Oh, I also need to pick up a bicycle (in an even farther town) that is getting purtied up for Jamey so we can pretend to be "The Outdoorbergs" again, before the flaming heat of summer sends us running back to our computer chairs;** comfortably donning our original names " The Sedentarybergs".
Most importantly though, I need to check in on my dear young brother-in-law who is really suffering from a sudden illness of unknown origin. He is in the hospital with a high fever and much pain with what seemed at first like a reaction to a spider bite(recluse), but has mimicked the Malaria he has had in the past. My hubby's family spent many years in Papua New Guinea and are no strangers to tropical invaders. The blood tests have gone to big cities everywhere for analysis and we are extremely anxious to get a diagnosis and a treatment plan that works. I mention this more personal bit of info as a request for prayer for our brother. I know I have many wonderful praying friends and relatives who might join me in lifting J up to the Lord.
And I'll get on with my day leaving a picture or two from yesterdays goings on. I had my niece and nephews all day yesterday and they are an eyeful of deliciousness sitting on the couch here together. I got to pretend like a homeschooler(YES!) for a few hours while the boys did some bookwork and S.Q. played with playdough .
Then my friend Jenna and her two little button noses came over in the afternoon(I have NO photos of this portion of the day-boo) so the cousins and I ran over and grabbed Dandy early from school to get our PLAY ON!
AHHHHH! The sweetness of children interacting together always gets me right here(pointing at heart). Ok, enough sappy business and on with it!
The last picture is the homemade instrument Ratchet had to finish with his Dad last night to turn in this morn. It's some sort of Bongo/ Medicine bottle percussion combo. I hope they remembered to replace the meds with other things or Ratch'll look like a pusher! Have a good weekend ALL! XO
** Obviously, I have no idea how to use the semi-colon. I just put it in when my sentences get super long. Bahha! Sorry.
