Poor Aidan

He has decided he does not love "taking shots". He did get his neat bandages, but was walking like he was limping. After a huge chocolate chip pancake at IHOP he was feeling much better. Although when he woke up from his nap he was running a bit of a fever and saying his legs really hurt. Some tylenol and a carrot from the garden and he was raring to go.
I'm so glad he doesn't have to have shots again until his Kindergarden ones.

A little late with this update.

Well, Kaitlyn has long been back from Girl Scout camp and I have yet to update. She had a great time! She tried everything which is what I asked her to do. She even went on a canoe and had a great time. She came back with dirt and mosquito bites all over her, but was smiling and very happy. She looked even more grown up to me. People have asked if she missed us and the answer was "Not really" so I guess that means she had a lot of fun!
I was a little worried about her because the counselors don't stay in the cabin with them, but sleep outside in a tent. She said that it wasn't a problem, but they did get in trouble the first night because they kept turning on the light. She said they told the girls it looked like they were having a party...she thought that was too funny.
Each girl got to pick a name for themselves...they had Kitty, Sparrow, Pony, Boa and several others that I can't think of right off hand. Can you guess which one Kaitlyn chose? Pony of course, I thought that was pretty funny.

On Tuesday Kaitlyn started her first day of second grade. Their school building is under renovation, so they are going to another elementary school for the next 3 weeks. Although her teacher told me that they are worried that it will not be finished in that time frame. I don't know what they are going to do if they are not finished, the other school will be starting in Sept. and those teachers will need to get their rooms back and set up.
Kaitlyn's teacher seems nice. Kaitlyn likes her, I will know more about her in the next couple of weeks when we have open house. So far all the notes home have sounded pretty good. I wish I could go volunteer in the class room, but with Aidan being 3 there is just no way for me to do that. So I have to go with what Kaitlyn tells me.
And on a final note, I was worried about Friday's. Kaitlyn gets out of school at 1:50 and I have to start work at 2:15. I don't think I can physically make it back home in time to start work. Well, we found out that one of Kaitlyn's friends that was in her class at Edgemont is going to the same school and lives right up the street from us, she is not on the same track though, but we do overlap. So, I am picking up in the mornings and then Kaitlyn will ride home in the afternoons! I am so glad that it worked out, a total God- Thing!
Now I have to get Aidan ready to go to the Dr's. He is getting some shots today. Poor guy. It is our tradition to go out to lunch, breakfast, or treat after getting shots. I always feel so bad about the shots that I feel I need to make up for them with something fun.
I told Aidan that he needs to get a shot and told him I'll take him out to lunch wherever he wants. He said "I love taking shots" and "I can't wait to get a neat bandage". Yes, he calls band aids.. bandages, I don't know where he got that but I think it is pretty cute. I am sure he won't love taking a shot when he gets it, but I'm sure he will be a trooper.

"So Much...

I love your hair" is what Aidan told me while sitting on my lap today. The only problem is that I haven't had it cut since February and it shows! It has been driving me nuts lately. But Hey if my son " So Much Loves it" then I guess I shouldn't complain. LOL!

What a fun week!

Well, vacation is over, but it was a lot of fun! We started out by going to California to go to a friends wedding. It was such a fun time. I haven't seen Jessica in a few years, so it was wonderful to see her again. She looked beautiful in her dress.
Their reception was a lot of fun, and Aidan became the talk of the party with all of his dance moves. I still wish we had a video camera to get him dancing....He did everything from slow dancing with Hope (the cutest little girl ever!) to break dancing. Everyone was talking about him :0)
We had a good visit with my parents, brother, sister and her boyfriend on Sunday. And then we went to Balboa Island on Monday. The kids had a great time playing on the beach and riding the ferry out to the Island. The houses are beautiful out there. Aaron and I are talking about getting some people together and renting one for a week! I would seriously love living at the beach for a week!
We then had a few days of a break back at home cleaning and getting ready for MY slumber party. It is a fun weekend of scrapbooking, and I had about 6 girls and cutie Audrey to stay over at my house. It was so much fun meeting these people in real life. We all got along really well and had a great time making some fun projects. Theresa Marie, her mom, and Audrey got to stay with us an extra night and we took Aidan and Audrey for a walk around the neighborhood and just had a good time chatting late even though we were all ready for bed!
I made some wonderful friends this weekend, friends that I think I will have for a lifetime! And of course like the good scrapper that I am I didn't take any pictures from this event. Although there were so many people snapping pictures that I am sure I will end up with something.
Kaitlyn is off to girl scout camp. We miss her (esp. Aidan he keeps asking about her and checks her room every morning). I am sure she is having a great time. We will pick her up tomorrow, so I will update on how camp was then.

A BIG Thank you to Aunt Janet

This afternoon I went to get the mail and there was a box on the front porch. Aunt Janet made Kaitlyn and her doll Elizabeth these adorable hats and dresses. She also sent a lot of other dresses in the box as well, but this was Kaitlyn's favorite.
Kaitlyn loves dresses from Aunt Janet, and wears them all summer long because they are nice and cool.
We feel so blessed for a wonderful Aunt who takes the time to make such adorable outfits.
Thank you Aunt Janet!
