August week 1

OK I know that I'm late this week posting, but I was busy taking care of a child, and I went to post and Blogger was down yesterday. 
Last week started out with Connor having surgery.  We had to be at the hospital at 6:30 in the morning.  Connor of course was a little scared and a lot shy at first.  Here is the picture when we first arrived at the hospital
He was not excited for what was about to happen.  The nurse came in and took blood pressure and vitals and then gave him Versed.  Holy cow this child is funny on Versed.  At first he was in a zone, then the anthologists came in and Connor was laughing hysterically and told him that he had 4 eyes.  Then Dr. Hunter came in and Connor told him he had 2 heads.  You had to see it to believe it.  Right before they took him back I looked at him and said Connor does mom have 4 eyes and he said no but MOM YOU HAVE AN EYE ON YOUR CHIN.

Jon and I were laughing till they took him away.  He was only in surgery about 30 minutes and then in recovery 30 minutes then we got to see him.  We heard him coming all the way down the hall screaming.  He just kept saying I want to go home.  Please take me home.  After eating a slushy and tons of ice chips we got home about 11:00 a.m.  What a morning we had ...not knowing that we were going to have a awful week with him.

This week also starts HELL week for football!!  It is totally what it says it is.  It is a week of tryouts and literally wearing the boys out.  Both Colby and Colton are playing this year, but in different divisions.  It is going to be an exciting year.  Colby made the Pee-wee B team, and Colton made the Gremlins 8-9 B team.  It is going to be a great season. 

Ashlee had another appointment with Dr. Bills.  This time she got the Herbts removed. She was really excited to get all of that metal out of her mouth.  The only bad thing is they had to remove all of the back brackets on top and bottom and put in totally new ones.  She says its nice to have all of that metal out of her mouth.

It was also Colby's birthday this week.  He was really excited for his birthday this year.  He is a great kid.  He drives me totally batty some day but we still love that kid.  We had a little family party for him on Saturday morning but the family party was on Sunday.  Here is one picture with his favorite toy that he received...LEGO's.  I will post all of his birthday pictures next week with my post. 
Happy Birthday Buddy!

So here it goes....18 days and counting till school starts.  I was not looking forward to it this year until this last week.  Now I'm totally ready for them to go back.  It's going to be a great year.
