Naim had soccer and won the game, so their team has a pretty good record.

After soccer they went to BFG, Big Friendly Giant at NWCT. Before they got there (they=Nik, Naim, Aaron) they stopped at the Burnside McDonald’s where someone apparently screamed and found a newborn baby in the toilet. Meanwhile, Nik and kids were in the mens room changing out of Naim’s soccer gear while someone in the next stall was shooting up. Don’t know the whole story, but some guy who was a army medic got the baby out of the toilet and wrapped it up in paper towels. The EMTs were called and all were taken to the hospital. It sounds like the mother was there, she did not abandon her baby in the toilet, just had it in the toilet and then sort of didn’t know what to do. Sad. As I told Nik, you do not have your baby in the McDonald’s bathroom unless you’ve got big problems. Hopefully they all will get the help they need. But sigh. The kids were really excited about it, but it was a hard question to answer why someone would have their baby there. We talked about homelessness a bit, which we’ve talked about before. I lit a candle for her and baby at Church today.


They all really liked BFG. My Boyfriend John Ellingson was BFG and Nik said he had a really good Scottish accent. After they went to the dollar store and got a few decorations for Holloween and went to D’s house for the afternoon.

Meanwhile, at home, Avery and I did a little bit of Buttercups stuff. He did a puzzle that he pasted the pieces together, we made a paper bag scarecrow. He really liked crumbling up the paper and stuffing it in the bag. And the gluestick.
