"Bowden, go get a shirt on."
Yeah, any shirt you want. Just hurry. We're going to be late for dinner, and I have to welcome the guest group."
"Bowden, what happened to your shoes? Go get your shoes on!"
The kids are getting all jazzed up for the big game tomorrow. Redskins vs Cowboys is one of the most storied rivalries in all of football, and I couldn't bring myself to play any of the Cowboys on my fantasy team. Romo, Felix Jones and Dallas' defense are getting benched in favor of Jason Campbell, Chris Cooley, Santana Moss and the Skins defense.

I took this picture right after Bowden made a save during his stint as goalie. He was very proud of himself. Later in the game when the Jaguars scored on him he looked sad for a second and then he shurgged it off and seemed just as jolly as before. It was almost like he was happy for the Jaguars.
Lucy and Jack kept up their energy by sucking on orange wedges. Cheering on the Bobcats can be very taxing.
Josh Leih, who is in our junior high small group, was reffing the game next to ours between the Fighting Irish and the Killer Bees. Josh is a cool dude. Super chill!
Here is Bowden's buddy, Joel White. He plays for the Fighting Irish, and they were playing on the next field at the same time. This picture was taken right after Joel took a corner kick. I wish I had gotten the ball in the frame. I think the Bobcats play the fighting Irish next. That should be a good game!
The kids love the victory tunnel at the end of the game. I think it's Bowden's favorite part.
The company that we bought the mailing list from sends me promotional material from time to time, and in their most recent mailing they broke down the number of churches in their database by state. I will send a dollar to the first person who can guess the top three states with the most churches, and another dollar to anyone who can guess the bottom three.

As I type, Lucy and Bowden are sound asleep, and here are the pictures to prove it. I love my kids soooooo much- it hurts me sometimes.
Sarah and I have started sticking little notes into their lunch boxes when they head out the door for preschool and kindergarten. They love them at least as much as a peanut butter and jelly sandwich, but probably not as much as a juice box. Sarah and I enjoy it too. I like the challenge of coming up with a different theme for each note.
Here are some of my favorites. (Most of them are for Lucy because Bowden gets hot lunch at Kindergarten.)
