Thanks to all for the love, concern, and prayers. Michael is feeling a bit better today and played for a while this morning without me being 2 feet away the entire time. He seems to be on the "up" side, and Jon and I are feeling better, too.

Michael is sick with the croup, and has been quite the snuggler. We stayed home from church today, so as not to infect the entire nursery with this nasty bug. We spent the early morning (from 3:30-4:00am) in the bathroom with a shower/steam sauna trying to loosen the cough up. Get better, buddy!
Some of you remember that Michael was quite afraid of the vacuum at one time. Jon worked with him to overcome his fear, and now I can't keep Michael away from the vacuum. It is quite annoying when I am trying to vacuum and Michael keeps wanting to grab it. I'm thinking that it might be time to teach Michael to do chores...
On Friday night, we went bowling with our Sunday School class. It was great fun with a little friendly competition. I did score higher in points than Jon, but that is because the guys were bowling for speed instead of score. They had a radar at the end of the lane that showed MPH, so of course, the guys wanted to see how fast they could throw their bowling balls. Fun fun!

Michael likes to scale the utmost heights of the house, using his little chair for a boost. Once, I found him with the chair pushed up to the cabinets, with Michael reaching for a steak knife. I, of course, didn't have time time to grab the camera and snap a picture. He has mastered the stairs, and once the basement is completed- no more gate! (what a pain that gate is!)
Okay, I hope he grows out of this, but Michael has a shoe fetish. If you leave your shoes out, he will carry them around like a prized possession. If I leave the closet door open just a pinch, as I did here, he is is shoe heaven and will be entertained indefintely.

We had the senior girls (like "high school" senior, not "last stop before heaven" seniors) over on Saturday night for a fun reunion of sorts. We watched Pride & Prejudice (the new one), Anne of Green Gables, played Guesstures (you guys DIDN'T beat us, we just never finished!), and shared what God is doing in our lives. We also ate WAY too much- lasagna, cookies, brownies, peanut butter bars, and milkshakes! One girl, who shall remain nameless, even fell victim to too "too many sweets" syndrome. Sorry!!
Michael immensely enjoyed having the girls over. He kept running around laughing and saying, "girls!!"
