yesterday we went to our pid in pittsburgh and the children had a ton of bloodwork. we’ve already heard back about some of the bloodwork, things are looking pretty good. they likely both have a ton of parasites, but we won’t know that until later this week (maybe). we felt very fortunate to have ben and danielle by our side (or myer’s) throughout the doctor visit and then lab work. they watched myer and played with the kids, it was great–and we were thankful to have the extra hands.
today was my first “full day” home alone with the children. they slept a little late because we had such a long day yesterday. i wasn’t supermom today, but we did manage to eat three meals and a snack, everyone got dressed and brushed their teeth, and we played outside in the beautiful weather. i had the usual pouting from mastewal (at least once a day) and afton tamirat fell about 1 million times and had some minor accidents. myer just went with the flow as usual. we didn’t do lessons today but we did make bead necklaces and read. i’m glad the weather will be nice again tomorrow–so we can go outside.
