      The Redskins have opened their 2019 season with two losses. Both against Divisional foes. Now they get to close out Week 3 at home on Monday Night against the visiting 1-1 Chicago Bears. The Bears don't have much of an offense but seem to have what may be an elite defense.
       
      On the flip side, the Redskins have a developing passing attack and a disastrous defense. The Redskins haven't had a Defense this vanilla since Mike Nolan received his ice cream. Oh, and the Redskins already have more guys on IR then any other team this season. 
       
      Will the Redskins finally put one in the win column? 
       
      As usual, poll closes at kickoff. Go vote!

Goodness, the granularity of ultrasounds these days. I didn't have any with my daughter, 41 years ago. They didn't do them regularly then unless there was some indication of problems.

It's absolutely astonishing how much they both look like you, LSF. 

 

Yep, they totes do.  

 

My man hit 5 months this week.  The boy needs some sun.

Pics coming soon, however Sullivan Taylor D. (Last name withheld to protect the guilty) was born at 10:48pm tonight.

 

And yes, both the first two Initials (ST) and the middle name were intentional.

I love seeing this thread bumped. Congrats all!

 

My daughter's artwork (1st grade) was just put up in a local art gallery that's doing an exhibit of student work.

No need to brag on my sons. They are both fine on their own.

That's what we in the business call a humble brag.

My sophomore daughter started powerlifting in December in the 132lb division.  She added 150lbs to her total between the first meet in January and regionals at the end of February and finished 11th in the region out of about 300 girls.  The goal for next year is to make it to state!

Wow!

What events is she lifting in for her total weight?

Ethan just hit the 600lbs club this last fall; I think bench, squat, and deadlift.

Mostly not my doing. I give credit to their mother.

My 4 year old can do basic addition and subtraction of mainly single or low double digit numbers (verbally, in his head).  I think it’s pretty good for someone of his age.

My eldest managed not to puke up her Frosty at her soccer game.

 

My middle kid did not have a meltdown because I didn’t get her a vanilla frosty instead of a chocolate one

 

My 18 month old didn’t have a massive blowout despite me not having wipes or diapers on hand when I was out of the house.

 

As MLK once said: King Kong ain’t got **** on me!

 

or is that Training Day? I get the two confused.

Yes, bench, squat and deadlift.  She finished at 650.  260 squat, 120 bench and 270 deadlift.  She was going for 700 at regionals but that was a little too ambitious.  She was determined to go big or go home.

Olive sang in her school's choir concert last night. We were sitting on bleachers pretty far away for 3 hours (last time I sat in bleachers was 50 years ago my senior year!)  

 

Olive is the girl smiling with her hands around her neck. Such a happy, beautiful girl!

Oldest asked his girlfriend to marry him 2 weeks ago and she said yes. Elaborate plan that had just about the whole family helping to make sure it worked out. Proposed at upper Eagle Falls at Emerald Bay in Tahoe. Met him for dinner afterwards in Carson and he even had payment ready for the place the two of them chose to be married at

 Very proud.

Then her parents found out. Offered to pay for the wedding and all prior plans went bye bye. No big deal whatever makes the two of them happy. That's the important part

😀

So long as they will pay for an ice sculpture of the Fun Bunch end-zone celebration everyone should be on board.

Yesterday. :) Oldest son got hitched. Wedding turned out great and kudos to her parents for pulling this one off.  I was "forbidden" by said oldest son from bringing my camera. Yeah right. :)
