Stunt Man

Wow, it's been awhile since I've been here. I've been trying to get through this month. We are all burning with spring fever here and have had a few nice days to satisfy us. The kids rode scooters on one of those nice days recently. Josh doesn't get to ride in the street unless I'm out there with him, but this day I was out and he would ride his scooter in a big circle coming to the curb, jumping off, and rolling down the hill. He had a blast, asking me each time , "Did you see that?", or saying "that was awesome". He has no fear with some things, like jumping off the picnic table, but has great fear with other things. Yesterday at church he refused to walk up a flight of stairs, he crawled like a baby. He also begged me to carry him down the stairs, I refused initially, but he was in tears with just the thought of knowing we had to go back down the stairs. I don't know where this fear came from, but I guess I need to walk him up and down the stairs a few times.
On another note, today, Michael is auditioning for the Pied Piper. The Missoula children's theater comes once a year to do a show. Auditions are on Monday and the show is on Friday. His cousins will be auditioning as well, so cross your fingers they all get a part!

I was afraid the play would be this week, I'm on call starting Friday. If any or all of the kids get a part, I'll figure something out to be able to come down on Friday and come back on Saturday. Sounds like Josh had fun riding his scooter and rolling down the hill! Has he had the fear of the stairs long or was that the first big staircase he's really been on? Interesting. Let me know what happens with the Missoula tryouts. I'll keep my fingers crossed for all of them. :o)
