Christopher's first day of kindergarten, on August 18, 2003. Our shrubs in front of the house have grown as much as he has since then.
My brother is a software engineer and yesterday he emailed me and the other three sisters (he's the only boy) and told us about something he and his tech-geek friends discovered. It's very cool in a way, and kind of creepy on the other hand. Check it out. Click here, then type in your address. Hit enter, then in the little white window, click street view to see a picture of your house and neighborhood. It's so bizarre to me. Apparently Google went around with a 360 degree camera strapped atop cars and took video of houses and neighborhoods all over the country. I looked up my sisters', brother's, in-laws' addresses and saw their homes as plain as day. Our home is kind of blurry, so I dug up this old one with a cute little redhead in it. I saw the boat in the driveway of Kelly's parents' home, plus our old Jeep that they bought from us. In another family member's home video, courtesy of Google, I can see that my sister-in-law must have been having a playgroup or meeting the day they dropped by unannounced because there were several vans parked in front of her house. You can click on the arrow and drive down the street virtually, following the white line, and use the arrows to turn it around to look all around you. Apparently Google is being sued because they photographed some private property. It blows my mind how much time, money, and effort this must have taken. In some of the angles, you can pan down on the image and actually see the vehicle that the photos were taken from. It's freaky!
