This is what happens when he decides he no longer needs his state quarter collection. (I think Big Sister may have something to do with it when she counted them and informed him that he had $19 in quarters.) One trip to the toy store later…
Also, in Great Kid Quotes, this is what the youngest asked very indignantly upon driving up to the store:
“Hey! Where those people put my binkies?”
(He had used all his binkies to “buy” a new tricycle last month.)
I can’t believe my baby girl is 9! I also can’t believe how I keep falling more and more in love with her every day. She is such a great kid. Fearless. Creative. Compassionate. Artistic. Imaginative. Book loving. Easy going. Kind.
We had a great day celebrating yesterday. Pancakes and bacon for breakfast. A new sewing machine for the aspiring fashion designer. Ice skating. Swimming. Ice cream. Movie night. Falling asleep in the living room.
I’m not even thinking about the fact that she is half way to 18.
Happy birthday Miss A. I love you!

I bet this is the last time he skips church in favor of a bike ride!

After his crash, he was taken to the hospital and was discharged a few hours later with a separated shoulder, a right side covered with road rash, stitches above his eye and a lot of “maybes” (i.e. maybe you have fractured ribs, maybe you have a fractured sternum, maybe you have a punctured lung). We went home until the morning, at which point he woke up and couldn’t breathe.
One collapsed lung later, he was admitted to the hospital.
It must be the pain meds making him smile.
