In spite of that, or maybe because of that, I am posting photos today.
The first is of my sister Mary, 17 years my junior, in a very fine plum-coloured coat on her way home to Kenora after a conference in Ottawa. We breakfasted, I abated her desire to shop, and we had a very nice Chinese food family dinner one evening. She does not have a piece of white chalk embedded in her head.
The next two are of Robyn and Maddy on a very important day. Because their mom is going back to work, Robyn is going to a new day care and Maddy is going to her first day care. This was them their first morning, on their way. There are no on their way back photos but I am assured that had there been, the girls would have looked as smashing and confident as they do in these.
this last is Maddy eating rocks, which is why we can't leave her at home while Emily is at work.
