A Sick Day and a Trike-a-thon

Yesterday was so not fun. I woke up with a stomach bug at 5:00 in the morning. I haven't been sick like that for probably 10 years. And on top of that, at noon, I got a migraine. And I couldn't even take a thing for it because I couldn't keep anything down. I was in bed all day, except for my trips to the bathroom, and when I crawled out of bed long enough to get Tyler some lunch. Poor kid. He was good; he just watched Playhouse Disney and Noggin all day at the end of my bed. He was so excited for Dan to come home, so he could have someone to play with. And of course my husband is so wonderful that he took over all the neglected chores and let me sleep.

I finally feel back to normal tonight, after being a little run down for most of today. But I was well enough for the trike-a-thon! Yea for Tyler.

He did such a great job. The kids rode their bikes and trikes around the parking lot, and could stop whenever they needed to. He kept going for the whole 20 minutes, and he got 13 laps. He was so excited when he found out he was going to get a gold medal at the end. And the pizza they were selling as part of the fund raiser, well he couldn't have had a greater night.

Is it Fall yet?

I am so ready for it to be fall. We've had a few mornings, where you walk outside and it feels just a little like fall, but with most days still up to 90 degrees, it's hard to escape Summer. Tyler and pulled out and set up our fall decorations today, because we want it to be fall time!

And just for the grandparents, tonight Dan took Tyler for a special daddy outing (dinner and Chuck E. Cheese). When they came home I put Tyler in the bath and left him for just a minute. He usually turns off the water himself when it gets to the right level. Tonight he had bubbles, and I guess they were quite distracting, because when I came back in, this is what I saw:

Do you see how high that water is?

Gotta love him. I think I will go give him a good-night kiss now.

And now, there's a blog

I have decided to jump on the blog bandwagon. Now, I know that my computer skills have yet to progress beyond surfing the internet, organizing my photos in photoshop (the actual editing of said photos is another story), and balancing my checkbook in Quicken; however, I am certain that I can manage a blog. Let's see.

For my inaugural post, here are the top three events of September:

1. Tyler started preschool.

What a big guy we have! He seems to be doing well, his teacher told me she wants to take him home. I'm still waiting to find out that this little talker of mine has spilled some family beans.

2. The Wild Boar
Did you know that wild boars lived in Houston? Not just in the wild but in my neighborhood? I know now, because one attacked me. Well, he ran in front of my car, and now there is one less wild boar running the streets of Houston. And of course, this happened in our 7 week old car which is still in the body shop.

3. Adoption
We have received our adoption application. After several doctor visits, and being told that nothing is wrong, we have decided that this is the option for us to pursue now. Do all we can, but trust in Heavenly Father for his will and his timing.

Look at that. One post down, and I even included pictures. :)
