OK, even though I knew I would not be able to blog while the computer was in the "hospital" I took pictures anyway. This episode of "Scenes From Lisa's Life" was funny. The camera was acting up and this is the only picture that was remotely focused enough to show you.
Madeline and Sadie came in with underwear on their heads acting like superheroes. Cracked us up. This is Madeline as "Underwear Girl". Even Anna wanted in on the act. She kept patting her head saying "panty". They went and got her some, too, so she was "Underwear Girl-ette".
On Friday (I can't remember which one, so much time has passed) the girls were part of a group of students from their school who all went to play games with retirees at 3 different retirement homes. These people played cards, chess, bingo and candyland. We went to the "Waterford" retirement home. This is Sadie playing with one of the lovely ladies who attended.
You may wonder why some things don't faze me or Conrad. You know, things like eating while changing diapers, watching a bunch of kids all at once out in the street while at the same time making sure they don't get run over by cars, finding a new box of cereal spilled all over the living room carpet (well, that one does get to me),etc. Well, it's because those are all simple things to deal with after you have to dress a child like this picture above. If you can enlarge it you will see Conrad is putting on Anna's shoes (to what purpose, I don't know, they're just coming off in the next 5 seconds) while she is essentially standing on her head. You try that sometime, it's not as easy as it looks. But, it sure makes the rest of life a little less threatening.
Sadie started playing baseball. Here she is in her uniform. She's a "Husker". At least her uniform is a normal color. Mads uniform for soccer her first year was bright orange.
Sadie during her first "at bat".
Madeline at the ballgame.
As an update: Sadie had two games this weekend, one yesterday and one today. Yesterday she got as far as second base (on a walk). They tied that game. Then today, she walked both times up to bat and crossed home plate both times. They are now 1-1-1. I'll keep you posted.
