this weekend we hit the road for pella, iowa. home to the tulip capitol of the universe and to great grandpa and grandma. tessa's dad was in town also. they bought a fixer upper and are flipping it. we helped out with some tile and tessa sanded the cupboards. it was a fun weekend to spend with family. we went out to eat on saturday night to the pizza ranch (three stars) and started in on a puzzle this afternoon before heading back home to omaha.
this has also capped off ellen's 13th week of existence. just this weekend she rolled onto her side for the first time. she has been perfecting the art ever since. she has even rolled from her back, to her side, and then onto her stomach and is rewarded with a treat. we haven't gotten her to roll back to her side from her stomach though. she seems to end up a beached whale on her stomach. we'll work on that for week 14.
this week tessa works a half day on monday and saturday and a full day on sunday. this weekend we also have a wedding to attend. one of my college buddies is getting married. this wedding is friday night and i will miss our first basketball game because of it. i'll be back in action on saturday morning though against william penn. we'll let you know how those games go.
a thank you to those of you who prayed for ellen. she has been breathing normally and there doesn't seem to be any problems.
it's 62 and mostly clear
