Throwback Friday: Paddling the Kids

This is me with two of my favorite kids, Julia (right) and Michelle Bright paddling, I think, at Loch Haven Lake in Roanoke County about 20 years ago. The kids were used as the central figures in my children's book Saving Homer, primarily because of Michelle's penchant for collecting critters. In the book, Michelle steps on her pet slug Sarah and she and her little buddy give it a Viking funeral at a pond close by her house.

I adored these children and miss them still.
