Catching up

A few highlights from the last week:
  • Jack and I are both sick . . . again. Actually, we're both finally starting to get over the cold that we've had for the last few days, but it was miserable while it lasted. Being sick during Lukeapalooza is never fun.

  • Lukeapalooza was entertaining. It included a visit from the paramedics . . . I'll write more about this when I get the picture that goes along with the story.

  • Jack is crawling on his hands and knees now. He's still a little shaky, but at least there's no more army crawl. The army crawl wasn't bad, but he ended up with a shirt full of dog hair when he was done.

    He also pulls himself up on whatever he can get a hold of . . . whether it's sturdy enough or not. Needless to say, there have been a lot of tumbles. Kyle went in after his nap yesterday and he was standing in his crib smiling at him.

  • Jack slept for FIVE! HOURS! yesterday. Not all at once, but all of his naps combined equaled five hours. This might be the third or fourth time this has ever happened. Though, he's been sleeping almost an hour right now.
  • I'm ready for Christmas break to be over. It used to be that the craziness at camp started in mid-April as the summer approached. But now, it starts immediately following Christmas break. Family camp info has to be out by February 1. Our first winter retreat is January 28 (or is it the 27th?). The summer youth camp brochure needs to be out in the next few weeks. The web site and other brochures all need to be updated. Our summer curriculum and schedules need to be finalized.

    There's a lot to be done and a lot less time than there was before Jack was here. Grandma Luke always says, "Don't you wonder what you did with all of your time before Jack was born?" No, I don't wonder that. I did all of the stuff that doesn't get done now.

I'm gonna go take down all of the Christmas decorations! Happy New Year!
