Last Week of February

It was a looonnggg last week of February. Just when I thought we had finally gotten over all the sickness, I got hit by an asthma flare up Monday morning, and couldn’t quite kick it without some prescription meds. The upside is that we are about to take care of our deductible for the year for prescription meds! I was still able to go to work all week, though…I just sounded like a seal barking much of the time.

Monday night we went to dinner at Mama Judy’s house. Jack’s class is learning about WWII because they are reading the book Number the Stars, so Mee Maw showed him a scrapbook with some war-time pictures of her daddy. Jack thought it was super cool. So cool, in fact, that Mama Judy came and shared it with his class on Thursday! He was super proud to have his MeeMaw come to his class.


Tuesday I took Jack for his 9 year old well check. He’s healthy…and still tiny. But he did grow 2 1/2 inches this year, which is more than average….he’s just still got a lot of catching up to do.



Thursday night we decided to go out to eat on a whim…it had been a long week…and a long day. We went to a Mexican restaurant in Pleasant View and then hit up Golly G’s…just because.


Last night we had a family movie night (we watched Rookie of the Year– I had forgotten how good that movie is!) and ate chicken quesadillas.

This morning we got up earlyish to take the kiddos to the indoor skate park for kids’ skate. When we got there, they told us they were hosting a competition, so they kids’ skate was outside only today. #momfail

BUT, Jack has always begged us to do the outside skate park there anyways, and they didn’t charge us. Jake and I just sat in the car right outside the fence, so it actually all worked out just fine. The kids had a blast, the sun was shining, and Jake and I just got to chill for a little while.


I’m ready for spring. Here’s to hoping that spring comes fast in March, and that we can officially kick all the sickness for good.
