End Of School

We are starting our summer break off to a good start. The boys behavior is doing well. I had increased their medicines just a little the last time I went to the doctor. Eddie was on a field trip to Tunica to ride the river boat and visit the museum their, so he was not able to go to the doctor with Devin and me. Luckily, his doctor was able to prescribe his medicines then. I just did not want him to miss the last school field trip that he had for the year. I was willing to reschedule his appointment if needed. Glad that I did not have to do that, because I probably would have had to wait more than a month to get him back in.

I allowed both of them to stay home on the last day of school since it was only a half of a day, and they were not required to go. I knew that they needed a break from school, so I let them stay home. They both had a Splash Bath at their schools in the days before they were to get out. They enjoyed the water slide very much. Devin came home that day with a huge scrape on his elbow. He had said that someone had pushed him down on the concrete. It is healing, and does not seem to bother him to much.

We are enjoying the park here at home quite a bit. We have new swings to swing in and everything has been painted so it looks really great out there now. It is very colorful as well. It was about time that they had did something with the park. The swings were broke due to the older kids tearing everything up, and now they have been replaced with new one. Once we get moved, we will have the park as our backyard, so they will be able to go and play easier since I will not actually have to leave the house for them to play. If I need something from inside, then I will not have to drag them all the way home to get what was needed. It is also a lot shadier, so the house will stay a little cooler this summer. The house is layed out exactly the same as the one that we have now, except for maybe the bathroom, closets, and kitchen. I am hoping for a double sink this time to make dish washing a lot easier. The one that I have now is a single sink which is a lot more difficult to use and causing me to use more soap since I have to let the water out a little at a time just to get them rinsed.

The boys did very well in school this year. Eddie received the A/B honor roll for the year and also the language arts award. Devin did not come home with awards like Eddie did this year, but he was the school's champion a few times, and had reading awards as well. His teacher was not really impressed with his handwriting, so maybe that is why he did not get anything for the end of the year. I do not know. He did very well, and we are proud of them both for working very hard. They will make great second and fourth graders next year.

Well, I guess that I will get going and start something to eat for them. They are urging me to get off of here and get something up for dinner. Hope that you all have had a wonderful day, and I will see you all later.

Family Updates For May 2010

From the looks of it, I have not written over here in the last month. I guess that I just do not have much to say or either I am just trying to keep up with the pace of life. I have been dealing with an earache for a couple of weeks now. It had went away for about a week, but it looks like it is wanting to act up again. I have also had issues with my shoulder. My joints do not work very well and they tend to grind together. It feels like it needs to be popped, but I have not been able to get it to. I woke up this morning from laying on the shoulder all night, and I could barely move it without it hurting. It does not hurt all of the time, just mostly when I have to stretch it to the limit. I just feel like my joints are not as lubricated as they should be, yet again it could be anything from arthritis to food allergies. I can stay away from the peanuts easily, but the corn and soybean oil is difficult, especially when those around you do not have a clue. I do not have deadly reactions to the foods, but I do believe that it is the cause of most of my pain that I do have. I have read that food allergies can mimic arthritis, which may be my problem. Who knows. Allergies can do a number of things to your body so get tested for them and follow the ones that do cause your problems. I never knew that I had food allergies, until I began to feel terrible everyday. I had suggested it to my doctor and luckily I was able to have the tests done. I was shocked to learn my results.

In other news from around here, Devin lost one of his front big teeth yesterday. It was so loose that I basically had to pull it out for him. He wanted apples to help get it out, so we bought him some. They are a bit sour, so he did not like them to well. He was scared for me to pull it as he thought that it would hurt. After I finally got him in my lap, I leaned him back a little grabbed and gave it a little tug. Before he knew it, it was out. He was so proud that it was out and not bothering him anymore. We were all enjoying the missing spot in his mouth, and took a few pictures of it. We had film left over from graduation so we used a few pictures on the camera. We are in the process of re-buying a battery charger for my digital camera, so it is currently out of order.

This is the last week of school for the boys, and they are in dire need of a vacation from school. They will be enjoying the summer this year. We plan to go to moms until we are able to move into out new apartment just two doors down. It could take us up to a month before we are able to move back in due to transfers of bills and actually being able to afford the cost of moving. We are having to store our things somewhere, and it seems that mom's garage will be the place where we let our stuff sit. We do not see mom much, so I guess that we will get plenty of each other next month. I did not tell her how long we were planning to be there, so I guess she is in for a surprise. When I was there about a week ago, I told her that it would probably be a couple of days. Later on my husband decides to tell me that it could be up to three weeks or so. What a difference, and I had no idea it would be that long. Guess that Ryan and mom will get us for each of their birthdays. Ryan has his on the 10th of June, and mom's is on the 29th.

By the way, my dad and his wife is having their wedding anniversary in June as well. So happy anniversary to them too. Love you dad. Hope that you both have a wonderful day on your special day.

Well, I guess that I will get going. Just thought that I would let you know what is going on around here. My ear is not feeling to great right now, so I guess that I will go rest for a little while. I need to clean up the house a little as well. So much to do and I just do not feel like doing anything. I did not sleep well last night due to dreams that really disturbed me. I knew that I was asleep, but I was also trying to wake myself up to make it stop. I had let out a gasp when one part got scary, but I do not think that anyone heard me. Eddie was up at that time, and I did not hear him say anything about it this morning so maybe he did not hear it. I had taken a few deep breaths and layed back down hoping that the dream would not continue. Sometimes they will, but I was able to dream about something different that was not so scary.

Thanks for visiting!!
