We have enjoyed the outdoors already a lot and even if it's a bit cooler, it's all good! So far, we have been spared the snowy mornings my sister further West has been treated to, including this morning! I don't want any snow, I am happy with the soothing drip of rain.
We attended Klint's graduation in Anchorage at the Sullivan Arena. Lots of graduates (over 2400!) and lots of people there who loved them ---so the crowds were there. Only one person we were interested in seeing march down that aisle though! We are very proud of our son Klinton. He has earned a Bachelor Degree in Electrical Engineering with a Minor in Mathematics and a Minor in Physic's. He is much smarter than I can ever be! Good job Klinton.
The "Sons of Thunder" is a title my son Kris decided was going to be the name they will use at the MX Races. I thought that was pretty cool to name themselves after the sons of Zebedee and Salome of the Bible.
James and John, by their name (which Jesus gave to them), were a couple of guys that were "fervid," "impetuous," "passionate," or even "declamatory" and "vociferous." "Boanerges;" Sons of Thunder. A surname given by our LORD to James and John (Mark 3:17) on account of their fervid and impetuous temper. (Quoted from www.christiananswers.net.) "And when his disciples James and John saw this, they said, Lord, wilt thou that we command fire to come down from heaven and consume them, even as Elias did?" (Luke 9: 54) That Gospel story makes me chuckle in light of the meaning of their name.
Raegan Mae came to visit today and she was wearing jeans, a summery top and sandals. I was trying to push her little toes up so she could see her sandals and she grunted and I saw the jeans were tight on that tummy. I said to her Mom, "Aw she already knows the pinch of her jeans!" Baby girls are so fashionable today!
Day 134. Actually, Millie opens her eyes when we move her arms around. Does that mean she is awake? I think I mean awake when she sleeps at night and wakes up during the day. My sister Kotya says, but she was a night owl, maybe she would be awake at night... ?
I heard that she spoke. I have not heard her say anything yet. I have heard her moan after she coughs.
Millie is taking her good ol' time 'emerging'.
