I played student to Chris' teacher this weekend. In an effort to be a good wife and try to understand some of what he does i made a "Flemonitor" as Mitchell calls it (thermometer). This was a project that his students were doing in class today that he wanted me to try. He was Tricky McTrickster about it...laying out all the parts and getting set up and then telling me that we were going to make it. By then it was just too late to argue. I made it start to finish from all those itty bitty pieces you see there....and used a really hot, stinky soldering(did i even spell that right) iron. I have never touched one before in my life. I will admit that completing it and it working was satisfying on some level, and the iron thing was fun but i don't think i need to use one again. Does this put me on the Chris path to nerd-dom now?
My name is Leslie. I live in Virginia. I am a wife to Chris, a super husband/great daddy/army officer/PhD student. I am a mother to three very exciting kids, Avery and Mitchell, ages 11 and 9 and baby Delilah who is 3. I am a little crafty. I love fabric, quilting and I love my friends and family. I hope here I can keep up with all of you that are so very far away.
