Where have I been!?

Time for a proper update from us, eh?

First up: I am adding "Play a game of paintball" to my Bucket List.

I have been scheduling LOTS of appointments for the kids and myself the last few weeks. I'm getting it all out of the way so this summer can be fun. Never mind the fact that I won't have Tricare after I get divorced. So I need to get all of MY stuff done ASAP!

The last Saturday in April all the ladies on my Mom's side of the family got together to celebrate birthdays. And four ladies being CANCER FREE!!!

And here is a GOOD picture of my sister and me! I don't even remember the last picture of us together!

Christian had a dentist appointment to get his extra tooth checked out. He was cleared for it being ok and not going to damage anything. He just needs to go back in a few years to get xrays to see if he also has an extra adult tooth...THAT might cause an issue.

He also had an appointment at the end of April with the school district. He had a speech evaluation done (just like what he did in Hawaii) but this time it has to be through the Sioux Falls schools since he would be actually going TO the school to get the therapy. I got a call this morning saying that he got into the program at the elementary school right down the street from the house. I have a meeting with them next week and I hope they tell me that he got into Head Start, too!! Fingers crossed on that one.

The night of April 30th, I went to the opening play of 'The Sound of Music' with my Mom, Mother-in-law and Sister-in-law. It was a good show and I'm glad we got to go together. I got there via car trunk.

This is Anne and myself at the play.

May 1st we all got together to celebrate Kerry's birthday. Christian was a ball of energy the whole time.

Then got shy when Kerry asked him to help blow out the candles.

May 7&8 I got to see two very dear friends of mine! Vicki, my best friend from college, and then Ashley, my best friend from high school! It was a fun weekend and I wish I could see them more often.

Christian got artistic on me. Rather on Sarah's head...

Next week there are some appointments with the school for Christian, appointments with the lawyer, and then hopefully my stuff regarding the GI Bill for school will be done. Makes my head spin!

The first weekend in June is the neighborhood rummage sale. I'm selling TONS of baby clothes from both kids so if you have anybody that needs some, come by! I'm also selling a ton of baby 'stuff', the swing, bumbo, nursing pillow, etc.

Here are just a few random's of the kids.

Pooped after playing.

Helping Kerry with the leaves.

Story time.

Christian on his new trike that he got for his birthday (a post I still have to do, by the way!!)

There you have it. I'll get Christian's birthday post up one of these days!!! I promise. Hold me to it, guys!

HAHA! No, but it was a thought! I made sure I could bail out if I needed to. :)

I'm glad you are getting things done! I hope he gets into Headstart as well. Sounds like you are doing good :)
