Chase and Daddy went to church on Saturday evening in case the weather was bad on Sunday morning, which it wasn't. In the afternoon, Mama, Daddy and Chase met Uncle Will-Bill, Aunt Becca and Uncle Stan for lunch at Syberg's before a ladies basketball game at Chavetz Arena. The SLU team won. Chase had a quesadilla at Syberg's. Mama said Chase seemed to have a really good time. Nanaw came over to visit in the evening and had bacon with the family. Dinner was bacon and cinnamon rolls. Chase and Nanaw played with their iPads on the kitchen table and then they played hockey in the hall. It was a rough game and ended up a 16 to 16 tie. Next, they played with Chase's zoo in his room. When Daddy put new shelves in there, he put the zoo right in front so it was easy to get to. After they were done with the zoo, Chase and Nanaw went downstairs and played with his table hockey game. It ended in a 2 -2 tie.

Chase had a soccer game on Saturday morning at 9:40 and Nanaw went. She doesn’t like to go to 8 a.m. games but the others are okay. Chase did really well; he had two assists and he hit the post three times with the ball so with just inches they could have been goals. After the soccer game, Nanaw stayed at Chase's house for awhile, while Mama went grocery shopping. Nanaw and Chase played games on their iPads and iPhones and tablets. Daddy ordered a new toy for Chase, a Playmobile Hockey from Amazon, because Chase had earned 75 points. Nanaw learned that later in the day, unfortunately, Chase got mad and Daddy told him he wasn't going to get the Playmobile Hockey until he was good. In the evening, Chase texted messages to Nanaw, using Mama's phone. Nanaw loves when Chase sends messages. And when Mama sends messages.

Mama had the day off on Friday and took Chase to school. Then Mama and Nanaw had a mother-daughter day. First, they went to Telegraph Road Walmart. Nanaw bought Mama a gray shirt with white skulls on it; the skulls had hearts for eyes. Then they went to the Telegraph Road library so Mama could replenish her book supply. Next, they went to Bootsy's in Waterloo for lunch. They had to wait about 10 minutes to be seated but Bootsy's has a general store so there were a lot of things for them to look at. It finally started to snow while they were having lunch but the snow never got that deep and didn’t pile up on the roads. Nanaw picked Chase up from school, and it was still snowing.
Chase brought home a book titled My Littlest Valentine that had a little girl and a puppy in it.
When they got home, Nanaw got out the Fortnite toys she bought Chase for Valentine's Day. They opened all of them and put them in the special red box Nanaw got from Uncle Doug -- it had been filled with Christmas cookies. They played with the Fortnite toys for awhile. Then Chase had Nanaw download some game apps on her iPad for him. Daddy picked Chase up about 6:30 on his way home from work. Mama went dress shopping and to dinner with Brady's mom and Hunter's mom.

Happy Valentine's Day! Thursday, February 14, 2019

When Nanaw took Chase to school on Valentine's Day, he was too shy to give his Valentine to Mrs. Neff, and he asked Nanaw to do it. Mama put together packets of candy and a card for Chase to give to his classmates. Nanaw went to volunteer on Thursday morning and had a great time with the boys and girls. They're so much fun, and Nanaw really enjoys volunteering. Chase's class had a valentine's party in the afternoon, and Chase had a decorated bag full of cards and goodies. He ate some of the blueberry fun dip, and his finger turned green -- very funny. When Nanaw took Chase home, he made a Valentine card for Daddy, and then Mama, Chase and Nanaw went to the Waterloo KFC to get chicken for dinner. Mama and Chase gave Nanaw a darling stuffed puppy and an Amazon gift card. Nanaw got Chase some Fortnite toys that they'll keep at Nanaw's house.

Daddy had the day off from work so he took Chase to school. Nanaw was very happy when it was time to pick Chase up from school. She asked Chase what he had for lunch, and he said soft tacos, which were very good and which he ate all of. He said he played soccer at all three recesses and did really well and had fun. In his backpack was a picture he drew at school with Dad (the picture says Cool), Chase and puffins. Nanaw asked where Mama and Nanaw were, and Chase said he didn't put them in. Nanaw asked Chase if he could draw a picture with Mama, Nanaw and the puffins; Chase said no but that he could add them to his first picture. Nanaw asked if anyone was out sick today, and Chase said two were but he couldn't remember who. Once again, Chase fell asleep on the way home. Evidently, school wears the little fellow out. When they got home, Chase and Nanaw went to Chase's room and watched the weather channel for awhile. Then they went to play on the computers. Chase played several games of Roblox. Nanaw made sure to get Chase home early so he could do his homework and eat dinner before it was time for his first skating lesson in Webster. Mama and Daddy were taking him. Nanaw gets to go on the 27th.

When Chase got to Nanaw's house on Tuesday morning, he wanted to do their texting thing again. This is where Nanaw gives her phone to Chase, and he texts her, and she reads the message on her iPod and then replies to Chase. Mostly, it's a lot of emojis, which Chase loves. He also talks a lot about hockey -- great fun for both of them. When Nanaw picked Chase up, she asked him if he liked his cold lunch, and he said it was very good. (At school, they had sausage links, and Chase is not a fan of them.) Nanaw made sure to put Chase's lunch bag in his backpack as soon as Mama gave it to her so that there was no repeat of the time Nanaw forgot the lunch bag and left it in the car. It was very traumatic for Chase, and Mrs. Neff had to reassure him with a chef salad. Chase said he played with Evan at first and second recess and then with Cole at third recess -- they played soccer with other boys. In computer class, Chase said he played with abcya. On the way home, Chase and Nanaw stopped at Chase's house to let Sam out. Then they ran errands, and Chase fell asleep. When they got home, Chase went into his room, turned on the weather channel and fell asleep on his futon. Daddy came to pick Chase up because Mama had a hair appointment.

Mama was looking for Chase's big Jack, and Nanaw was happy to find him on Monday morning on the back of Chase's futon, covered up by Chase with the comforter. At first on Monday morning, Nanaw was not sure Chase was going to be okay to go to school. Mama said he said he didn't feel well, and she gave him Tylenol and Pedialyte. But he decided to go to school. Nanaw kept expecting a call saying to come pick him up but it never came. Chase was excited to take his new Cardinals water bottle to school. Nanaw found the water bottle Chase left at school on Friday right by his locker. When Nanaw picked Chase up from school, he said he had chicken noodle soup for lunch and that five boys and girls were out sick but he could only remember a few names. When Chase got home from school, he and Nanaw played a little bit of hockey. Then they put stickers in his hockey sticker book. Then Chase told Nanaw about a new app he was interested in so Nanaw downloaded it. She later learned from Mama that she shouldn't download apps unless Chase earns them somehow.
