We had a follow appointment with the spine surgeon to follow up on Ryan's scoliosis. The news was not great. His curve went from 28 degrees to 41 in only 6 months. We are being measured for a back brace Monday and starting to think spinal surgery is on the horizon. Surgery is normally the recommendation at 50 degrees of curve. 

The pic in the right was January. The pic on the left was Monday.

Worlds of Fun

Molly and I went to World's of Fun with my Aunt Chris, my Aunt Jan and two of my cousin's boys. The kids (and grown ups) had a blast!  Molly has a wonderful time getting to know cousins she hadn't hung out with before.

Sunday Funday

Much better Sunday this week than last. Today we spent the day at our new subdivision pool. There was only one other family there!  We grilled for supper and enjoyed manicures on the deck for the girls!

Happy 4th of July!

It was nice to take a break from disaster cleanup and celebrate Independence Day with family, neighbors, steaks, spraklers, S'mores and of course, fireworks!

Not Even Funny

Just when I felt like we were finally starting to get settled in, we woke up to a flooded basement.  We had almost 5 inches of rain yesterday and it was too much for my house without a sump pump to handle.  We had the professional water cleaners out, fans and dehumidifiers are running, and all furniture is up on risers.  We also had Roto Rooter out, they will be coming back on Tuesday to give us our estimate for our new sump pump.

Two Weeks In

We moved in to our new house just over two weeks ago. Being that Bobby and I were in Mexico for half that time, we've spent the week we have been here making it feel like home. Some of the things we've been up to:
New washer and dryer
My rockstar dad hung pictures and clocks and installed hinges and light switches and showerheads (thanks dad!) not to mention my rockstar mom watches the kids for a week while we were gone. Thanks mom!
Mulching and planting out front
Finished unpacking and fit two cars in the garage. Hooray!!
The kitchen table and dresser for Ryan's room come today and our refrigerator comes next Wednesday!
