A little Vacation Bible School

Vacation Bible School was tons of fun.  The theme was the Jerusalem in the time of Jesus.  I helped out and so did Zippy and my in-laws.  I was especially proud of my nephew who played the shofar to call the children in morning from the playground.

Happy Father's Day

In what has become an annual tradition here on the blog, here is my Father's Day message to my Dad:

This year I turned 40, so I thought it would be fun to come up with one way my Dad was awesome in each of the decades of my life:

1. He hung my drawings up on the wall in his workplace, when we were separated by an ocean - I was about 4 at the time.

2. He took me with him to work, which involved traveling across country.

3. He dressed up in funny, period clothes, endured a cold day outdoors to give me away at my wedding.

4. He plays blocks, Legos, and puzzles with my kiddos.

Happy Father's Day

He Won!

The Little Dude graduated from preschool (finally), last week.

As part of the celebration they have a Rain Gutter Regatta.  The first year the Little Dude was in the hospital so he couldn't even attend.  Last year he just did not get how to work the boat so did not advance past the first heat.  This year.....

HE WON first place.  Dad was proud, so was this momma.

My week was hijacked by a moment.  That was all it took for the Little Dude to tumble down the last few risers of our staircase.  It didn't swell up and he could wiggle all his joints, so surely the arm was not broken.  He went on with the rest of his day, favoring it a bit but otherwise just fine.  The next morning when he woke up it was swollen and hurt so I took him into the doctor, who immediately sent him for x-rays and sure enough he broke both bones in his forearm.  He got a splint from his pediatrician then a cast from the orthopedic doctor who says he will probably be in a cast for 6 weeks, but needs to see him again for x-rays in 2 weeks to be sure it is healing properly.  Looks like a water free summer for the Little Dude.  Oh and I need to go shopping for more button down shirts.
