We are getting ready for the BIG MN trip. The biggest purchase so far is a DVD player with two monitors for the kids. It seems like so much. I never got to watch TV in the car when I was little! And really not now either as I think about it. But I give a big thanks to the in-laws for doing their best to save my sanity during a 24 hour car trip with a 4 year-old and a two year old. Possibly I should still be looking at plane tickets!?
Monday we started swim lessons. We were there early. Waited. Got Isaac off to his lesson. Then the girl in charge reminded me that Zoey's lessons are only Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday. Zoey was not a happy camper and if you have ever seen her you know what a pleasure it can be to have her in public. Me--I was just glad I remembered to show up (at least for Isaac's lesson). Zoey did well yesterday and Isaac was proud to go under to his lips. He has a fear of the water or drowning. Not sure what caused that, but he really worries about it. Chris gets to take them tonight. It will be fun to see how that goes.
I worked out today in the new strength and conditioning room at the new high school. I met with the AD and stuff has started to come in for the training room. It really got me excited for next season. I have a desk, with keys to lock up the paperwork ( no longer a HIPPA violation). A filing cabinet also with keys and dent free. A beautiful treatment table. Everything is new, even my chair! I am not as excited about the stuff as the fact that this square of a room is turning into something functional that I can see myself working in efficiently. My job is still good. I don't know if I will be working more hours yet, but I am not too worried about that right now.

Here is a picture of the fish Chris caught the other night.
Dad--What day are you going to MN? How long will you be there?
Dixie--I think we will be driving back down Saturday July 7 after a week of fishing. I will be around for about two weeks after that and have specific plans on the 14th.
City Gals--I may be driving through on the 7th of July. Should I stop and say hi?

Friday afternoon I went to the new high school for the first time to take a quick peek at things. Everything looks very nice. They were setting up weight equipment when we (the kids and I )got there. The weight room is huge! The training room looks nice, but very empty. There was a refridgerator, but no ice machine, whirl pool, taping tables, exam tables, heat packs. I think whoever does end up at Glacier next year is going to have a tight year with budget and just getting starter items. Of course nothing is set in stone yet, but I know ORI gets first pick at which school they want--probably the new Glacier school. So that is where I will more than likely be. This next year is going to be interesting. Next year Glacier won't have any seniors and many of the docs I work for have kids going to Flathead.
We had stayed in town because daycare was having a face painting day and I had already told Isaac he could have his face painted. I didn't know then that they didn't start until 3pm. But it was a dollar for a sixth grade girl to paint them and the money was going to cancer research. Isaac had a red dinosore with red spots painted on his arm and Zoey got a ladybug on her cheek. They enjoyed it.

Isaac has decided that he can dress himself, with a camo shirt, red shorts and spiderman snow boots he is set for the day(that happens to be about 90degrees). In his defense, he is wearing motorcycle boots and I am sure that is the safest footwear to have when riding motorcycle.
