This is a game Sam likes to play on Sundays. We'll draw scenes from scripture stories and the other person will have to guess what it is. This one was his most difficult yet, mainly because it wasn't a depiction of one of the several fighting scenes he usually draws. After 10 minutes I still couldn't get it so made him give me hints. Here are the hints he gave me...see if you can guess.
This one doesn't have any fighting.
It starts with a P.
The structure *1 means a journey.
*2 is a crown cause that guy is wealthy
*3 are drinks cause those guys are partying.
Here are some more hints from Sam since no one has guessed it yet.
The three people on the left are in a house.
The three people on the right are in a far away land.

Sam has been exhausted recently. This is him last night falling asleep on me while we were waiting for Mom to come say prayers with us. He also has a huge apetite. He's the first one to clear his plate each night, and the other day wanted me to order him another hamburger at Wendys. I think it's the roids. Here are some other recent pictures:Going for an Autumn walk with Maggie.Playing in the leaves.

I just applied for a residency in radiation oncology. It's a tough one to get, but we are going for it and if it's meant to be, it'll be. People tell me the interviews should start coming by Halloween. Then I interview from November to January and then wait until March to know if I was accepted anywhere. Currently I am using a vacatoin month to study for step 2 of the boards which I plan to take at the end of the month. So the next few months will be exciting and stressful. Here is the rest of the family.
"Would you like to have my old football Sam?"
" Okay, I guess I'll just have it dad."
Then he ran and got his little football and said, Here Kate, you can have this football cause I got a big football. Kate didn't care. Her hands were already full with her other stuff.
Lately Sam's been walking aroud saying, "I'm Barack Obama, and I approved this message." I'll be glad when the election is over and we can watch TV in peace again.
The other day when I was studying she walked into my room with her kitty. I asked her how her kitty was and she said, "Well, he needs a time out."
"Oh no, how come?" I asked.
"Well, he's not listening to me...and...he hit Sammy."
Apparantly she's become quite familiar with that process.
This is us at the Wisconsin Dells. Tricia requested to be the one taking the picture. The Wisconsin Dells is the Las Vegas of water parks. Instead of casinos water parks line the strip of this little town just a couple hours from our house. I was presenting a poster at a conference and we decided to make a mini family vacation out of it. The kids had a blast. We'll planning to return in January. Yes I am that white, and no I haven't done a push up since I began medical school.
Guess who started school? Its hard to believe I have a child old enough to start school when I haven't even managed to finish that portion of my own life yet. He only goes for 2 hours a day, and by the time they get done with snack time, nap time, recess, play time, and story time, I don't think there is any formal learning occurring at all. But he's developing his social skills and getting to know new people. He talks about one little girl in his class in particular. And so far he loves school which is good I tell him, cause there is a lot more where that comes from.
