Our summer is officially over, whaaaaaa

This post is kind of all over the place!
Jax had some follow up labwork and chest x-ray yesterday. I'm bummed I didn't get to look at the x-ray with my ped, her computers were acting up. She called me and told me she didn't like the x-ray with him being on the vent. She said there are still a lot of areas of collapse and junk! So today I call pulmo and probably up his vent settings a bit.
Last Friday we got to meet Bella's family! We didn't get to meet Bella, because this was a quick trip, and like Jax, you can't take Bella on a trip without planning! Her sisters are very sweet and really loved on Jax. We really need to get to Texas next year and meet our Bella!
Look at that smile he gave Bella's momma!

Mondo starts school tomorrow, and the other two start Thursday. I'm actually feeling quite relaxed today. I'm getting more excited than nervous for Mondo. Although I know the first day of junior high is scary, its also a lot more fun than elementary school. If he can make some friends, he'll do great. Today we walked over and found his locker and walked to his classes. Tomorrow only the 7th graders go for half a day to get used to the school before the older kids come. I like that idea!
I was also terrified of Tanner and school this year. His resource teacher that has been our savior the last two years is gone! I just knew it would be a fight to get him to school again. We went there today to see who his and Carter's teachers were. I went to talk to Tanner's teacher and give her a heads up. She is fantastic! Very outgoing, and took right to Tanner. She told him to pick a secret code that would let her know that he is stressing out. So he puts his hand on his head and that is their secret code. I really hope this helps. I think she'll be great.

Now for some baseball venting. Yes, I'm a little league mom! We wanted to get Carter on a superleague team to build up his game. The team he made is a brand new team, the coaches coached the all star team. And they are horrible! They play the boys all over the place, so the kids never get a position down. Then they don't know where to go. We had boys crashing into each other in the game! Seriously. And some of the kids just goof off. They've only played two games and they were killed both times. Its frustrating because after he made this team we had multiple offers for other teams. If only we'd known, I guess hindsight is 20/20. And I don't know if they kids are rubbing off on him because Carter played the worst he's ever played too the last two games. I hate that its bringing his skill level down!
Ok done with that, keep your fingers crossed that Mondo does good tomorrow and he makes some friends. Lord knows he needs them!

How lucky is Bella's mum to get such a great smile from Jaxson!!

I hope your boys all do well at school this week - sounds like Tanner has a great teacher.

Wishing Mondo a great first day and the other boys too.

So glad you are feeling relaxed Lacey.Peace is such a gift in these lives we live.

Love to you all.

Praying for Mondo as he goes off to jr high! Yeah on Tanner's new teacher. Hoping the boys have a great school year.

I love seeing all the cute smiles that Jax has been giving!

I can't believe that school is already starting! YUCK! Although, our boys still have until after Labor Day. I dread this time of year!

Hope school goes well for all your boys! Junior High is a big step, but according to our son Jacob, it's a lot better than elementary school.

As for Make-A-Wish.....we are just now filling out our wish paperwork that they sent us. We are going to wish for Disney and I'm also going to add that we'd like to be able to go at the same time as you guys, if they can work that out with your M-A-W chapter. Our paperwork said that it could take up to 12 months to have our wish granted. It would be so awesome if we were able to go at the same time!

Hope all goes well with the new year at school, it's always this way till we know our kids are happy and well settled.

Love that smiley pic of Jax, he does look so much better and so alert! Love to you

I hope that Mondo has a great first day! I love that Tanner's teacher had him make a secret code. It sounds like she really "gets" him, right off the bat! I am sorry about Carter's baseball. I know how hard it was to decide where to place him this year.

I hope that changing the vent settings help Jax lungs out. Poor dude needs a break!

And I am jealous that Bella's mom got to hold and snuggle your boy. I love him!

Good luck for school, hope with Tanner's teacher he does great, sounds good so far! And that's neat that the 7th graders start before the big kids! We don't do that here....
Hope Jax gets a better report next time...thinking of you guys...

Hope school goes well this year
