Welp. Here I am again playing catch up!
So here’s another big, huge post about what’s been happening…
Towards the end of February, my brother, Jesse had a major snowboarding accident…he shattered his knee and broke his leg. They couldn’t do reconstructive surgery right away because of the swelling. So instead, they drilled a 20 lbs. bar into his thigh and shin bones to stabilize his leg until they could do the surgery (a week later!)… gaaaaggggg it still gives me the willies!There was lots of time spent in the hospital, but the boys kept us entertained…After they did the surgery, we got Jesse home by making a bed in the back of my van for him.
—Bad Mom Moment— I had to rearrange the kids car seats when I removed the middle seat section to go get Jesse. And I may or may not have forgotten to lock Ty’s carseat into place…The first turn I made out of my neighborhood, this happened… So of course, I pulled over, took this picture, AND THEN fixed it…nice, tight, and secure.
Scared him silly.
Jesse is in physical therapy now, he has a long way to go, but is doing 100 times better!
The last day, they whipped out the parachute. I mean, who doesn’t love the parachute?! Ty was all smiles.But he may have just been smiling because they gave him a grocery bag to hold his certificate and treats in… He came running up to me, “Mommy! They gave me this bag!!!!” Ty does love a good bag.Ty and his new neighbor friend, Brandon.
Ellie has become a little tornado of destruction everywhere she goes. But her favorite place is the kitchen.This was all done while I was making dinner…and all of the stuff in this picture doesn’t even go in those drawer…she completely swapped all of this from other cupboards. Lovely.
Easton wrote this cute letter at school for St. Patrick’s Day. I love it.And then, there’s this girl. Katie. She is in our carpool. Easton talks about her a lot. Easton says “maybe I have a little tiny crush on her”. But I think it’s a pretty big crush when you dedicate your final animal research book to her AND her family…
Easton got to have a sleepover with his cousin, and so, to compensate, we took Ty for a ride on the Sheels Ferris Wheel…he’s never been happier.And last, but not least… I know it’s completely unrealistic, and maybe a little revealing… But I just couldn’t help myself! Come on! It’s a yellow polka dot bikini! But, it will be the only bikini I will allow…ever.
That’s all for now…anyone who is still reading this, I commend you!
Get excited… the Easter and Conference post is coming tomorrow.
