First Day of Preschool

Today is the first day of preschool for Seth. He will be going three days a week from now until the end of May. He is really excited about it.

Debbie met with the director of the school a couple of weeks ago to talk about registering Seth for the fall session. Then, on Monday of this week (yes two days ago), the director called to let us know that one of the kids in the 4 year old class was not going to be returning and that Seth could have that space if we wanted it. We had already decided that he was ready so we said "Why not?" An now he is in school. Just like that.

Happy Groundhog Day!

Well, Phil saw his shadow, so it looks like six more weeks of winter. Let's see, Feb 2 to March 21 (vernal equinox) is about six weeks, more or less. Hmm, think that's a coincidence?

Ice and Snow

We have finally had some respectable winter weather. About 2 inches of snow yesterday and a quarter inch of ice on top of that last night. Needless to say it was tricky out there this morning.

It's really easy for me to work at home, so I did that today. Working here is interesting because I can get a lot done. There aren't so many interruptions. I wouldn't want to do it for along time though because I feel like I would get out of touch with the people that I work with very quickly.

The other thing about working here is that the kids stop by every now and then to say hi and that's kind of nice. Hard to stay focused on work sometimes, but still nice.

Seth Seems to be a little better

Seth's ear infection appears to be a little better. He is more energetic than he has been. I think the antibiotic is working.

Ear Infection

Debbie just called and it seems that Seth has what looks like an ear infection in both ears. He's been moving kind of slowly for about a week so she took him to his doctor today. The doctor prescribed amoxicillin for 10 days.

He hasn't complained about sore ears or a sore throat. According to Debbie the doctor said he's a pretty tough cookie because both of his eardrums are red and appear to have fluid behind them. I hate to have him feel bad.

End of the First Week Back

It's the end of the first week back to work and I am glad. For some reason this week has seemed busy.

Lego Truck

Here is the final of the three Lego models from the kit. This one took about 2.5 hours to build.

Lego Loader

A few nights ago I built the loader from the Lego kit I got for Christmas. Here are some photos. It has already been taken apart and Seth is asking about the truck cab which is the next project. This took about two and a half hours to build.

New Lamps

After thirteen years of wedded bliss Debbie and I have finally found some living room lamps that we both like. At the right price. The JCPenney Clearance + Extra off + extra off price.

Whoo Hoo!

Week 2 of the Christmas Break

Today was the first day of my second week off. I don't usually get this much of a holiday, but this year the calendar helped out and stretched this break out by adding an extra weekend. I will not go back to work until Monday the 5th.

It has been good to spend a significant amount of time with Debbie and the kids. I think we are all enjoying it.
