a few more photos from recent outings

Uncle Don and Aunt Mona visiting.

Love this photo of my girls.

Our little model showing her smile on the shore of Lake Tahoe.

Heading out to Andy and Nicole's sailboat in Lake Tahoe. Reminds me of BVI except freshwater.

100 degrees in Reno

What better way to spend a lazy summer day than by the pool.

We love it here in Reno

Andy's boat on Lake Tahoe

So I had a job interview yesterday for a 6th grade teaching position. I felt like it went well but you just never know. Well, by 4:00 I had received a job offer! I'm really excited about the school. One of the coolest things is that my classroom has a "smart" whiteboard. It's like a giant touch computer screen. I can't wait to figure that thing out. Kimberly had one last year in her classroom and loved it.

Also, love the weather here. Yesterday it only got up to 89 degrees and sunny. Everyone thinks it is really hot here but that's not the case. Down in Sacramento it was over a 100 degrees. Love it!

The other thing I did yesterday was meet Andy up at Lake Tahoe for some sailing on his boat. It's a great boat with a built in diesel motor. The winds were light, unusual for late afternoon Tahoe, but we had a great time. The boat is very easy to sail. Should be fun to have access to such a gem. William and Dad the invite has been delivered. Sailing on Tahoe is amazing. I feel like a character from Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous... and it's not even my boat.
