OK sooooo

We did not have a huge weekend planned….it turned out more exciting then expected..

Saturday, we were up bright and early for Rocket launch for Spencer and the scouts. Launching is at the fair grounds.  It is a fun event that we love to go and watch…the boys get to launch their rockets twice.  It is fun to watch the excitement on their faces as the rocket they built engine and all, launch going quite high in the sky. Then they chase them down and bring them back for another launch. It was windy on Saturday some of the rockets went about a half mile away…immediately following the launch we had baseball..we missed the first inning but made it for the next two. Griffin and I sat under a tree out in the outfield….he can run till his hearts content and I can still cheer for Spencer and his team. Not many balls come to the out field at this age and certainly not to the way back of the outfield. The rest of the day was spent hanging and playing at home. Being bath night the boys made their way to my bath tub (the jacuzzi type tub) claiming they wanted a big bath…..very usual for them.  So they are all set up and I am in the kitchen and Richard is with them…he apparently went to get his book off the bed and in that time Griffin stood up and tried to grab a bunch of rocks out of a tall vase in the corner of the tubs base…remember this is my bath and I like the serenity of candles and peace during my bath…the vase is about two and a half feet tall and he just could not reach the rocks, he knocked over the vase and it broke into a bazillion pieces, right into the full tub. Spencer escaped unscathed…Griffin not so much.  I get a call from the top of the stairs…mom, come to the bedroom.  So I go up and am met by Richard and Griffin wrapped in a towel going into his bedroom…Richard says check him for cuts and is off to check Spencer. OK….ummmmm…so I begin to look and find a few small cuts that are already starting to stop bleeding…but there are two that are quite large and won’t stop bleeding. One on his leg about an inch and a half long, perfect moon shaped, clean cut and then one on his forearm that looks like it might have glass in it. I try to get it out but I can not tell if it is glass or not. Like I said Spencer is clean. So we collectively decide that he should go to the acute care center and see if there is glass in the cut and if he needs stitches. (Some remember the last visit to the ACC when he was hit smack in the middle of the forehead with the hockey stick and needed 9 stitches.)  So he picks daddy to take him and I get to wait with Spencer who is feeling really bad about his brother and is in tears with worry. So they leave and Spencer and I go and snuggle in my bed and talk about what happened and what we can do differently next time. In about an hour and a half they are home and all glued up.  There was no glass in the cut as was verified with an x-ray. They glued both wounds and sent them on their way…whew…no stitches..the kicker though is that he can not get the glues areas wet for 1 week…that means he misses the first week of his first swim lessons. I am sure they will let us pick it up some other time but that is a bummer he was excited to start them today. Fortunately, he will be OK to swim when we go to St. Louis. (more later about that)

Sunday, much Quieter…thankfully. We went to Gander Mountain to do some window shopping and and then to Woodman’s …We had no plans and that was fine…the boys had fun playing when it wasn’t raining and later in the afternoon we went to see Wall-E…it was a really cute movie with with a great message.  Critics say that this movie will do more for the planet then anything that has happened thus far.  It is cute..go see it. Griffin is not a big movie or television watcher and he fell asleep but that was more due to sheer exhaustion then boredom. Best part (for mom), is we had popcorn for dinner and PB & J when we got home because we were still a little hungry. NO COOKING!!

Now, back to St. Louis. I have an Internet friend (J) that I have known for a little over 2 years. She is from Canada (don’t hold that against her she can’t help where she was born) and adopted two boys from the St. Louis area.  She is coming for a visit with the first father and foster family with the older son. There are a bunch of us that live near here and thought it would be fun to get together since J will be here…so we are congregating in St. Louis for a long weekend. All of us have adopted and all of us are bringing our children for a fun weekend. My only wish is that more of us could get together. There will be 5-6 families but if you know me at all you know I wish it could be 20-30 families. So we are busy planning out the weekend…who will be where when and such.  One friend C, lives in St. Louis so she is the main planner…the Julie of  The Love Boat *insert corny tune* but for our trip so to speak. I. C.A.N’.T W.A.I.T….seriously

Back to the grind of the week..swim lessons every morning this week…

  1. I’m glad Griffin is o.k. Poor guy.:( Cuts are frustrating in that it’s hard to tell whether to take them or not sometimes.

    Good to hear Wall E is worth it. We’re planning on going this coming weekend.
