So, our entire family traveled up north to Michigan Tech University's Winter Carnival. As soon as Jamie decided to go to this school, we put it on our calendars to visit for the famous event. The population of the local towns double during this weekend every year.
Part of the big attraction of the event is the amazing ice sculptures. The theme was "stories". The Campus Crusade group put together this beautiful Bible story sculpture. I think they got first place for the campus organization category.
The next sculpture was hilarious in my mind. All of the other ones were an obvious allusion to some famous story (the Bible, the Hobbit, the Three Little Pigs or Alice in Wonderland for example).
But not this one.
It was just a great big 42 and "don't panic" at the bottom.
On my facebook page, I have this as my profile pic with the caption, "I'm trying not to panic, but how did they know I was 42 this year?!!" I wonder if all of the other people born in 1969 did the same thing?? What? Are you saying that they didn't??
And her family (below). Don't you love them?
Don't they look normal? except when they don't?
Joanna bonded with the girls just fine.
Saying goodbye to my warrior-college student, son.
This is the sculpture his ROTC group worked on--3 little pigs. Our oldest AND youngest together--two bookends.. What a fun time!
