Monday we had Basketball Camp. It started really late, so I was irritated. But Finn seemed to have fun regardless and his friend from daycare, Christopher, was there. Christopher is a bit of a trouble-maker, so I wasn't extremely happy to see him there. But I'm viewing it as Christopher's behavior is teaching Finn how to make the right decisions. Korri was a pill. She kept taking her shoes and socks off and was climbing on everything and then I realized she must have been tired because near the end she laid down on Jim's coat and probably would have gone to sleep if we'd been there longer! Finn is getting so much better at shooting, so that is fun to see (still can't get it high enough for a basket, though!).
Winter registration started on Monday, so we signed Finn up for Floor Hockey in January (God, please do NOT let him love hockey. Thank you.) and tumbling in Feb/Mar. His friends Laena and Braeland are going to join him, so I know they will have a blast. It is stressful trying to figure all that stuff out.
Tuesday, Jim left for another trip to Michigan (boo, Michigan) and Stacey came over after work to baby-sit us. We had a great time with her there and she and I got some much needed catch-up time after the kids went to bed. Thank you for an absolutely wonderful evening, Stacey! I am lucky to have you in my life :) Side note: I stayed up too late and was SUPER tired the next day, but it was worth it!
Wednesday, we were going to go visit Santa, but Finn REALLY wanted to go home after daycare and I wasn't really on board to take them by myself, so I decided Santa could wait. We had a lazy evening, just the three of us, playing and watching "Mighty Machines" (one of Finn's favorite shows).
Because I hate having a post without at least one picture, last weekend, Korri had her first father-daughter dance!
Nearly half a million babies (1 in 10) are born premature in the US each year which is higher than that of most other developed nations. This is the journeys of our first born son, Finnegan, who was born 14 weeks early and weighed only 1 pound 15 ounces at birth. Of our daugher, Korrigan, who was born a healthy 7 pounds, 7 ounces at 37 weeks. And of our second son, MacKeegan, who was also born at 37 weeks at a whopping 8 pounds, 13 ounces. Our continued adventures reminds us daily how good God is.
