We just finished our first full week of Summer break. And we have stayed out of Riley Hospital for a full week...Hallelujah. Riley Hospital is a wonderful place, but I do not want to return any time in the near future. Devin came home from his five day stay, went to school the next day, then two days later we ended back up in the emergency room. Three enemas later and an overnight stay, and he was back to normal. Yesterday he woke up and said he is back to 100%, which makes this momma very happy!
A few weeks ago, my husband decided to give our backyard playset away. The only thing our kids used it for was to jump off the top of the monkey bars onto the trampoline. I was a little sad to see it go, but we get to visit it at our friend's house. And over there, my boys are actually swinging (and fighting over the swings, of course)!
Here is Moose on his last day of school with his teacher he had for two years. We loved her!! He is going to be in total shock when he has a new teacher and different classmates. Hopefully third grade will be good to him.
Devin took a lot of naps this week while he was recovering. He hasn't slept this much in a long time! Healing from surgery is tough work.
We have gotten spinach from our garden three times now. It is so good! It makes a great salad. That's the only way I have eaten it so far.
And here are the chickens that we hope will be producing some fresh eggs in a few months. I am excited about farm fresh eggs!
And lastly here is Noah on the first and last day of sixth grade. I think he looked like a baby at the beginning of the year. He has really changed and grown a lot. He is a great kid, but still has his moments! He is excited about basketball camps this summer. I think he will end up participating in three of them.
And really for the last thing, I found this great article titled, What Every Mom Needs to Hear (on the first day of summer) on one of my favorite blogs, We are THAT Family. I am making this part of my required daily reading because summers can be long and rough, especially when I am outnumbered by boys!!
