The sickies are gone...

YAY...Jake has recovered remarkably well.  I always get worried when he gets chest colds because we usually end up on Prelone.

Cosmic Skate in Waynesboro has beginner skate lessons on Saturday mornings from 11:30 to 12:30.  Jake really, really wants to learn to skate so we took him.  They are running a special that if you come to 5 lessons (and the lessons are only 5.00) you get a free summer pass.  I think that is a pretty good deal!!!  He had a blast and is doing pretty good, still working on that whole balance thing, though!

It's not been a fun day at our house!  Jake is sick...went to the Dr tonight.  While in the waiting room, Jake burped.  We know that burp...and yep...threw up all over Daddy.  And while I'm running around like a chicken with my head cut off trying to find something to help one helped us at all.  The receptionist was on the phone...the other guy back there (not sure of his position...but that is another story!)...and people sitting right next to a garbage can didn't speak up!  Okay, the person sitting next to the garbage can was a guy...maybe he just didn't have those natural instincts to jump up and help.

Anyway...Jake got the privilege of wearing Daddy's 3xxL, Tall, undershirt.  It pretty much swallowed him.  The Dr. took one listen to him and he has bronchitis.  If he is not better by Thursday, we get to do chest xrays and all that fun stuff.  I hope it clears out by then.  I hate it when he is sick!!

Moving up in Swim Lessons...

Not a whole class, yet...but he did get to move from a 3 layer bubble to a 2 layer bubble to jump today.  He is doing so great.  When he started, he held on to Ms. Kara's hands for dear life as he jumped.  On Monday, he didn't even need to be told to jump...he just jumped!!  A little too soon, I might add, as Ms. Kara wasn't even there...oops!

I hope that on Monday, we go to just the 2 layer bubble for the entire lesson!!!  It would be so great if he could actually swim on his own by the summer!!!

So long, Sal....

Good Grief!!!  Sal is now gone...

Again, another trip to PetSmart.  They are quite nice about it and believe they got a bad shipment of the small algae eaters.  Six have come back.  So...Doug got a larger one.  Let's hope he makes it!!  Dead fish are just nasty!
