Summer is almost over :(

School is about to start and we haven't really done a whole lot in our last week off! Tyler was real sick last week, Lincoln had a double ear infection, and Nathan was moody from the steroids so we didn't go anywhere last week. That drove me nuts!!!!! However, I have been working on some of Lincoln's party prep. I've been spray painting baby food jars and boxes! I made and printed his invitations.

Tyler is on the mend, just is all stuffy, Lincoln's ears are finally clearing up, and Nathan started running a 99.something low grade fever today. Not sure what it means but praying he's not getting sick. Tyler starts school tomorrow started school today but the lil guys have this week off still before they start back on Monday. I was hoping to get in another beach day before they go back, but it looks like rain all week :(

Sunday I logged into my Facebook and found some devastating news. A beautiful 5 year old received her angel wings early that morning. Back when Nathan was first diagnosed with Leukemia, I met a wonderful mother and her precious young daughter online. Her Mia, who's the same age as Lincoln, also had ALL. Mel was a great support in those beginning months, and we kept up with each other through our caringbridge pages. Then we became FB friends. Last summer, while in maintanence, Mia relapsed. She had to have a bone marrow transplant that October, her wonderful older sister was her donor! Mia was in and out of the hospital many times throughout the year. She ended up relapsing again but it was too soon for another transplant. Mia became very sick but she was happiest when she was at home, so  her parents took her home. Mia went home to be with Jesus and her family needs your prayers as they mourn the loss of dear sweet Mia!

Also on Sunday we had been invited to a 40th surprise party so it was a great time to make one of the 40 Blows gifts I found on Pinterest. I decided to combine the two main ideas of gumballs or blow pops and I made a blow pop bouquet in a vase filled with gumballs. I then added a cute ribbon around the vase and made a lil sign that says 40 BLOWS and glued that to the ribbon. I also made a gift tag that I glued onto a skewer and placed in the bouquet.

I also made a homemade sugar scrub! Again I found the idea on Pinterest, but the original post came from I love it!!!

I have pictures but for whatever reason the blog is not letting me upload my pics :(
