Good morning Ladies and welcome to the first day of May!! It is the feast day of St. Joseph the worker. I am hoping for a really spring like and sunny May after a pretty wet April which was great for the growth of all the pretty flowers ! Last weekend we even had snow flurries !
Last Saturday our daughter had volleyball again I did not go with her this time , again . They left at 7am and were gone nearly 12 hours. They played 6 games and placed 2nd in the tournament! They went out to eat on the way home a s a special treat! I went with our son to first holy communion rehearsal in the morning. He will receive the sacrament tomorrow . It will be so nice watching all the boys in their suits and the girls in their white communion dresses!! Later on Saturday the boys played with their friends Easton and Amelia. Their parents came over for a bonfire after dark as they were picking the kids up. We had a little adult playdate too, why not!!
On Sunday we went to Church for the first time in person since covid came in. It was nice to get back after all this time. All the distancing protocols were adhered to and there were no issues. Soon after church we went on a 90 minute drive to see the kids Great Grandpa at a local restaurant to him. It was the first time he was able to get out of his assisted living house also since covid. The last time we got to see him was October for his wife’s funeral. My Father-in-law and his sister had been able to see him though. We are looking forward to seeing him more !!
On Monday our 8year old woke up at 4am really distressed , having a barky cough and throwing up a little . I took him to the ER immediately . On the way there he started to feel a bit better. They diagnosed him with croup and gave him a steroid injection to fight it. He was better later in the day .
On Tuesday Baseball and softball was cancelled due to rain . Wednesday was a much better day. I was able to get my covid shot , it went smooth and no side effects! Thursday there was softball and baseball . Our son played in his first scrimmage and got 2 hits!
Shout out !
congratulations to my brother-in-law and his wife on the birth of their first child , a healthy baby boy born last Saturday night called Stanley!! We are excited to meet him and are likely to do so at a family get together today! They are 75% certain they will be able to attend it!! But with a newborn there will not be any pressure on them .
Also a shoutout to my blogging friend Steph and Dan who are expecting twins in November!!
