Casey's First Day of School!

Casey had his first day of first grade yesterday. I cannot believe he's a first grader! He's growing up so fast! He's going to be starting soccer again for the fall season. He's excited about that. He'll also be starting Awana Bible Club soon at the Baptist Church. Here are a couple of pics:

Cody and Connor are doing great.............Con ended up at the ER Saturday with the rapid breathign again. We have a breathing machine at home now in case he has these episodes so we can give him a treatment before it gets so bad.
Cody got his braces back today. They broke 3 weeks ago. He's walking everywhere already. They also made them bigger since he's grown so much. He's been asking for them and asking to walk.
They are going weekly for Early Intervention this fall. They will have their evaluations soon to see if they qualify for preschool services.
That's it for the Croy's!

More Cute Things The Boys Say!

The other day, I honked the horn at someone and Cody said "What Happened?"

Connor was having some rapid breathing again today so we took him to the ER and the whole time we were there when he'd hear something, he'd say "What's that about?"

Connor was crying a little while ago and Matt went in to check on him. As soon as Matt walked in, Cody said "Connor's blanket, daddy." Sure enough Connor needed his blanket.

Casey is all geared up for 1st grade. He's excited that his teacher this year will be Mr. Larr.

As for Connor's trip to the ER, he had some cold symptoms yesterday. Today it turned into rapid breathing. They did two breathing treatments and sent him home on antibiotics and steroids as well as breathing treatments. Here we go again!

Check Ups

The boys had their check-ups yesterday. Casey had his 6 year check. (Although he's almost 6 1/2!) He's doing great.........his weight and height were great. His BP/Heart Rate were great. She thinks one of his ear tubes has fallen out so we'll follow up with his ENT about that. He's going to have a hearing test just to be sure after all of his ear infections and 2 sets of tubes he's doing okay in that area.

Cody and Connor went along for weight checks. They were checked at 27 months and she didn't want to wait until they were 3 like she does with most kiddos due to the fact that their weight has been so low.

Well.............they have FINALLY hit 25 pounds! They both weighed 25 pounds 8 ounces. This is the first time since they've been born that Cody hasn't been a pound and a half bigger than Connor! It seems like Cody weighs more but I think it just must be the way their weight is distributed. Connor has very long legs and Cody has a longer torso. So she is happy that they both gained. Connor gained 3 pounds and Cody gained 1 1/2 so she's happy with both of them. They will get weighed again in 3 months just to be sure they're still doing okay.

I go back to work Thursday so the boys will be returning to our fabulous baby-sitter Alice on Monday. Casey starts school on Tuesday. I went to Alice's Sunday and took diapers, wipes, clothes, toys, a highchair and 2 cribs! They're all moved back in!

That's it for now!

Things the boys say.....

The boys all say some funny things every day. Here's an example from each of them.

Cody: Every morning when I get him up, he says "I want reppest (breakfast)"

Connor: He calls corn, "popcorn".

Casey: He informed me a little while ago that he was going to join the Coshocton circus when he grows up. He's going to be the strong man. He's been practicing by holding things above his head.

We're all better!!!!!!!!

Well, we are all better at our house! :) Luckily, the twins are over their bugs and Casey managed to get nothing more than an ear infection that we were able to treat with ear drops.

Casey is excited that he'll be in Mr. Larr's class this year. Since his friend Jorrie had him last year, he wanted to have him this year. He is getting his new back pack tomorrow. I bought most of his supplies tonight. I can't believe he'll be a first grader! He is in a 4-H Cloverbud group now so he had his meeting tonight. He's all grown up!

I've started working on my classroom. The beginning of the school year is always exciting! It is going to be a great year! :) I'm ready for the routine that the school year brings. I'll be glad to see the boys at 4:00 every day though!

That's it for now!
