Time Off, and Goodbyes

This past weekend I was able to go to the coast and enjoy some much needed time off. This is the third year I have been able to go on this trip. I am very grateful that I have a husband who allows me to take breaks. I think that he know I need them, and it's better for all of us if I get to take a break on occasion. On Saturday night the group got to talking about the changes in our group over the last year, and how different life is looking for all of us. This year will be the last year Alison is with us. She is taking a new job in Pennsylvania, Alison and her family will be greatly missed by our group. I'm looking forward to the year ahead, and what we all will be talking about next year on our trip. As we continue to go through the journey of motherhood, marriage, and life together. I'm so glad that I have a group of friends to laugh, cry and share life with. On Sunday we are getting together as couples to have a last dinner with Alison and Niklas. I'm sure this dinner will be full of laughter and tears.

This past week with Isaac has been a very long week. We didn't do anything, we didn't go anywhere(other than the doctor), we were home. It all started Wednesday of last week, Isaac has been working on potty training and doing very well. Wednesday however he was grumpy, and stubborn. My little guy is usually so happy, but I just thought he is two and having a day. Late Wednesday night the truth was relieved with Isaac temperature rising and uncontrollable crying. After a very long night, Thursday morning rolled around, Isaac didn't wake u until 10:15. A large part of me wanted to believe that this was because he hadn't slept all night, but I knew better. When he woke up his temperature was 104.2, my little man was sick. This has gone on now for 5 days. Today is the first day that he is fever free, and starting to act like a 2 year old again. After 3 doctors visits a trip to the ER(temperature was 105.6) he is on the mend. There is a long medical name for what he has/had, but I don't remember what it is. I'm so gald that he is doing better, it is now time to give my house a bath in Clorox and Lysol. I'm hoping next week I will have all sorts of exciting pictures and stories to tell.

Spring Break 2010

I know I haven't blogged in way to long, so lets hope that this post turns over a new leaf. We spent spring break with Luke's brother Corey, we all had a great time. The weather was great a few days that he was here which aloud us to enjoy the wonderful pacific north west. I haven't blogged in so long I don't even know were to start with what is new in our lives. Keep looking for post on what is new with our family and the kids.

Being that today is Thanksgiving I thought I would do a quick post, about some of the things I'm thankful for.

  1. My wonderful family, I know that they all love me. I know that my husband is my very best friend and will always be my biggest supporter.
  2. The roof over my head and the furnace that heats it. I know this may sound really silly, but so many of us have taken our homes for granted.
  3. Each one of my kids, I know that I already said my family, but I feel like the kids are a different part of that. Each one of them is so special and wonderful, they bring so much laughter and love into my life each day.
I have so much to be thankful for and I could keep going with my list, but those are my top three. I hoping that my post next week will be something a little more interesting, maybe it will have something to do with my kids, who know we will see.

Excuse Me Sir, I Think You're Crazy!

That is exactly what I thought tonight when the nice man at Sunset Cycle told us that Morgan needed a 20" bike! I looked at the bike, looked back at my fairly small five year old and asked if we could have her try the 16". He said we could but, he wanted to try the larger of the two first. Well I guess there is a reason he works at the bike shop and I don't, a quick test ride around the parking lot and she was sold. She rode it all around out front tonight with no problem, I'm still waiting for the first major fall. Lets just hope its me being overprotective, I don't really want her to fall.
