Just shoot me!

K has a couple of big projects due on Monday so while she is busy this weekend doing homework I was busy working on homework of my own.  I am taking another photography class-this one is on photographing  people.  This week's assignment was to photograph a group of people.  No easy task!  My sweet friend Lisa loaned me her kids and after much effort I got one acceptable photo.  

V is not only beautiful and photogenic but she was very co-operative.  No so for the other two wild Kazak children!

Wind, rain and hail

Our spring journey break got off to a slow start.  Our flight to Maui was delayed for an hour because the AC on the plane was broken.  Then we boarded the plane and we were delayed again because there were no briefing cards in the seat backs.  I can't make this stuff up!  We finally took off and after about 5 minutes in the air alarms started going off.  The flight attendant was frantically talking to the pilot on the flight attendant phone. The plane turned around and finally the pilot told us were headed back to the airport.  When we landed the plane was surrounded by fire trucks and we taxied to the gate.  We were then told to stay seated and firemen in silver suits with giant axes boarded the plane. They finally let us off the plane and never did tell us what was going on.  We had to wait 5 hours for another plane.  K and I bought almost every magazine at the airport.  We finally got to Maui at 2AM or 7AM Atlanta time.  We were pretty delirious!  Thus was the start of our rainy and windy trip to Maui.

Finally some sun!

Enough with the pictures!

Another blustery day

Spring Break-Part 1

K is out of the first week of March for Spring break and then she is out of school for the first week of April for Easter break. We are headed here this year instead of here.  Aloha!

K ran in her first 5K last weekend. Our good friend Ginger put on a race to raise money for an orphanage that she works with in Haiti. The weather was beautiful and K and I had a great time running.
