Agonies of the FE exam


We love carrying Betsy in her sling -- and most of the time, she really gets a kick out of it, too. Now that she's getting older (almost 2 months!) she likes seeing a little bit more of the world. But, as you can tell from the picture, gazing up at Daddy is still a favorite pastime.

The cliche "when Momma ain't happy, nobody's happy" is only half true. Scott was stressed to no end over the FE a few weeks ago, and thus Momma and baby weren't exactly easy-going, either. He needed his sleep so badly that he slept on the couch so Mary Elizabeth wouldn't disturb him.

It was a grueling exam, beginning at 8 a.m. and ending at 5 p.m. with one half-hour break for lunch. Fortunately, Scott feels pretty confident that he passed, so we celebrated with a trip to the mall and Jason's Deli. (Their salad bar, I discovered, is now The Thing I Love To Eat The Most.)
