sorry i'm getting this up later than usual. its been a full week, even though we've barely left the house. normally our week is full of meet-ups, errands, friends, church, etc. this week, however, its been full of physical therapy, wrapping and icing allens knee, physical therapy, home health nurse visits, physical therapy...you get the picture.
if you ask his P.T., allen is progressing wonderfully, and is ahead of the game in his recovery. if you ask him, he would've liked to be back in the swing of things a week ago! :-) we've all got a bit of cabin fever, but we're seeing a light at the end of the proverbial tunnel.
not terribly exciting comparatively, but heres the week...
being home-bound brings the perler beads out. the kids have been creating with these for the better part of the week. they've taken over the kitchen table.
i was grateful to have allens mom here for the week of his surgery, and the few days following his arrival home. she was a great buffer for the kids, letting them read to her, playing games, etc, so i could be the nurse.
rex came to pick mom up tuesday morning. we enjoyed her visit!
kristen (the one who prays over molly each year for those of you that have been following me for awhile) got engaged last weekend, and called to ask colby and molly to be her flower girl and ring-bearer. i knew what was coming so i had my camera ready to catch the kids reactions. colby was beside himself. kristens brother shayne got married a few months ago, and allen officiated his wedding. we are so excited and honored to be involved in both of their big events!
this is what colby brought home from art wednesday evening, and i needed a picture for the day. hes learned some really cool techniques this semester.
we cozied up friday evening and watched The Bible (series on the history channel) that we DVR'd sunday night. this event required hot chocolate.
lazy pajama day. i love peeking into one or the other of the kids' rooms and seeing them create and pretend together.
this week will be alot more of the same, but allen will make the transition to a cane (hes been using a walker), and he gets the staples out on tuesday.
