I'm too lazy to upload all the cute pictures of my sweet boys playing ball this weekend..and tball tonight. I'm tired!
And I got a message while we were at the ball field... Someone rang my neighbor's doorbell, and when he went to answer it (he was right by the door), they took off running, threw a beer bottle at the street light (missed!), and ran into the "woods" (vacant lots between us). Then, when our neighbor attempted to follow them into the woods, they started throwing big rocks and branches out! So..they called the police.
She wanted to make sure it wasn't one of our kids (ha!), before she called the police (well..I've called the police on her sister's car once..so now we call each other first! haha!). When we got home, there were police cars here, and we all went out to "conference". ; ) The policemen went out into the woods with flashlights, but no sign of the guy(s). At the bottom of the hill/woods, there is a drainage ditch (the reason no one has built on that lot!), so they probably made it to the ditch and took off out of the neighborhood. Scary! We used to have lots of break-ins, but it's been a while. Now, we have our guard up again. (should I thank 15 to 22-year-old-scary-guy?)
And? I went to the doctor today! And...the heart is still beating! : ) Another week under my belt. So thankful. Super thankful for weekly ultrasounds and peace of mind. Thankful for prayers for our tiny life growing. Thankful for today, and the chance to do it "right" this time. (I know, I know, but I have to think I have some control! ; ) If I wasn't so exhausted I'd show you an ultrasound picture of the tiny bean and its halo. (it's really the yolk sack, but it looks like a big halo over the head. ; ) I promise I'll get it on..
Praying for you and your tiny lives too. For another day of accomplishment. : ) We forget what a victory it is to make it through with our family for another day! I am not taking it for granted. ; ) Hugs, ya'll!
