Pizza Anyone?

The other night for dinner we decided to do something fun with the girls. It was actually Ryan's idea so I wont take credit for it. We bought stuff to make our own personal pizza's and just let the girls do their thing. They thought it was great that they got to make everything by themselves. It was a lot of fun and a great family activity!!

Spring Soccer

Well soccer has officially begun!! I am really excited that it is finally warming up here in Cache Valley. Bay and Brin had their first soccer game on Wednesday. It was hilarious as usual. They have goalies this year which they did not have last year. So Bailey played goalie the second half of the game. We apparentely need to practice drop kicks because the first time she tried she kicked it up over her ahead and almost in her goal. She caught it and then tried again but this time it went all the way over her goal behind her. It gave every one a good laugh. Bailey scored a goal and was the only one on her team to score. Brin is just funny. She is so small compared to all the other kids but she holds her own ground. Her face is always so determined and they are both really aggressive. I love it!! They are so fun to watch. Brin is feeling much better and goes back to the doc next week to make sure her ear drum has healed. Ryan has finals next week and he is so ready to be done with school and start working full time. Then all we have is one more semester!!! YEAH!

Slacking on the Job

Alright so I really have been slacking on my blog! We had a crazy week last week with Brinley being sick. She has a ruptured ear drum and strep throat...again!! I took her to insta-care last Tuesday becuase she woke up with all this nasty stuff draining out of her ear. The whole side of her face was covered in it. So they told me that she had so much fluid and crap in her ear that they could not even see her ear drum. Assuming it had ruptured they put her on amoxicillin and gave her some eardrops with a steroid and antibiotic in it. Well I have had my kids to the doctor enough with ear aches that I know I do not like amoxicillin! It does nothing for them but of course I am just a mom so what do I know. By Thursday she was still feeling yucky and her ear was still draining like crazy! I called her normal pediatrician and he said to bring her in. So back to the Doc we went and she did have a large hole in her ear drum and definitely needed to be on a stronger medication. What do ya know??? So he put her on augmentin and she is finally getting better I think. We have to go back in a week to make sure the hole has healed back over. So we are praying for that!!! Friday night Ryan had an Elders Quorum party and that was the first time she had been out in the big world all week. So she was thrilled to see all her friends! It was a fun night and it was good to get out of the house!!
