Final Swim

Today my parents had a garage sale as they prepare to 'move on up'. It was blazing hot (go figure - summer in Texas) and after we closed up shop, everyone decided a dip in the pool was in order.

Zachary is no longer afraid of swimming and was like a little fish, splashing everywhere and swimming with his 'swim jacket' all the way to the deep end and hanging on the diving board.
(All this was diligently supervised by Grandma T.)

Very Sad

You never dream that you will outlive your baby. My sweet friend is going through this right now. Please keep her and her husband in your prayers for comfort and healing as they deal with this tremendous loss.

Rubik's Cube

I solved a Rubik's Cube today!
Zachary got me one for Mother's Day, with an instructional DVD. With the help of the DVD, I got it solved. It only took 1.5 hours. :)

This is especially exciting because as a child I messed one up so badly that my dad said it could never be fixed. Hmm... I wonder if that thing is still around...

Sophie's Test

Sophie has this test she runs when someone besides Mom is staying with her. She cries, cries, and cries some more. If you come back again, she's usually pretty good. I guess she figures if you come back for seconds after the crying fit, then you're worth getting to know. Man, she's tough!

The End of an Era

It's the end of an era, folks. The Bennigan's on South Hulen Street has been demolished. I noticed it on the way to Tee Ball tonight and recalled the good times there. It was the site of post football game hang outs, the place of employ for my former boyfriend, Barf, and the location of my first legal drink (my birthday was on a Monday, and who else was open on a Sunday night till midnight, but Bennigan's).
My best memories, though, include many fabulous Brownie Bottom Sundaes that Erin and I could eat in about a minute and a half (no lie) and all the great girl talk and bonding done before and after.

RIP Bennigan's.


I realized today that my kids eat like I did when I was pregnant with each of them.

Case in point:
  • Zachary: grilled cheese, mac & cheese, milk, treats, treats, and more treats. No lie - I actually got a note from the doctor saying it was OK to eat sweets.
  • Sophie: everything in sight. Seriously - if it doesn't eat her, she will eat it. Pot roast, steak, pork loin, veggies, fruits, breads, turkey, cheese, pasta with sauce, you name it, she likes it.

Oddly, they both like fish sticks. How on earth that happened, I will never know!

Another "Graduation"

Zachary "graduated" again from his Little Gym class. He received a medal, and did a great job showing off all his tricks. Grandma T and Sophie were along to share in the fun times.
