01 | several months ago, the garage door started giving us problems. it was when we were pulling in. sometimes it would open up and sometimes we'd have to push the button several times, trying different methods to get it to work. we'd try holding the button down, roll up and down the driveway while pushing it, see if any of the kids had the magic touch. i started to believe that i was limited with how many times i could use it during the day, so i'd park in the driveway if i went anywhere. and then i thought it had to do with it being dark outside. i wanted to drive through the door on several occasions. and then one night, darric got out and moved the little antennae thing on it... and now it works just fine.
02 | max likes to sing in the shower. one night he gave a performance of bell biv devoe's poison. and it makes me happy to hear him singing songs from the crosby, stills, nash and young record that i've been playing.
03 | mackenzie had an open gym at green valley one night and only her and savannah showed up. they practiced hitting against the 15's team and one of the girls blocked one of kenzie's hits. kenzie came home and told us the story. she was so annoyed by the girl and how excited she was about it. at the scrimmage against lvva, savannah's mom came over to tell us the same story. she said you would have thought the girl was going to the olympics with how happy she was. she thought mackenzie thought it was funny because she had a smile on her face but savannah told her that kenzie is very competitive and that had probably made her mad. it did, even though she should really just be flattered.
04 | i found out that pee wee's playhouse was on netflix and it was some of the greatest news ever. i made max watch the first episode before bed one night and when it ended, he came in and told me how weird it was. the next day i made him watch the next episode and after that, he was hooked on it. i had to dig out my box of old toys in the garage and show him the figurines that i got many years ago (probably most of them from my aunt wendy).
