Volleyball Camp

Here are a some pics from AJ's volleyball camp. We are exploring a few new sports to see which she might be interested in. She hates being hot (indoor and water sports are looking good) and she is going to be about a million feet tall, so I think volleyball is a definite possibility. I think this was a good intro, and only a one week commitment, which worked out well.

Heat Wins

AJ has discovered that she is very good
at breast stroke. She has such a natural
innate stroke. She doesn't always win,
but she ALWAYS looks fabulous. The
speed will come, but the skill is already

Iron (wo)Man


So some of you have heard that I went in for some skeletal improvements on the 11th. I am now officially a robot-human hybrid. Look out–we super humans will outlive all of you mere mortals.

Technically I had some vertebra fused, and it was a bear of a surgery. I laid in semi-consciousness for 5 days in the hospital...I have almost no memory of this photo. But I did get a nice 120 hour nap. So now I am feeling very rested. I should be able to skip several nights of sleep if needed.

Thank you everyone for you support, thoughts, calls, meals, and visits (sorry if I said anything that left you scratching your head...morphine tends to make me wax crazy.)
