Weekend of July 8th

Hey. We’re in Washington, DC. Yes, it’s a little bit too much travel too quickly, but it couldn’t be avoided. Hence my tardy post. Also, perhaps some slacking tomorrow.

My children were keeping me humble today. Four actual quotes, all today:

  • M: “What’s that on your shirt?” [answer: streaks of deodorant]
  • M: “What’s that on your chin?” [answer: a pimple, and thanks for noticing]
  • J: “Mommy! You’re supposed to say excuse me when you toot!”
  • J: “Mommy, I’ve noticed that since we came back from Lake Placid, there are a lot of cobwebs around here.”

Ah, aren’t they adorable? At least they don’t read and comment on the blog!

M’s doctor’s appointment went better than I feared and not as well as I’d hoped. She’s healing nicely and is cleared to go swimming, while wearing water shoes, starting Monday. I’m anticipating a chilly, rainy day on Monday.

Here’s what I’ve found for this weekend:

  1. Lisa

    Forgot to send this to Katie earlier (sorry!!)
    2011 USATF Region One Junior Olympic Track & Field Championships
    are happening at RPI this weekend. If you love track and field (or not) this is the place to be!! Sat. is the big event for our household and most likely the day for readers of this blog (kids age wise). You don’t have to come for the WHOLE day (like us…), but it’s a great chance to see a possible future Olympian! and it’s FREE!
    Here’s the link:

  2. Umm, Lisa? You’re tardy. I have strict deadlines here. No, no, no–thanks for adding. Are E or the boys competing?
