My Boy

Ethan has an expression that just tugs at my heartstrings, every time... it's sort of a sideways shrug, a bit bashful and a bit playful, and lately he's been doing it when he wants be sure that we are following behind him. I love it.

The other day we actually had a bout of warm-ish weather, so Ethan wanted to be outside with his soccer ball. Maybe one of these days we'll be able to enroll him in soccer classes like his big cousin Preston!

In the meantime, we'll have to content ourselves with play-dates, visiting family, and fun time at home with mom and dad. That sounds perfect, right, Ethan? Uh, right?

Uh-oh. Looks like it's time to kick the job hunt into high gear and get this kid into daycare!


  1. Awe.....what an adorable little pose. He is just so sweet! Like the comment about being like his cousin Preston....that was sweet too. Hey on another note....not sure if you are following what's going on in politics...have you been on unemployment for the full 99 weeks yet? This new plan to extend the unemployment benefits does not lengthen the time past the 99 weeks....but looks like it may pass soon. But if you've been on it 99 weeks...it won't help. Any news with the job placement agencies? Did you see my post about substitute teaching?

  2. Haven't been on 99 weeks yet, so we're hoping that this means we'll see continued benefits for a little while longer... It hasn't stopped my usual job hunt-- the one I've been on for the past 2 years-- but it sure has kicked it into high gear. Even if they do pass the extension, I just need and want a job so badly that I'm keeping up the momentum. ONE of these options just has to pan out, right?

  3. That's the spirit. Great attitude to have. It does feel better to make your own money. I'm sure you'll find something...you have a wonderful work experience and education!
