Noah's Ark at the Skirball Center

We went to see Noah's Ark at the Skirball Center with the Goodman's. What a great exhibit it is and what a nice time to be had by all!

Even the big kids enjoyed it too!

Swim Team

We put the boys on swim team. They are *loving it*. They swim three times a week and just in the last two weeks have improved dramatically. They are so proud of themselves!

Ben's Headaches and his appendix

Ben's headaches continued thru the weekend until it reached an all time high on Sunday.
I took him to urgent care where they transferred us to the hospital to rule out appendicitis.

Sure enough, after a nasty CT Scan of his gut and one of his brain he was scheduled to have his appendix out!
Mom's intuition is always right. I knew something was wrong with him.
Poor guy.
He is recouperating nicely and was very, very brave.
I hope he feels better soon.

And, his headaches are gone!
Maybe it was all related?
I suppose we will never know!

Update on Ben

Took him to the eye doctor.
All is 'normal'. She suggested a trip to a neurologist.
That makes me very nervous.
The headaches continue.
I will call the pediatrician on Monday.

Ben ... what is wrong?

Ben has had a headache every day since school started.
Maybe it's his eyes?
We will take him for an eye exam to find out.
Poor soul.
He comes home from school and goes straight to bed.
So uncharacteristic of him...

Papa Frank

It's been two years since Dad died.

I can't believe it's been that long or that short...

We miss him every day.
