sunday: 68* equals slip & slide weather for these northwesterner kids. the dog was hilarious. he kept trying to bite the water that was spraying.
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.
also monday: it seems that bonez is (mistakenly) under the impression that he is a lap dog…
tuesday: big test for the new dog… will he pass the crusty casserole dish test?
wednesday: our dominos remodeled and put in this awesome chalkboard wall.
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?”
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.
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.”
