A little of This. A little of That.

So many things going on at once around here, but nothing so noteworthy it warrants its own post so today is just a little of everything to fill you in. :)

Turner has his first "official" full day of school today. He was supposed to go yesterday, but suffered a strong asthma attack Sunday night that lasted all day Monday. We kept him home and gave him regular breathing treatments to break it. He's doing much better now and as I type this, Daddy just took him off to school for the day.

Carson, bless his he
art, was visited by that terrible croup monster at about 3:45 this morning, so Mama and Daddy were up with him...in the steam, in the cold, in the steam, in the cold...trying to get that darn virus to break (I swear if it's not one thing it's another!). Happy to say that around 5 am, he was sleeping soundly in his own bed again...and is STILL sleeping (at 8:00) though a very groggy mom and dad were up at 6:30! He's also fast approaching his 3rd birthday so all the appointments he has to get in before the early intervention program ends (for his slight speech delay) is happening fast and furiously this week. The sad thing about that is that it means this week - Friday to be exact - will be his last session with Miss Ann. Miss Ann is his speech therapist. She's the one that's been with us since Turner was 20 months old and she's so well loved here. It's going to be a happy but sad day when C phases out and no longer needs to see Miss Ann.

Ethan's big excitment is that flag football signups are going on and he gets to do that AND start Cub Scouts. I can hardly believe he's big enough to do these things. Every bit of me screams "WAIITTT!!! Quit growing up so FAST!!" but he's bouncing off the walls. He's so stinkin' excited about both of these activities he can't stand it. And they'll be so good for him. He's got energy and enthusiasm to burn, so he's ready!

And let's see....yesterday was a HUG
E birthday day for several people I love dearly.

It was a big one for her - the big 6-0! And as Ethan so innocently asked, "Is she going on 61, Mama?!"
HA!! All the DD's fault completely, Mom, I swear!

Also Happy Happy Happy Birthday to my Aunt Jane (and her twin sister Joan who passed away too long ago) and to my best friend from High School, Roy. I love you all. :)

And finally, it is official! Our Ask the Master's Book has NOW hit the shelves!! WaahoO!! I didn't think it would ever happen! And in honor of that, here's one of my layouts that you can find in there. Oh yeah, that's my boys...the "real" behind the scenes action, if you will! ;)

Great Layout Kel!
I missed buying the book by 5 secs at my LSS. I'll have to stalk it somewhere else.
It looks fab. I peeked at Lisa's the other day.

I hope Turner and Carson are feeling better, and you and your DH have caught up on some sleep!
One of my twins(almost 4), is going to start some speech therapy in the fall. I'm looking forward to some help in that area.

I love that layout and I can't wait to get my hands on the book, it sounds like it is going to be awesome!
