Caitrin and I spent the night in Chicago celebrating her 11th birthday at the American Girl Place. It is the pilgrimage of all middle class girls her age and younger. Kit, Caitrin's doll pictured here, was one of two dolls we brought with us.

Here are two more shots. I have lots more that I'll put on flickr tomorrow.

What will they do next?

What will they do next?, originally uploaded by juliecinci.

Our first meeting of the Post-Homeschooling Entrepreneurial Network (horrid name which is the first order of business - changing it to a better one!). Of course my electricity went out that afternoon while the brownies were cooking, I hadn't yet vacuumed nor showered and blown dry my hair. Ergo, Cindy (yellow top in front) called everyone to convene at Panera). As I drove to the YMCA to shower, Jon called to let me know the power had returned... Too little too late.

We met here instead and pretty much took over half the eating area.

The goals of PHEN? Help moms transition into work that earns money using their gifts and talents, many of which were revealed during years of homeschool. We had a great first meeting.

Before the fall...

a little marred paradise (the drought killed the grass, but the trees stayed mostly green).

This is my view when I work. I've always loved it.

Unlike some of my favorite photobloggers whose toothbrushes look more like works of art than tools to clean teeth, I took Colbert's approach to this meme and decided to reveal the way things really are chez moi.

Toothbrush or Sex Toy?
