Good morning everyone! It is hard to believe that it is Monday already! Our household, emboldened by the new looks of spring blooming forth across our state, spent the weekend in obtaining new looks themselves!
- Kayla’s Braces
- The most important new look, of course, was Kayla’s braces. The people at Allen Orthodontics on Friday were just super with her, as they always are, and she has been a trooper about her mouth and the soreness that comes along with the first few days of braces. Sunday we stopped for a minute, and she let me take two pictures of her with her braces.
Because she said the sun hurt her eyes, we took a second picture, too.
- Mom’s New Look
- Then it was my turn. I spent Saturday morning getting my hair colored, so Kayla wanted to take pictures of me with my new hair color on Sunday.
- The Escape’s New Look
- We also had a trailer hitch put on the Escape on Saturday, so that we would have a way to pull a light trailer that could carry Mark’s scooter back and forth to the Suzuki place for servicing.
- While the most important new look in our house was Kayla’s braces, the most spectacular new looks are with the trees and flowers around us as spring approaches. Here are some pictures of them:

Here are some daffodils that have grown wild on a hillside:
And here is a close-up of another group of daffodils that have just started a new clump across the street from the ones on the hill. In a few years, they will have the ground covered!
The last new look in our household was Mark’s. He originally intended to rest on his laurels with the truck, but a small “oopsie” by him, followed by a bigger “oopsie” by me led to an entirely new look for him also. But that post will have to wait for another day! So, COMING SOON: The Accidental Haircut!
