Mom never actually said that, but It'd be pretty smart of her if she did.
and if you look here Seth Wickersham an actual paid-professional ESPN expert says the Rams will make the playoffs. (scroll down to the last set of predictions and look in the "NFC wild cards" row and it'll say "St.Louis")
And you may notice not a single one of the experts predict the Bears to make the playoffs.

Quinn asked me a few times to put some music on the blog. So, I figured it out and put on the song that Zak and Quinn both thought would bring the most enjoyment. Do you remember, Steven, when Christopher played this song repeatedly when we did not use headphones?
No one has commented, so we left it be. I enjoyed it.
I got a call from Christopher this morning with tales of his annoyance with being accosted with music when he wanted to only LOOK at the blog.
ok, ok, I give.
I have now put the music on "push the play button IF you want to hear the music". It will not automatically start playing for you.
Christopher did say that if he checks the blog at 2:00am and Steven is already asleep, no one will want to hear the beginnings of "Breakfast at Tiffany's". So to keep the peace, you must click the button yourself.
You may also take note that there is music on Chase's blog! It is great missionary music.
I will happily put whatever song you want on the playlist. Let me know!

With our car situation, and my leg/crutches situation, I could not get into my Yukon. I have discovered that driving the Yukon is more comfortable than the Corolla.
So, I needed Zak to drive the Yukon out of it's parking place. I sat in the passenger's seat, Zak took the driver's seat. It was nerve wracking and sweaty, but Zak did a great job, no scratches or bang ups. Apparently, Zak has never driven a car before, He did not know anything! Thank goodness I am such a good teacher.
At one point we were blocking the street of Doshier. A car honked. I opened my window and expressed that they just needed to wait for a moment!
We did get to walmart. Hopefully, everyone has what they will need for school.
One thing on top of my todo list was to buy a motorcycle. I got one, and I am very happy with my purchase:

I also feel like my tender, sore ankles could be supported by these rocks.

Now it's in the kitchen
Checking his computer one last time, then he told us more things to know about computers, always the teacher.
You read the emotion on his face as he is about to leaving the loving arms of his family.
Oh, I crack myself up.

Mario Kart - with a steering wheel!
Cake time, Dad tries to light the candles
Zak tries to light the candles
Quinn blew out the candles at the first note of our singing, I was NOT ready for the picture!
Now, I've got the picture
I took this picture of Griffin while I was turning the camera around, complete accident, it turned out GREAT! I love his smile.

Zak has started up with Football again! Twice a day. He is sweaty and achy.
Griffin and Kylie are back at swimming lessons, although Kylie is doing diving lessons, which she really enjoys.
Quinn has his books ready for school. He had to register today. His choice of shirt for his school pictures is very questionable! Yes, this is the shirt he wore!
Christopher is studying A LOT for his GMAT...which he is taking tomorrow.
Steven is enjoying the picking up and dropping off. Not really.
Chase is doing great! He would love to get a letter from all of you who read this blog. His site is: chasemission.blogspot.com
I, hopefully, am knitting.....(think about it!)
This is the bottom of my foot. Zak, Quinn and Kylie have
