cell phone pics

It's funny. I take so many pics (I am sure everyone does) with my phone or an ipad or something. I was going through them tonight and and decided to add some. There is no special order. Just kind of what we have been up to the last 10 days or so. 

I debated adding one other picture but decided against it. It is a picture of Isaac right after he got a major owie. We were driving home one morning and I didn't realize he had taken his seat belt off before we pulled into the garage. Well I stepped on the brake and he went face first into the center counsel. His tooth went into his bottom lip and it was a bloody mess. I took a picture right away to get medical advise from Suzie and Dave. So that picture will stay on my phone.

South Dakota Children's Museum

There was no school on Friday for President's weekend so we headed to Brookings for the day. We all piled in my minivan- My mom, Suzie, Isaac, Anna, Sullivan, Hudson and me! We even had room for one more in that vehicle! 

We played and played and had so much fun. The kids did not want to leave almost 4 hours later. Wow. Sullivan even had a great time playing with the toys.

Ball Boy

Last week I sent our babysitter, Riley a message asking her when the next O'G basketball game is (her brother plays on the team). She replied with the information and then asked me if Isaac would like to be the ball boy. Ahh, yes! We have been getting very excited!

Tonight was the big night. He got to help with the balls during practice and go back in the locker room with the team before the game and at halftime. They also announced him over the loud speaker! He ran through the team and gave everyone high fives. Ahh, priceless! He had so much fun!

"party planner" on my resume

Whenever there is a party in Isaac's class I always make sure to volunteer to help. This year was no different. There was a little catch this year with the Valentine's party- the teacher asked me to plan it! Ah, I was a little nervous and didn't know what to do. I emailed my sister in law for some tips and tricks. She game me lots of ideas and I went with it. It actually went really well and I had fun. There were lots of parent helpers so the day went really slick. I set up 5 stations- 2 craft tables, two games and one cupcake decorating station. That was it. The kids were happy and had fun. Now that I have the first one out of the way I hope to help plan more down the road.

Snowy Sunday

My mom has been in town for a few weeks helping with kids, spending some time in Mitchell and attending some meetings. This morning she had us all over for breakfast. While we were there the snow started to really fall and the flakes were so big and beautiful! The kids had a blast.

friday fever

Today marks day number 3 of Isaac having a high fever. Yesterday he didn't get off the couch. That has never happened in my house in the history of me being a mom. We took him into the dr to check for strep and that came back negative. So we are just riding it out. We decided today is going to be a pajama day and Anna is in her third pair of pajamas. Ha. Isaac laid in my bed until noon and he finally got up and had some toast and some m & m's. He perked up for a little bit. I hope we are at the end of this and I hope and pray Anna doesn't get it. Time will tell.
