This station is now broadcasting in digital only. I am seeing that on NBC right now so thought I would write it also!

Onward and upward . . . we got to play outside today! Yaaaayy! Around the middle to end of January I always want winter to be over so we can play and go to parks etc, etc. Hopefully the rain will be spotty the next few days like the meteorologists are predicting. I may have convinced my dad that they really do need to get a shorter basketball hoop to hook onto the huge one for the little kids (we've been trying since Austin was 2!!).

I've started teaching Austin CURSIVE. How did he get so old? He has wanted to for awhile and finally I gave in. He really likes it and is pretty good (of course only loop letters so far).

Drew is starting to walk more like he wants to. Maybe me telling him he can play outside more if he walks has helped? Doubtful, but I am glad he is walking more no matter what the reason.

I have watched "Dan in Real Life" about 5 times in the past week. First of all, I really like Steve Carell and secondly, it is a definitely a good movie. Besides the fact that I wish I had told my dad he was a murderer of love (as the middle daughter does) when I was a teenager (it is definitely how I felt at times), I love the line at the end where his character says "Instead of telling our young people to plan ahead, we should tell them to plan to be surprised." I have needed that many times in my life so far and know I will probably need it again.

so turns out the "Dan in Real Life" quote isn't exact. That's what I get for looking it up online instead of copying it when I watch the movie again! I'll work on it.
