Last day of forever

Today is the last day of kindergarten and first grade for the kids. I'm torn between being excited they are out and knowing they are out for 3 months!!! Bah! They have grown so much in kindergarten and first with their spelling and they're reading and their communication and their people skills . They had the best teachers this year! 

We are leaving town next week, me and kids for the summer. We will be spending it in the lovely cool Canada and escape the heat! Libby is bummed I am leaving for so long but I want to go keep my momma company for the summer. So the kids are really excited for that- except it is in the 60's during he day!! Bah, that's freezing! 

We have been hanging out with a bunch of friends before we leave town so we hit up a rough riding game with the Jordan's, and then we went to a World Cup practice game between El Salvador and Ivory Coast. It was awesome! 

Mom came knot town after another trip to North Carolina first. It was so nice to have her here as it always is, especially after an unexpected appendectomy in North Carolina just days before. Ya, Brian caught us in our classic zone out in Sunday school. Haha I thought this was hilarious. 
I am pretty sure Courtney is growing... Or someone needs to explain all the tears and sadness that have been lingering around her every day for a while. She is a 3 year old who talks a mile a minute and wears 5t clothing. She is so big and so grown up! Good thing baby is coming soon to bring that baby stuff back to our lives. 
Speaking of baby, I do have to share the thoughts that I have had this time around. When I first found out, I was not expecting it at all. We were done at 3 and  so to pull another child into the mix got me all messed up! It has taken me a long time to be able to even talk about it and now I am finally starting to get excited by it! Especially after we just found out it is a baby girl! We were hoping for a boy for boots to have a little buddy and to have less drama in the house, but we make great girls I guess!! Boots bawled when I told the kids it is a girl, I just knelt down and hugged him while he cried. It was so sad! 
We have been hitting up the pools almost every day, especially since swim lessons are over. Nat and boots worked in strokes and picked them up pretty good, well Natalie did- boots hahaha he was a little slower to pick it up! Courtney had made a few small leaps but it wasn't until we worked on it after lessons were over that she started to swim under water by herself and she is a little fish! 

Troy Melia, dan and Robyn are here for a few weeks visiting. Dan is studying for an exam here so they all came to hang out and it had been fun to get to know these sweet kiddos! They get along great with Natalie and boots. They spent the other day in the back field behind our house for hours and hours. It was 90 degrees out but they were hunting for bones and jewels and couldn't be stopped! 

Yesterday the kids had their end I year parties at school and boots had really bonded with this little girl Lani. They a re total bff's. He asked every day to have a sleep over, it's really cute. She has 2 sisters who are also in kindergarten and then a brother in 1st and he is in Natalie's class. They all love each other so much and the life so close! Love those Fiefias! 

Lastly last night I had a huge huge scare, I mean I have had some scares in my adult life- stitches, broken bones, sick kids, watched car accidents and other scary times... But I have never been so scared as I was last night. Brian had a mole removed yesterday and all went well: we then had some company come to spend the night and so we were up late chatting with them. Finally at 130 he went in to shower after a very short jog. During he shower he asked me I get his some orange juice cause he want feeling well. He had been bleeding from the mole removal site and wanted me to clean it for him. 
It took me a minute or so to go get it and when I came back in I saw his foot up on he side of the shower and started to chuckle "what are you doing Brian!" Hen noticed no response and noticed he was just layin still. I ran over and opened the door to find him jammed in the bottom of the small square shower and his face was as white and almost see through as anything I have ever seen. His eyes were open was he was completely unresponsive. Oh my gosh! I was so scared at This point. It took me about a minute to wake him up and then another minute to get him to see me and know what was going on. After that I got him bandaged up and out of the shower. Another 5 minutes later with a bunch of orange juice and his coloring was back. Ahhh! I found a large bump that was almost bleeding out in the back if his head where he had hit his head. 
Anyway, he is fine now but we did call sean at 230 am to come over and check him. I was sure he had a concussion of something. He honestly looked dead and it was really really scary. Lots of prayers last night and he is sleeping it off. Ahhh! Don't ever do that to me again Brian. I'm so glad he is ok.

WHOA WHOOOOOA WHOOOOOOOA...have I been living in a freaking cave!? YOU'RE PREGNANT!?? Okay, maybe I should be pregnant too so I can get over my fear of having more kids! hahaha! So exciting!!!!! I'm with ya, I am a mama who needs more of an age gap in my kids. Some women LOVE having their kids close together in age, but I know Ellie and our #3 will be at least 3-4 years apart. I just can't handle the constant needs and craziness.

JENI! I am thrilled for you. Your belly is adorbs. The little time I spent with you last summer at my Grandma's house and your blog updates, I can say without an doubt that you are such an amazing mother. You need to give yourself more credit than you do. We ALL have struggles. Truth? I hate being touched by my kids. Okay, I love snuggles, and I love their little hands, but when I'm having a moment on the couch, I do not want any hands touching me. By hour 11 during the day of being together, mama needs some mama time ya know? I applaud women that can have large families because I just don't think I'm one of them. I've dealt with a lot of anxiety too of trying to control it all and have everything perfect. Thankfully, lots of it has eased since Ryan finished law school, but dang it gets scary sometimes not being in control of your emotions and then taking it out on your kids.

I'm excited to see your belly grow and all your baby preparations. Hopefully you can bum off some of Libby's old baby gear!
