Playing Catch Up

So apparently I really stink at keeping up with a blog. Or maybe the stress from the wedding and school and a few other things you'll find out about are what have kept me away. I think I'll blame it on that. Yes. That way I don't feel like such a blogging failure.

A lot has happened over the past few months that I would like to share so for the next few posts I will be playing major catch up. I also have a ton of pictures so bear with me.
~First off, we got MARRIED!!!! And went on a short honeymoon before I had to be back at school and Jason had to be back at work. Pictures to come (I have a few but am still waiting on the CD that has the majority of them).
~Our 4 year old turned into a big 5 year old back in May and celebrated with an "Angry Birds" themed birthday party.
~We were lucky enough to have Jason's younger son, Michael, visit us twice this summer.
~We took a vacation to Nevada to visit family for the 4th of July. Don't worry, I've planned a few posts to elaborate on these summer adventures.

Most recently, Joey started Kindergarten!

I can't believe this little guy I met over three years ago is in Kindergarten.

Day Out with Thomas 2010
Labor Day 2010

 I mean, this is all day school we're talking about. He even takes his lunch. This is such a big change from preschool to kinder, for both parents and child. Poor kid is worn out every night and even asks to go to bed! Of course that could have something to do with fighting to not get sick.
The Friday before school started Jason and I woke up about 2 am to a very sick little guy throwing up all over our bedroom carpet. Can you say apartment nightmare? Well it continues.... Joey was throwing up every few hours the rest of the morning until about 8 or 9. Needless to say Jason and I didn't get much sleep after that first one. I ended up staying home from class so Jason could go to work. Joey ended up running a fever that afternoon as well and could hardly keep any food down. By the next morning he was fine and then Sunday evening he walked in his Nana's (my mom) kitchen and once again threw up. Out of nowhere. And minutes later he was perfectly fine again. I still don't know what in the heck happened there.
Now we are fighting a runny nose and allergies. Between all the germy kids at school and the stuff in the air it seems to be a loosing battle. All in the first week of school. But Joey is enjoying getting to know his new classmates and he really seems to like his teacher. I'm looking forward to hearing all of his stories from school and watching him grow. His personality has opened up so much in the past year.
Oh, and his has his first loose tooth! Still waiting to see that cute "missing tooth" smile.

Hoping everyone had a fantastic first week back at school and here are a few pictures from our summer to hold you off until I get around to posting the rest of them.
