Learning Moves

Today wasn’t overly eventful. I stayed busy, Milly behaved throughout the day, Amanda went to work and came home then took Milly to dance class. Milly did get her outfit for her recital which is coming up in June.  Amanda told her she could put it on for just a minute to show it to me, so she put it on and did a few of her moves.  It’s cool that she’s actually learning and remembering them.  A few days ago she was even humming some classical music.  I can’t remember which song it was now, but I think it might have been from dance.  I don’t know where else she’d have heard it.  Oh, Little Einsteins perhaps. Anyway, after …

Louisville and Michigan

I honestly didn’t much care who won the NCAA championship tonight.  I’ve got cousins who go to Louisville, plus they’ll be in the ACC in a couple years, so it adds to my home conference.  They were a favorite all year though, unlike Michigan, and unless you’re going for the favored team, you kind of want to see the other guy win.  (Why is that?) It was a good championship game.  Michigan lead for the first half.  Maybe all of it, I can’t quite remember.  They got up to a double digit lead, then Hancock from Louisville scored back to back to back threes and a couple more points and before you knew it, the game got close.  Louisville ended …

Shooting Up High

I ran a camera at church today, so I was up nice and early.  I wasn’t too tired, despite staying up later than I usually do on nights before serving, and I didn’t even take a nap today. I heard Milly crying after I woke up so I went to check on her.  She said she’d had a horrible dream, but couldn’t remember what it was.  I got her settled down then went about getting ready. The way the stage is set up at church right now the piano and drums are up on a riser a good, I don’t know, 15 feet off the ground?  (I’m bad at estimates.)  I got to shoot up there today, which was pretty …

Puppets and Puzzles

I decided we should do something creative with Milly today, so we helped her make a paper bag puppet.  She mostly directed and we did the work, but it was fun.  A little later Amanda found a 3D puzzle of a stegosaurus.  I can’t remember where it came from, but Milly and I started to put it together.  She was with me for a minute or two then decided to do something else. It was very nice out.  Kenzie and Kimber from across the street came over and the three girls made puppets for Bonnie, whose birthday was today.  I worked on my puzzle in the meantime. A little later we went to a birthday party at Monkey Joe’s for Ashley, …

Catch Up

I have been so, so slack on here. I haven’t even been making notes like I usually do when I get behind. I blame it on a few things. First, I was sick Milly and I both were, but she was for longer. She even had a night where she threw up. It seems like until recently we didn’t have a week go by this year yet where everyone was healthy. Secondly, I blame it on the Walking Dead video game. I was addicted to it, so I had to go ahead and beat it. I was like Heavy Rain, where it’s more like you’re playing out a movie than playing a game. It actually had some touching moments in …
