Blogging Break

After logging on here today it looks like I took an unplanned Blogging Break. I'm not really sure what happened or what my excuse is for not blogging since June 16th....

Our summer seems to be progressing at warp speed. Cade's last baseball game was June 25th. The team managed to come out of quite a slump and ended up playing in the championship game during the tournament. Unfortunately we lost. If we'd had last bats we would've won, but it was a good lesson in losing for Cade. He didn't get a trophy and it upset him terribly. It was to the point of him sobbing uncontrollably and Jay getting very frustrated by the fact he would not stop crying. It was a hot, sweaty, dusty, tear filled scene at the ball field for a few minutes. It turns out that Cade's behavior really wasn't his fault. He came down with strep 36 hours later so that explained the ugly incident at the game.

Speaking of strep, which seems like all we've talked about since January, Cade is scheduled for a tonsillectomy on July 22. After the last round of strep even Cade was asking how much longer till his surgery. We are really hoping that taking out his tonsils will not only make him feel better but also improve his mood. The last few months our sweet little boy has been replaced by a grump. I'm sure that the bad mood is because he doesn't feel good and hasn't felt good for some time. He's been on antibiotics non-stop since May 16. He'll be off for one day and the sore throat will come back. This last time he was put on Zithromax and has managed to be unmedicated for 5 days and so far no sore throat. Keeping our fingers crossed that we'll be ok until his surgery.

On Friday we are leaving for vacation. This year we are returning to New York and DC with the kids attending WLC. This time we're spending two nights in NYC and one night in Atlantic City. We'll be gone from July 10th until July 20th. I'm really looking forward to the trip this year. Lyle and Jania are also going so that should be fun. Jania and I are driving a van with the luggage and Ty and Cade. I'm sure there will be lots of pictures to post once we return.

And if anyone of you is wondering about Charlie since I haven't posted much about him in awhile - he is turning into a somewhat decent dog. I think the "surgery" he had last December is finally working and he's calmed down considerably. Last Friday I walked outside to see him headed over to the neighbors cows. I yelled at Jay that Charlie was trying to chase the cows. Jay stood by the road and yelled at Charlie to come back and surprisingly he did. That was major progress considering this was the same field Charlie disappeared in with his blue leash fluttering in the breeze a year ago. I keep reminding Jay that it's baby steps, but he is getting better. Considering Charlie's almost 3 it's about time he starts settling down.
