This story about Washington Capitals’ Alex Ovechkin and his new friend Ann may be the cutest thing I have seen all year. It’s almost six minutes long, but worth every second.
The kids and I went to the county band jamboree on Tuesday night. Not being a former band member myself, I had never been to anything like it, but thought it might be fun for Sarah Kate. In the end, all three of us enjoyed it – even Nathan – and we determined that although our Mayberry high school band had some stiff competition, they’re the best in the county.
I have no idea why anyone would want to chase a search box around the screen whenever they want to Google something, but just in case this activity sounds like the epitome of fun to you, go check out anti-gravity Google.
Are you in the northeast metro Atlanta area? I recently met Melanie McGriff, the owner and clinical director of Kid’s Creek Therapy and I was so impressed with her and the things her clinic is doing. They use an integrated approach to therapy, covering speech, occupational, and physical therapy, and they also do monthly parent seminars and other special events. I’m hoping to stop by the next time I visit my sister in Atlanta. If you’re looking for a therapist and are in the John’s Creek/Suwanee/Duluth/Alpharetta area, I encourage you to check out Kid’s Creek.
The fire truck loft bed is almost finished! Mr. Andi got the “grill” and “headlights” on last night. All that is left now is to finish up the steps and add a few decorative touches. Coincidentally, the fire department brought a truck to Nathan’s school on Thursday, so he’s really, REALLY fired up now.
Mr. Andi and I turned down tickets IN THE SUITE for the Auburn vs. Mississippi State game tomorrow. I KNOW. Our excuses were: (a) no one to keep the kids, and (b) no one to keep the dogs, but the main reason is that we will be rooting for the visiting team, and I didn’t want to be the SEC football version of Elaine Benes.
And now, a message from Sarah Kate: To those of you out there you have heard of Miracle Marathon but don’t know much about it, Miracle Marathon is to help support Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals like Children’s in Birmingham and Gillette in Minnesota. Only three days left but you can still donate and still sign up. What you do is run, walk, swim, bike, or any other physical movement for one mile then on Sunday you do 1.2 mile instead of just one. Start your 1.2 miles at 2:27pm Eastern time, take a selfie and post it to social media using #MiracleMarathon.
Have a great weekend!
