Anyway, the weekend was all about dads and kids spending time together enjoying God's creation and learning how God is "Mighty to Save".
After a two-hour drive, the happy campers were ready to stretch their legs and seek out their lodgings.
~Approximately 1-pound premature baby girl presents to EMS in towel with gasping respirations. Fire crew suctioned, dried, and cut the cord. Patient is cyanotic and limp, without palpable pulse. Patient transferred immediately to unit and ventilated. Chest compressions also started. Patient began grunting during ventilation and color improved from cyanotic to red. Upon arrival at ER patient has weak cry, is opening eyes, and moves all extremities.
There isn't much incentive to go outside when it's miserably hot and dry, but we thought yesterday's rain(hooray!) might entice a few bugs to venture out, making the perfect opportunity to try out our brand-new bug-huts.
First, assemble your bug-hunting team. (Coordinating outfits optional.)
Great googly-moogly, where did the summer go? It flew by in a flash of fun for sure, and it makes me realize that's how quickly my kids are growing up. Yesterday Joe started Kindergarten and I'm having anxiety that the school years are now just going to zip by and tomorrow my babies will be moving out of the nest. Not that I won't be a bit relieved to go back to doing laundry for 2 instead of 7 (it's a killer, I tell you), but man, I love these children and can't imagine my house not being filled to overflowing with them.
So how did our guy do on his first day? Great, of course. Joe has a huge advantage in that he went to Pre-K at the same school last year, so he's already familiar with the school, teachers, and "school culture" which is basically what a lot of these first days of Kindergarten are about. One funny thing that happened was in the morning after Billy dropped Joe off in the cafeteria with his class, Joe apparently opened up his lunch box and started eating his lunch! I'm sure he saw other kids eating breakfast and figured since he was in the cafeteria that's what he was supposed to do.
Here's Joe and Billy before heading off to school together. Billy began his 10th year of teaching yesterday, by the way, and this will be his second year teaching 3rd grade.
What has 7 heads, 7 tails, 14 ears, and 64 spots? Anyone?
The Moo-rrison Family Herd, that's what.
