I also got to go to Rylee's Valentine's party. After these two parties, I've determined I need to visit their classrooms more frequently. I got out of the habit after co-op preschool and C.J. being around. I just had conferences for both of them tonight - both doing great!! I couldn't be prouder of my two girls!
Can't forget the big man! He and I actually had our first trip to the ER earlier this month. We had a nasty influenza respiratory thing going around our house and inevitably he caught it. Only when he got it, it turned to croup. Well, I woke up Sunday morning 6:00 to him barking to breath and really labored. I freaked b/c last year when he got really sick I probably waited too long to take him in and felt like a tool when the doctor was grilling me about how sick he was. So I packed him in the freezing car and headed for the ER. I should have known better - I had croup as a kid. Cold is what you need. So by the time we got to the ER, the effects of our cold vehicle had greatly reduced his barking. I still took him in just to avoid the before mentioned grilling in case I was wrong, but they said "croup - has to run it's course. bring him in the cold if it gets bad again." So he's been a trooper while being sick and getting his first molars in. Nice combo - has made for sleepless nights. He's talking more and more. His most recent words have been "more" and "Ry-Ry"
So the above photo is of my cousin and me with American Idol top 36 Matt Giraud. I think I mentioned him in an earlier post, but anyway, we're phyched for another home town hero to add to our short list - Derek Jeter, ...the end. This picture and the night it was taken were so random I almost felt like I was back in college when most nights were decided by random moods (and maybe some influence of beverages). Anyway, we were at Bible Study and Steve had stayed home with all the sick kiddos. We got the itch to go out and watch Matt play at a local restaurant. Take a close look at above picture and you will soon realize I have become no more fashion savy than back in the day when a baggy flannel was my look. The fashionable MSU hoodie was paired with a well worn pair of jeans sporting a large hole in the knee. Hair undone. Nice. Anyway, I have no problem having a great time in spite of my appearances - the beauty of no shame in my game:) We had a blast, snuck our way right up front and had fun enjoying the piano. Too bad Matt didn't do so great tonight. Maybe Jeter will remain our solo claim to fame.
