Josie was so tired this morning that she just couldn't seem to stay awake. so when we made her get off the couch to get ready to go, she preceeded to lay down on the kitchen floor. Poor baby. Life is rough when you can't get catered to 24/7.
As far as other updates, We took taylor to children's mercy yesterday to meet with a neurologist about his migraines he's had for some time and some head tics he's been displaying for the last couple months. She thinks a daily magnesium suppliment will help his migrains and for his tics, she assured us it was completely normal for kids at this age to develop quirkly little compulsive movements and they will pass.
Cami's back seems to be getting better - or at least not hurting as bad. she is trying to start dancing again, but her back is quickly speaking it's mind about the decision. She is struggling through some equally challenging 'teenage' drama. she has fully entered the "parents don't understand" phase that we all battled through. and it's been a troubling battle for us parents too (in regards to what cami is dealing with).
To end on a positive note, you may recall last February Bob and I got to go a men's retreat in Colorado. and from that has birthed a men's ministry we've begun. WELL, we just received confirmation that we've been selected to attend the "advanced" version of that camp - back in Colorado - this March. We are so totally freaking excited right now!! for more info on our ministry, please visit: http://www.wildmenks.com/
OH, and as a post script to the photo above. you'll notice, just to the left of josie's face is a black tube of chapstick. that girl is a chapstick JUNKIE! she puts it on all day. and she doesn't just put it on, she rubs it in each corner a number of times, then she makes a couple passes across her lips, then she makes two or three passes around her mouth, above and below her lips on the skin... it's quite entertaining to watch.
