Back in the driver’s seat!
The 3rd first day of school photo this year…. first day of last year….
First day of her senior year, only thing she had to do was pictures for yearbook.
Sam is going to miss me as I drop her off at the airport….
never mind, she is fine.
Back porch ‘smores
An early morning bike ride, a new route to stretch the distance.
But still across the Linn Cove Viaduct and it’s freshly paved surface.
Then time to hike…. my original planned trail is closed, so we started up Rough Ridge Trail
it’s very rocky….
then over the top to the Wilson Creek Trail to make a loop.
A great day along the Blue Ridge Parkway!
First college visit: Appalachian State
A good day, Insomnia Cookies, wood oven pizza and craft beer (not for Sam) and a tour of campus
North Carolina Speaker of House Tim Moore asks Sam (serving as a Page) if the Pages can stay longer as the House votes on the state budget.
Sam stands (upper left) as the House debates the state budget.
Still up there… the vote is happening in the photo.
Sam hands what we think was the voted on budget to somebody…..
Sam’s Prom dress pictures!
I am not a portrait photographer!
and not good at posing, I spent 25 years, not posing people!
But we had a blast.
