Summer, month two…

Summer is dragging to a close in these parts.  It’s been a fun one.  The boys have become professional relaxers, but are ready for the routine that school brings.  We’ve done lots,but not everything from our Summer Vacation Chart.
The boys were itching to do the Mentos experiment with Diet Pepsi.  Sometimes {most times} it’s the little things!

We had an eventful beginning of July.  We went for a fun week’s visit to Dan’s parent’s house to celebrate the 4th with family.  We were at the beach the first day and Dan started getting dizzy.  He went to bed and it started getting worse.  It was to the point that he couldn’t lift his head off of the pillow without passing out.  We ended up having to call an ambulance and spending a chunk of the day in the ER.  He was diagnosed with a severe case of vertigo and was given a ton of meds.  I had no idea vertigo could be so bad, but he was a super sick guy during our trip!  The boys managed to have a great time with their cousins.

While we were away dealing with medical problems, our dog was being boarded at his vet and had an onset of glaucoma so bad that he had to have his eye removed! When it rains it pours I suppose.

His recovery was almost out of the reach of my nursing abilities {read: I have a weak stomach!}, but he is doing great now.  As energetic as ever!

The week after we returned from our trip, our sister in law and kiddos came to stay for the week.  The kids couldn’t wait for summer cousin fun…and I think they all had a ball!!

The following week was VBS,which is one of my favorite weeks of the summer!  The boys had fun {of course}.  The girls brought the most money for our mission project, so they got to throw water balloons at Dan.  :-)  It’s one of Daniel’s last years as a participant {he’s getting too old!}  Luke was super pumped to be there.  Both boys love going to church and I’m very thankful for that!
Favorites of  week eight…
Daniel~ Water Fun Day.
