Our fifteen minutes

...starts now!

In April, our garage was chosen for an HGTV Lowe's Garage Makeover for Dad. After a crazy few days of logistics and then a wild day of shooting (obviously in the garage...

Girl Scout Bridging Ceremony

Today the girls "bridged" from Daisies to Brownies (for Jenna)...


 and from Brownies to Junior Girl Scout (for Melanie)...


And yes, they literally walked across a bridge...


... and got their new "tags" from their troop leaders.


It's a good thing we practiced this morning!
