Ok, so I'm not going pro. But I did learn a lot today! It was really fun, and I was able to talk to a bunch of people! I'm printing out my pattern as we speak, so I can get started ASAP! :)

Last night was WAY rough! I didn't head to bed until close to midnight. As soon as I was signing off of the computer, I hear Barry say, "Christia, come here." I knew right then and there that something was wrong with Julian. I ran up the stairs, (sorry neighbors, I know they squeak)to find my pillow covered in vomit! Icks! Julian was no where to be found though, until I looked in our bathroom. Poor bug was sick in the bathtub. I stripped him down, and gave him a quick bath. Of course, after the bath, he was no where near ready for bed! So he wanted to go 'downdairs' and watch a 'DDD' and of course, since he was pukey I let him. I reclined our recliner, and then he fell asleep on me, only to wake again a few minutes later. He said, "Mommy, I'm going to puke again." And he did. I was SO thankful that he told me that he had to puke, and didn't just do it all over me!

That was the last of the puke for last night. He woke up bright and early at about 6:30, and was awake. I got to sleep in again :) and my wonderful husband took the sicky downstairs. When I woke up at about 8:30, Julian was acting 100% normal. I don't know what is going on with him! He really hasn't been feeling good since we got here. I hope he kicks whatever bug he's got quickly!!

We went down to the school today. Barry had to get a blood test to check for some antibody, to make sure that he had it. Then we went to the zoo! It was freaking hot today, so next time I get the bright idea to go to the zoo in the heat of the day, talk me out of it! Julian adored the animals. His favorite was either the zebras or giraffes or the lions! Our Point Defiance Zoo pass got us in for free! Yippee! He did keep asking where Grandma was. The last few times we'd gone to the zoo, she came with us. It was kind of hard to explain to him that she was in Washington, and we're in Iowa. He talked to Grandma on the phone today. She asked him when he was coming home, and he replied, "Two days Grandma." It was adorable.

Gabe decided to roll off of the recliner today. Totally my fault, and I feel SUPER guilty about it. I am so embarrassed that my kid fell off the couch (yet I'm blogging about it.) He cried a lot, but I think he was just scared. Poor kid.

I'm really excited for the knitting group. Every Thursday, except for next Thursday. Next Thursday is orientation :)

I'm glad you had fun and that we didn't scare you off! :) I won't be in town for orientation, but I hope you have fun.

Poor Julian! It is so weird how kids can be soooo sick and like 10 minutes later they are playing like everything is fine. If I bring Tavin in Sept. we should totally go to the zoo! How does is compare to the one here?

Denise and I were SO excited to hear that you used your zoo pass! She renewed it today, and the price went up to $97 from $70 last year! We got a month free, though. I have been checking your blog every day and love, love, love knowing what is going on with you all. We miss you lots, but this blog is fabulous; you have a nice writing style that sounds just like you. Love ya!

I hope Julian gets feeling better. I hate puke! So I did something totally my fault a few days ago too. JT pulled down my flat iron and burned his cheek and arm. I felt horrible all day. YOu are not alone. My dr told me that things happen and we can't prevent everything. So that made me feel a little bit better, but just a little bit. Good luck with knitting. I love to crochet, but have never tried knitting. :)
