Missile rode to school this morning by himself! I snuck out behind him and followed, but stayed far back. I can't believe how mature and responsible he is most times.

I can't believe it. Maximus is in third grade. All the years prior to this he hugged and kissed me before walking into school...now? He didn't even look back. I cried. My baby with long curly red hair, a late kid to potty training and a wild child with a significant speech delay walked boldly into Mountainview Elementary with his buddies and never looked back at his parents, who stood on the playground hoping he would. He got the backpack he wanted, some new Penguin high tops, the right shorts and socks. You're a stud, our son. We couldn't be more proud of you.

We've been sick to our stomachs with worry over this girl. Her blood work has been all over the place and finally, she's okay. Yesterday she went to The Childrens Hospital and she's fine from a hematology/oncology perspective. She was scared but she was very brave!

So Maximus broke his wrist at school yesterday in two places. And we got a little snow this morning. Enough to shut down all schools in Denver, the mail, most businesses, I-25 and many, many roads. Of course we bundled up and went to the gym.
But hey! No one was at the gym this morning so I had the whole place to myself!

Say what? Four! Biggie is the size of a two year old and acts like she's 14. Happy birthday, Ingrid Gladys!

With the Super Bowl coming up, the people of Colorado are going nuts. Each Friday, the first couple hundred people at King Soopers (grocery store) get a limited edition magnet. Yes, Jesse went to one location at 6am while Ingrid and I went to another one at 7am. We got our magnets though!

This kid is the big 8 today! With all the ups and downs, I'm so grateful to be the mother to a very passionate, insightful, kind, intelligent, strong willed and loving son. He had his birthday party with 15 buddies on Saturday. Today he got a new skateboard and gets to go out to his favorite Mongolian restaurant for dinner. Go Maximissile! Let's make 8 great!
