Hello again. I've been gone a while. Labor day weekend was busy at Mom's. We did a quasi-evacuation and ended up staying an extra day courtesy of Hurricane Gustave. The only damage to our home was a fallen crepe myrtle. Craig and our wonderful neighbor, Larry, put it back up with the help of some other neighbors. The kids were out of school that entire week. This past week has been busy with preparations for Craig's departure to Istanbul, Turkey. And football, dance, and cello. I also need to call the piano teacher to set that up. The baby got 2 new teeth on the 5th, top right middle and eye teeth. Her left eye tooth cut through on the 11th. She also got 1/2 of her first flu shot. She is not anemic. She weighs 16 pounds, 2.5 ounces and is 27 inches long. Tiny. Hurricane Ike came through last night and today. The same crepe myrtly hit the ground again. Maybe God is trying to tell me something! Joe went to play at a friends house tonight and then went to football practice. He was in a foul mood while on the way to practice, but all the shoving, hitting, and testosterone helped his mood considerably. He was quite the helper by carrying in the 5 gallon water jug in and then nearly broke his thumb putting it in the dispenser. Guilt, guilt, guilt. Ice, ibuprofen and hugs. Erin was great at practice tonight...the in-car DVD player is worth its weight in gold. Craig left today for Istanbul. Crossing the Causeway with winds gusting to about 45 miles/hr was interesting! After a near ticket fiasco, Craig went to Dallas safely as the Chicago flight was cancelled. He made it safely onto a flight to London. On the ride back across the lake, a spray of water actually hit my car. That was a new one. The baby is playing with the kitten right now, holding a small piece of cardboard for her to jump at. Lots of baby laughter. :)!
I miss Craig already.
