Lewis Family Update



Casey: Still working with Farmer's Insurance and loving every second of selling policies and dealing with his always polite customers. We've decided that his 95 Honda Civic is coming to a slow and painful death. I almost lost my life (not really) when the brakes went out as I was cruising down Alma School. I had to swerve into the Mcdonald's parking lot going about 30 to avoid the cars coming to a stop at the light. The cost was about $850 for the brakes, which we decided against. It also makes pleasant noises. So we're going to sell the car and Casey is getting a nice little scooter, most likely tomorrow.

Jessie: Still doing the babysitting. Mondays is baby Eva and the rest of the week is baby Chase, oh and of course Maddie insists on coming along each day. She has gotten loads better about accepting the fact that I do have to hold and feed these babies. It's far less stressful not having a screaming child at my feet. I've also started boot camp with some friends. It's been on a week, then I was gone a week, then on a week, then the instructor took off a week, so I'm excited to have consecutive weeks of me getting worked to complete soreness.


Maddie: Is such a goober, as we always say to her. She is constantly on the move, she hates eating healthy food and any food in her highchair, she dances almost always when music comes on (even to my harmonica playing), she's fully enjoying having a dog to chase around, I found my first object in the toilet and several in the trash can, she loves Nemo but our disk is scratched so she will never know the ending, she does so well at knowing her animals and what they say, she's fascinated by letters and numbers, she inherited her dad's love of candy corns, she loves being outside, she had her first bike ride in her new carseat and didn't even cry when we put the helmet on her. She's such a fun baby and we are always laughing at her silliness.

Raheem: is chubby and lazy, except when newcomers stop by for a visit then he is a maniac. His sole purpose in life is obtaining food. He tolerates Maddie's playfulness and is ecstatic when I take him for rides in the car.

Scott is all excited that Casey is getting a scooter. He keeps trying to convince me that we need another one with a sidecar for Eva. Riiiight. Speaking of Eva, we are SOO glad that you watch Eva for us on Monday's! A million times thank you!

Scary incident with the brakes! Glad you're ok:) As for Nemo, put shaving cream on the disc & then rinse it off with warm water & pat it dry. It's worked every time for me...and my kids scratch a lot of movies:)

I wish we could hang out with your fun family!

So did Casey get a scooter?!

I have always wanted a scooter, that is AWESOME!!!! What a fun update (minus the brake story, that sounds scary). And since having Elsie, obtaining food is Marley's one objective as well.
