Here's whats been going one the last two weeks:
My surgery went great but I was down for a couple of days. My mom stayed with me for two days to help out around the house and to help keep Will occupied. Kristen and Rita made us dinner the day of the surgery so I didn't have to worry with getting everyone fed. I am so thankful for a great family and fantastic friends!
We have been going to the park a lot because of Clay playing softball. We are usually up there Monday and Thursday nights. Last Thursday we ran into our friend, Jackson, and his mom. Will had a great time playing with Jackson. Now every time we go to the park Will asks "Where's Jackson? Where he at?" It's really funny. Also, another Jackson funny: Jackson's first birthday party was held at our city hall. We just happen to live behind city hall and have to pass by it everyday. About every other day or so, Will will point to city hall and say "Happy Birthday Jackson party...we eat cake." Jackson's party was back at the end of April. It amazes me how much Will remembers.
Last weekend we went and stayed with Richard and Julie. Will and I slept in the same bed and it was not fun. I maybe got 3 hours of sleep. He is just like his daddy, all over the place when he sleeps. We went to a charity breakfast on Saturday morning and then Richard took us on a tour of Tuscaloosa. We
hadn't been down there since the tornado so we went a saw some of the devastation. It was really sad but from what I can tell, they have a lot of support. Hopefully, things will be back to normal for them as soon as possible.
I don't know when we bought Will this because my weeks are running together, but Will got a brand new tricycle! He loves it so much, but he still has a hard time reaching the petals. What can I say, there are not many tall people in our family. He still has a lot of fun tyring to ride it and he looks pretty on his little tricycle.
Wednesday night we built birdhouses at church. The wood came from north St. Clair County where the tornado hit on April 27th. Our youth group built about 30 birdhouses and they are going to be delivered to the people in that area. Of course, Will was all about building his birdhouse. We were asked write something on the back, so we added Will's bible verse ("Every good and perfect thing is from above." James 1:17) and a drawing. It was such a neat idea and we had a great time!
Well, I guess that is all for now. I struggle sometimes with things to blog about so I may do one of those 365 day challenges. I have seen people who do them and they really liked documenting their day even if it was just a picture. Plus I need to be better about taking pictures of Will. He is growing up so fast now and I don't want to miss a minute!
