our little kindergartner received the "sharing award" from his class. we always knew what a good boy he was, but it was nice to have it reaffirmed by his teacher. she told us that isaac is always so nice in class, shares things, & is a good helper. way to go isaac!
and of course, he couldn't have the spotlight to himself ALL morning...that would just be way too much to ask.

on sunday afternoon, lauryn started to complain that her thigh was hurting. she hadn't injured it, hadn't been horsing around, hadn't done anything to it that we could recall. there were no bruises or bumps...nada! all we could figure was that it must be growing pains. that night right before it was time to go to bed, she started crying because it hurt so bad. that was when i started the tylenol. she proceeded to cry out in pain every few hours, sometimes waking up, sometimes just crying in her sleep. at one point she woke up to eat a waffle before heading off to bed again.
on monday morning after the interpted night if sleep, she woke up in pain...she refused to walk on it so i had to carry her everywhere. and anytime i lifted her up, the tears started to flow again. so i continued the tylenol doses and put the heating pad on low for her to use. she wouldn't let me change her out of her pj's so we went to the bus stop with her dressed in her pink jammies because we had to pick up isaac. lauryn was not happy about this at all. between the crying and the attitude, i was pooped...and so was lolo. she took a 2 1/2 hour nap but woke up in pain still. finally, at 4:20, she was ready to try walking. she held my hand & walked gingerly on the left leg & was so proud when she could do it...it was so cute, as if she was learning to walk for the first time. after this feat, she thought she could tackle a bath. after that, she was miraculously cured! whew!

dennis after a game of flag football...doesn't it look like it was a fun game? i think i actually had to throw that t-shirt away because i couldn't get it clean. look at how his face lights up from playing sports. i couldn't imagine his life (or mine for that matter) without sports.
he almost looks kid-like in this picture. there's something to be said about playing a game of basketball, football, volleyball, softball, etc. that makes you feel youthful & puts a spark in you. then you hobble home & remember that you aren't 16 anymore...so you watch more than you play...or you coach your kids...or you cheer on your favorite teams, even though they are awful...whatever it is, it's fun!

even though lauryn doesn't show her dad love very often, she still loves him...
even if she won't give him a hug...
even if she won't give him a kiss...
even if she won't cuddle with him...
but isn't it the greatest show of love when you share something that you really love, like, say a bubble gum sno-cone?
