week of photo's by #1

What follows is some of the photo's that #1 has taken this week. Many got deleted by me but there are still quite a few to show!
We have many new lego creations. Which I'd describe in more detail but that was at the beginning of the week and I've already forgotten some of it.
Today we put some shaving cream on a couple cookie sheets. This was mainly for #3 as a fun way to practice writing letters. But we did let everyone have some fun playing in the shaving cream.
The older kids and I went swimming in the afternoon, James and #4 were suppose to join us but they ended up taking a long nap! Looking forward to improving everyones swimming skills this summer.
#2 is planning on having a tea party next Sunday. She picked out many craft projects to work on this next week so that we'll have proper decorations for a princess-like tea. We are thinking of making some cucumber sandwiches also. The kids have been talking in loud whispers about what kinds of treats they want to make for a mother's day surprise, so I'm not sure if we'll be making any other treats for the tea.

Today is the national day of prayer. If you haven't already taken the time to pray for our country today, I encourage you to do so. Let today be the start of you praying for the country routinely. Pray without ceasing 1 Thessalonians 5:17

Stomach Bug

That is what has hit our house. It's moved on to #1 and #4 today.
I took all the kids to #2's check up today. It took us longer to walk up from the lower parking lot to the building then the actual appointment. She was deemed to be looking good from the surgery and we'll go back in a month for another ultrasound-then we think we'll get the all clear from the doc.
I was listening to #2 and #3 talk today. #3 asked #2 what she wanted for her birthday. She said a sewing machine. He said oh, like mommies, with a big smile in his voice. I asked her what she was going to do with a sewing machine and she said she didn't know......maybe make a quilt. But not a big quilt, a doll sized one.

It's been a busy day today. I took #1 for his appointment today and all is well. By well I mean what I've been thinking is going on with his body was confirmed and the Doctor is putting him on Miralax. He got an xray taken today and we go back in about another week to get another so he can have before and after shots done to make sure the Miralax is doing it's job. It's nice to finally be moving in a direction that will be helpful to him. The Doctor mentioned that after his system is cleaned out he'll probably start eating more-I was laughing so hard when she said this! I said,"He has no trouble eating now!" I suppose you could say are children come from parents who are very healthy eaters.
Oh and I saw Valerie while I was there. Hi Valerie! Sorry I was in such a daze while I was there, afterwards I was wishing I had given you a hug and told you how wonderful you looked.

#2 wasn't feeling very well yesterday. She didn't eat breakfast or dinner, which had me a bit worried. She says she's doing fine today but doesn't seem quite up to snuff. She goes tomorrow for her follow up from the last surgery so we'll be sure to talk to the dr. about it.

A friend of mine watched the kids while #1 had his dr. appt. and afterwards I watched her child while she ran in for some blood work. They just got a puppy yesterday, so we got to dog sit too. He was so cute! A little Jack Russell terrier. This is the thrid time this week the kids have really had "dog time" with some else's pet. Mom, Dad you'll be happy to know it's just confirming my thoughts on bringing our dog back out here. :)
