So are we "reeeeaally sick?" Jett seemed very sick this morning. I was certain he couldn't go to school because he had a bad stomach ache, headache, backache and said he might throw up. I insisted Cory stay home with him, which he did. Cory texted me and said that he slept for 3 and half hours and then woke up fine... ready to eat and boy did he eat! He even felt like playing.

So, the whole time I was at work I was wishing I was the one home with Jett.

My back is K-I-L-L-I-N-G me, I had a pretty good headache all day, earache and my glands and throat are sore! I totally feel like I am coming down with something. However, since I ran out of sick days last year so I wasn't about to give any up this early in the game!

Anyway, hope we all can be healthy! Especially for Oakley's birthday party this Sat evening.


HI, it’s Oakley Blakeman here and I want to invite you to my Swimming Birthday Party! (By the way, I am turning 6!!!)
Please don’t bring me presents! Instead bring as much money as you feel you can give to my cousins’ grandma, Evonna (Blakeman Schelling)! She was just told she has lung cancer. I want to help her be able to pay for her Dr. bills and go to a specialist. Evonna is the same age as my grandma and she has lots of grandchildren she likes to play with so I really want to help her.
PLEASE pray for Evonna and PLEASE come swim with me!

Here’s the details:
Saturday Oct. 3rd 4:50 -6:15 (We will swim for an hour and then we will have a birthday snack in the lobby!)
your swimsuit, towel and money for Evonna

Friday night sleepover!

I surprised the boys tonight! Cory picked them up from daycare and came home, while I went and picked up a friend for each of them on my way home from town. What a great surprise when I walked in the door with their friends and said, "Boys, I got you a surprise! Come check it out!" They were so excited that the boys got to stay the night! (Jett had Ethan and Oakley had Carson.)

They ate a yummy kid friendly supper that included mini corndogs and cookies (from Carson.) They played team sword fighting, where miraculously, no one got hurt. Then they watched, Journey to the Center of the Earth, played some more and went RIGHT TO SLEEP at 9:30! WoW, What a fun night and I am so happy they went to sleep! NOW, I better get to bed myself!

Here is a picture of us, right before bedtime, playing a game Carson brought! They had fun putting the sticks in my hair!

First day of school

Both the boys are going to Black Hills Christian Academy in Spearfish. This is the first year they have went to the same school. We are so blessed that they both have two amazing teachers who care deeply about their education! Jett is challenged to get caught up with private school curriculum but he is doing well. I am happy that he is getting lots of one-on-one attention. Oakley, is right at home with Mrs. Raad who he had last year for Pre-K. We are truly blessed that we can send them to BHCA where we know they are getting the best education!
