Christie has left for Ukraine, so I have been assigned the daunting task of taking over the blog for the week... Not sure that I will really bring any substance or awe inspiring insight to this blog, but there is one thing I can provide, and that is pictures... (I think this is actually why I was assigned this task).
The theme for this weeks blog posts is our daily adventures as I attempt to lead a somewhat normal life without the help of my wonderful wife for 8 full days...
Today was a pretty easy day, other than telling Christie bye and knowing that we will have minimal contact this week it was a good day. We hung out at the house this morning and went to watch Owen's Aunt Amanda play a double header in the afternoon.
After the popsicle Owen had a burst of energy and was obsessed with this old classic toy. This clip-clop horse has to be 25+ years old. That's the one I rode when I was little! It still makes the sounds! Owen has figured out how to make the thing rock and bounce, but you have to stay close because sometimes he forgets to hold on, and when he wants off there is no warning... he just "gets" off and you better be there to catch him!
Well that's it for today, Owen has hit the sack and I am about to do the same. Hopefully I can keep up with this thing while Christie is gone. I just checked their flight status and it looks like they are about an hour and a half out of Frankfurt (their next stop). Maybe they will have internet access at the airport and she will get a chance to see this post! If so, know that we love you and are proud of you and we'll be fine, I'm pretty sure I got this... Goodnight!
