I seems like the last week was actually two or three.... but alas, it's only been a week and a day - and oh so much has changed. Picking up at last Saturday, a big thing happened... BIG! Ethan made two shots in his basketball game! I honestly wasn't sure we'd get to see that this season, but was so proud. And tickled pink that after making the first basket, he came running over (in the middle of the game) to give me a hug and a kiss. Oh the tears... the tears.... Love. Lucas got to play with his Sunday School friend during half-time - made his day!
The week was rough - Ethan's arm has been hurting him so much. He's been on tylenol and ibu pretty much all the time. You can see when it's wearing off, as he gets unruly and kind of angry.
But then Wednesday, the best thing happened. He was eating breakfast and a tooth came loose! Oh a new obsession.... He wiggled and wiggled and wiggled, and during lunch - that sucker popped out!
The news around here was tough this week - really tough and very sad. Scary and tragic. So I spent a whole lot of time just holding on to my kids. This weekend we just had a lot of fun together and spent a lot of time snuggling. Both boys have been asking for snuggles lately and I'm all over it. We had a busy weekend - bball game, birthday party, lots of grocery shopping, cleaning, etc., but somehow balanced it all with writing stories for each other to illustrate, reading, playing games, cooking together, and just being. So tonight I sigh contentedly. It doesn't make the news any less tragic, but it does make me focus on those things that are great in my life. And there's a lot of that.
