The past month has seemed to be a bit crazy at our house! I feel like I start every post like that!! hahaha
Anyway, I wanted to be sure and update everyone on what has been going on. I don't want to miss anything or leave anyone out!!!!
While Rick and I were on our cruise, Grandma (and Grandpa) were busy, busy at home with the kids. The boys had their Blue and Gold Banquet for scouts. This was Cody's very first Pack Meeting as a Wolf!!! They were sure to welcome him with a yummy goodie!! The boys were asked to make a cake! Grandma and the boys came up with an awesome cake!!!! I was just sad I wasn't there to taste it. Chase was able to earn a few pins at that meeting. He has been working really hard and will have his Webelos Award very soon.
Paige had a recognition night that very same night for her AWESOME grades!!! She is on the honor roll. Grandma let Grandpa take the boys to scouts and Grandma spent the evening with Paige. We are so proud of her. She works so hard, pushes herself, and does her very best in all her classes!!! Way to go Paige!!!!Paige also had a really cool Young Womens activity while we were gone. They were asked to research and dress up like someone in the past that made a difference. Paige chose Sacajawea. Paige looked pretty darn cute!!!!
At our most recent pack meeting on the 24th of March, Cody was able to receive his Bobcat award!! He was so funny!! All day he was sure to let me know that as soon as his face was done being painted, he was going straight into the bathroom to wash it off! Once he got it on, I don't think he thought it was so bad! He was so cute and very careful when pinning on my "mothers pin."We are so proud of you buddy!!! Congratulations on the first of many awards to come!!Chase earned his Religious Square Knot!!! One step closer to that Webelos Award!!! Way to go buddy!!! The activity for the night was to shoot off rockets the webelos had made. Oh my gosh....it was awesome! I had no idea they would go so high. The boys loved it and could have been entertained for hours!!!I love that the boys are in scouts together now! (atleast for a little while).!!!
UNEXPECTED PHONE CALL!!!!
On that very same day - I was at lunch with some girlfriends and got a phone call. Mother of the Year, just rejected the call. When I was done with lunch I had a feeling I should probably call that number back just to see who it was. Well, once I heard a voice on the other line and asked who it was she said, "This is the trainer from McKinney Boyd High School." My heart stopped. She proceeded to tell me that Jordan had been hit in the face with a softball at practice. My first thought was....."are her teeth okay!!!!" The trainer let me know she had gotten hit in the nose! I immediately headed for the school and when I walked into the trainers office, there I saw poor Jordan - holding a bloody gauze pad, with dried blood all over her face and hands, and down her arms. WOW!!! was my first thought!!!! (actually - my first thought was - I have to get a picture of this!!!) I held back and didn't take one. We got her home, cleaned her up and then she let me take a picture!!!What a trooper - she was in so much pain and it was PRETTY swollen!!!We weren't sure what the verdict was.... we just went to the doctor two days ago and had xrays done. She did crack her nose and messed up her sinus's. BUT she is on medication and the good news is that she doesn't need surgery!!!! And the even better knews is that her doctor cleared her to play softball again.....WITH CAUTION!!! So she is back out in the field - but it may be awhile before she is running bases again.
Another highlight for Jordan is that she FINALLY got her drivers license!!!She is thrilled, but her dad and I are about to have a nervous breakdown!!! We just can't seem to let her go out on her own!!!! We have driven with her, sat in the back seat, and even done the unthinkable and let her drive, while we followed her!!! Just to make sure she was safe! I know the day is coming VERY soon that she will take off and go everywhere by herself.....ahhhhhhhhh!!! We are not ready for that!!!!
OUR SWEET MAX!
What about Max???? Max is doing great!!! What a sweet dog!! We love him to pieces...he is so good! We finally had him neutered...and Paige is just babying him like there is no tomorrow!! Max is loving it!!! So here is our sweet Max. According the the boys...."He's not a man anymore!!!!"
