Well, since it's been almost a year since I've posted to my LJ, thought I'd get you up to date on my life.
Where to start....
Josh has become an avid Star Wars fan which means he now knows the name of every starship, alien and planet in the Star Wars universe.
Our Christmas card. We all wore Blackhawks jerseys in commemoration of the Chicago Blackhawks FINALLY winning the Stanley Cup after 49 long years since the last championship.
Over the winter, Josh improved his skating skills and now zips around the ice like a little bullet.
Then there was February 1st. The third largest snow storm in Chicago's history. Missed the record by about 2 inches. Lots of snow!
Then Josh was invited to participate in being a part of the Adler Planetarium's new welcome center (opening in June). He was recorded with both audio and video and also had several pictures taken. Then he got to hang out with several astrophysicists which totally made his day!
Here he is, examining some meteorites found in South America and Africa.
Then on to the USA Hockey National Championships in Detroit, MI where our team placed 2nd in our division.
The following weekend I ran the Shamrock Shuffle in downtown Chicago. It's a 5 mile race through the city streets. 45,000 people participated! It was pretty cool.
And last weekend Robbie and I attended an airplane building seminar where we learned to cut, bend and rivet aluminum into something resembling airplane parts. Before leaving, we bought the plans and the tail kit to a Sonex aircraft. Let the fun begin!
Beware! Woman with power tools!
What the airplane looks like when finished. I'm very excited
And lastly, I think Josh is growing gills and turning into a fish.
How's everyone else doing out there?
