How I got the flu in such awesome weather is beyond me! But boy did I ever have it! And I’m so bummed of the timing of this illness as well. Because my friend Gretchen had her baby girl on Wednesday…the tremendous event of which I was suppose to photograph for them! (Ugh!) And I’m missing my support group meeting tonight where there will be a representative from Make A Wish and the ever-helpful Siri Baland from Sutter Memorial’s Child Life program. Two great things that I missed being present for this week.
However, I was present (sort of) to witness my husband coming to my rescue and calling in sick to take care of the boys for the day on Tuesday. He was able to get them dressed, fed, Luke off to school, get my oil changed in the car, purchase weed killer and fertilizer and then actually USE it on the lawns, bought me a book to read, picked up Luke, feed them again and then put them down for a nap. After just the morning “chores” he promptly came into the bedroom and put his hands down on the footboard of our bed and said he would never be able to be a stay-at-home parent because…”he’s going crazy!”

Bring on Spring! We had a fabulous Easter Day yesterday. It started with Luke participating in the children’s Easter worship concert at our church, SouthPort Community Church. This was his first time in front of everyone and he did so well! He even had a solo reading line that he needed to memorize…"Hosannah! To the son of David!" He was so cute and was so proud of himself, as were we. Then we headed off to a local park. We bar-b-que’d, hunted for eggs and played baseball. And it was HOT! Logan’s cheeks are a nice shade of pink now, even with the sunscreen. I hope everyone else enjoyed their day as much as we did!

I got the chance to watch the cutest “little miss” in the whole world this weekend! My niece Macie, turned one this Saturday and we were blessed with her first sleep-over that night, while her mommy and daddy ran their booth at the Sacramento Hair Show. She is the most easy-going “woman” I’ve ever met!! She’s just as content to sit on your lap and play patty-cake as she is to sit on the floor with her big-boy cousins and play trucks. We love her to pieces!
Okay, so hopefully I've figured this out and I should be up and running now. I'm so computer-challenged, it's not even funny! Luke even knows more about navigating this thing than I do and he's only 4 for pete's sake! I received a friendly comment from a friend today (hi Valerie!) that if she had to read about last year's Labor Day Weekend again, she'd scream. So this post's for you Valerie!
