One Amazing Girl....

Thought you might want to see our amazing girl in action. She has been so determined lately to learn to tie her shoes, inspired to keep up with her sister. The pride on her face is such a joy to witness. I'm sure you'll see what I mean....

Soccer and Surgery....

Last Saturday I remembered to take my camera to soccer, and even got a shot of Jaelyn scoring (albeit, a bit blurry). Unfortunately our team scored more goals for the other team than they did their own, but in this shot Jaelyn was actually scoring for her own:) Go Blue Bandits!


Speaking of soccer, Kaia is not going to be very happy that she doesn't get to play in this Saturday's game. Today she had surgery to reconstruct the wall of her left nostril. It was a one day surgery and things went really well. We started our day there at 7:45, and were out the door by around 12:30. The only hiccup was the puking she did on the drive home, a result of the anesthesia. She is definitely not full speed tonight, but she has not complained of any pain whatsoever, which is especially surprising since they sent her home with Oxycodone. Hopefully we won't have to use it. Tomorrow she will stay home again, but other than a little bruising and swelling, I suspect you won't be able to tell by her actions. We will wait for soccer until she heals a bit more, so Saturday she will have to cheer on her sister.

Busy Week....

The past week has been a very full one. First, a wonderful visit with Jeff and Lorrie on Sunday, where we dined on the last of Mike's wonderful salmon, and the family played Josh and Kellen's birthday present, Rock Band.

Since my first day of school is always followed by an evening Back to School Open House, and it was also Josh's 15th birthday, we decided to have his family celebration on Monday night. Can't believe he is old enough to begin driving!

Josh also had his first football game as a Wildcat, and started high school on Thursday. Tuesday was the girls first day of kindergarten, and as you can see, they were most proud of their My Little Pony lunch pails! I can't believe how grown up they are looking...
