I'm trying something new this morning-- blogging from my phone. I am currently sitting at the orthodontist's office watching my sweet Elinor get braces put on.
Well, in other big exciting news. This is one of those weekends where everything on our lives converges into one crazy wild ride where we all try to support each other, and just try to remember to eat at regular intervals, and wear clean underwear.
Clark left this morning for the first of three days of the Utah regional for FIRST robotics. It's a very big deal and we could be more excited. Today (Thursday) is really a day of practice rounds and getting the lay of the land. Tomorrow, and especially Saturday, are the big leagues with qualifying matches, alliance picks, and hopefully onto the finals.
The late evenings have been taking a toll. Earlier this week Cannon spent a night throwing up. Peter had more tummy trouble and Elinor got pink eye. But the show must go on!
And lastly, in the thick of all these exciting life events, we had to get the brakes of the mega-van done. Not a huge problem, rather an inconvenience. As soon as that was done, Abe's minivan started making a bad sound and the engine light went on. Hmm. That's probably not good. Thankfully my sad has let us borrow a car while we get Abe's situated. Exciting times!
But really, in a family of 9 (almost 10), when isn't life exciting? And thankfully, its mostly exciting in good ways.
