Then it was naptime, and boy did Jared and I need that! We did skip out on baby dedication because Benaiah couldn't be there and we all needed the rest. I did take more anti-nauseua medicine last night and it's sleepy effects still affected me this afternoon. We got up just in time to get the kids to youth group and choir events. I stayed with Benaiah and Abishai at Gary and Leah's house because he was still not up to going anywhere. He's still dizzy, so he's not going to school tomorrow either. We're definitely not worried about him missing one day of school since he's doing so well. Abishai had fun feeding Benaiah some grapes and pumpkin spice (!!!) cheerios (!!) though. And he tried to get ba-ba to play with him, but Benaiah wasn't up for it. Yes, pumpkin spice cheerios and they were good! It wasn't too much pumpkin flavor actually. I couldn't stop eating them! Then I realized they probably have a ton of sugar in them. Whoops! Going back on the diet tomorrow and keeping a food journal for the new doctor because I'm assuming she'll want to see something about it.
That's about it. Justin had a great time at their nerf wars event. They provided the bullets and pizza and organized actual games to use the nerf guns in. They played for over 2 hrs! With nerf guns! 5th-8th graders! Keturah said that Miss Christy will take away the voices on the practice cd next week so they can just practice with the music. Yeah!
Back to normal routine tomorrow. And no sightings of Mr. Mouse tonight. I was thinking that we should have Socks, our dog, come up here for the day and sniff and scare the mice away. Maybe that's why we didn't see any critters besides normal bugs in Charlottetown and in Beech Grove, although we didn't have Socks for the first 8 years living there. Hm,...Socks would probably make friends with the things. Socks was very eager to play tonight and we do miss him a lot. But he's got a great place to stay in the meantime with Grandma and Grandpa.
|Someone took over Grandpa's chair!|
|And someone is big enough to sit at the island!|
|Aww, can't believe he's nearing 2 years old!|
|I don't know if the duck basket was already there or not, but now it is, complete with trucks.|
|Man-child fills a couch!|
|Again, big boy at the table!|
|We left a gift for Grandpa near his favorite chair. Abishai was also stacking the little trucks on the hitches of the big trucks. I don't think the other kids did that when they played with cars.|
|Yup, our teenager.|
|Swoosh!! goes the airplanes!|
|We could see the old "Bank One" tower in the distance as well as the Colts Stadium.|
