In stitches. Again.

Boys will be boys is our theme this week with Jax getting his third round of stitches on his face. Why always his face? 

The school called me Monday saying he had hit his forehead on a shelf and they wanted me to come in since they thought he probably needed stitches. Sure enough, he got a tiny cut, but it was deep, so we went in to get stitched up. Jax was cool as a cucumber and never even cried hitting his head I guess. But I think I worked up his anxiety when we were in the waiting room by talking about how he'll probably get a quick shot before the stitches. By the time they brought him in the procedure room, we had 5 of us holding him down to get numbed up - he was not happy! But he was completely fine during the actual stitching. All is good now and I need to get him back in by the weekend to get the stitches out. I'm praying it doesn't leave too much of a mark since it's right in the middle of his face. ((sigh))

We attended a big basketball party for the end of the Upward Basketball league, some more swimming and also some baseball camp, so it was a busy weekend. The boys also got to experience Palm Sunday at church and they have a bit better grasp this year of what Easter is really about.

Jay and I were able to meet up with the other basketball coaches and their wives Saturday night for a bit, and they had some funny stories. They're also the parents to boys in our boy's school and had retold the story of a kindergarten field trip where this dad was chaperoning and a bit nervous to keep track of his four assigned boys. He warned them to NOT MOVE as he grabbed some paperwork and when he turned around, he saw Jax at the water fountain. He rushed over to him and grabbed his arm very angry telling him he told him to NOT MOVE. Well... it was Brady from the other class who just looked at him with an "f-you" face when the teacher rushed over to explain he was a twin from another class... we were laughing pretty hard. He said he felt so bad and I said the only thing about that story that bugs me is the thought of my short kindergartner using the water fountain unattended and probably binging home the flu :)

Apparently the boys both had red shirts on that day. Oops.

So, we're finishing up this short week of school and not looking forward to the crud weather that looks like it will be around for awhile. The boys start spring break Friday, and we'll run up north for the day Sunday for Easter, but otherwise I've been trying to plan a week of something fun for them. I've got extra swim lessons set up and a museum day planned. I was hoping to work in the yard and let them run around a bit, but we'll see how the weather holds up.

Looking pleased as we wait at the doctor's office.

Was not pleased getting the numbing shot...
