Opening Day

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.

I think it's safe to say they like each other.

And now a visit from Connie and Sarah

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.

She was watching us through the camera.Arron didn't score any bonus points with Sarah when he questioned her choice in headwear.

I think he said her hat looked like something a cancer patient would wear.As they were leaving, Sarah was still not happy with the comment and didn't want her picture taken.

'No!  Don't take my picture!'Anna waved good bye for both her and Zeke - he was sleeping in the swing for most of the visit.

Bye-bye Nonnie!

Caleb came to 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.

ni ni Caleb.

Nah, that wasn't the only picture.  We pulled the blanket back too.

Train up a child in the way he should go

...and when he is old, he will not depart from it.

That's right - we're reading 'Cubs 101.'

Anna's Hog

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?


Mama mama mama

She was so happy to be on the bike.
And just as happy to have her O with her.
Poor Zeke missed out on all the excitement.

Guess who's been here?

Anna certainly loves her letters. It's nice to see her share with Zeke.

Letters are Anna's calling cards.
