The church I grew up in and still go to if I am at my parents is a small church... the church we have to go to b/c of the catholic boundries in our area is HUGE. I hope that if I can get DH on board to send the kids to the school attached to the church will help me feel like I belong there.. Dh grew up not going to church so it's just a waste of an hour to him.
That makes sense. If we can afford it, I'm really thinking about sending the boys to the christian school that DF went to. We will see though.
We've had a not so good week with E. I've gotten a call every other day, and a note on his daily sheet on the other dates. I think E has whatever Everett has.
I'm sorry you are having a hard time with E. It is close to a full moon.

Well, we figured out the red dye 40 thing and that makes a huge difference for him, but he's also had a cold for a while and is randomly complaining of sore throat, belly ache, etc. Nothing constant. I think tylenol helps for a while, but the tylenol I have has red dye 3 in it and I'm not sure if I want to try out all the red dyes.
I am also short on patience because between us thinking about that house and DH being wound up late at night talking, and Dalton being sick I haven't had nearly enough sleep. I napped when the boys napped this afternoon and I had to drag myself out of bed when Everett got up. I downed a cup of hot tea hoping it will pick me up.
I don't know if I posted but we opted out of the house because we had some capenters look at it and they pointed out some MAJOR defects that would mean more of a 5 year project over a 6months to 1 year project and it's just not what we are looking for as a family right now. We will be able to build on to this house or build a new house in a few years on our 14 acres of wooded property. Our current location is incredible but the house just doesn't have enough space. I think I would prefer to build on here if at all possible.
Happy Easter! This morning we started our day bright and early for sunrise services out at the cabin where we are getting married. Gorgeous full moon on the drive out there, I forgot to take pics even though I wanted to. I did take several pics of the boys and the view once the sun came up. Its absolutely everything I envisioned for our wedding. DF and I really are on the same page. He obviously couldn't see inside my head and was able to pick the perfect spot without me even being here. I'm beyond excited. We are home for a bit before heading back out to regular services, then lunch with MIL. This afternoon after naps we are making something like resurrection rolls (not sure if its the exact same thing though).
Yesterday Russ watched the Wizard of Oz. I've never watched it with them but he loved it. He ended up watching it twice yesterday and never moved or said a word. Same thing today. He is a perfect lil angel. I was hesitant to let him watch it because he tends to stress about tornados about as much as I do. He is fine watchign videos of them though. So I let him watch it, of course he stressed out that our house could blow away like it does in the movie and that DF wouldn't know where to find us. He hasnt worried since seeing it the first time so I guess he is ok.
X told Russ a couple weeks ago that he was going to come visit for Easter. We are still yet to hear from him. He rarely calls and now didn't even keep his word to see the kids. Its irriating but at the same time I think Russ deals better with things we he doesn't have contact.
Hope everybody had a great Easter. We went to early service then went out to our big property (14 acres of woods) and looked for mushrooms. Dalton fell asleep about halfway through and I didn't bring a carrier. Everett wimped out in the last half an hour and DH carried him off and on during the way out of the woods. I hadn't been over there since because E was born because it's very rugged terrain and I figured he would do exactly what Dalton did. We had lunch then headed to my sisters house to have Easter dinner and play. It's getting fun watching the little ones play outside!
Everett has had some weird stuff happen this weekend. Friday he wouldn't walk on his left leg, limped, cried, begged for us to carry him. I put him to bed and figured he'd be better in the morning and he woke up screaming. I debated urgent care, but gave him motrin and he perked up and seemed fine the rest of the weekend until the ride home last night and he started complaining of his leg hurting again. We told him to just rest it since we were riding in the car and before bed he asked for medicine to make his leg better. I remember having horrible growing pains as did my husband so I don't know if that's it or what. If he complains today thought I'm taking him to the doctor because it's just wierd.
Amber - I'm glad you had a beautiful start to your Easter.
Poor Everett. I hope you guys figure out what is going on with him.
All in all Easter was wonderful this year. After lunch with MIL and her brother we all took a 2 hour nap. Then the rest of the day was pretty much a lazy day, especially for me bc DF made dinner. X called and said he was at a school for training and couldnt call so he just left a message. I talked to his mom yesterday and she said he is there for three weeks. If that's the case he might not see the boys before he deploys afterall. If he does, these two can def give him a run for his money.
