No, I Did Not Hit Him In The Face With a Ball, Jeff

Charlie lost his first tooth at the soccer tournament today. He ran across the field to give it to me and I promptly lost it. Luckily, big brother came to the rescue and found it on the chair.

Isolation Causes a False Sense of Self-Importance. Who Knew?

I was a little concerned that my isolation would cause some deep psychological trauma to Charlie.  I have been in the house, but not allowed to see, talk or touch him for 10 days. I was worried that he wouldn't understand or think I didn't  WANT to spend time with him. Apparently I need to get over myself.

Charlie peeked into my room tonight and asked how I was doing . I told him that I get to get out of my room tomorrow. He jumped up and down, clapped his hands and said: " Good! Then you can spend a perfect day with ME!"

I think he is going to be ok.

I Feel Ancient

We are talking about the American colonies in class. I was trying to explain how long ago it was. One student raises his hand and says: "You mean like in the 80's?"

Celebrating 65 Years

Our friends Steve and Karen also happen to be the owners of our favorite restaurant. They made a special dinner for our family, complete with a personalized menu. It was delicious.
