Our first blog.

This blog is for Myr. She made us do this. We didn't want to, but Myr said we had to. So here I am creating the first blog posting for The Crawford Crew. I just started playing around and clicking on things and apparently found how to upload an image. So I chose the boys' picture which we had taken quite some time ago (Luke is 6 weeks old and Austin is a couple months past 2 years in this pic). Luke's now 8 months old and Austin's set to turn 3 on Nov. 2nd, just ask him. He'll also tell you everything he's going to get for his birthday too. He's now started asking for things for every holiday. Right now he's working on his Halloween list.

So all the blogs I see from all my friends have funny stories or neat things that happen to them. I feel like I have to dredge up something of that sort to post here. You can't just post for the sake of posting. You have to say something or relate something, right?

So let's see. Last night as Austin and I were enjoying the opening of the 2007 college football season together, he was playing with his cars and books which were scattered all over the living room. As he was running around he tripped over something and banged his knee on one of his cars. Mom was busy, so Dad got to play the role of caretaker as he came over with his blanket in one hand and snuggled up to me.

"Dad I fell and hurt my knee," he proceeded to tell me.

"I'm sorry," I replied.

"Dad, you didn't have anything to do with it!" Austin heatedly replied.

So I simply proceeded to kiss it better and not apologize for what I had nothing to do with, and we sat and watched more football together. It was a good father son bonding moment, only made possible because Mom was busy.

Alright, that's my first foray into the world of posting. Perhaps there'll be more ventures later, but given my past performance in journal keeping and responding to emails, perhaps there won't be. Myr, you just let me know when it's time to post again. Family pics coming soon so perhaps another post is just around the corner.
