the ins and outs of everyday living this week

The week has gone by quickly but not without some excitement.

Eric was home sick on Monday. He is feeling much better now.

Harkin had his 2 week check up. He gained 14.5 ounces in a week so he is eating well. Some days it seems like that is all he does. He loves for me to hold him, which I love just as well, but doesn't allow for much else to get done.  He has a slight murmur in his chest so we will be going to a cardiologist next week just to be on the safe side.

Tuesday brought us out of the house and back to the hospital. Landon hit his head on the edge of our counter top and split his head open. They only had to glue it instead of stitches. Luckily it wasn't worse.

Wednesday evening Jaxson slipped on the stairs and hurt his hind leg. He is feeling better and is able to walk on it now. Must have just been a bruise or sprain.

After rain in the beginning of the week we got a few inches of snow on Thursday. King Winter is still holding on. We don't mind it though. The boys have 3 more weeks of ski club, so we want the snow to last.

We have been getting into a bit of a routine and managing to work through lessons a little bit each day. William is focusing on his Beast Math this week and Landon was working on his reading. He is so proud of himself that he can read all by himself!!

The boys also completed a project they have been wanting to do for awhile. A rock display for all their special rocks they have collected over the past few months. 

Although there are bumps along the way, life is what we make of it and how we react to it all. I need to remind myself of this so often and am trying my best to instill this to the boys.


  1. Well, that was quite a week! Glad Landon's head is ok. Glue is so much less traumatic. We have had staples and glue, and the kids much prefer the latter! I can't get over how much Harkin looks like Landon, it's like a mini me! Glad Jaxson is ok, and I am sure Harkins heart will be just fine. Hang in in there, and I hope this upcoming week will be much calmer. Evren thanks William very much for his birthday card!

  2. What a week! Glad everyone is okay and healing.

    You summed it up perfectly with this - "life is what we make of it and how we react to it all." YES!

    Wishing you a peaceful weekend.

  3. Oh my! What a week! Glad that all is well now but I imagine that you must have been wondering what was going to happen next. Here's to hoping that next week is much less exciting! :)

    That's so exciting that Landon can read all by himself! I cannot wait for the day that that happens here!

  4. Some week. Bet you are glad it is over. Yeah for Landon. Grammy can't wait to hear you read to me! Love, XXXOOO
