project life 2014: week 21

sunday: 68* equals slip & slide weather for these northwesterner kids. the dog was hilarious. he kept trying to bite the water that was spraying.065
monday: layla had her appointment with the rheumatologist at children’s. after an exam, labs, x-rays, and lots of questions, it looks like a preliminary diagnosis of Juvenile Idiopathic Arthritis. now we wait for results and then make a plan for how to best treat it and prevent long-term damage.068
also monday: it seems that bonez is (mistakenly) under the impression that he is a lap dog…076
tuesday: big test for the new dog… will he pass the crusty casserole dish test?078
wednesday: our dominos remodeled and put in this awesome chalkboard wall. 083
thursday: I have no idea why, but micah is suddenly planning his birthday party. he has been making all of these adorable decorations. “it’s my birthday today. arent you excited?”085
saturday: “therapy” session for toby. I put the dog outside and forced him to come downstairs. he lasted about 5 minutes on my lap before running away.090
and some extras:
1. yes, bonez passed the test. in fact, I think he did a better job than the labs!
2. the cute robot they made.
3. long saturday walk on the trail… “it’s too far.” “my feet are going to fall off.”

project life 2014: week 18

sunday: a tradition dating back to my childhood. there’s an office park near our church that is (for lack of a better way to put it) built in the middle of a swamp. wetlands, may be a little classier. at any rate, there’s a slough surrounding it, and a lot of the parking lots are frequently flooded. BUT, it makes it a popular place for ducks and geese, and in the spring, you can always find babies! so after church, we went ‘sunday driving’ through the office park in search of ducklings, and were not disappointed. 035

also sunday: family outing to go mini-golfing. we had a blast. we all (well, maybe not dave and shane) totally sucked at it, but it was still fun. 2014-07-224

tuesday: school skate night at skate king. 2014-07-226

wednesday: rare spring heat wave meant we had to get out the sprinkler!128 (2)

also wednesday: toby, being a real cat. he was rolling around in the grass like crazy.157 (2)

friday: reading elephant and piggie books before school.173

saturday: my back’s out. more comfortable on the floor. which is messy. because my back is out.175

couple of skinnies:

1) costume day!!!!

2) april’s date night. we went out for mexican and I got the HUGEST margarita!
