What do you think – did Ed enjoy his first ice skating lesson?
Thanks mom for the lessons and for taking such a great picture!
Two years ago we were watching the Summer Olympics and Fencing came on. Henry and Ed (then about 5) were really excited until they learned that it wasn’t a fight to the death kind of competition. Oh, how we laughed.
So you’d think I wouldn’t have been surprised last night when Biathalon came on. You know Biathalon, the ski-SHOOT-ski-SHOOT sport?
I came into the room just as Craig was explaining to the boys that it wasn’t a shoot-out. You had to shoot at the targets, not the other competitors.
I laughed so hard I fell on the ground and could hardly breathe, but you know, NBC should consider it for next time. The ratings would be fantastic.
This morning just before 8 there was a tragic plane crash in the city next to ours. As it went down, the plane took out some power lines which fed a huge area and 28,000 of us were suddenly without electricity.
Palo Alto Utilities worked all day to get power restored and right before 6 tonight – as I was lighting candles and figuring out what I could cook in the dark and reassuring the kids that it wasn’t going to be scary – the lights came back on!
Thanks to everyone who worked hard in difficult circumstances to make this happen. Our family really appreciates it!
Erika, Craig, Henry, Ed and Charlie Jurney
I printed out some papers for Charlie (5) to color on and give out to his friends for Valentine’s Day. I left the room when he first got started, and when I returned I couldn’t stop laughing.
Not exactly in the spirit of Valentine’s Day, but at least they’re smiling.
