This summer, so far, has been quite different from our normal summers. This summer, I feel like we’re old people because it seems like all we do is go to doctor appointments and go for testing! Tomorrow, John will undergo a heart catheterization which will hopefully show exactly where his blockage is and hopefully get him fixed up and back to normal 🙂 He’s had a rough summer so far.
Last Saturday we went to Megan’s birthday party. (Her birthday is actually today!) Her parties have changed over the years! It used to be that most of the attendees were adult relatives and a few children. Now it’s reversed – grandparents, a couple uncles and an aunt, and lots of kids attended. Amy had several “Minute to Win It” type games that the kids enjoyed playing. The kids got to frost their own cupcakes before they ate them,
We’ve enjoyed going to Peyton’s baseball games and liked seeing how much he’s improved since last summer. He does a good job catching fly balls, hits the ball very well, and has hit several triples and at least one home run. Since his season is finished, we went to Jeremy’s softball game Monday night and watched his acrobatics! Something is wrong with third base and several people tripped or slid when they hit it. Jeremy pretty much did somersaults when he hit it! He couldn’t seem to hold on to the ball as well as I thought he could but John reminded me that Jeremy’s fingers were burnt. He had an accident at work and had electricity run through his body.
Sometime in the next week, our family will be increasing with the birth of our newest grandchild. I’ve been busy knitting items for him or her and am really anxious to meet her or him!!! This is a nursing cocoon for Jess and her baby 🙂
