the rundown

It's been a wild week (hence the lack of posts).

Monday we said good-bye to Mimi & Grandpa. What a great week we had with them. Here are a few more pictures...

Nate got his birthday present from Mimi & Grandpa a few weeks early -- a big boy bike!

Hot tub with Mimi -- look how pink Nate is!

Tuesday Jon and I went with a couple of friends to see Flight of the Conchords at the Paramount. We sat in the last four seats of the last row of the theater, but still had a great time. Business Time, Hip-hop-opotomus, and Sugar Lumps were highlights, but the funniest part was all the banter between songs.

Wednesday I took the Victoria Clipper to see my sister, brother-in-law, and nephew in Victoria, BC. My nephew Asher was at BC Children's Hospital in Vancouver for his first 14 months of life and finally went home about 2 months ago. This was the first time I had been up to visit since he'd been home, and my first ever trip to Victoria. Unfortunately, Asher got very sick while I was there and had to be hospitalized (though just at the local hospital, not back to Vancouver). He is doing OK right now, but will probably stay in the hospital for the next week or so. Asher is such a tough little cookie and has the sweetest disposition despite all he has been through. Even though he was sick I still got some good auntie-nephew snuggle time and loved being there with him.

Courtney & Asher

I got back from Victoria late last night and am now trying to catch up on laundry, email, gardening, and kissing my kids. Four of my favorite things, as it turns out, so not at all a bad place to be. Peace.

Our front yard in bloom.

Sometimes when I freestyle, I... lose... confidence.

Glad to hear the show was great! I want to see them live someday.

Praying for Asher and everyone he touches!
