Beginning of our Summer

Our summer has started with a lot of fun!!!

Nana Dianne and Bapa Craig went on a camping trip in their new RV, and on their way back home, stopped by for a couple of days!  Lots of fun was had, including a water balloon fight!!! :)


Nana is such a good sport!!!


by the time I got my camera out, Bapa had already exited the scene!  And, his sidekick Winnie....always by his side when he comes!


One night when they were here, we headed over to our FAVORITE mexican place!  Daddy and I finally got smart phones, and the girls were showing us some funny things you can do on them!  ha!!!






Finn wants to be outside ALL THE TIME.  This day, he and Livie did some fun chalk drawings!



I am doing a bunch of projects, like always.  Here is one that was started and completed already:  Finn's abacus!  I wanted it to not be primary colors...instead, match his room a bit more!






We got to watch baby Elisha for a couple hours one day, too!  He is just the squishiest cutest!!!


Finn hasn't been able to go to the pool yet, so he and Liv have been doing their best to have some fun water time outside!!!


and, this boy....not sure where it came from, but he prefers to not be fully clothed anymore.  He either has pants off, or a shirt off, mostly all time time at home.  But, many times you can find him just like this, too!!!!


Some church friends and I decorated for a baby shower with a "woodland owl" theme.  It actually turned out super cute! :)


I did a big project for my sister in law...3 big 20x24 pieces, and then a name piece as well....They look so great in her home!!!





Dove chocolates are on roll back at Walmart, so we have been eating a lot...it's fun to read what they say!


And, here's mr Finn at his follow up appt with his Dr.  He can now go to the pool and jump on the trampoline!  No restrictions!!!  WHOO HOO!!!!!!!

Liv's last day of 4th grade

Liv was not ready to be done with Mrs Anderson :(  She is just one of the gems in our district!!!  Sad for us, but Mrs Anderson's husband had surgery, so she was gone the last few days of school (her mini-me daughter was her sub)

Liv made her this cute card :)



Last day and First Day

The class wore their "class shirts" for the last day!



I went a bit earlier, and got some fun pics of Liv and her class!!!!!


One last pic with her locker!


Her student teacher that she liked so much!


Math teacher

Science/Social Studies teacher

One more pic with her friend as we were leaving!

Had to celebrate by blowing up some balloons and jumping off the couch!!!!


IT'S SUMMER!

Finn has surgery :(

We woke up really really early, and headed to BIG TOWN for surgery!  We had been talking about it for weeks, and so there was really nothing that surprised Finn about the whole ordeal...






This time, he was much more aware of people, and feelings, so we were careful with words and actions.  One of the doctors gave him this cool football!!!  He loved that!


They had a lady come and show Finn pictures of where he was going, and what was going to happen.  This was just like some of the youtube videos we had watched, so he knew just what was happening!


Avery asked him to pose for a pic... here he is saying to her "Topo Gigio" :)


He got some fun wheels for this little trip to the operating room!



They were all so great and helpful!  I walked him into the room, and helped him up on the table.  They talked to us a little bit, and then told Finn they were going to let him put the mask on.  Once that happened, he didn't like the smell at all, and didn't really want to be doing that.  However, after a couple breaths, he was already out, so off to sleepy land he went.  

Again, I cried leaving him....it's just so hard to see your baby in that situation.....

Recovery was more rough this time.  He wasn't crazy or screaming, but he was tired, sad, and in pain. 


It allowed for a lot of cuddles.



During one of those cuddles, he threw up all over momma, so we switched out mommy for daddy!  It was a rough little bit, not being sure what was going on or what was to happen next.





We had this girl with us, who was a complete nervous wreck, so that helped a lot!


Finally we were able to leave, and he slept the whole way home.  Once we were back home, we noticed that one of his ears was draining blood, and the other was draining all this goo!!!  So, I called the dr quick, and was assured that this was normal!  whew!


After about 8 hours, he was feeling a bit better.  He was hungry, and was interested in trying popsicles.  He also ate some yogurt and rice, too!




Here are some pics I took during the healing process....



I counted, and with the ear drops, antibiotics, and pain meds, we gave him meds over 70 times over the span of a week....it was a LOT of pain control!!!

Glad it's behind us, and thankful to not have to do this again!!!
