Ironic??




Natalie is knee deep in a home improvement project, scraping wall paper in her living room..... once the wallpaper was removed she discovered names of people that lived there before. In 1956 they signed the walls. The ironic thing is that Warren McElwain was our judge over the adoption process.......the same little boy that grew up in Natalie's house 52 years ago. So, we had to get pictures of that before she painted. Life has a crazy way of bringing people together. Who would have thought that the little boy, (only 8 years old) that lived on Cherry St in Cameron, would grow up to be a Judge? It makes me wonder......what life has in store for my kids. What will they decide to be.....where will they end up? hmmm

That is so weird. It's like your own edition of "If Walls Could Talk." I love that show! We signed the ceiling on our house on 4th street before we sheetrocked. Maybe someday someone will find it.

It is a small world that is for sure!
I was just thinking about what Daniel will be when he grows up today. We were driving in the car and he announced that he just can't wait to grow up and go into space. I realize that the chances of this happening are slim to none, but it still makes me grind my teeth whenever he mentions anything about being an astronaut! I'm keeping my fingers crossed that he will end up with a nice, boring desk job that is safe!

That's so cool! So, are you gonna let the kids sign your walls? :)
