Good evening, it is Thursday.
Happy Birthday to my cousin Emily! And Happy Anniversaries to both My parents and Maren's parents! Both sets of our folks celebrate 48 years this month.
This President's week vacation is almost over! And what a strange vacation it's been. Only Lillie and I are on vacation as Hansen and Preston have school, and Maren has work. So it's kind of been dad/daughter stay-cation. We've gone to malls and restaurants. We've gone on walks. But what nearly 14 year old hipster wants to hang out with her dad the whole time? So Lillie decided to venture out on her own and walk to the stores to get some ice-cream and do some shopping. On her walk home, Lillie gets hit by a car! Yeah, no joke! In a crosswalk even! Lillie will be just fine. She has bumps, bruises, and a very sore knee. 911 was dialed. Lillie got to visit with police and firefighters. Once home, she and Maren took a trip to urgent care to make sure her knee was OK. Which it will be. But for now she is limping around and admiring some cool swelling.
Enjoy the rest of your President Week! This narrative of Lillie and I vacationing while the boys have school for four days will take a sad twist come June. The boys will get out of school toward the beginning of June, but due to snow days, Lillie and I will be in school till the bitter end of June...
See you tomorrow.
