Connor's Weekend

I did a poor job of recapping our weekend in a timely manner. I'm sure you've all been sitting on the edge of your seat, waiting to hear if Connor pulled it together or not.

Friday night he spent the night at a friend's house for the first time ever, and had a great time. I went to the Grizzlies game with Cullen (another last-minute win - so fun!) and Chip and Chloe went to Sakura. We all had a fun night, mainly because we were on each other's nerves and needed a night (mostly) apart.

Then we picked Connor up the next morning and within ten minutes he had yelled at me and cried.

But we recovered quickly! We went right from his friend's house to his basketball game, and it was awesome. The two Idlewild teams played each other (at Idlewild, natch) and there were even cute little Idlewild cheerleaders who performed for us several times during time-outs and between quarters. We chose to ignore that they appeared to be cheering for the other Idlewild team- I certainly doubt any of the boys even noticed.

For our family the real excitement came during the fourth quarter, when Connor made a free throw (pictured). His first point! Not long after that, he scored a real basket to bring his point total for the game (and the season!) to three. He glowed for hours afterward.

Saturday night he stayed at Grammy's, and once again we all enjoyed being away from each other. In fact, by Sunday we almost liked each other again! Also on Sunday- Connor was too exhausted that evening to go to his first-ever book club meeting, which made me a little sad. I had gotten him involved with this group because he doesn't exactly love to read and I was hoping some peer pressure in that area might make him view the whole thing in a more positive light. And it did! For despite the fact that he didn't actually attend the meeting, he did find that they had picked out a great book. By Tuesday he was reading the book over breakfast and in the car. Yay!

And as for the bone color count since our last update?
Fri- Green!
Mon- Blue :(
Tues- Green!
Keep your fingers crossed. . .
