We’ve had a busy last few days!! It’s becoming a time of year where we are constantly on the go. Friday evening when I got home all me and E did was change clothes before we headed back up to the school to watch our ((fab)) neighbors play softball. Elias was soooo excited about going to the ballgame and he had an absolute blast. So much so that he even tried to go play in the outfield..haha. He made it through the fence once but fortunately his daddy reacted quickly and grabbed him up. Barely in the nick of time though! Elias really did enjoy it though…he ran around and played like he was as big as all the other kids. Brent and I agreed that ballgames are just for weekends though because..man oh, man–were we exhausted after chasing after him all evening. ((More so B than me….))
Saturday we planned to go to gymnastics but between Elias’ shenanigans and our dog Daisy we missed it by about 15 minutes so we just went on to Pensacola and enjoyed a little shopping. It was fun but also tiring.
Sunday we went to church which is exhausting in itself because Elias will not stay in the nursery or a class of any kind. ((I’m sure this is 100% my fault…but it is what it is now…we’ll do better with the next one—maybe…))Brent and I spend about half our time trying to keep Elias from disturbing everyone around us. He was much better Sunday than he can be but it’s still tiring. I read an article one time about how important it was to persevere through these difficult times and I try to remind myself how it’s better to have him there learning than to just give up and not go at all. And I also remind myself that everyone around us should mostly understand. Especially those who have been in our shoes before!
Sunday evening we had a funeral visitation to attend and then Monday night was gymnastics!!!!! I’m beginning to really like this gymnastics class…he’s exhausted when we get home so it’s a quick supper, bath and bed which makes for a nice relaxing Monday evening.
Here are the highlights from our weekend/Monday evening.
PS—-the potty training could be going better, but then again, it could be going worse. We are trying really hard but when we are out of our routine in ANY way, he has accidents. Also, that’s not a tracking bracelet on his foot, he’s not on house arrest. It’s a potty watch that reminds him to go to the potty every 30 minutes. Unfortunately, even with it we have had a lot of wet “underwears” hahaha
