Very brief update

Our apologies for not posting on the blog lately, life has been a little crazy here and we have realized that we have not had a moment to spare and write a post.  Kristi asked me, David, to write a quick post as to what has been going on in our lives, so here it goes.

A couple of weeks ago, we had one of those weeks when one thing after another breaks down.  First it was one of our two toilets broke, then my car decided not to shut off/keep running (even after I would pull the key out of the ignition), so we were busy with a few days of getting the car and toilet repaired.  Then, right after that Grace's little body broke down, she was sent home sick from school in the middle of the week and by 2:30am that Sunday, we were taking her to the ER, due to her breathing being labored and low oxygen saturations dipping much lower than we were comfortable with.  She was admitted to the hospital for four days and discharged in the middle of the week.

This is how we started in the ER...

...and this was 4 days later!  Almost back to her silly self!

Luckily, Grace was discharged just in time to model in the GiGi's Playhouse fashion show... addition to Kristi and I being able to get out of town for the weekend to celebrate our 13th anniversary!!

Double anniversary celebration with great friends

Two days after we returned, Kristi was off to New York for a work meeting for two days and made it back home about an hour before Andrew's school play, in which he did a great job!  Then, Abigail had her school field trip on Friday, to which Kristi was able to join in on the fun.

Andrew's biggest fans...

Then, yesterday we had the Rise and Shine 5k run at Grace's school, followed by Abigail's soccer game...
The girls ran the 5k

The boys (and mom's) ran the 1k...

...Then a brief two hour break before we went to the Houston Dash (Women's soccer) game where Abigail and her soccer team were able to go on the field and hold the flag for the national anthem.

I'm sure I am missing some things, but these are some of the reasons why we have not had the time or energy to post on the blog the past few weeks.  Hopefully, next week will be a regular post!

Have a great week!

Yeah! More pictures. Besides living with the seesaw and roller coaster with Grace's health, you ride the merry-go-round with all the activities.
