It is especially sad to see this stadium burn because the whole community had just put a ton of work into raising 4.5 million dollars to save it. Now all that is left is the rubble.
The fire only added to the ridiculous amount of heat we have been having here. Eugene is usually so pleasant during the summer. If you can make it through all the rain during the winter, and get through the early grass seasonal allergies by the time you get to mid June things are usually perfect. The mornings are cool and sometimes a little rainy and the afternoons are just the right temperature to enjoy some time at the pool. Not so this year. We have been roasting. Little Ike made his appearance just in time to experience record heat. I just thank my lucky stars that I'm not still pregnant.
I took another half million pictures to try to document how this boy looks and how much he already has us all wrapped around his tiny little fingers.
Daisy has had her fair share of freak outs too. She usually saves her explosions up and has about one a year but there have been a few flare-ups. The other day she and Rocky were fighting over a Pirate bandanna with drastic results. Rocky put it in her mouth and Daisy pulled it out and along with the scarf came a tooth. Incidentally both Brandon and I each lost a tooth in a similar situation with a sibling so we were not as surprised as we could have been.
Once she got over the shock Rocky was pretty thrilled that she had a tooth to put under her pillow and in the end I think it sort of broke the tension that had been building up between the sisters and they seem to be getting along a little better.
Along with her tooth she left a note.
(I thought she was being pretty diplomatic calling it an accident.)
But we somehow soldier on in this crazy home of ours and everybody seems to get along in the end.
And a few more baby shots.
And one last picture to finish things off. I found this hanging on Rocky's wall. It speaks for itself.
