Adelaine is doing so good! One more day of steroids and she will be done for the month. She and the boys had a fun time celebrating Father’s Day with Doug, and so did I. Doug opened presents, enjoyed an art show featuring all the art work the guys completed last week at Art Camp, and we had a relaxing day at home. The children all made their cards for their Daddy. Adelaine even wrote all the words out herself, she is getting so big! She also drew a picture of a baby and scribbled a blanket over it. She explained to Doug,” That’s my baby sister wrapped in a blanket.” Yep, the pressures on! We went from a fish, to a puppy, and now a baby sister! What’s next? I’m afraid to ask!!!

The guys all had fun playing video games most of the day. While I was getting a few things done around the house Mason and Bowen were playing baseball Wii. I heard them say, Wow, Adelaine, what a great catch”. I looked up and there was little Adelaine in the outfield making her big play, pink shirt, blond hair, blue eyes, pigtails and all! How remarkable these games are today, it really did look just like little Sis! I remember when it was just Pitfall, Packman and Donkey Kong! I stood there in awe while I watched all the Wii Me’s they’ve created. There is this one that looks like an exact duplicate of my friend Katherine, but she wasn’t out on the field today, instead they placed Adelaine out there with “Homeless Guy”, I kept looking for him to place the balls he’d caught into grocery cart and push them across the field. They did a great job designing him, he was a perfect looking hobo.

I left the room to go mop the floor in the bathroom, I know, not too glamorous, but somebody’s gotta do it. I kept thinking of the game. “I can’t believe my little girl is out there on that field with Homeless Guy. What if something happens to her? I mean, has anyone done a background check on him? Then I hear all sorts of cheers for me, “Way to go Mom, good catch”. You are awesome”! The cheers went on and on. Finally I went in to see what was going on and there I was playing baseball. It really did look just like me too, complete with the beauty mark on my cheek! I was thin, I was tall, good thing or we would have had to make some changes, Ha! It was a beautiful day, blue skies, packed house, fans cheering, playing a very good game if I do say so myself. I was a bit relieved to see that they didn’t just stick Adelaine out there with Homeless Guy, just the two of them together. But the three of us, we really kicked some booty! It was quite entertaining that while I was cleaning the bathroom my Me Wii was having an awesome time playing baseball with the kids! What a bizarre world we now live in!!!!!

For dinner Doug cooked one of his from scratch homemade pizzas. Yum! I got all my chores done this weekend and the children and I are planning to spend a relaxing week at the beach and the pool. Next week all three children have Vacation Bible School. This will be the boys fourth year going, but Adelaine has never gone before. Last year, the risk would have been too high for her, with her weakened immune system. I am planning to let her go this year, but there’s always that chance!

After that we will start our summer travels. First up, Maine, Camp Sunshine, http://www.campsunshine.org/ ! We will be leaving with the Evers on the 28th and returning on July 3rd. I can’t believe it is almost here. I started getting things ready today. With the new one suitcase per person rule, it will take some serious effort and condensing to make it work. I’m not sure how realistic it is to pack blankets, sheets and towels plus everything else into one suitcase each. I don’t think just sitting on the suitcase is going to do it, we are most likely going to need a bulldozer!
