Monday Fragments

There is a lot going on these days! Instead of a single topic, I just need to get myself a little organized by writing out stuff I've got going on these days. 1. Thursday, Teagan broke out with a raging ear infection. Our doctor was out of the office Thursday and Friday. Thursday evening, Teagan was in tears over the pain so I opted to take her to an urgent care office. In the course of 2 hours, we saw the doctor, went to Target, and got a 10 day supply of pink medicine (amoxicillin). She was doing much better by Friday- thanks to getting that dose in right away. 2. I stayed home on Friday and spent my time rearranging the kids' rooms. They now each have a lot more playspace and special things in their rooms to make them "theirs." Teagan has a reading area and an art spot. Zach has the basketball hoop in his room now. The kids have spent a lot of time playing in each other's rooms! 3. This past Saturday, I went a little further in my running journey. I went out very early in the morning and did a little extra warm up walking due to some soreness in my back. I started my run and just kept going until I knew I had to quit. I ran 2.3 miles! I'm very excited because I am fully confident that I will be running 3 miles any day now and can then focus on improving my pace before my first official 5K at the end of June! 4. Saturday was also Teagan's graduation from pre-K. Personally, the idea of pre-K graduation is a little silly. But I loved seeing all the kids together, all the teachers and aides together. I loved the little song and poem they did. I loved their little caps and pretty dresses. I loved the nice things that the school's owner/director had to say and the nice things the teachers had to say. Little Explorers is a special place and I'm so glad we found it. 5. I've got a lot of final touches for a very special project this week. I'm going to give it a special blog post later in the week... but... I am going to be giving the sermon at my church this Sunday. 6. It was very warm here yesterday- we got the swimsuits out, plugged in the sprinkler and had some water fun! Zach isn't a huge fan of the water but did enjoy filling buckets and watering the garden. Teagan, on the other hand, took great delight in running through the sprinkler, around the sprinkler. 7. Zach loves chocolate. And he sure looks adorable after enjoying a chocolate cupcake from The Blue Spatula! Photobucket

Busy week! I also think that having a graduation at the end of each grade is a little silly, but the kids are so cute, who cares!

I know you've explained it all BUT I still don't know how you do it!

Graduation - crazy...

I am so sorry about Teagan. Zoodle had 2 ear infections recently, both very painful. It's so hard to see them in so much pain. I'm really glad you got her in and that the pink stuff started working quickly.

Wow, doing the sermon? That is so exciting!

She looks darn cute in that graduation cap. And he looks mighty satisfied from his cupcake!

I hope Teagan is feeling herself by now, and that is excellent about the run; you must be so excited!

They're both adorable. She looks so proud :) Good thing you got pics. You should save these for her high school graduation slideshow.
