A Weekend Away

Well after 8 months of non-stop children we had our first weekend away from them. Eli went to Grandma and Grandpa McIntyre's and the twins went to Grandma and Grandpa Blocks. We are so thankful that our grandparents are able and willing to help out. We have spent all weekend cleaning the house, garage, outside, and spending some time alone. It has been very nice but the boys were greatly missed. It is amazing how three boys can bring such joy to a house.

The past week was a good one. The twins passed their breathing tests. We no longer have to do them as long as they are not sick. But in the same day our dog Jack became very sick. We had to rush him to the vet. Luckily Sarah had the day off and stayed with the twins while Eli and I went to the vet. So in one day Eli and I had been to the doctors with the twins and then to the vet. Jack had the flu. He was dehydrated and was put on meds. He is still not back to full recovery but is doing better. We are looking forward to Thanksgiving with our family in Marion. Attached are some pictures through out the week.
I finally caught Andrew on camera climbing on top of the train table. He does this very often. It was one thing that we moved out of their play area this weekend.

Caleb climbing on to his toy. He is currently enjoying standing on his own. This seems to be all he enjoys doing. He has stood on his own for a few minutes at a time.
