Not even the baby was safe from these pranksters!
T's last game is tonight. He has gotten to play a fair amount of football this season. They have had 2 of the starters break their arms--(ya think they might need more milk??) and for the last 3 weeks we have had sick kids each game. I worked today so I didn't travel the hour to the game tonight--guess he didn't break an arm--no one has called! He has finally got his contacts figured out. He had a horrible time learning how to insert that puppy! He can see better. He checks in with the eye doctor in the morning to make sure it is fitting right.
Dev got to go to a local pumpkin patch this morning and came home with a HUGE pumpkin. He is excited. We are trying to figure out what he and Cami will be for Halloween. Costumes are on our weekend shopping list.
Cami is not going to potty train--she can pee on command now when you set her on, and occasionally she will tell us she needs to go but mostly if we don't catch her, she doesn't catch us! AHHH--I hate potty training! Took her to the chiropracter this week to assist her in her PMS phase--I think it helped--and her daycare provider thought she was back to her nice self. She just keeps growing and growing!
Our other nurse practitioner has been gone for the better part of 2 weeks now, so call has been more often and busier. I am ready for April to be here and flu season to be over. The sick list on Monday for elementary and middle school was 21, by 12:30 it was up to 36 and by the end of the day it was 42. Whole families are dropping like flies! We have had confirmed H1N1 in the county and many positive influenza A screens(the same strain as H1N1) So far this family has been lucky! I am counting down the days until the end of the year. I am feeling very overwhelmed between kids/family/home/sports/church activities/and 4-H stuff. I know, I know. . . JUST SAY NOOOOO!
Tomorrow I am loading up 4 kids, (providing none of them are on the sick list) and heading for Topeka to visit Sis and her family. I have been sending boxes of Cami's outgrown clothing and boy stuff for 2 years now and she is having a garage sale. So we are going up to help out and hang out. The new Yukon has a DVD player in the back, so that should help the ride go faster and more quietly!
J is headed to the last race of the season in Great Bend. He took out a couple of weeks ago and was home by 7:30 am (he left a little after 6) because he was feeling so rotten from a cold. So he feels good, the weather should be nice, and he will be GONE!!
So there ya have it, wanted to update all the far away families on our happenings around here. The greenhouse is up and running, tomato and pepper plants are repotted, green onion seeds are planted, lettuce is nearly ready to eat!! I think this adventure is going to be a blast!! Next weekend I'm heading on a girls trip to see the musical Wicked in Wichita (I have been waiting on the edge of my seat since winter 2008 when they first reported that it was coming!). Our 7th annual Halloween party will take place next Sunday afternoon. A lot of our usual crowd has a final peewee football game that day, so our crowd may be down a little! Usually there are over 40 kids there! It is a ball! Hope everyone has a great weekend!
