Yee-Haw Jesters Dead!

Not long after James and I were married and he was getting ready to graduate I asked him if he had always wanted to be a dentist to which he fervently replied "NO! I wanted to be a fighter pilot!" Well, a couple months ago we met Josh and Emily. After inviting them to a murder mystery party we found that Josh was a pilot for the US Air Force flying F-16's, I believe (sorry if I got that wrong Josh). So, naturally, Josh and James became instant friends. Although I'm not sure Josh had a choice in the matter. ;-) Luke Air Force base has a simulator that Josh invited James to try. You sit in a cockpit and there are screens surrounding you, "simulating" flight. The inside is just like a fighter jet and there are 2 so you can "dog fight". James went once before and then Josh invited both of us to come with him and his wife, whom I love to pieces. I managed to crash only a couple times before learning how to stay in the air. I got a little motion sick but James of course had the time of his life, and was pretty good. So thank you Josh for helping James fulfill a childhood dream....for the most part. ;-)

Jackets?...We Don't Need No Stinking Jackets!

Walker and Levi have (finally) learned to swim without their life jackets. It has been a huge relief for us. And of course they learned a couple days after James finished putting up the fence.

Well my "baby" has lost not one but TWO baby teeth. The little buggers have been loose for some time now. Walker didn't want me to pull them out, he wanted to wait till he got to his dad's and have him pull them out. But alas, the day before he was to fly to Utah he came running downstairs to inform me that one of his teeth was missing. We're still not sure where this slippery little guy went, although I have a pretty good idea. So I convinced him to let me pull the other one so he would have at least one to put under the pillow for our dear "Tooth Fairy". And lucky for him he was visited by not one, but yes that's right, 2 little fairies. What a lucky boy you are Walker!!!

You Are Esmerelda!

Mysterious and passionate. You are a survivor. Even though life has swung you some difficult situations you have a strong intuition that gets you through. Also, you have the capacity to sympathize and relate to a variety of different people.

Which Disney Princess Are You?
