On Friday, we had to take Jake to the doctor (a specialist) to look at his finger. We had a pretty good report. He didn't think it was broken...but, he still wants it taped up for 2 weeks. He also said, he didn't want him running, jumping, climbing, holding on to anything (like a tennis racket/baseball bat), or riding his bike for 2 weeks. Did he not notice the gender of my child? At the end of 2 weeks, we'll take him back to the doctor to have another x-ray to make sure it wasn't broken. Good luck keeping him from doing those things! He did, however, say he was able to swim. Go figure!
After the doctor, we went to Steak N Shake for lunch. We started reminiscing of our favorite things of the summer. Here they are-
Will's Top 3:
1. VBS in Houston (how precious is that?)
2. Going to the Hyatt Lost Pines w/Nana & Papa
3. Going to Colorado
Jake's Top 3:
1. VBS in Houston (probably because his brother said that)
2. Cousin Sleepover at Mimi's watching High School Musical 2
3. Eating at Steak N Shake
We headed to the mall after lunch to try to find them a new shirt for school and Will a new backpack. They wanted neither...so we left the mall (I will not miss shopping with my children...they HATE to shop). Then, we went to the school to help Will's new teacher (Ms. Peterson) finish her room. What a great way to spend the last day of summer...helping someone else. We had a blast doing it, too! The boys were so great and amazingly helpful!
So, now summer is over. It has flown by even though it was 3 months long. Tomorrow starts a new adventure for our family! I'm sure I'll have lots to post....
For now...here is a recap of summer...
