Well here we are a few minutes before Midnight and it looks like Mark and I will be pulling an all-nighter. Tomorrow we leave for our much anticipated trip to Washington DC and North Carolina. We are so excited to see all of the fun sights and most of all Ky, Haley, Olivia, Mitch, Ali, Cairo, Levi, and Cameron. Unfortunately, before we leave the laundry needs to be put away, floors scrubbed and one more bathroom cleaned.
Our kids were so excited tonight that we had a hard time getting them to go to bed. Their luck hasn't been the best the past 2 weeks, so we are hoping this trip breaks that spell. Believe it or not, but in a one week period, McCall fell at school (really funny story) landed on her head and ended up in the ER with a minor concussion. The next day Gracie came down with Strep Throat. Two days later Bayden chipped his front tooth and we have no idea where or how he did it. The following day he had a terrible Asthma attack and a bad case of croup, so again we had to call our doctor after hours and run in for some steroids. Later that night Parker sliced his two front teeth in half jumping on the trampoline and we ended up having the dentist meet us at his office late on Saturday night to try and fix them as best he could. Two days later he fell again on the trampoline (I know you think we should get rid of it, but they love to jump) and sliced his head open. Finally, Bayden got another sinus infection. I'm sure our pediatrician wanted had thoughts of reporting me to CPS, but she knows us too well.
On a positive note however, we were told last Monday he would need 8 root canals and last Friday we found out he will probably only need two!!! I've never thought I would be elated by the fact that my child only needs two root canals! Seriously though, I almost hugged then Endotontis on Friday when he told me. Parker is a champ, he never even cried when it happened or when he has had to get fillings put on the teeth twice. Needless to say we are really looking forward to a fun and relaxing time away.
Well I better run I need to finish up a few last minute details for Teacher Appreciation week and find a few more things to keep everyone entertained during our long flight. Mom, as promised I will try and post some pictures throughout our trip. Hopefully I'll have time, but we may be too busy just having fun!
