Rain and baseball. That is what the previous three days have been. I can not recover from this “spring” weather–it hasn’t been this chilly in Might for so long as I can bear in mind. When within the automotive, we go from warmth to air con and again to warmth in a single day; at dwelling, we go from warmth to home windows open to closing the home windows for rain, and warmth once more when it is too chilly within the late afternoon. At Eli’s baseball video games this 12 months, I have been sporting lengthy underwear beneath my garments in addition to a hat and gloves. In Might! It is loopy.
Anyway, this weekend has began out very poorly…
After two and a half years of managing to keep away from it, COVID has reached our family.
Jerry is the one one who has it (or who’s symptomatic, anyway), so hopefully it stays that manner. He took checks Wednesday and Thursday–both had been detrimental. This morning, his signs had been worse and I instructed him to strive one other take a look at. It confirmed up as optimistic virtually immediately.
All 4 of us are vaccinated and boostered, so I hope that his signs do not get any worse. He has a cough, very stuffy nostril, physique aches, gentle fever. He will not should go to work till subsequent Friday, so proper now he is simply sleeping rather a lot. It is loopy how he managed to keep away from it for thus lengthy, even when it was at its peak and he was nonetheless working all by way of the pandemic.
Anyway… Eli requested me to take some photos of him at his sport earlier this week and after I was wanting by way of them, I could not imagine it was my child. He is SO grown-up! It was funny–a couple of youngsters from the opposite staff requested him if he performs soccer and he stated no. They stated he seems like he lifts weights, haha. He takes time without work of lifting till baseball is over as a result of he has follow or a sport each single day. However I can not imagine how a lot the lifting modified his physique in such a short while body.
Verify this out… a ten 12 months distinction:
That 12 months, in his grey shirt, he selected quantity 11 as a result of it was my favourite quantity. The sweetest child ever!
We’ve got child squirrels!! I am so excited and they’re SO stinkin’ cute. It is exhausting to see their dimension with out one thing to match it to (and it is exhausting to get photos of them as a result of they transfer so quick and everywhere). They appear to be grownup squirrels, simply in miniature kind. There are 4 of them they usually chase one another all around the tree, wrestling and going out on limbs that simply look manner too small for them.
On this image beneath, you may form of see their dimension compared to mother. She’s on the far proper.
I assumed it was attention-grabbing that Duck sleeps along with his eyes open generally. On this image, you may clearly see his eye, however he was snoozing. I assumed he was watching me as I used to be shifting round the lounge, however his eyes weren’t shifting. You possibly can see a shift in his eyes when he wakes up–from vacant to “Oh, whats up there”. It is form of creepy!
I gave myself a haircut and it feels a thousands and thousands occasions higher. (It seems dangerous in these photos as a result of I might had it pulled up whereas it dried, so there are lumps from the hair ties, however you get the concept.) The highest of it was wanting so weighed down, and I simply spontaneously minimize it after I bought out of the bathe. It would not appear to be a giant distinction, nevertheless it feels SO brief now. I am glad I can nonetheless pull it right into a messy bun (simply barely, although!).
Joey on our stroll Wednesday morning. I form of miss doing this route with him. I’ll make it a degree to do it extra usually.
The cats have been getting a lot consideration ever since Duck’s surgical procedure in December. I laid on the sofa a number of nights in the past and as a substitute of letting all of the cats sleep on me, I let Joey crawl up on my lap (he is there, he is simply exhausting to see!). He cherished the additional attention–I believe he felt particular that he bought precedence over the cats.
Eli requested me to purchase him Lunchables after I went grocery purchasing. They’re like $2.50 every and also you barely get any meals in them–certainly not sufficient for an lively teenage boy. I put collectively these ones for him and it made me so nostalgic for when the youngsters had been little and I packed their lunches. Once they went again to high school throughout the pandemic, lunch was free for everybody. Eli began consuming faculty lunch ever since (by alternative, not as a result of I made him). Now he says he is sick of faculty meals; I am glad that I can pack lunches once more! (I by no means thought I might say that)
After we went to my mother and father’ home on Sunday, Noah performed with Luke and Riley. He is SO GOOD with them! I at all times thought it will be Eli who was nice with youngsters, however Noah chased them all around the home and the youngsters had a blast with him. I really like seeing all of them play collectively.
Noah bought a haircut yesterday, fortunately. I really feel like I’ve to clarify due to the way in which his hair seems in photos, haha. He is been rising it out so he simply had the perimeters minimize and the highest trimmed. I am not a fan of the lengthy hair, however I am simply an old school mother I suppose 😉
Lastly, an image of Phoebe having fun with the one random good day we have had. She rolled round on the concrete and lay within the solar. She cherished it! I take her outdoors a few occasions a day for about 10-Quarter-hour as a result of it is the one factor that she appears to actually sit up for. She perks up a lot after being on the market.
And that is all I’ve bought. Have an awesome weekend!
