For those cold days (yeah, right, cold in Texas?)
I'm wondering how come all the other kids are not decked out as much as Dillon & Madison? I guess we got Spirit and they don't... :)

This family has been through the most amazing God-filled walk since Isaiah's accident. They have been gracious enough to share their lives, ups & downs, through their blog.
I LOVE Blogging. And I LOVE stories like Isaiah's.

I've been surfing the 'Next Blog' button for about 20 minutes & I've been all over the world!!
How cool to see what other blogs look like & what people blog about.
I saw a blog from an elementary school class in Vermont. And an artist from New Hampshire. Then a page that looks like it was written in Duetche (is that a word?) Wouldn't it be crazy to start leaving random comments on these blogs? Maybe I could be a pen-pal to someone?
Now he's got a fever of 102 with the same symptoms as last night and now a cough.
We've confined him to his room with a can of lysol.
Here is the website we checked to be sure it's not the Swine Flu. So far we think it's just the regular flu. Ugh.
Scott & I got flu shots but I'm not sure that will save us.

We saw a bunch of geese flying south in V-formation. Not just a few geese. There were HUNDREDS of geese! They were all grouped together in about 15-20 V-shapes. All flying south.
We watched them for a long time & speculated why they were all flying together? Group discount? And then we wondered if geese poop while flying, like other smaller birds. Do you know? Geese have those small dog-size poops - Can you imagine one of those hitting your windshield? Ew.
The temperature was a little cooler yesterday... Like 71. Remember that temps have been in the 80's & low 90's most days.
Anyways we drove past a man walking with his son who looked to be about 5-yrs-old. The boy was wearing shorts and a full-out heavy winter coat. Zipped up with the hood & everything. Scott & I busted out laughing. Until I shared that I had my seat-heater on too. Yes, I'm a wuss.
All the committees in our neighborhood HOA (home-owners-association) had a meeting at the pool. Since we live so close to the pool (and because Scott didn't go to the meeting) I volunteered Scott to be on the Pool Committee. :)
Scott & I went to the gym because Scott's back has been giving him grief since our trip to Kansas. We should go more often - but geesh! Who has time when we have 3 busy kids?!
We took Dillon & Madison to a church youth group in Hutto. It's at a church called LifePointe. We've had a great reunion with several families that we knew 10 years ago! I think the kids enjoyed the Youth Group... now we need to get them (and Scott) to join the worship team...
I had a urologist appointment in the morning. Yes! Slept in an extra hour!
We watched the Iowa Hawkeyes be victorious over Arkansas State. I watched 'The Matrix' for the first time. Good movie... Ahhh... now I get it. Jared had a 'ride-out' with an ambulance crew in Austin all day. I think he got some good experience since the ACL Festival (Austin City Limits) is going on in Austin. I bet EMT's rarely have boring days... We also looked at Halloween costumes for a party we've been invited to... do you know how many disturbing costumes there ARE?!
We went to LifePointe Chuch this morning & got home just before it started raining cats & dogs for a couple of hours. I bet we got close to 3" of rain. Yay! We could use it! Then we grilled beef fajitas & shared with our neighbors, Nick & Jessica. A little bit ago I had a good conversation with my mom & now I'm ready to get to bed before another long week begins. G'Night & talk to ya later!
