Our Labor Day

We had a nice weekend, cleaning out and organizing more around the house.  It was nice, not to have to leave my house Saturday.  Sunday morning I taught my first Sunday School class and it went great.  Then came Labor Day.  As soon as Clancy woke up Monday, Cody insisted that I take him to the dr to make sure he didn't have an ear infection or something.  He has been suffering from horrible allergies the last couple of weeks and just been extra fussy.  We had to rush to get to the appointment since we live 30 miles away and the only appt I could get was in an hour.  As we turned off the highway to turn into the clinic, I hear him doing his usually cough/gag.  And then it comes.  Vomit EVERYWHERE.  And guess who didnt have an extra set of clothes/blanket ANYTHING with me?  Yeh. Lovely.  It was exactly 5 minutes before our appointment time.  I didn't know what to do.  So, of course, I called my Mommy! :)  She says, clean him up and take him in and ask for a gown.  I did, felt really weird carrying him past everyone in the waiting room in only a diaper, and they gave me a gown for him.  The dr figured the vomiting episode was just from the coughing and he changed his allergy medicine.  Hopefully it will make a difference.  When we got back out to the truck (I had just sat his car seat in the bed of the pickup), luckily I had Kylee's convertible booster seat that still has the 5 point harness hooked up.  My Mom was at work at HEB down the street was was able to buy a shirt for him.  So I stuck it on him and headed in to WalMart for shorts.  We were already in Temple and I needed to grocery shop and pick up Freddi, so I hated to drive all the way home and come back.  Anyways.  It all worked out.  Kids do some embarrassing things sometimes, but we get through it. ;)  I meant to take an updated blackeye picture for you all.  Its looking better!  Hope you all had a wonderful Labor Day weekend!  Oh, and I almost forgot, Kylee made a 100 on her very first Spelling Test!  I am SO proud of her!
