Catching up again!

once again, lots of things have been happening in the Martin household and dad is behind as usual, getting them posted. It's been so busy and right now i have a full-blown cold/bronchitis spell so on a 'miserable scale' i'm at about an 8. Here's what else has been going on:

5/27/08 - Josie found these "special" rocks in our driveway and told me to take a picture and put them on her website...

5/31/08 - Bob, myself and a couple guys from our Band Of Brothers (Wild at Heart) Bible Study ended our study with a campout at Living Water Ranch, just north of Manhattan. This is where we will be having our Wild at Heart Boot Camp in September. This is the view from atop the "Jesus" hill overlooking Tuttle Creek. You can't see well from the small photo but there is a bird that regularly sits on the left side of the cross.

6/5/08 - i finally get to start building my study/office!!! Taylor and i were scraping up all the linolium tile off the plywood (that covers the hardwood floors). Josie wanted to do whatever she could to help out. Here she is cooling us off with a handheld fan.

6/5/08 - A bird has made a massive nest above our back door. You can see the entry hole in the middle of it.

6/6/08 - Josie's shoe finally came in with the lift built into the sole. She walks really well with it. We thought it'd take some getting used to. that's a half inch lift. she'll need at least an inch before her hips really level out. she has immediately noticed that it looks different and bigger. we are trying to reassure her that it's not that noticeable. we need to get a couple more pairs made; one for gym class when school starts.

6/6/08 - last night was "Dreamnight at the Zoo" put on by the Capper Foundation for all their special needs kids. this is Josie's 3rd year going. she had a rain make up t-ball game that was scheduled for last night but she wanted to go here instead... good choice.
that's it for now. i am supposed to be ripping up the plywood flooring in the office today, but i feel so miserable it's hard to get motivated, but i can't get behind either. i want to finish the room by the end of summer. Taylor has a game this afternoon in the 90 degree weather. i imagine my miserable scale will be 10+.
