Eli has lived on the couch for days, with us hand-feeding him bites and sips getting maybe two handfuls of goldfish and an applesauce all day, and trying desperately to get most of a water bottle down. Until this afternoon when he got up to play in the floor - which is a big deal considering how he has felt this week, and I was watching him closely expecting him to give it up and get back on
the couch. He lasted a little while, so when he wanted his phone from the car to play Angry Birds, I told him that he had to come with me to get it (we are on the second floor). He agreed, then I stretched a bit and told Caleb to come. Then when we got ready, I stretched a bit more and told him that we were going to let Caleb play on the playground a minute (it is very cool out today for Houston). He was not happy with me, (been there countless times!), but he did it… fussin’, but he did it for a little while. He did eat half of a piece of pizza at prompting.

If you have anything to send to Eli, just continue to send to The Grasshopper, 107 S. Marion Street, Athens, AL 35611. The mail is weird here, UPS leaves it in the office, FedEx sometimes does, sometimes doesn’t, we have to get in the car to go get the mail… so just keep it there, and Vic will bring it when he comes. Thank you for always thinking aout Eli and us as we are away from home. The kids miss home a lot, and are going to be more than ready to go home this weekend. If Eli is not well enough, Vic will probably just come to get them, so either way, they will get a break.
