Last week was super busy, but fun. Tuesday we met one of our friends from when we lived in Birmingham. Her husband was in medical school with Jeb. He couldn’t come with us because he had boards the next day.
Here are the kids ages…Caden, 6, Miller, 5, John Luke , 4, Tucker, 3, Ella Kate, 2, and Mallie, 2. It was a fun lunch. We miss them! They’re headed to New Mexico for a year long fellowship. We’re hoping to head out there to go skiing at some point.
Before we headed to lunch we had our normal therapy session. It went well, but it’s always hard when all 5 of us are there. :) We had group therapy the next day. I got a lot of ideas for some new things to do in home therapy with EK (drawing boo boos on the babies and then naming body parts for her to put band aids on, making experience books, and some new books to read).
I had a lot of help getting ready before we left for therapy. Aren’t they precious?
Wednesday night JL decided he wanted to sleep in EK’s room, and Caden thought it would be a good idea as well. They did really well. Everyone slept all night, and when they got up the next morning they didn’t wake each other up…they came in one at a time as they woke up. I guess it will be a fun treat for them every now and then. :)
Thursday we took the kids to Huntsville. We had to get ready for EK’s party on Saturday, we had family coming in Friday night, and we had our 1st 5K Saturday morning….BUSY! Thursday afternoon Jeb performed a little eye “surgery” on me. I had/have 3 glands on my eyelids that were stopped up. They had formed these crystalized things in them and they HURT. Jeb slit all 3 of them with a scalpel. It did. not. feel. good. I got the hard thing out of one of them, but I think he’s going to have to work on the other 2 some more. Still using topical antibiotics and and anti-inflammatory drop in that eye.
Saturday we ran our 1st 5K! It was great! Jeb placed 1st in his age group, and 11th overall. I placed 3rd in my age group, and 21st overall (out of 66). I’m trying to get him to commit to training for the half marathon for me, but he hasn’t yet.
We had various family members filing in all day Saturday in preparation for our sweet girls party Saturday night. That’s a post in itself though. The 4 boys had so much fun together. EK enjoyed having extra kids around too, but she was in bed for this picture. If you look at the clock you can see it was almost 10pm! We had a lot of late nights. Its tough to go to bed when they’re having a blast with their cousins.
