Nick made the Varsity baseball team for his high school. They had their first scrimmage this weekend and each pitcher pitched a few innings. Nick did really well. He starts his regular season in a week. I hope the warmer weather comes to stay soon. Playing baseball in February and early March can still be cold here. March is suppose to be our turn toward warmer weather. I sure am looking forward to that and we are excited to watch Nick play baseball. He really has missed playing ball due to his limited season last year because of our move to North Carolina.
Well, we all know that toddlers fall often as they walk. Miss Tori took a spill yesterday and fell into the corner where two walls meet and split open her forehead. She had a good size gash and bump in the middle of her forehead that needed 7 stitches. Mike made a quick phone call and was able to get the plastic surgeon to meet us at his office on a Sunday. Tori was a trooper. She was unhappy we had to hold her down while he stitched her up, but she was very cooperative considering what had to be done. After, she acted like nothing happened to her. Fortunately they are the dissolving type so she won't need to revisit the doctor to get them out. Thank goodness kids are so resilient!
We decided that a family of 6...including Kailee our dog was not enough...Kailee needed company, so we got her a sister...her name is Sophie and she is a maltese puppy. She is very sweet and the two are getting along well. The kids are loving our new family member. Tori calls her "P", short for Sophie.
