Some of our latest....

1. Warren got sick with that Coxsackie Virus, that was running rampant in my neighborhood and ward, due to the fact that it is super contagious. Lovely! The poor kid was covered with awful sores and blisters all over his legs, hands, feet and even his face and mouth. He seemed to get it the worst out of everyone I knew. We were miserable and quarantined for about 5 days. He's healthy and happy now, but has scabs all over him that are taking forever to heal. Even on hot days, I keep him in pants to avoid the creepy stares people give us!

I've been told that most all my kids must have had it before, and just never had outward symptoms....maybe just a random fever or something. It stands to reason that Warren would be my one to get it full blown like this. He gets everything!

It is supposed to be like chicken pox. Once you've had it, you are immune. I hope they are right.

2. Laura had her ballet recital. She was one of the fish caught in a net by the sorceress. It was very cute.

3. Tustin officially became a teenager. I'm still a tad taller than him, but I'm sure he will be looking down on me any day now. Teenage boys grow like crazy! Its the weirdest phenomenon to witness. Overnight growth spurts seem to be the norm. And they are always hungry!

He is my biggest helper with Warren. I'm not sure I would have kept my sanity this last year if not for him. I can always rely on him to hold the babe, play with him and even change diapers and get him to sleep. I'm a lucky, lucky mom.

I can't post any pictures of our summer happenings yet because we are still in school!! New York tortures us for another 4 days. Lame!!! Every year when we trudge away until the end of June I get so annoyed!

I was sure we must be the last ones out for the summer because June 13th seems ridiculously late to me to get out, but I AM SO SORRY FOR YOU GUYS!!! I hope you start later, though. My poor elementary kids only get 2 months off. Yuck!

With such a late summer start date I don't imagine you'll be in Tahoe next week -- that's too bad since I would have loved to run into you guys in the church hall again.

Happy summer, anyway!

And poor baby -- that looks miserable! I hope the brownie batter made him feel better.
