My new picture

A couple of years ago I snapped a picture of Logan sitting at the piano trying to play with Preston's Grandmother, Memommy. I absolutely love this picture and love how Logan is focusing so intently on Memommy. Last year when Memommy was here for a vacation I gave her a copy of the picture and asked her if she would mind painting. Memommy is a great artist. Tonight before dinner she gave Preston and I this painting. I am so excited about it. It just takes my breath away and I can't stop staring at it. I am so excited to have this treasure and I know Logan will really value it too when he gets older.

The last several weeks

I am sorry it has been so long since my last post. The good thing is we have been busy and having a great time together. So you can see all the fun we are having I am going to post lots of pictures with captioning.

Preston is playing in a Dawson Rec Basketball League. Logan, Nathan, Owen and I are a big cheering section for Preston on nights he has early games. Logan made a sign that he loves to hold us and yell, "Go Daddy". During half time Preston lets Logan come out on the the court and shoot some baskets. Logan loves going to Daddy's games.

At the end of April, I traveled to Nashville with Sarah Cook and Julie Hughes to run the Nashville 1/2 Marathon. We had lots of fun that weekend. We are already talking about where we want to go next.

Nathan and Owen did very well when they got their ear tubes. We are noticing an improvement in their hearing. We are so glad everything went so smoothly. They have a follow-up appointment with their ENT on June 3rd and will have a new hearing test on June 9th. We are excited to get a good hearing test at that time, with their cleaned out ears. This will help us determine if Nathan will need to look into cochlear implants or stay with his hearing aids.

Logan's class hosted a wonderful Mother's Day lunch. Each child came to their mother (standing outside the class room) handed them a carnation and invited them to the lunch. Once we were in the class, we sat in each of their seats and they brought some yummy punch. We had Chick-fil-A chicken fingers and fruit for lunch. The kids each drew a picture of their mother and wrote what their Mom did that was special to them. They also made pretty candle holders and their teacher, Ms Traci, made a silhouette of each of them. It was a very special time.

Logan is helping Preston mow our backyard.

Logan is really enjoying playing t-ball. This week Nathan, Owen and I were there to cheer on Logan. Preston was enjoying watching his students graduate at Samford.

Logan and Gracie had a great time together at iJump for James Comer's birthday party.
One of Logan's favorite inflatables was this giant slide. He went down it over and over and over.
The four of us enjoyed an afternoon at the zoo. The weather has been so nice we are getting out any chance we can get.

Ear Tubes

Tuesday morning Nathan and Owen had tubes placed in their ears. Both did well in surgery and are doing well at home. The boys have a follow-up appointment in the beginning of June and will have another hearing test done on June 9th. Hopefully we will get a good/true to their hearing ability test now that their ears are not full of fluid. I will put up some pictures of their adventure in the hospital soon.
