Reading books with Gram
And trying to eat it too, apparently.
Trip had a good time entertaining his grams while he took a bath.
Cuddling with Great Gram before bed time,
and making us all laugh!

After the game, we filled the church's warehouse with 75 students for 5th Quarter. They enjoyed nachos, games, music, and just a fun, safe place to hang out.
5th Quarter was something that the churches did when Kirk played football and thanks to Erik (our friend and housemate who has moved here to be our volunteer youth pastor), it lives on. In such a small town, there is nothing for the kids to do, so having an event to attend was a big deal to them. We're looking forward to the next home game in a week and hoping for another great turnout.

The two first-timers
Sunday, September 12, 2010
On Friday evening, Trip was standing next to the couch as he often does. All of a sudden, he turned, let go, and took two steps on his own. It was quite unexpected as he hasn't shown too much interest in walking so far and would rather crawl than try to walk around holding our hands. Kirk and I looked at each other in surprise and applauded his effort. I was glad Trip decided to keep this momentous occasion for a time when we were both in the living room and got to enjoy it together.
Each day since has brought a few more steps, one and two at a time. He still has a long way to go and we are really not in any hurry for him to walk, but it's still fun to see.
Before we took their pictures, the boys discovered a box of Cheese Nips in the living room. They quickly helped themselves to a snack.
Cooper was kind to share with Trip.
Tammi and Cooper, thank you for coming to visit us (and thanks to Gary for making it happen!). We had such a wonderful time and loved seeing the boys enjoy each other so much! We can't wait for the next time we get to be together.
