Wesley's Giant Tonsils

Wessy had his tonsils  and adenoids out this morning and he did amazingly great.  We got to the surgery center a little  before 7 AM and he was in surgery by eight.

 The surgery took about 30 minutes    Wes came out of anesthesia just fine he acted a little groggy for the first five minutes or so but then he just kind of laid around and ate his slushy.  Never cried or seemed  upset,  not even when they removed his IV.
 About an hour later we were discharged and headed home.

He hasn't been as lazy as I thought he would be, he's acting completely normal so far today.  He's napping now so we'll see when he wakes up how his pain is but so far so good!  He's been eating and drinking normally and even had a few bites of my bologna sandwich.

Fingers crossed the next couple of weeks go this well.  Most of the blogs that I read said the first day isn't bad though and days three and four are pretty rough because the tonsil start to scab over. Sounds gross!

Erin's Dance Recital 2017

Erin had her dance recital yesterday and she did amazing!
I hadn't been able to see her dance in the studio ALL year due to work conflicts so the routine the girls did was a total surprise to me.
I think they did amazing!
This video if from the dress rehearsal the day before - the actual recital was about the same but I think just a bit better. I was SO proud!

Such a great performance.

With Sophie! So glad they have this experience together!

Evan is 8!!!

Oh my goodness I really can't believe it. 8!! Yesterday I was nervous about having my first baby and now that baby is 8! No way.
He really is the sweetest kid. Except maybe to his little sister :) He still doesn't mind a snuggle with me on the couch and still loves for me to sing him to sleep.
He's fun, energetic. funny, goofy, very techie, loves video games and watching people play video games, loves legos and of course soccer!
I love him so so much!
On his actual birthday I looked though pictures and I realized he's my least photographed child. What has happened! I quickly threw a polo shirt on him and went into the backyard. He's so funny he always wants to get the "no legs" picture - that is him jumping so it looks like he doesn't have any legs. It took a couple tries but we got it :) So goofy.

Such a big boy and so very hard to believe.

Summer Begins!

Ok, I guess I should catch up on the Spring first?
So Evan had soccer - we tried a new league this year and really liked it. It seemed a bit more competitive - either that or he got on a team that had at least a few players that cared about it. We still had some stand arounders.
Todd coached and although it was a struggle sometimes it ended up being a fun season.

We also graduated a kindergartner! Oh my Lord Erin was so cute at her graduation program - she was singing so loud to just Todd and I. I loved it so much.

We also said goodbye to our daycare of 8 years. They are closing and it was tough to say goodbye. They have been the only ones to ever watch my babies! I will miss them so much.
A&W started at a new preschool. They would've probably started at a 1 or 2 day a week preschool in the fall so a 5 day a week school seemed crazy at first to me but this school only does "school" from 9-11am and there's plenty of fun for them to do before and after. I really like it so far and the staff are great at communicating and I love seeing little updates from them throughout their day.
First day.
From their teacher. 
Face painting day.
So so far so good!
Evan and Erin are spending the summer at my friend Jan's and they are really enjoying it so far. Her kids are about the E's ages so it works out great.
She took them to the library for Captain Underpants day :)

Love seeing a peak into their day as well!

That brings us pretty up to date. Yesterday we had Evan's 8th(!) birthday and Erin dance recital. I think those will need their own post.
