We took Bennett to the Iowa Energy game at noon today. He sat mesmerized through the first quarter but inevitably got fidgety after that. He liked watching the dancers and he was crazy for Surge, the mascot. The entire game he just kept saying his name and whenever he was on our side of the court he'd wave and say, "hi Surge!" He finally got to wear his Jordan sneakers that Uncle Aaron bought for him when he was just a few weeks old. They're now dubbed his b-ball shoes. His t-shirt was from Uncle Aaron too. It was an exciting day for Bennett and he was expressing his independence. He wanted to climb the stadium stairs all by himself (even though he can barely step up!) and he wanted to walk everywhere else too.
On the home front, I spent the entire day yesterday painting at the Johnston house, thankfully with tons of help (and good food) from my mom and dad and also my friend Erin pitched in. We got the master bedroom and powder room bathroom finished. Next on the list is the basement. Jon's working on all the trim work right now and making good progress.
