The Just's took advantage of the fabulous weather that God has provided this week and got outside! Tuesday night Todd played two softball games with the church team while Owen and I cheered :). Owen has become a challenge to hold (he moves, and moves and moves) especially for two ballgames so Pam gave my muscles a break (she's who is holding him in the first picture). Friday night we attended Owen's first Salina South football game. He was pretty tuckered out by halftime so we watched the band and headed back home to eat some cereal and head to bed. Saturday found us at the Rolling Hills Refuge zoo. As you can see Owen wasn't super enthused with the animals, but Mommy and Daddy enjoyed them. At one point Owen was sleeping, but was awoken by the sweet smell of rhino poo :)! The picture of Todd watching the giraffes is the "G" rated one, they were feeling pretty frisky that day. We were worried we were going to have to give Owen "the talk" :). Other events this week included getting a new stove...woohoo! It's offically in the house and should be hooked up tomorrow by my handy dandy husband. The one that came with the house was ancient, and put out a few smells we weren't entirely comfortable with. Let's see, I lost another pregnancy pound, but am still 5 from being to my pre-preggo weight. I'm just waiting for Owen to take off and then I know it'll be gone in no time. And to wrap it up, today Owen spent the afternoon with the Jones' and had a great time!

We have been in our new house for 2 months and 13 days and we can now say Owen's room is finished! Painting projects seem to make their way to the back burner easily. But finally over Labor Day weekend we put it at the top of the list (still didn't get it finished that week), but did put a good enough dent in it that we were able to finish the next weekend. Projects complete were: diamonds painted on the wall, letters painted and hung, and bookshelf painted. Doesn't sound like much when I type it out, but it took a long time!
The pun can never get old right? Let me know when I've overdone it :). We've had a busy week here at the Just house. Todd has been out of town since Thursday afternoon, first to a youth pastor retreat (which he enjoyed very much), then straight to Hutch to call a football game Friday, then home just long enough to catch a few zzz's before we left this morning at 5:30 a.m. for Kansas City/Liberty, MO. Todd went to a conference while I spent time with Bryan and Heather in K.C. I too have had a busy week, just not as busy as Todd's with cleaning two houses, cleaning my own house to get ready to host a baby shower for a Sunday School friend, taking "O" to his Dr. and shot appointments. I have to confess I was in the same building for the shots appointment, but I left the room during the "stabbing". It was too hard for me last time so Todd took care of it this time, what a great Daddy :). As for Owen you already know he had appointments, he's now 75th% for height and 50th% for weight. He stayed in the nursurey for the first time Wednesday night and then again Thursday morning. Grandma came to visit for most of the day Friday, where she got to see his latest.... trying to escape from his bouncy seat , chewing on his socks and eating cereal (see pics and video)! And Owen will not continue to eat this way, Todd just had to see the way he ate the first time when I didn't know what I was doing ;)! Finally, Saturday he made the trip to K.C., he's a good little traveler :)! That was our week!

Owen attended his first Mustang game last night and loved every minute of it! He had the best seat in the house up in the press box next to Daddy who was doing play-by-play for the game. He watched so intensely that he had to take a cat nap during the 3rd quarter. The Mustangs won so everybody left happy :)!
Welcome to our new "family" blog! I will do my best to keep everyone up to date on life in the Just household. Most recently our little guy decided he likes taking steps with assistance (although Dad does not define it that way, yet he has no definition of it so that will have to do for now). Actually to be exact I believe he started doing this 2 weeks ago, but we just got around to filming it. He's doing well as are the rest of us, Todd just started calling high school football games and I am loving not teaching and being a Mommy! Well, check this video clip out and maybe you can identify what exactly he's doing :)!
