I haven't felt much like blogging over the last sevearal days....I'm not really sure why. I guess I'm in a "blogging funk."
But, to not disappoint my readers (how ever many that may be), I am making a post about odds and ends.
1) I took Luke to the doctor the other day for his 2-year check-up. He did such a FANTASTIC job at the dr's office. I was VERY proud of his behavior.
Once we got into the exam room (which, fortunately, was not long at all), Luke patiently read a book while waiting for his doctor.
And, because some of you have asked....Here are Luke's stats from this very appointment.
Height: 35 inches (67th Percentile)
Weight: 29 lbs. (63rd Percentile)
Head Circumference: 20 inches (93rd Percentile)
2) A little known fact about Marc and me -- We both REALLY ENJOY watching the Tour de France cycling race in July. For those of you unfamiliar with this race, it's the three-week cycling race in Europe -- primarily in France. Many of you reading this blog would perhaps find this race incredibly boring. We, however, enjoy it for many reasons -- the team strategies behind it, the sheer endurance of it (the riders pedal nearly 2,200 miles in a three-week time period), and of course, the European scenery. Both Marc and I have been in Europe, and we one day hope to go back -- hopefully, to watch part of this race. Each July, when this race is on, we get a strong "itching" to travel to Europe.
And, you might know this -- this is the race that famous cyclist, Lance Armstrong, won 7 times (1999-2005) -- even after fighting a cancer battle.
Today, cyclist Alberto Contador officially won the race...He's from Spain. It wasn't, unfortunately, a stellar year for the US riders. Perhaps next year????
So, this is what our TV looks like throughout a good portion of July...
3) Tomorrow (Monday, the 26th), our oldest niece, Grace, turns 5. Last night, we traveled to my brother and sister-in-law's home for her party.
Like a good grandmother, my mom gave each grandchild a little something -- even though it wasn't all of their birthdays.
Luke received a cute little Thomas train. It was a HUGE hit! He wasn't so much interested in watching it move across the floor as he was in how the wheels worked. I'm starting more and more to see signs of Luke being really interested in how things work. He'll probably someday be the child who takes apart something and works for hours putting it back together.
4) Marc is directing a 5 km race (run or walk) on September 18, at 5:00 in the evening. It is via our church....It is called "Run for Hope." Unfortunately, I can't give away too much more information at this point because some of the details are still "being ironed out." But, if you're local, we'd love to have you come out. After the race, there will be a BBQ and a concert. This race will be in memory of and in honor of cancer patients.
I will post more on this blog when more information is available. Also, our friend, Jess, will most likely be posting something on her blog as well....Stay tuned!
