When Mr. Andi took the kids fishing last weekend, Nathan threw one of the rods overboard. I. KNOW. They were fishing in about twelve feet of water and he tossed it downstream off the back of the boat, so despite valiant efforts to retrieve it, it was lost.
But then! just before they were going to pull up anchor and go home, Sarah Kate prayed to St. Anthony to help find the rod. When Mr. Andi pulled up the anchor, the line of the rod was caught on it, and up came the rod.
Do non-twin siblings have a special communication bond? I’ve heard it’s true for twins, but my kids are seven years apart and it seems to be true for them, as well. Nathan’s speech, as I wrote on Tuesday, is often difficult to understand. Often, when I don’t know what he’s saying, I’ll ask Sarah Kate and she knows immediately.
I’m working on a redesign of my blog, including creation of a new logo. It’ll also be cleaner and mobile-responsive (WOOT!) The current version of the logo is final-ish, but I’ve got lots more work to do before I flip the switch. I briefly considered giving you guys a sneak peek of the logo, but I chickened out. So … stay tuned! 🙂
Sarah Kate went to see her neurologist for the first time in a year on Wednesday. Since she was last there, she became a Disney sensation, went to Minnesota for a gait study at Gillette, had bilateral femoral osteotomies and patellar tendon advancement, spent the summer in rehab, and completed a comeback race at Disney. So … a lot has happened.
In the spirit of encouraging her to be her own advocate and take charge of her care, I suggested she be the one to fill the doctor in on what’s been going on. She chose to lead with, “Well, I’ve got athlete’s foot because of my braces.”
The Iron Bowl is tomorrow, and while we’re loyal soldiers, we know that there are only a limited number of hours left to bask in the glory of last year’s triumph. After this weekend, the Kick Six will live on in history books as the winner of two ESPYs that registered on a seismograph, but it won’t be the most recent Iron Bowl anymore result. So without further ado, I present the Kick Six for (probably) the last time:
I know not all of my readers get how big of a rivalry it is, so I have one more video to share with you. When you watch, you’ll think “There’s no way stuff like this actually happens. Gotta be a joke.” I can assure you it isn’t. One rabid fan actually poisoned the iconic 80+ year old oak trees at the edge of campus because of his hatred for our team (but note that he was roundly condemned by both sides and served prison time).
But occasionally there’s a story like this one, about two opposing fans whose friendship rises above the rivalry. Grab a tissue.
Have a Great Weekend (and War Eagle)!
