A week behind

Last week was so busy that I hardly had time to catch my breath! A few of the highlights:

We went to the McCamy (Billy's paternal grandmother's side of the family) annual Decoration Day. We had lunch, then placed flowers at the family cemetery, and then had dessert at an old log cabin on the family property. There is a gentleman that is using the property as a hunting camp, so there are always interesting things for the kids to see.

Like petting a real raccoon...

On such a soggy Sunday, it wasn't too difficult for the "big" kids to find a puddle to splash in. They all had to ride home in their underwear. :)
Rebecca met her 7th(?) cousin for the first time and they really hit it off.

Last Monday was the preschool's field day. There were sack races, relay races, an inflatable bouncy and slide, a balloon artist, bubbles, hula hoops, and a painting craft. The boys had a blast, but Vivian was feeling a little under the weather. She had a low-grade fever when we got home, and I quickly followed. (No, we didn't have the swine flu!)

Waiting for the next event!

Lots of bubbles to be made.

Vivian taking a stab at the sack races. The two- and three-year-olds weren't too great at this event.

Billy took off from work on Tuesday because I was sick. He got to take Henry, William, and Vivian to the dentist. (All the kids and I took Rebecca the week before. What a disaster that was!)

When you don't feel so great, you'll let your kids play with anything! Seriously, Vivian got two "real" make-up sets for her birthday! Thanks, Nannie and Leah!

I met with Rebecca's teachers to discuss her IEP. It was great to sit and listen to them talk about how much progress she is making. I like to be optimistic, so it is refreshing to hear! Rebecca and Vivian also had their regular check-ups at the pediatrician last week. Rebecca had gained 10 pounds in one year! In 19 months, that child has gone from a size 4 to a size 7!! She's playing catch-up in more ways than one!

Looks like all the kids had a great time.

Love the picture of Miss Vivian and her makeup.

Just think four females wearing makeup in the same house. Ya"ll will be fighting over those mirrors before too long. :)
