Been awhile

Well, it has been a while since I have blogged, but in my defense, it is because I felt like this.

It has been a pretty busy couple of weeks for our family between the move and the pregnancy. Also, I spent all weekend at the Opryland Hotel chaperoning a youth trip with our church. 

In baby news - I have been put on complete pelvic rest.  I have something called "placenta previa" which is when the placenta is covering the "exit" - so to speak.  Because of this I can't lift anything heavier than a gallon and milk and I have to be really careful.  This means that I can't lift weights anymore - which is a pretty big bummer for me.  I am still walking, but it just isn't the same.  Also, I am probably going to have to have a c-section to avoid the risk of hemorrhage. There is a chance that it can still move, but I am not going to get my hopes up. 

We have gotten through our home inspection (pretty easy) and the home inspection for our new home (doesn't look too bad), so we are one stop closer to finishing this process. I guess I will start boxing thing up this weekend. 

Finn's basketball pictures came in this week.  I love this picture!

We also had Spring pictures at school last week.  Finn was so excited when he realized that he got to wear "normal" clothes.  However, he got really upset when he realize that he couldn't wear his basketball gear.  Finn hates wearing jeans. 



This week we learned that Finn placed the highest in the Kindergarten class for reading skills.  We were very proud of him.  As a prize we let him download Minecraft on his tablet.


This morning was "Wacky Wednesday" for Sam.  Even though you can't tell from the picture, Sam is wearing my leg warmers.

I have posted a few pictures from the HCA website.

Manhandled

Finn and Sam give Will absolutely NO personal space whatsoever.  They are always in face yelling and grabbing on him.  For a few minutes he will tolerate it.


Then he gets mad and starts swinging those arms.  I have warned both boys that they deserve whatever Will dishes out. 


Last Thursday was Finn's field day.  He wasn't too excited about it because he didn't get to participate at all.  He was even more upset by the fact that he only came home with a "participants" ribbon.  I guess Finn expected to get a ribbon for "Best Score Keeper."

Gatlinburg 2.0

In mid-June Finn and Sam accompanied Grandad and Gigi to Gatlinburg.  This is their second annual trip so will refer to it as Gatlinburg 2.0. Michael, Will and I were at home, so outside of some awesome pictures and few sweet phone calls, we don't have a great deal of knowledge about the trip. What I do know is that the trip started with hot Kristy Kremes.  Upon arriving in Gatlinburg, Finn asked if the "hot sign" was on.  Seeing that it was, they stopped in for donuts.


They also went back to Clingman's Dome.  They went last year, but I didn't pack long pants and jackets so they were pretty chilly.  It was also really foggy last year.  This year went as planned; the air was clear and the boys were warm.


One of my favorites!



Another favorite.




And . . . another favorite.









They went to Dollywood later than evening and then again the next day.



It amazes me how pop culture "savy" kids are at 5.  I was never that "in the loop."

Surprise sickness

When I picked Will up from daycare yesterday, I was informed that several babies had gone home throwing up.  Thirty minutes later - Will threw up too - in the car! It was so gross and so smelly.  The boys were really upset. For a minute, I thought they would throw up from the smell.  Luckily, we were on our way to the dentist so they quickly forgot about Will's vomit and started panicking about the dentist.  You see, I had kept this little tidbit from them until right before time to go.  This spared me days of whining.


Oh, and Will just started eating carrots.  That is why he is orange. 
When he got to the dentist's office I took Will in to change him.  When I pulled his only spare outfit out of the diaper bag I notice that the "do not steal me" hard, plastic tag was still attached.  Perfect.  I decided that he would just wear nothing.  So he sat in my lap, wearing nothing but his diaper all while throwing up into a baby blanket.  It was a make it work moment.  And o…
