Brittany spent most of last week in Boise for the State Track Meet. She injured her ankle in the meet before Districts and wasn’t sure she would make it to State. But she suffered and endured and was so excited to go. She tied for 4th place, which is the same place she had last year. She was a little disappointed but this has been such a crazy season. Before her injury she was jumping 5’2” so she was bummed to get out at 5’.

On hands and knees, I wipe the floor clean and notice there are only a few big footprints. I know that someday all the little footprints will be a faded memory. For now, I cherish the quiet at the end of the day and the ritual of wiping the floor clean in preparation for another day of little footprints.

I must say they actually turned out really cute. Kyndra said it was almost disgusting because it looked like a real meatball on top of the cupcake but boy are they yummy. Brittany re-wrote the words to “On Top of Spaghetti” for her birthday card and it all turned out so cute. Morgan wasn’t too sure about the “meatball” either so Brittany made the sacrifice and ate 2 chocolate truffle meatballs.

Monday afternoon we were able to see the doctor and she confirmed our diagnosis. He is on antibiotics to clear up the infection and then we will see what needs to be done with the toenail. He played it up real good and cried the entire time I was talking to the doctor. She also gave me a prescription for Tylenol with Codeine. She told me I could give it to him or take it myself so one of us would feel better.

Morgan is thrilled that Zane is old enough to ride bikes with her. He hasn’t figured out how to make the peddles work but he has fun. And Morgan insists that she needs her training wheels off. Maybe we will try it this weekend. They grow up too fast!

One of the other moms planned a scavenger hunt for them in Pocatello that afternoon. Then they drove to Idaho Falls to eat at Olive Garden before returning to Pocatello for the dance. I told her to be home before midnight so they had to leave the dance a little early to get all the way back to our house and she made it right on time.
It was a long day but she had so much fun and was glad that she went.

Once we finished our towers Morgan wanted to run them over or stomp on them and build a new castle. She has visions of bigger and better castles with taller towers for all of the lady bugs to live in. I am not sure where she got the lady bug idea.

Thank you to all of you who sent cards or called. It’s nice to be remembered.
Scott just re-seeded one end of the lawn. It's a law of nature - if you plant before Mother's Day there will be more snow or a freeze. Will we ever have flowers and green grass? Tomorrow will probably be summer with scorching heat so, I guess, we will enjoy today.
