I always wonder whose fault these bugs are. Who gave this to me!! I'm sure we'll never know.
I guess I do know that I was the one who infected nearly everyone else in my family. Sorry guys.
We thought we were being careful. I hibernated in my room for 3 days and 3 nights.
1 week after I had this yucky bug Isaac caught it on a Wednesday night on our church's floor. YUK.
By Saturday, we figure everyone is eating and well so we head to my parents house to help clean and pack. We are getting them ready to come to HINTON!!
Saturday evening I feel drained. I'm thinking its cause I've been so busy all day. Maybe the chemicals I've cleaned with..... NOPE. I got this charming bug again!!!! At mom and dad's and all the way home.
In the middle of the night Bethany gets it. She cries and cries because she wants to go to church. I understand she loves church and explain patiently 5-6 times to her she's sick and she can't. Ahhh DRAMA. My sweet little girl nearly earned herself a spankin' from me while we were both sick in bed....
Monday. The phone starts ringing. First Josh, his tummy hurts. Mom calls. Andrew and Dad have it too. ( She'd had it already) Monday evening. Sarah calls. "I'm mad at you, Liz" She's now officailly broken Stillwater in.
Once again, I'm sorry to everyone. I do think I've already had my punishment. Remember, I had this twice...
For anyone counting, this is everyone in my family except Myra, my baby. ( And my brother in Minnesota) I'm very very pleased that Myra has been left out of this experience. She must be one strong cookie. I do know she was covered in many prayers. Thank you.

Bethany and I decided awhile back to grab up a few 2nd grade friends and see High School Musical 3 AS SOON AS IT CAME OUT.!!
I was a little worried it may be sold out so I paid an extra dollar to purchase the tickets online.
I guess I should have realized this is rural Oklahoma.... The theatre was not sold out.... and really not even close. Oh well, better safe than sorry.
Bethany was so excited to have friends with her. Last year we had 2 girls over to watch HSM 2 on TV the night it premiered. They danced and laughed and completely cracked me up.
The same 2 veteran HSM girls plus 1 more new recruit came with us tonight.
The movie was very very good. I almost cried once! Seriously, and I'm not a crier at the movies.
I won't spoil the movie, but let me explain myself. Josh came to my Senior high school prom with me 10 years ago. WoW. Time has really flown by.
It's so fun to make memories with Bethany. She is a joy. It makes my heart swell to hear her laugh and giggle with her friends.

Sunday, we went to a little friend's 5th birthday party. It was at Tiger Safari in Tuttle. I had never been there and didn't know what to expect. As it turned out it's a really fun and unique experience. There was all sorts of wild animals to look at, feed and touch.....
My little tiny 15 month old baby had no fear. She touched all these animals: snake, ferret, lemur tortoise, baby kangaroo, llama, goat and an alligator!!! UGH
Yes, we used lots of hand sanitizer. They were very kind to provide sanitizer at almost all the stations.
These are sweet sweet friends of ours. Our kids rarely see each other. (Us moms talk on the phone frequently) But you wouldn't know it by seeing them pair off together. SO ADORABLE!
We each have 3. The oldest and youngest pair are only a few months different in age. The middle are separated by just over a year. Each pair of kiddos are boy/girl. My friend and I can just hear those wedding bells.... JK
We do love how our kids enjoy each others company so much.

1st grade 2007
2nd grade 2008
Isaac began "pre-school" this week. After much consideration we decided that Isaac (we) may need some transition time into next year's 5 days a week/all day long pre-school. Thankfully, one of our local churches just began a Mom's-Day-Out. So... it's only 2 days a week and only 4 hours, but it's something. And I'm thinking something has to be better than nothing when it comes to this transition time.
Isaac is one cool cat. I just sprang the idea on him.
"Isaac you want to go to school?"
"Yea Mom, today?"
"No not till Tuesday."
"Okay tomorrow is Tuesday. Okay."
He had no worries, not even questions surprisingly.
Tuesday morning. We arrive with our backpack and new Lightning McQueen lunch box. He's still cool with everything.... He spys a friend from our church and takes off into a classroom.
I'm still standing outside talking to his teacher and a few other moms and I see him poke his head out. I'm thinking, "Oh no, here come the tears" Nope. This is what I get. "Mom quit talking, you go" So I leave.
My first day without Isaac ends up being pretty busy so I don't worry about him at all. But when 12:30 comes around and its time to pick up. I'm thinking I hope he was good, I hope he was good. Hopefully no wrestling moves were pulled, or no popping of the underwear led to timeouts. To my great satisfaction and pride too. I was told "Isaac was a leader! He set a good example for the others. He's a Mom's-Day-Out PRO" Hallelujah. I'm so proud of my boy!
Here are a few pics of Isaac on his first day of MDO or "my school" as he lovingly calls it.
