Need summer to slow down

Wow it has been a crazy few days!!! Let me just start the list

First: Will had to be admitted to the hospital on Wednesday of last week because he had a very bad reaction to penicillin. Oh yes, he had it before and been fine, but not this time. He was so pitiful, covered in hives from head to toe and swollen so much he looked chubby for the first time in his life. We only spent one night at the hospital, but several days of pain and severe itching were to come and we are finally on the mend after 5 long days. Will was a trooper, but boy it just took a lot out of me.

Second: A last minute baseball tournament for Jake. So many games, Thursday, Friday, 2 on
Saturday and 2 on Sunday. Baseball is fun, but not a great weekend for Scott to be coach.

Third: We added 2 extra kids (cousins) this
weekend. Oh they were good boys, but everything we thought we might do together was not possible. Not much fun to stay with the crazy Aunt Shelly this weekend. At least they were all pretty understanding. And just for the record Graham who is 13, can eat twice as much as Scott.

Fourth: This was the weekend I was doing a garage sale for someone else. I really did think of cancelling it, but I didn't have other weekend available until July. The sale went on and we still had a good sale.

Well, I think that might be all of it. What a week.

So here's the thing: Yes, our week was crazy and we ate out to much and I was very tired. I was just about to come undone and then today came and we are on the other side and on the other side was this. A much happier little boy and a much more relaxed Mom.
