With the days counting down to the cath, Rudy’s been spending most of his time at home. We’re probably not as obsessive about it as we could be, but with all that goes into getting a cath date (lab and doc schedules) we’d hate to see any delays caused due to Rudy catching a bug. As it was perhaps the only weekend this year where we’ve had to endure a dose of that brutal Santa Barbara winter (read 55F with intermittent showers), he hasn’t been lonely indoors. So, I just thought we’d give a few glimpses of our regular weekend at home.
Rudy’s last day out was Thursday for school. His class, the “Bear Club”, went on a walk to the neighborhood market and the teachers spotted a little good luck gift to send him off with:
Being home bound isn’t all that bad. Especially when you’re as easy to please as Rudy. Most days, he’ll go into the kitchen and find himself a cup to stick over his hand and carry around most of the day. Some days a cup is hard to find, but this time of year it’s pretty easy to find a box of Girl Scout Cookies in the cupboard. Rudy found one yesterday and, after quickly tossing aside the cookies, he held on to the box for several hours–even through his nap.
Housebound or not, we still expect the kids to help out with chores. It’s amazing how even Rudy can pitch in and be surprisingly helpful. Check out this video of him helping us polishing the kitchen floor.
Max was scarce this weekend as he wowed audiences in the GVJH production of 42nd Street. In between playing to three packed houses, he found time to entertain and educate his little brother in fine art of zerberts. Take it away, Max!
Thanks so much for checking in and for all the kind notes and comments. It was a full and fun weekend–stay tuned for the eventful week ahead.
