Caleb is sick...who wouldn't be after licking bowling alley chairs!! Actually, we're all sick. I came down with the raging fever and body aches last Wednesday and I'm finally able to get around again. Just in time to care for everyone else...what d'ya know?!? Even Ben was in bed with his parka on just trying to get warm. The only decent part about all of it is having lethargic boys instead of hyper, making continual messes boys. Caleb who has never watched more than 10 minutes of TV at a time actually watched the entire Dumbo movie while just cuddling "mommy." It was great!

Anna McFadden does a great job at planning weekly, yes weekly, playgroup activities for our ward. Unfortunatly Luke's gymnastics class usually falls right during the playing so we end up missing most of them. However, a few weeks ago the planned playgroup met in the afternoon at Cornell's Bell Tower to listen to the Chime Master play a mini-concert. This happens 3 or 4 times a day, 7 days a week.
This picture is pretty blurry, but I thought you might enjoy seeing the Chime Master in all his Ithacan glory! Notice the facial hair, knitted beanie, playing giant bells bare-footed at Cornell...I don't know, I'm thinking he might enjoy smoking a little sompen, sompen and discussing philosophy on his off days! I'm terrible, I know!!!

A mom who was in Primary with Luke yesterday told me that Luke had been picked to come up and help with the Sharing Time lesson. The teacher asked, "Luke, can you tell us what's happening in this picture?" The picture was one of Nehpi building his ship. Luke says, "That's Jesus with a bunch of pirates." My friend says all the boys in the room perked up and then wanted to hold the "pirate" picture. I laugh as I write this and wish I could have been there!
