Week-End Update Although the Week-End Ain't Over

Notable points of interest:
The boys got out their air soft guns and the first thing they shot was their youngest brother's backside. Ouch.

  • The family made a fairly good attempt at a healthier lifestyle by planting. Premature planting, most likely.


  • The dad began the work of opening the pool; the water is 64 degrees. At this rate, it will be 27 years before the pool is warm enough for the mother to put her toe in.


  • Boy #2's trombone arrived. He can make a sound with it, and although his parents think this first year of band will be a long one, they never dreamed that a child who struggled with oral motor apraxia would one day be able to blow enough air into an intrument to make a sound. Interpretation: to the neighbors we do apologize, but to us, it was a sound of triumph.


  • The mother of the family traded bagel slicing duty for nursery duty on Sunday. She actually prefers the bagels.


  • The daughter and oldest son were overjoyed when their mother and father offered them the chance to go to Kentucky this summer to spend time with their grandparents. How much more thrilled they will be when they learn their Texas cousins will be there, too.


  • And lastly, asthma continues to taunt this boy and his parents' efforts at taming it.


  • And now to enjoy the last of the long week-end.

Asthma - my heart goes out to him. Have a good holiday, otherwise.

It all sounds pretty good, except for the asthma and getting shot in the butt.
Bagels are generally less wiggly than babies. But oh, so much cuter. :)
Take care, Suz

Have fun listening to the trombone...haha....my son played one. When he was first learning, we decided the sound would fit right in in the barn.

Praying your son will soon outgrow his asthsma.

Happy Memorial Day! :) I played trombone once - i hated carrying it everywhere and quickly switched to the flute. I wish him luck! :)

I guess I won't hold my breathe to get invited over for a swim unless I want to wear a wet suit!

Bless! You do pack it all in, don't you! I'd be ready for Monday if only to get a break :-)

I did NOT like the nebulizer for the year our boy was two, so I am sorry you're battling with asthma.

CHEERS to the Trombone man. You may find that the first year is not so long. I miss hearing all the brass in our house and the silence makes me sad.
