Glenn's first Cross Country meet

I have no idea what place he came in, and I don't care even a little bit (I do know that he wasn't last.)  Personally, I couldn't run across the street if I were being chased by a madman with a knife, much less run a mile...  Glenn walked some, but not a lot.

Anyhow, I'm just so flippin' proud of him, I can hardly stand it. 

Walking in.  (I just love the back of their shirts.)

Sean doing... I don't know.  I said, "Look at me."  This is what I got.

De-leaving the tree.

Coming up a hill.  He's still running.

I'm not sure why I got this look.  I'll assume it's 'cos there's a bottle-neck ahead of him & he had to walk.  Yeah.  Let's go with that.

Running again.

Time for some cartwheels, of a sort.


Coming up the last hill!

He's smiling!  (I'd be dead on the ground, probably.  Definitely not smiling.)

Approaching the finish

Dang people in my way!  That's his leg, there, as he crosses the finish line.

Thirsty boy

Runner Number 302

Had to have some time on the playground, after all that.

Trying to catch up would be pointless...

... and take an eternity. So, how about I just throw some current pictures up, like it hasn't been a year or so since my last post? I haven't figured out how to work this new blogger format, so I can't caption pics yet.  Darn it.

Tonight was a lovely evening for some boys to play basketball.

First, the boys were playing randomly on their own - Sean with the basketball and Glenn in the trees & bushes.  (The picture of Glenn looking like he's hiding is really him sitting on the bball goal, trying to protect his head from over-shoots.) Then Scott suggested they play a game of "HORSE", and proceeded to explain the rules to the boys.  I have no clue what the rules really are, but Glenn was making some pretty interesting, and complicated, moves to be matched.  I was told - repeatedly - to put the camera down during the attempts at shots that included hopping, skipping and butt-wiggling, so there's no proof of any of that.  But it really did happen.  And Scott won.  (As you can see, Noodles was terribly excited by the whole thing, too.  Or maybe it was the freshly fertilized grass. Or both.)

Out of Order - Sean's first birthday

This has been a "draft" for 3.5 years. I think I put it in hold until I could come up with some witty captions, but that (clearly) never happened. So, here are some old pics.

Has it really been almost a year?!?

I'm not even going to try to recap the last 10 months.  There's just no way.  I am going to try to better about putting pictures here instead of Facebook.  Maybe.  Best laid plans & all that...

Anyhow, here are a couple of pictures from our trip to Great Wolf Lodge, the weekend of August 4/5.  We didn't take any pics in the water park, but be assured that we ALL had fun!  The arcade was an even bigger hit than it was last time (especially with Granna giving out the money to play with and Ethan winning a bloomin' ton of tickets to give to the boys to 'spend'.)

 (Of course, Glenn remembered to pack his grumpy pants...)

Today (8/9) I persuaded the boys to let me take their pictures on their favorite "run up and down and give Mom a coronary" hill at church.  I can't believe they've gotten so big!!

Libraries aren't just for books, you know.
