so i guess its time for an update-things with my contacts worked out great. Thanks for the encouragement. Potty training is going as well as could be expected. He finally figured it out and is now only having issues with pooping. it will come, hopefully soon. He stayed dry at church. that is my usual stress, being away from home for more than 3 hours. but he did fine. Sunday was our Primary Program. Its when the kids ages 3 to 12 give talks and sing songs to present what they have been learning through out the year. It can be a very sweet experience, except when your child looks pale and has had the flu that weekend, and you are praying he doesn't hurl all over the 5 kids sitting around him.(he was sad because they moved his seat, and he was actually crying)(FYI, if I was really worried that he wasn't feeling well, I would have kept him home. but sometimes you never know if they are really well until like a week later) and your 4 year old is standing up, sitting down, laughing, poking, and the worst, hitting his teacher.(dad had to get up, walk around the back, and up the other isle to step in and keep him from giving his teacher a black eye) Our family also sang one of the verses in the song "Home". All the kids, and us sang the first verse, we sang the second one alone, and then we all joined in again for the third verse. The verse we sang went like this "Home is where there's father, with strength and wisdom true. Home is where there's mother, and all the children too." We were loud enough that one person said they didn't know we were singing alone. So I figure that is a compliment. I think that Austin had the right idea, as he was sitting down by my feet hiding. I enjoyed the experience, but its really not my favorite thing to do-sing in front of people.
We have the greatest neighbors. They share their toys with us. They had two wiggle bikes, shown in the pictures. and because my children can't share, they now have two more. the kids still don't share. But it is wonderful to have such great neighbors. All the kids run out the door when they see Sammy playing outside. We love you guys! and not just because you share your toys. :)

Good job on singing! I know that you were nervous but I'm sure that you did great. Zachary had the flu yesterday too. It's never fun when your child doesn't feel well.

See you guys in a couple of weeks!

Sounds like the typical primary program theatrics!! :-) They could not have picked a better family to sing that verse!
