The Young and the Restless

In regards to the boy on whom Caroline has had a crush all year, on the way home from school today Caroline declared from the back of the car, "Ben must really be getting to love me because he never roars at me, he never attacks me, and he never makes me dead." That settles it: he's a keeper!

Coach Daddy

So, at the risk of bragging... my sweet husband is currently the coach of the #1 NAIA basketball team in America. 17-0 or 0-17, we're super-proud of him.

Going, going, GONE!

Due to some problems with her ability to hear, Caroline got her third set of tubes put in this morning, her adenoids out for the second time, and her tonsils out. After the surgery, the doctor said that her hearing should be much better and without those "rotten tonsils", she should have a much easier time with breathing and just staying healthy, in general.

As for the patient, she is UNBELIEVABLE! We have heard a lot of horror stories over the past week, and though we have a ways to go, she has proven to be her usual tough self.

Here's our baby girl, pre-op and very excited

Although she woke up from surgery crying, "I don't like my throat. I wanna go home" she has rallied. She's drinking, eating, smiling, and watching lots of tv. Who could ask for more?!

Superstitions aside...

Channeling a little of our own Tebow Magic, the Hawks are now 15-0, and ranked #2 in the country! If you're interested, you can read more.
Two big games coming up at the end of the week...

Bye Bye, Baby!

He may still walk around the house with a pacifier in his mouth, but Jack has passed a milestone, moving him even further into the "toddler" world: no more crib in the room! He was so excited to do it, he wouldn't even let me finish our usual routine reading of Goodnight Moon. Unlike Caroline, who experimented with climbing the curtains on night 1 of a big bed, this little guy laid down, went to sleep, and stayed put until we woke him up the next morning. Sweet dreams, Little Man; don't grow up too fast!
