Our friends Holly, Odin and Breck were supposed to come stay over night on Friday night...but...Breck had to go home early from daycare on Friday and that canceled our plans. I was SO disappointed, but SO thankful that I hadn't told Finn yet! I have a rule: I try to wait to tell him about plans until they are GUARANTEED to happen because of unplanned changes just like this. I hope we can reschedule because it would have been so much fun.
Swimming on Saturday went better than the first week. Jim still wasn't feeling well, so I took Korri and he stayed with Finn. Jim took him in the locker room for a bit to reset his attitude and that seemed to work. When Korri and I went over to the little pool, Finn was playing and then wanted to show me toys and whatnot. Baby steps of improvement. I really hope Jim is up to taking Korri this weekend, so I can watch Finn's class. Korri, as always, had a blast. She LOVES "blast offs" and she is getting better at climbing out of the pool and doing the monkey crawl (walking along the wall). We signed up for the spring session this week and Kristine signed Zander up, too (so Korri and Zander will be in the same class!). Of course, I had to tell her the pool was much colder this week AFTER we signed up. Hee, hee. AND Laena and Braeland are going to be in Finn's class for spring. Overall, two very good changes for spring!
Because our weekend plans fell through, we were able to go over to Auntie Kristine's for Grace's birthday party on Saturday afternoon/evening. Jim stayed home (he didn't want to hack his lungs out all over everybody!) and cleaned the house, which was AMAZING to come home to. The kids had so much fun and all played together really well. Zander wasn't too sure about Finn using his lawn mower, but then I think he realized there are a MILLION other toys! LOL. Finn loves the toys at auntie's house. The funny thing about cake was both of my kids asked for a second scoop of ice cream but neither one touched the chocolate cake! Weird. I can't believe Grace is a teenager! We better all watch out...the next few years might be a bumpy ride :)
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.
