i posted a couple of weeks ago about the two-ish years worth of pages that i was sorting and putting into albums. i finished it that night - what.a.job. it's definitely one that i'm glad to have behind me. now i need to pick up some more albums so i can KEEP putting pages into them. i'm pondering a color switch for ben - i'm not sure what shade of blue i used for him, and i'm not in love with it anyways. i might move him into the green and sam into yellow. or maybe i should spray paint them all black and be done with it - ha!
pages IN albums means more time looking through them - and it lead me to another old layout that i wanted to share. this was made in september 2009, when i guest designed for studio calico. it's still one of my favorite photos of ben, and i love that he is still the same decisive kid.
that same boy, now a few years older, scared his mama last night. after three + hours with a headache that wouldn't let up and got to the point where he was going between sleeping and crying, he and i headed to the children's ER. he was starting to feel better when we got there, but the fear of an oh-dark-thirty relapse was enough to make me decide to go in. i'm so glad we did - turns out he has strep. they gave him a shot of a painkiller and a rx for antibiotics, and he is feeling totally fine today. who knew you could get strep throat w/ no sore throat? this is the first time in our almost 12 years of parenting that we've had a boy with strep, so it's new to us. and i'm hoping it will be an isolated case.
happy friday! it is gray today. gray and blah and sleepy. i had told sam's teachers not to expect him today (the bigs are on spring break, sam is not), and i'm glad i decided to let him play hooky, because it means i didn't have to get up and out this morning after a late night last night. today is all about laying low.
