|CET are only 3 months away from turning 8, yikes!|
How is it possible that I started this blog over 8 years ago and I'm still going!?!
On the Saturday before the last day of school the boys all came down with low grade fevers and were complaining that they didn't feel good. Over the next couple of days I treated them with tylenol or the like. They didn't seem too bad so come Monday morning, off to school they went. They were a little lack luster and slightly coughing but would always perk right up after getting some medicine. I thought is was just a cold (which is kind of ridiculous since it was mid June!). On Tuesday while at work I got an email from the teacher stating that 3 kids in their class had been diagnosed with walking pneumonia and if your kids were exhibiting it's symptoms to please not send them to school! I quickly googled this scary sounding sickness and all the symptoms matched up perfectly with the boys, uh oh! On the bright side if there is a pneumonia to get its walking pneumonia you want, it's the least of the evils and you can still function more or less (this is why they call it "walking" pneumonia). Long story short more than half the class got it and the boys hacked and coughed for over 3 weeks. Phil and I thought we were in the clear when after two weeks into the boys sickness and we still had not come down with anything. Well we spoke too soon because we both got to experience walking pneumonia. Let me let you, it's no regular cold! Now I understood what Eli meant when he'd tell me his chest would sting and why the boys even after two weeks still only wanted to lie around and not go out and play. My poor babies certainly felt worse than they looked : (
|Everyone would randomly fall asleep during the sickening.|
|On the last day of school not looking too great since they were about 1 week into WP.|
|As we wait in line I ask him "you didn't even want to look at the toys?" And his reply was "no, this is the only thing I want." Such a big kid purchase!|
|Mama Elda came! |
After a week in Portland we drove them to Cali to stay at grandma's house for the next two weeks.
|Granny cam captured the boys anticipating the next Mexico game in the Worldcup!|
|As promised, here are before and after pics of our living room |
(this is the listing picture so this is not our stuff, ha!)
|The kitchen before with laminate floor that look like wood, ugh!|
Ironically, the kitchen had fake wood and the rest of the house had real wood that was all covered up, haha!
|The oak floors refinished and now look brand new, they are absolutely gorgeous. Until now I never appreciated how beautiful oak is, look at all that beautiful grain variation!|
|Our new kitchen tile floor!|
|The living room after!|
All the natural light is wonderful but makes it very tricky to photograph.
|They always look so sweet when they're asleep : )|
