Nick showed up about 2:00 to saw and at 3:30 the neighbor came by to cut as well. Emily and I hauled all the logs to the big pile. At 6:00 dad got home, another neighbor stopped by and the guys drank beer and the work ended. LOL
Some more shots of the moose in the garden.
She's sticking her tongue out at me... na na na na!
Staring longingly at the pool.
Emily, Olivia, Lucas and I drove down to Anchorage and spent the day school clothes shopping. This is Emily with Daisy who is Mandy's sister.
The little ones really liked Build-A-Bear.
Then Dorene took us all out to a very fancy dinner at Kobe.
Look at Lucas' face!
In the morning we drove out to Chugiak for Elijah's football game. He's #13 this season. He played offense, defense, punter and field goal kicker. It was really hot and since his accident his brain doesn't control his body temperature correctly and he has a tendency to overheat. Well, it happened and the next thing we know it's half time, he's on the ground vomiting and almost non-responsive. Then they cooled his body down too far and he was hypothermic going into shock about to get an ambulance ride. By the 4th quarter they finally got things straightened out and he went back into the game. My life with Elijah is never dull.
Jessika and Dorene went to the game to cheer him on.
After the game I got "Homer" tattooed on my ring finger. It's my first tattoo.
Instead of riding the bus back Elijah stayed with us. We played board games until late. My kids are so happy at Dorene's house and they cry every time we leave. They are really good people.
On the drive home it rained the whole way. Boo! The kids slept and I was on my own to entertain myself. Funny how the 360 miles there is always so quick, but the 360 home takes forever.
