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!

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!!!

Finn's last day of school!

Because of Finn's upcoming surgery, his last day was a week before his classmates!  He didn't know the difference, and every time we told him it was his last day of school, he'd say "Me win..Ba-bla"!  Which, means that he won over Olivia....I guess it was a race to the last day of school? :)


He had a really good year!  He enjoyed going for the most part, and seemed to like it!


His teacher, Kristen!

His speech teacher, Teresa!

another teacher of his, Jackie

My little dude.... :)

Track and Field Day, Mothers Day, Liv's Teeth

Avery and I left the cities so we could make it to Liv's track and field day!  We missed all of her events, but we were at least able to see her there!  Daddy and Finn went and watched her all afternoon!


Her class made shirts and called themselves the "Awesome Squad".  LOVE her teacher!!! :) ha!



We had Daddy's birthday, our 17th Anniversary, and Mothers Day as well!


Nana Judy and Bapa Ron came down and we had a nice lunch at home!  I didn't take one picture!  darn!  These are the only pics I got before the end of the night!



Liv had another orthodontic consult as well, and I just find it so amazing that this is her mouth.  She's going to cost us so much $$$  :(
