And, here's the soccer pro. We had soccer for the first time today. Ty loved it and can't wait for next week. We were a little bummed that Ty didn't get to be on Connor's team. That would have made it so much more special. That bottom picture is courtesy of Kari Yearous. She took an awesome shot of Ty yesterday at her house and I just had to post it.
I'm finally on the mend. I was seriously under the weather all week last week, but I think I'm seeing the tail end of it now. Now, if I could just get rid of the cough, we'd be perfect.

Deke still has that nasty cough so he had to stay home while I took Ty to the lake for a bike ride. We biked all around the small lake. It was a bit chilly, but we had fun. On the way there, I thought I would see if Ty would know which way to go if I told him to move left or to move right. I didn't want to have any accidents while out there and some of those other bikers and rollerbladers are moving fast. I was trying to think of a way for him to understand this and thought why not just ask him if he knows it. Sure enough, the boy knows his right from his left. I was shocked. When I asked him where he learned this, he told me that he just taught himself. At any rate, he did very good on the trail when I would tell him to move over to his right, he always moved in the right direction.

Yesterday was another beautiful day and we went to the park. Deke has discovered the joy of sliding and was heading to the tallest slide he could find. Fortunately Ty would go with him and hold him as he slid down. I really wished I would have taken my camera because it was really cute.
I had the other four cavaties filled today. Not as bad this time since the shots were in the upper jaw. Apparently, the lower jaw is way worse and I can vouch for that. I took a book on CD today and it made the time fly. It was over before I knew it.

On Friday, Joel and I took a vacation day and spent some quality time together. He really spoiled me that day. He let me sleep in while he took the kids to school. I got to sleep in till 9:30. That's just crazy. He then made me a delicious breakfast of eggs and bacon and he even bough orange juice to go with the meal. We took a nice walk around the lake and when we got back, he made me an even better lunch of Alfredo Primerva followed by Bananas Foster. Best desert I've ever had (and that include resturant deserts) We got a nap in the afternoon and then went and got the kids. What a fabulous day. I'm truly spoiled.

I'll explain the title in a minute. The snow is melting! So that is one bright side to this day. It's been rainy now for the past three days, but it's getting warmer so I won't complain too much about that. This picture was taken a couple of weeks ago when there was still a lot of snow on the ground.
Today I made a co-worker mad and that in turn has made me sad. She is a fabulous designer and turns a lot of my ideas into works of art. But she got upset with me today when I suggested we make a change to a website we are working on. We've just started this. Nothing is completely concrete and yet she is resistant to changing a few things that might make it better. I just really feel we are too text heavy on this site and need to use more graphics. The original was my idea anyway so I'm not being critical of what she's done. I'm being critical of what I told her to do. And now I want to fix my mistakes before we get too much further into this project. I understand that she's very busy and I hate arguing with anybody much less somebody I respect and like, but it is still in the early stages and now would be the time to make changes. I feel marginally better now that I got that off my chest. Let's hope tomorrow is better (and I get my way with little fuss :).

It's a four day work week for me this week. Joel has a super special day planned for us on Friday. I'm so excited!

A beautiful Saturday and we took the boys to the park and for a walk. Ty got to ride his bike and he's doing so well with it. I can't believe how fast he's growing up. He bumped his head coming down the slide and now has a nasty bruise. I started my garden today. Tomatoes, green peppers, and strawberries are all planted and in the breezway. Let's hope they do well. Joel thinks I'll be a failure at this and I really want to prove him wrong.
