Debbie just sent me this picture, so I wanted to post it. Bottom row is me, Dan, and Debbie, and top row is Molly and Diana. Nancy was the one who took the photo, but she was there too! She was nice enough to take a family shot so we'd be able to have a picture of us and "the aunts." ":-) This picture was taken in the Capitol building, right before it started thunderstorming like crazy outside. Fun fact: The capitol building in Austin is the largest in the country - it's even bigger than the one in DC! We also noticed that the chandeliers are in the shape of a star, and the door hinges are engraved with a star and the word "Texas." And you think taxpayer's money gets misspent....
Oh, and I've gotten a lot of questions about ringworm, so I think it's time for an educative lesson about it. First of all, it's not actually a worm, but it's a fungus. That comes from .... POOP. Ewewewewewewwwwwww. It's spread by skin-to-skin contact. The kids from Talitha Koum get it a lot, and I most likely was holding a baby who had it, which is why it's on my arm. To treat it, I had to buy some cream from the grocery store - the same stuff used to treat athlete's foot and jock itch. I also had to buy Selsum Blue, because it has anti-fungal properties and I'm supposed to use that as a body wash so the fungus doesn't spread. Right now, I just have a bubbly red circle on my arm. Any other questions? Anyone want a hug?
