Campfire DooDaa

Last night we had our Wednesday night ladies Bible study around a campfire at Olivia's. It was great fun! We also had smores, which I'm not supposed to eat (because it's a sweet), but I did anyway. Yummy! I just thought I would share with you some of the deep conversation:
1. Fire is hot, stay away from hell!
2. Bugs run from fire, so should we.
It was a very deep night. :)
Seriously though, we did spend some time in prayer and decided to study Jesus' words in the next few weeks. We're going to work through the gospels just reading His words and context around them if needed. I'm very excited about doing this. I'm expectant of new revelation of who Jesus is.

Dinner & A Movie

Chris and I got to go with a big group of ADULTS from our church to see Prince Caspian yesterday afternoon. First we ate at O'Charlies which was really yummy and then we all headed to the movie. We followed Ben to one of the front rows, which made me a little dizzy during some scenes, but it was fun. The movie was good although I didn't care for the ending (I won't ruin it). It was a great day out. Thanks to Aunt Sally and Uncle Erik who took care of Kinley for the day. He slept long and hard last night so he must of had fun.

Side Note: Kinley is doing fine now. We did take him this morning for a follow up chest x-ray that we should hear about later this week, but I'm sure it will be fine. Thank you Jesus!

Emergency Room Again!

Well . . . my Mother's Day morning was spent in the ER with Kinley. As you know, I wrote a couple of days ago about Kinley having a bad cold. Well, Sunday morning he was wheezing again and couldn't breathe very well. So, we took him to the ER. They gave him a breathing treatment, took a chest x-ray, checked for RSV, etc. The breathing treatment helped plus a little steriod to open up his lungs. He tested negative for RSV. His x-ray looked like the beginning of viral pneumonia. So . . . he is now getting 4 breathing treatments a day at home and is on an antibiotic. We also bought a humidifier for his bedroom. He is doing much better but tires very easily. One interesting thing is that both times this has happened it has been a week after his shots. Any connection? I don't know. It could be some type of allergy or asthma. We are just praying for a complete healing for him!

Doggy Bye Bye

Just one more thought. Tonight I went for a walk after putting Kinley down for bed. I was almost back home when one of our neighbors' dogs (which they never keep track of) started growling at me and running at me. He got right on my heals and followed me for awhile growling the whole time. I seriously thought he was going to take a chunk out of my tushie. Chris has also experienced this same dog in our yard growling at him when he has stepped outside to "get fresh air". Do you think it would be ok for me to mention this to our neighbors? I don't appreciate being growled at, and I really don't want Kinley around that dog. Chris told me he was going to get me a paint ball gun so I can shoot it when it comes in our yard and then call animal control. I thought I should just get a bee bee (spelling?) gun and let it know we don't appreciate it in our yard. Seriously though? Any thoughts?

Sniffles and Sneezes

Kinley has a really bad cold today. He is sleeping peacefully though, thankfully. He sneezed so many times today we almost went through a whole box a puffs! Poor guy! His eyes are red and puffy and he just wanted to lay around. This is not normal behavior! I hope he wakes up feeling a lot better since we are supposed to be taking my mom shopping tomorrow for Mother's Day. I hope all of you mothers have a wonderful mother's day! Hopefully I won't have a sick little boy.

What was that?

Yesterday I took Kinley for his 18 month check up and shots. We didn't have our usual nurse who we love, so we were a little disappointed (at least I was). Anyway, after seeing the Nurse Practioner, who we also love, we proceeded to wait 25 minutes for a nurse to come to give Kinley his shots!!! Give me a break. Sitting in a small room with things all around he CAN'T touch with a little boy who wants DOWN! Needless to say it was not very fun. Thankfully Grandma Van went with us so at least we had two people to try and entertain him. The nurse finally came in then went back out because she had forgot papers for us. When she actually did give Kinley his shots he just looked at her for the first one like "What did you just do?" He didn't cry or move. The second one he looked at her, gave one cry then was done. He's so brave! :) What I thought would be a fairly quick trip turned into an hour and a half. Glad that's over!

Soaking Wet

So . . . as I was doing the dishes yesterday afternoon I heard a thump from the living room. I didn't think too much about it until Kinley started screaming. I ran in to see what was wrong and found him soaking wet trying to wipe himself off. At first I panicked thinking: What did he get into? But then I saw my glass on the floor empty. I had forgotten my glass of water on the dresser. I'm not sure how he reached it, but it sure gave him a shock and me too.

Happy May Day Everyone!

Can't say that we did anything today for May Day, but I did think about it. I had to go to the doctor this morning for some blood tests and then we went to meet Chris' mom and grandma for lunch. By the time we were done eating, Kinley was too tired to do anything else. He fell asleep really fast in the van. So, I got some cleaning done which was good. Nothing too exciting to report. Thank you Sally for keeping Kinley this morning! :)
