Wow! It's been a while since I've been on here. So much has been going on...and just like that...summer's over. Today, the first day of school for Britton and Landon. Britton going to 5th grade and a new school; Landon going to 3rd grade and thinking he's grown. Easton will start preschool in Sept. I can't even talk about that yet.
It's been a good summer. We went camping at Buffalo National River, Chad officiated Arena football and got in the SEC as an official, swimming lessons, baseball season, swim meets, Baton Rouge, VBS, triathlon, Britt's birthday, Chad's birthday...I'll have to go back and look at some pics to remember everything. We've been busy and had a lot of fun.
I'm going into this coming school year with high hopes and expectations...both for my kids and myself. More organization, more quality time, more routines. This will be difficult for me since I'm more of a fly by the seat of my pants kind of person. I think for all of our sanity, we need a little more structure. Chad will be officiating football basically every weekend until Thanksgiving, both boys are playing soccer and I'm not certain what Britt will be doing yet, but I'm sure something that keeps us all on our toes. Schedules and routines will be good.
I plan on getting some pics posted soon of our summer adventures.
I hope everyone has a great school year!

Today Landon ran in his first 5K. He came in second. He did so awesome! It was only a fun run, so no times or anything and they had a choice of running a 1K or 5K....he went for the 5! They did one lap around the track and then around the neighborhood behind the high school. We sat in the bleachers and watched for him to come down the street and he looked so strong coming back into the stadium. Another lap around the track and across the finish line. No medals or trophies for this one....just a ribbon and goody bag. He was proud that he did it and we were proud that he did his best(not to mention getting 2nd place!). Great job, Land!!

Those who know me very well, know that I'm not much of a planner. I'll just decide we need to take a trip and a day or so later we're off. This week, for Spring Break, I decided to plan the whole week out. Monday, relax and rest up for a fun week, Tuesday...go to Jump Zone since it was supposed to rain, Wednesday...go hiking at Petit Jean and picnic, etc. Well Monday evening when Chad got home we decided to go walking at the Tucker Creek Walking Trail. A really nice Walk/Bike trail just a few minutes from the house that the kids enjoy going to. So off we went for our 3 mile walk. We had a great walk and were about 10 feet from returning to the car when Britton and Landon decided to take off running and race each other to the car. Britt was in a slight lead and Landon edged her way a little bit to slow her down and and sure enough....she slowed down...all the way down and fell. She was crying and I could tell she had scraped her knee pretty good and then she said, "I think I broke my arm". As soon as I looked at it, I knew. I was praying she was just holding it funny, but in my heart, I knew. Chad came over and said, "Everyone in the car we need to head to the ER." Off we went to the emergency room and she was crying a little, but nothing like I thought she would. We got checked in and they asked her about her pain...1 on a scale of 1-10. Not much pain, but they gave her a tiny bit of Morphine anyway. The orthopedic doctor finally got there and they gave her some "twilight sedation" and set her arm back in place. She broke the radial bone right at the wrist. Thankfully it was only that one bone and he feels like it should heal just fine. He put her arm in a splint and she'll wear that for 10 days and then she'll go in and have a cast put on for 6-8 weeks. She did fantastic through the whole process. A little nervous, but not once did she cry or get upset. It took a long time for her to wake up from the sedation, so the boys kept talking to her to make her say goofy stuff, but other than that, it went as smooth as possible.
Swim team will be on hold for the next couple of months, as well as playing on the trampoline, but she is already wanting to go and do.
I think I'll just go back to my spur of the moment planning and not "plan ahead". The plan this week....hang out at home and relax and heal and thank God for all that he has done for us..it could have been so much worse.

It's been busy around here. Not much time in the day to update. Fridays are our "down" days. No practices or games or homework to have to hurry and get done. It's our day to just relax.
Britton is still swimming. She hasn't had a meet in about a month and I think she is just enjoying going to practice a couple times a week. She has a meet this weekend in LR, so I'll update on how she did next week. Landon has had a great basketball season. He has made major improvements and really gotten a lot more aggressive. Tournament starts tonight and and will end next week. Although it's been a great season, I'm ready to move on to the next sport. Spring soccer started last week and he had his first game last Sat. He scored 4 and his team won, so he was pleased. Baseball season will start in a few weeks and he is already excited about that. Easton will start soccer in a couple of weeks and he can't wait. I was really hoping for tball for Easton, but it appears that they are very strict about being 5 before they start. He won't be 5 until next March, so I guess he can wait another year. Chad will be heading to his Arena football clinic this weekend and then the season will start at the end of March. I have resigned myself to not being able to sleep in on a Sat. until at least the end of July. That's ok though. We are all healthy and happy and strong and having a great time. What more can you ask for?
