It's the first day of the basball season. Anna and Zeke wore their Cubs garb to the sitter's. Since she is a White Sox fan, we had to give specific instructions that Anna and Zeke were to come home in their Cubs clothing.

Two days after Caleb left for more singing on the road, Connie was in town! Connie came up from St. Louis to visit and as usual, she stayed with her BFF Sarah in Chicago. They stopped in to say hello and get a free meal from us (we ordered pizza).
Anna loved playing with Connie's phone.
Arron didn't score any bonus points with Sarah when he questioned her choice in headwear.
As they were leaving, Sarah was still not happy with the comment and didn't want her picture taken.
Anna waved good bye for both her and Zeke - he was sleeping in the swing for most of the visit.

Caleb is in the A Capella Choir out of Concordia University - Nebraska. Since they had a stop in Valparaiso, we went to go see them sing. As an added bonus, Caleb came home with us to spend the night!
We came home late and stayed up even later talking. The next morning was busy getting ready, eating breakfast and out the door to make it back to Valpo in time for his bus departure.
But we did manage to take a couple quick pictures.

Okay, so maybe it's really not a Hog, but Anna loves it just the same. Anna and Daddy took the trike for a spin today. Anna's still a little short for it - she has a hard time reaching the pedals, but she's more than willing to give it the old college try. But can she really do a college try since she's not in college yet?

Zeke has discovered his tongue, so most of his waking hours are spent sticking it out at people (mainly me). Let's hope he gets this out of his system by the time he starts school, otherwise he'll be getting into trouble a lot!

Last winter we got Anna a new hat for this season. She wasn't too happy when we pulled it out the first time to wear it, but after that first night, she's been pretty excited about wearing it. She puts in on herself - considering that it's a bomber style, sometimes the ear flaps are in interesting positions.
Maybe she likes it a little to much...

Yes, we were out and about last month and realized as we were heading home that kitty was left behind somewhere. While we have 4 of them and generally give Anna a clean kitty daily, there were a couple reasons we were compelled to get a replacement.
First, we felt bad. It was similar to when Tom Hanks lost the volleyball Wilson in the movie "Castaway." Poor kitty was laying abandoned somewhere, seemingly discarded and unloved and we felt horrible (and responsible).
But we also wanted to replace him because we were afraid that whole scheme would come tumbling down like a house of cards. Now that one kitty was gone, we were going to lose a second and a third. That had to be stopped and quick!
The replacement kitty has arrived, and Anna is none the wiser.
