I went in to my appointment and my blood pressure was high. The nurse only took it once before the doctor ordered me to go to the labor and delivery to have an observation done and lab work completed. While I was there, I found out I had an ear infection as well. I was flustered and came home, skipping the hospital order. I bought a blood pressure cuff and watched it from home that night. It was lower and I was doing fine.
To stay on the good side of my doctor, whom I am not too fan of, I went in to the hospital on Thursday morning to get Baby Q monitored. During the 2 hour observation, my pressures were great, baby was active, and everything looked great. I came home and started my 24 hour pee collection and needed one more lab to be done.
Thursday afternoon, Dustin took the older kids to see a movie, while the young two came to the church with me to work. As I was working, Kenni was feeling hot, whining, and telling me her "ear rings" hurt. When we got home, she cuddled with me while holding her lambie. (the above picture) We took her to the clinic and found out she had an ear infection as well.
Thursday evening we went out to eat at one of our favorite places, "Hu-Hot". While there, Gaby was in tears with her throat and head hurting. We came home after dinner and she went straight to bed.
Here we are, Friday morning... I have already turned in my pee test, had blood drawn, given medication to Kenni for her ears, taken my meds for my ear, and made an appointment for Gaby to see our doctor at 1:00 today.
Since we have been home, we have not made it one day without being at the doctors, clinic, or hospital. I am looking forward to getting everyone on the mend and feeling better soon!!!
The drive down actually went pretty fast considering we had 4 kids and a 29 week preggers person all in the same van. We made quick restroom and dinner stops and made it into town about 11:00pm. The kids were tired and went to sleep pretty well.
We were very lucky our friends kept all six of us in their house allowing us to save on hotel cost. The kids loved seeing their friends and so did I.
On our way out of town, we ended up going back to the MoA to do some shopping so the kids could bring back Minnesota goodies for friends and family. More pictures to come...

Last night we saw Kadyn's second grade concert... this was during the dress rehearsal. They perform the entire concert at the school assembly. My mom and dad started coming to the earlier performances because it is easy to get my mom in and out. The night of the concert get super crazy!
When she came home, Dustin and I surprised her with a new dress for her night.Our beautiful second grader!!!
Aunt Kara came over and fixed Kadyn's hair- she loves french braids and this momma just can't do it! So we are happy Kara came by to work her hair magic!
This was Gaby and Kadyn's first year to play basketball through Upward's. We went right up the street to Eastside Church. The kids had a great time, had devotions each game, and learned the basics to basketball.
Two of the kids came from dance- Mia lost interest in the game and started showing off her dance moves.
There team did great and placed #1. Gaby said basketball isn't her favorite but did a great job for being her first year!
We scored some free tickets to the circus... it is by far not my favorite activity, however the kids did great and we had a fun time.
By the end of the line, she loved them. They all liked the clowns but Gaby. She said she was too old to get her picture taken with them.
Dustin's mom and step dad came with us. Grandma Dee was a good sport and rode the elephant with Mia and Kadyn.

Our wacky day went well as we did circle time and read more from our silly book. Parents, ask your kids about the 6 toed creature we have been singing about.
Happy Tuesday!!! Get up and do the happy dance!
