Josh's musings

Today we made a trip to the store and when we were getting into the car, Hannah asked me if it hurt when I had her. I told her that it hurt a little bit. Then, Josh asked if it hurt Daddy when Daddy had him. I laughed and asked him why would it hurt daddy? Then I asked him if he thought daddy had him because he was a boy and mommy had Hannah because we were girls. He said yes. Then I explained to him that only girls have babies and not boys. Thankfully, that's all the further we've gotten in the "baby dept. discussions" but it was funny to hear him ask such a thoughtful question.

I found this on a website and thought it was interesting. You can find this question and others here.

Write about a time you cheated and got away with it. How did you feel?

I cheated in 10th grade in Chemistry class. I was terrible in Chemistry. I remember Mr. Luidahl giving us these chemical equation worksheets and we had to balance the equation. You know, there is just some point where you quit after you have 36 hydrogens on one side and 24 on the other and you have been balancing the equation for 1 hour. So the morning after these worksheets were handed out, I would gather with my friends in the library and copy their answers. After all, I was just trying to keep my sanity right? I actually don't feel bad about this because Chemistry was a really hard class and Mr. Luidahl was a really hard teacher. I tried to understand but for the life of me, I was not cut out for Chemistry. To this day I still don't like that subject! At the time that I was cheating, I knew it was wrong and that I should really try to understand it for myself but I was so desperate to save my grade (and my toush) that I really didn't give it much thought.

Hannah's 1st Game

Hannah had her first soccer game/match, whatever they are called, today. The coach rotated everyone every 5 minutes so they all got a little playing time. Her team didn't win but they did a good job. She's the one wearing the pink socks in case you couldn't tell. Here are the pictures:

Keira's 2!

This last Saturday, my niece, Keira, turned 2. They had a family party and the kids swam in the pool. The temp was 83. I am a chicken so I don't get in until it's a lot warmer! Here are some pictures of the kids (William, Candace, Emily, Hannah, Josh and Keira) in the pool.
