Michael Jackson, Farrah Fawcett, and us.

Good Morning, it is Friday.

This blog is about our lives and I don't usually put stuff in the news on this blog, but Michael Jackson and Farrah Fawcett dying on the same day...Wow. Maren said she was at the grocery store on the way home from work and all anyone was talking about was the death of these two generation X icons. Same with all the news stations, and as it should be.

Back to us:

Today we just hung out at home. Hansen and Lillie played outside a little with friends, but mostly just hung out. Preston stepped outside for the first time since Monday. The picture below is what summer lunches look like. I think all three kids enjoyed eating with their friends at school more than at home, but this works. Next week summer kicks in around here as Hansen and Lillie get to go to a day camp at Camp Berachah.

Lillie really liked this drawing, so I took a picture. Her and Preston had fun deciding which part of the picture to erase first once Lillie realized we just could not keep it on the white board forever. I think they started from the center and spiraled outward.
This afternoon I am taking the boys to Olympia for the Hershey's Track Meet, State Competitions. Preston qualified for the Long Jump, the 100 Meeter dash, and the 200 Meeter dash. While Hansen qualified for the long jump and the 50 meeter dash. We are actually going to stay in a hotel in Olympia tonight because tonight is check in for the meet as well as lots of fun activities this evening. The meet starts at like 9:00am in the morning and goes all day long. We hope Preston is well enough to run his best, but more than that, it should be a fun day. Maren and Lillie will be left home for a fun evening doing whatever girls do.
See you tomorrow.

Yep, that was a real shock about Michael Jackson. We knew Farrah Fawcett had been sick, so that was sad but not a shock, but it really was about M.J. It will be interesting to see what the autopsy shows. Anyway, that's a very nice drawing Lillie did. Have a nice time at the track meet!
