I've been posing with lots of cows lately. This is the most recent one, taken by my friend Nelleke today as we toured the Fort Worth Stockyards. My internet name is Cowtown Stacy... and all these pics with cows are cracking me up. Gonna make a fun scrapbook layout!
Aidan's "suffering" from Strep Throat and Scarlet Fever, but I say "suffering" in quotes because the kid simply doesn't act sick. AT ALL.
This is either the mildest case of the two ailments in the history of childhood, or we're on antibiotics for nothin'. Seriously. He is FINE. After one dose of the medicine, he declared himself well. LOL! Good thing he has a Momma around to forcefeed those next 9 days' worth of pink medicine to him.
We're supposed to be camping tonight with the Thameses and Carmans, but we decided instead to keep our monthly date with the Fort Worth Symphony Orchestra. I slept through the first half, but Darren enjoyed it very much. We'll join our friends at Mineral Wells tomorrow morning, bright and early in time for breakfast, unless tornados scatter them and their belongings overnight. Thunderstorm warnings and tornado watches out there tonight. HOLD ON TIGHT, FRIENDS! :)
I know that Dani is my kid and that I'm a whole lot biased, but DANG if that girl ain't the most talented kid I've ever known. She's a songwriting fool these days, pounding out really good lyrics and plucking out groovy tunes to go with 'em. Tonight, she wrote a puppet script for a local church puppet team (they've asked her to write it every year for the past 4 years), and when I read it tonight, I LAUGHED OUT LOUD, not once, not twice, but 4 or 5 times! I never knew that Moses and the Israelites crossing the Red Sea could be so funny. She's a gifted writer - way more so than I ever dreamed of being! Tomorrow, she's off to Solo & Ensemble Choir competition. Good luck, Dani!
UPDATE: She got a "1"!! Dani's goin' to State. WOO HOOO!!!!!
When I read this a year or so from now, I just want to remind myself that tonight, while leaving the Symphony, I was staring at his butt, and mmmmmmm. He'll hate me for this, but hey. He knew what he was getting into when he married me. :D
