What we do when it's warm outside

Here's what we do when the weather is warm outside.

The Best Yet

Macie played the best basketball game of her life yesterday. Of course there was some incentive involved, but it worked. She was dead all first half, but came ALIVE in the second. The incentive was a $1 for any offensive or defensive move. Her first point the ref was in my way, but it was a side shot, with girls all over her and nuthin but the net, baby.....She then swats the ball away from the girl she's guarding. Her next move is her first rebound of the season, then scores. This is the video. The video starts after she got the rebound (turn down your volume, for the obvious).

With less than a minute left she STEALS THE BALL, DIBBLES DOWN AND SCORES. Again nuthin but the net. I had two freakin cameras and miss this. I can't understand how that happened. So her total dollar amount came to $9.

6 points = $6
1 swat= $1
1 rebound =$1
1 steal = $1
total + $9


Here we are bowling for the first time. Not WII bowling, real bowling. The kids loved it at first, but the mood slowly dwindled. The kid balls were still too heavy for the boys. Macie did alright, bowled a strike and decided that was where her b-day party will be this year. I won of course!

Big Ear

For the past week now Austin's been dealing with a severe ear canal infection. Poor guy was in pain for several days and after taking two antibiotics orally and antibiotic drops for his ear he's finally feeling a little better. However, the inside of his ear still looks milky and his ear is sensitive to touch. I foresee a ENT visit in our near future. Here's a picture of his good ear.

Here's the big, bad ear. It was so swollen and I'd never seen anything like it.

Well here is Eli's face piece he has to wear at night to help correct his under bite. The orange things sticking out are cut up bandannas. They told us the pads on the chin and forehead will chap and break out his skin - which it has a little. I've fixed the problem, though. It now looks and feels better to him. Poor guy doesn't like wearing this. He's very embarrassed by the whole deal, but he's doing awesome with it during the night.

He has a retainer in his mouth. The rubber bands hook onto the retained and mouth piece. I'm hoping this works b/c the alternative doesn't sound good.

I guess Macie's mouth is next..
