After 24 hours and TLC, her fever was gone and she went back to school today. I guess several kids have been sick already. They've been there a week; just enough time to spread germs around the classroom.

My first day of school happened today, too. Mine was uneventful except for several moments of anxiety when I thought of what Lillian was doing today. Now that the year is underway, posts to the blog will be sporadic at best. Once a week will be the goal; anything more will be a bonus.

@ 8 months: Lucas is making new sounds- like dadadada. Brent is thrilled!
He is trying a little bit of what we eat every night as he transitions to "real" food.
- Started daycare last week and has adjusted fine
- Gets in the crawling position from sitting but has yet to go anywhere
Family news update: My sister, Heather, is officially engaged to Jesse McKee. They plan to marry next summer. Now, my kids will have an Uncle Jesse. Am I the only one who thinks that's funny?!?!
Lillian and Lucas have a new cousin. Brady Evan Young was born this morning. He joins big brother, Jackson, who has been featured on this blog in the past.

Lucas misses Lillian. He keeps looking around like he expects her to pop out at any moment. Whenever we pass her room, he looks in like she might still be asleep. It is really sweet. I'm not sure she misses him but she did tell Grammy that it was awfully quiet without Lucas around.
As he approaches 8 months, Lucas has been trying more "people" food. He's had turkey, ham, pears, and grapes. In fact, I just spent the last 15 minutes peeling the skin off tiny pieces of grape so he could mash them easier between his gums. We'll try ravoli pasta tonight.
Lillian prefers to just stay home and play on Sat. mornings so we took advantage of her absence and ventured in to Guthrie's farmer's market. That has Brent brimming with ideas for next year's garden. We shopped in a thrift store I've always wanted to see and found some great deals. Ralph Lauren and Baby Gap shirts for 99 cents are too good to pass up!

She got one! Her first fish was caught in a record time of less than 2 minutes! Get a good look at her face...she was as surprised as we were.
Here was our solution: Nuts on one side of the glass, Lucas on the other. Perfect!
Nuts looks forlorn.
Posing for a pic. Yes, that's an old Theta shirt he's wearing. It has been demoted to changing oil, working in the yard, and building fence.
Stay tuned for the next installment of our weekend activities. Sunday was a full day!

Seriously, the big day is rapidly approaching. Lillian is excited; I'm anxious. I had to pause in the backpack aisle of Wal-Mart to take a deep breath when I saw her try on the one she wanted.

Playing in the sand
Grammy, Granddad, Lillian, and Lucas
