I've become one of those bad bloggers!

I really never thought this would happen, but hey I guess I'm only human. lol

Lots of things have been going on around here. Lets just start with today....
Evan began his first day of Preschool today. He did really well and even helped a new friend that was sad.
When I picked him up the first thing he said was he got hit in the head and the back. I was confused and asked if he fell at the playground...being careful not to accuse someone of doing it. He said no. Then when we got in the car I asked how the other little boy did. Evan replied "He hit me and he was rude". I have never heard him use the word rude before, but often ask him and Wendy not to be rude to each other. I asked if the teacher talked to the little boy and he said yes and he said he was sorry.
Mike and I were on the phone on the way home talking about Evan's day and he asked if the teacher said anything...in the background Evan said loudly so Mike could hear..."He said sorry daddy". I think it was handled okay.
Once home the teacher called me and told me what had happened and it seems like the little boy didn't mean to they were putting blocks away and he accidentally hit Evan with one.
One thing I've learned is that Evan will talk about things unlike my Wendy or Holly ever did!

I hope I can separate the photos.....

Secondly, over the summer we did another big "First" of Evan's...for that matter it was Wendy's "First" as well. We went to Disneyland via Car Trip!!! We went to the Petrified Forest on the way and really enjoyed it. Roadside Picnics and plenty of potty breaks. lol
When we arrived in California we crashed. Not really. We went to Down Town Disney to look around and ate supper. The next morning was a Monday so we since our tickets to Disneyland didn't begin until Tuesday we decided to go to Huntington Beach. We really had a good time, but one thing did go wrong! Mike was going for shells and turned to look at us and waved....as I snapped the photo a 7foot wave was coming up behind Mike's head! CRASH!!! It picked Mike up 6 feet in the air and then he came back down with his right arm trying to help break his fall. He lost his sunshades and tried to look for them. Once he came back up where we were he didn't look good. He thought he had a really bad sprain, but nooooooo 5 days later when we got back home we found out he had fractured it in three places! Can you imagine??? He got a arm brace at CVS to help it. It really swelled up horribly! Tuesday came and he was really in pain,but didn't go on about it so we could go on to the park. He road lots of fast rides and did many things with it he shouldn't have.
Once back home I insisted he go and get it x-rayed. Our doctor was out of the office on vacation, but got him in for one over the phone. Yes it was fractured and not sprang, but it was in line. Over that weekend he decided to mow. When he went in for a cast the next week he had maneuvered the fracture out of whack. He really needed pins in it, but opted for just a cast....so tomorrow he will find out if he can have it off or not. My bet is not! He just can't keep it still long enough to do any good.
Luckily we did manage a wonderful trip in spite of all of this, and Evan got to see the MOUSE!

These photos are of the beach. Check the one out of Mike waving to us and the "Wave" coming up behind him.

I'll do a new post with the Disneyland photos....

Oh my goodness...poor Mike! I hope he was still able to have some fun through what I imagine had to be pretty painful. I know the kids had a blast :o)

So enjoyed seeing Evan's school pics! He sounds like such a precious and soft hearted kiddo! But then, he has a pretty great mama!

Sending hugs your way!

So glad to hear that Evan is doing well and seems to have the handle on things at school :) He has really grown! Hope Mike is feeling better soon. Not a fun way to spend a vacation. Disney is always a great time!

Sounds like and 'exciting' trip for you guys and for Mike. hahaha. Men. They never think they need to see a dr. hahaha. And drs are the worst -- so I hear.

So glad Evan likes pre-school. I can't wait to get the girls in pre-school -- maybe when they are 3.
And Evan is getting so big and grown up looking.
