I Won’t Give Up

Amanda told me today that Milly was singing a song in the car (either to or on the way back from dance class) and wanted to teach it to me.  It was I Won’t Give Up by Jason Mraz.  Milly didn’t feel like singing it to me for a while, but she eventually did, and even though she didn’t know most of the words, it was very sweet.  I love hearing her sing.  I didn’t get a video of her doing it, but here’s the song. Amy dropped Max off this afternoon.  They’re going out of town to see their new nephew, so we’re watching him until they come back.  We kept him and Harvey outside for the majority of …

Recital Outfit

Rained pretty much all day. Milly got back into Sims last night and spent some time playing it today. Told Milly if she didn’t listen well at dance class she’d go in the corner when she got home.  Amanda said she was good.  They also got to try on their recital outfits.  Amanda said as soon as all the girls put them on they really became dancers. Had a video shoot meeting this evening downtown.  Didn’t pan out because the client forgot.  I rescheduled their client, whom I was going to be shooting.  Took a scenic route home to look at some of the swampland around Wilmington. Amanda, Milly and I played Just Dance for a few songs.  Milly quit …

Box of VHS Tapes

I was up a little early once again this morning.  I did have an epiphany though.  I mentioned that one of my clients was having some email trouble.  Well, it stemmed from a backlog of spam-related bounceback messages, but I couldn’t figure out why the account was sending them.  Anyway, I figured that out and that seems to have fixed it. We went to church this morning as usual.  The David and Jamie were right in front of us in the Grow Zone line.  Milly played with Noah and Aaron.  David’s grown a beard, which I think looks good on him. Anna sat with us this morning.  Barry was giving a talk at Treasure Island in Leland.  For a long …

Not Dakota’s Birthday

Milly came into our room at about 1:30 this morning and told us she wanted to go downstairs to watch TV.  She was very upset that we wouldn’t let her do that.  I was sitting on the floor holding her and explaining it to her and, tired, I told her she could get in bed with us.  Or maybe Amanda did.  Either way, she slept with us for most of the night.  Keep in mind that we didn’t get in bed until sometime after midnight after playing Catan with Reece and Stephanie. Anyway, I thought Milly mainly did alright.  She did put her knees in my back at some point, and I think she scratched my back.  At another point …

Morning Dance Lessons

I didn’t get my workout in this morning because I was busy from the get-go, but a little later in the morning Milly decided to show me how to exercise and then proceeded to instruct me in a dance class. So that’s got to count for something, right? Amanda had bought some avocados for some guacamole a little while back and they were starting to go bad, so she made some more tonight for small group. She also made some cupcakes for Cyra’s birthday at work tomorrow (her actual birthday is Friday) and we took a few extras along to small group too. Amanda asked Milly if she wanted to try any guac, but Milly said she didn’t want any …
