I have been teased daily about it since the incident.
Norah got her first report card and I went to her first teacher conference. She is amazing ya'll! We just know that once she gets all the basics down that there will be no stopping her. In our signing class we met another deaf, adopted child/young man that was adopted at age 4 and is now 19. He went to the same school that Norah is at and is incredibly well spoken and articulate. Just one more thing to let us know that we have Norah in the right place.
