Friday night we attempted to go to a "moonlight" egg hunt. Crazy Midwest storms had other ideas. The skies darkened as the great hunt neared. The egg hunt was then moved inside but that turned crazy with a couple hundred people! It was mass chaos but the boys managed to get some eggs. Hailey didn't partake in that one...she would have been trampled! Saturday the 5 of us layered up and loaded in the van for the first games of the season. The temp was 49 degrees at 9:45 for the start of Brayden's game...the temp was still 49 degrees at 12:15 for the end of Ian's game. It was dreary and chilly...the chill to the bone kind of temp. We had our picnic lunch in the van and I had to crack up at Hailey. Eating her lunch out of a tupperware container while sitting on the van floor with mom. Poor 3rd child...I think I need to devote a blog post...what life looks like being #3 (atypical or typical!). She's a trooper though. She doesn't complain about it much. Both boys played well, tried their hardest and had fun...that is all I ask of them.
|Uhhh...here we go again!|
We then drove to the egg hunt with our local developmental disabilities agency. They set up an event for the early intervention group. The boys hung out with friends and Hailey got a few eggs. It was chilly so they cut some of their activities but they all seemed happy.
|What do you mean, I'm not supposed to eat them?|
|You really want me to pick these up out of the grass?|
This week is a short week for both boys at school and then they are on spring break. I keep thinking back to a year ago. We didn't go to any egg hunts last year...we didn't "live" much at all last year. We were still in shock...we were scared to do too much...we didn't know how to live with Hailey's heart defect...with Down syndrome. We are making up for it this year. We are back to "living" and enjoying life!!
