Hail to the Redskins!

Hail to the Redskins! Hail Victory! Braves on the Warpath! Fight for Victory!

Yes, the Redskins won today! I'm still not a Jason Campbell fan, but they won and that is what matters. We tried very hard to teach Aidan how to put his arms up in the air and say TOUCHDOWN!!! He just laughed at us! Really! And the kid has paws the size you cannot believe! He will likely be a football player when he grows up. Then I can say "I'm a Football Mom! " : )

Aidan had his first swimming lesson yesterday. He loved it for about 12 minutes. Then it was NO! NO! NO! the rest of the time until about the last 3 minutes. During the last 3 minutes, I had to put him on the edge of the pool standing and then have him jump in to me. He loved that! He didn't want to stop. . .suffice it to say, we had to make a dash for home. . .

Where our Social Worker, Kristin, awaited for our 6 month Post Placement visit. She was here for an hour an a half. Truthfully, it was a great visit and I really enjoyed seeing her and talking with her. I had missed that. But, also in truth, I couldn't help having that niggling thought in the back of my mind of "What if she takes Aidan away??" Of course I realize that is not a thought from God, but I just couldn't help it! All was well, though.

We had lunch and then put Aidan down for a nearly three hour nap. Afterward, we went and had dinner with Grandma and Grandpa at Olive Garden. The 3 of us have been suffering from colds for the past week, in fact bad enough that I have very little voice today, so we were all very tired last night after our long day. Today we stayed home and as quiet as we could. . .of course it was hard during the Redskins game! Pat got called into work so early dinner and early to bed for me and Aidan! Yes. . .

Hot again today. In truth, August was not bad. But, I hate it when it gets into the 90's! And today was in the mid-90's. But, it is probably (I pray) the last time, thanks be to God! I'm ready for Fall weather!

God's peace,

I glad that you are feeling better. Sore throats stink. I have to look into swimming lessons too. I think it is so important that children learn to swim early. I'm putting that on my to do list.

I want to thank you for being so kind to me. Your comments are really thoughtful and supportive.

Hi Stacy,
That is so great that Aidan is taking swimming lessons! I agree that it is so important to start them early. Hopefully he will like it more as time goes on - Sounds like he had fun jumping in at least!
Take care...Teresa
