When Kait gets her hands on our cash

Kait completed a vehicle sale for us today because we couldn’t be there and instead of texting Rabbit to let him know it was done she just sent him a picture.

Then she texted, I hid them all over the house. #Scavengerhunt.

The humor is strong with this one.

Our Saturdays are football

Surprisingly, we have cell service right now at the football field, though limited, which means I might possibly get to post about football, which seems to be all we do lately.

Sam’s team just won their game 38 to 6 and that’s a great start to the day.

We still have 3 more games left before our Saturday is over. Ben’s team, Matthew’s team, then Gabe’s team.

Here is Sam in the red on the left hand side of the picture.
The boy is 8 and is so obliviously happy about life. If you ask him how football went he will always say great! no matter what happened.

image

Ben’s up soon so I’m going to see if this will publish so I can pay attention to his game.

Go Patriots!

Coffee and a paper

The Pensacola airport just got a Chick-Fil-A which is pretty cool, I guess, except that I don’t fly so that location’s number 8 grilled chicken club sandwich meal (BACON!) really does me no good.
My oldest son made quite a bit of money on opening day, however, and that is why he thought I would like to have this particular page of the newspaper.

I can neither confirm nor deny that Joe is in the above picture.  There are state secrets, national secrets, international secrets, and then there are Chick-Fil-A secrets. 

Don’t mess with the cow, people.

The one where Sam fails at catching a kickball

On Sunday Gabe inflated our brand new kickball and took it outside to play a little ball with Sam.  Instead of catching the ball when Gabe threw it, however, Sam blocked it with his palm in such a way that it caused his bone to buckle just above his wrist.

image

What bothers me so much about this, other than Sammy’s arm being broken, is that I called to try to make him a doctor’s appointment Monday morning and only got an answering machine at the Navy clinic here, which is typical. After 3 different appointment lines and no actual person to help me, I called the nurse’s hotline to find out if I should take him to the ER.
The nurse said No. Wait 7 days and if it is still hurting him and it’s still swollen then call the clinic here and make him an appointment.

Good thing that I am a more paranoid mom then that.  I took him to the ER that afternoon.  Xrays showed a very defined break.
The next day, yesterday, the Navy clinic wanted to see him and take more xrays, which also showed a very defined break, but they had to forward them to a bone specialist or someone because they don’t do casts.

I felt like Sam passed a test or something when orthopedics finally called today to have him come in and get a full cast on. As soon as they saw the xrays they were all like, can you get him here within the hour?

Sam is quite proud of his broken bone and the resulting cast for right now.  I’m sure that’ll change before too long though. 

We know how to start Spring around here for sure.

It’s finally spring almost.

It’s 85 degrees and it smells like sunscreen and dirt and wet bathing suits. 

image

The younger kids want to live outside.  They want to eat outside and play outside and sleep outside.  The older kids complain that it’s too hot and I remind them that we live in Florida and they should stop complaining because they know what hot is and it is not 85 degrees.

I live for this time of year. 
I love living in Florida.

Did you see Seattle win yesterday?

image

Yesterday’s Seattle/Green Bay football game was the absolute best game I’ve ever seen.¬† Rabbit is a strong Seahawks fan so there was a range of emotion in our living room as his home team scored 15 points in just 44 seconds, closing a 13 point gap and taking the lead with just 1:25 left in the 4th quarter.

I’m a Patriots fan myself, being born less than a hours drive from Gillette Stadium, and was happy to see them shut down the Colts hard yesterday. ¬†However, that game was a total bore compared to the dramatic last 4 minutes of the Seahawk’s game.

With our two teams both now headed to the Superbowl in two weeks, that Sunday afternoon is going to be interesting in this house for sure.

Jesse is officially six.

Yesterday was Jesse’s birthday.  We got him a cake and I put some dinosaurs on it and you can see from the expression on his face that he was quite satisfied.

image

We also got him a small tablet, to which he replied very stoically, It’s a tablet. Yay. And then he proceeded to play with the $1 dinosaurs.

He’s easy to please for sure. 

I can’t believe my little chubby Jesse Wayne is so big.

Where does the time go?

Florida, you are drunk.

So, this is the screen shot of my Accu Weather app this just now.  And apparently it got even colder in the night.  This here is it starting to warm up.

image

I am more than a little disappointed in Florida right now and I am not sure if I should go ahead and get up or just call today an accident and go back to sleep until tomorrow.

I am supposed to be meeting a friend for coffee down at the Drowsy Poet in just a little bit so I guess I should get up even though my bed has a heated mattress pad and a really good pillow.

Becky: this is a statement of your worth right here.  There are not many people for whom I’d leave the house in this kind of freezing.

Maggie in the kitchen

Maggie turned one year old 2 weeks ago and suddenly this cupboard has become super interesting.  She is always opening and peering at its exciting plastic contents.

image

Last night, however, she kicked out up a notch and emptied the entire thing out in record time, then got up and walked away from it all.  She wasn’t interested in organizing, or lid/bottom matchup, or food storage. She was bent solely on destruction.

And this is how the second year of life goes around here. We will spend much of the next year putting our food storage containers back into the cupboard.

An unlikely hero with a string.

This string is a piece of magic.

image

After an hour or so of jiggling and jimmying and scratching our heads we managed to open up Kait’s car, in which she had locked her keys, with this black string.  It was a last ditch effort before we called a lock smith. 
And it was completely my idea.

So I get to be the hero on this night, which is pretty cool, but I wish it was a paying position.
