Things tend to change when you least expect them to ... it is God's way of putting things into perspective.

We are going to be staying in Kansas for Thanksgiving this year. We have practice each day this week so we are going to plan on celebrating the holiday at our head coaches house after practice on Thursday. We play this weekend at home so we are not traveling, but we still have to be in town for practice.
Some Charlie news ... it looks like he is getting his first tooth. It has just cut through on the bottom gum and it is SHARP!! He keeps rubbing his tongue over it and I think he is trying to figure out what it is, but I think we finally have one. I expected it to come in much earlier, but guess we had to wait 7.5 months, which is fine as he is growing much too fast for me as it is!

Second, our team played on ESPN today at 11 am against Iowa. We got the win and we looked great! We have made some great progress already this year so let's keep the ball rolling. Next game is Sunday at St. Louis.
Back to dad -- Charlie and I spent the weekend in IL with my family. Saturday morning we flew back to Chicago and met up with my sister-in-law, Lindsay, to head down to Bloomington. Once we got into town, we surprised my dad at lunch. He had no idea we were coming! That evening we had a small family celebration for my dad's 60th birthday (which is actually today). Then on Sunday, following breakfast, Charlie and I said "good-bye" and my dad thought that was it. He went on about his day working with the other boys (my brothers). Little did he know that my sister, mom and sister-in-laws were preparing for a surprise party! Over 60 of dad's family and friends joined in the celebration and I can honestly say that we did it ... he had no idea! It was a great afternoon and I am glad that we were able to pull off the secret!
Later that night, Charlie and I did head back to Chicago with Teddy and Lindsay in anticipation of our early morning flight Monday. It was a quick weekend, but well worth the trip!

Happy Birthday to David ... my younger brother! He and his wife, Angie, just moved into their new home this past weekend. They have moved from city-life to country-life. They will love it, I am sure! Looking forward to seeing the new home :)
