    we now have children’s hospital in our gps

    Posted by K on July 14, 2008

    Well, we did get to test out the gps this weekend, but not in any way I would have wanted to.  First we used it to find a new quick way to our movie theater to watch Wall-E.  It was a really cute movie and both girls behaved great and watched the whole thing.  I’m always worried about taking them to the movie because they are both so young (5 and almost 2) so we went to a matinee, which usually doesn’t have many people.  Suprisingly there were quite a lot of people there, and also a lot without kids.  Last night at 9 pm our littlest (who will turn 2 next month, she’s growing so fast!) climbed up on the arm of the sofa and proceeded to fall off backwards head first onto the hardwood floor.  We called Children’s Healthcare who advised us to take her immediatly to the emergency room.  I would not even consider taking her to our local hospital so we jumped in the car and called my m.i.l. to get the address for Children’s Healthcare.  We plugged it into the gps and were there 25 minutes later.  It totally paid for itself with that trip. Oh and about our local hospital, even though it’s closer I could GUARENTEE we would have had to wait at least an hour to even be seen.  It is a horrible institution.  They made my little cousin (she’s 2) sit there for over two hours when her blood sugar was over 400.  She has since been diagnosed (at Children’s) with type 3 diabetees.  By the time she was taken by ambulance to Children’s her blood sugar was 790 and she was slipping into a coma.

    It is official

    Posted by K on July 9, 2008

    The school board has officially accepted our new German exchange student!  She should be arriving August 2nd.  If you’ll recall, last year they denied Ray’s application, so we were concerned.  Speaking of Ray, she arrives August 6th!  The thought of helping take care of two teenage girls hasn’t frightened us, YET…

    We have been busy

    Posted by K on June 10, 2008

    As you may have seen in the previous post, our lovely Chinese exchange student returned home to Chengdu on the 6th. Before she left, she was treated to 3 separate going away parties. The first party was thrown by her friends from school, the second from her grandparents, and the last from us. Click the photo to see all of them.

    The next day we attended the wedding of a friend who is also the sister to my daughter’s godparents. It was HOT. The temperature in Georgia hovered around 100 degrees, and went over it at some points. It was an outside wedding so we’re still recovering. My girl is getting to be a pro at this flower girl thing. She looked beautiful as always and had a great time!

    update on our girls

    Posted by K on May 2, 2008

    Ray has her prom tonight, it’s her first formal dance apparently they don’t do things like that in China. She’s going with a friend of hers. Basically since it’s a small school they are all going as friends and just going to have fun once they get there. The boy she likes is taking another friend of hers that he used to date, but he likes Ray now, so we’ll see what happens there. Our 4 year old is now reading Level 6 books at school, every night that shes been at her dad’s she calls us and reads us a story. She is doing so great to be so little. And last but not least, little bit (our 20 month old) is going potty on the big girl potty consistently and is starting to be better about not being a terror when she doesn’t get her way 🙂 We love our girls!

    knitting gone wrong

    Posted by K on November 16, 2007

    I have been working on a little knit hat for my oldest daughter for a couple of days now (when I could find time, it’s hard to knit with a baby on the boobie). Last night as I was finishing it up, my husband noticed how small it seemed. Don’t worry I said, it’s stretchy. Um no. The finished project was too small for even my little milk lover. We ended up putting it on the cabbage patch doll that 1.0 adopted at BabyLand General. I did start a new hat last night and doubled the pattern size, I think this one will work out better, but my old creaky joints got tired after a couple of hours, plus I needed sleep. Hopefully I can finish it this weekend. I’ll post a pic of the cute hat disaster tonight. In the meantime, here’s pics of the cabbage patch baby that received the hat. As you can see in the second picture, their heads are nowhere near the same size, and the hat fits the baby doll perfect. ugh.
