Hi Bloggy bloggers! Sorry to disappoint you, but today is not my Mom Kris, it's me Erika...remember me??
How bout now?
Good...great. Let's catch you up.
Well...life is...The exact same. Except I have been putting more photos in albums, frames & on my walls vs my blog upkeep.
The larger frames are awaiting their photos I'm having done of Noah & I (mostly Noah) on La Playa.
I do miss blogging tho. I miss my bloggy friends.
Ran a half marathon with my cousin Jessica. It was not fun. Very windy, like hurricane Erika status I tried naming it that but they said it wasn't really a hurricane & that I was just a wimp. Sure felt like one when I was digesting 7 miles worth of sand from the beach. But it sure was a fun time with my cousin! She is my running hero. She's a machine. I felt good miles 1-10. Mile 10.5 I wanted to call a cab. But I didn't and I finished.
In other news. Noah had his 5 year old check up just before he turned 5... (Sniff)
All is good in his hood. Doc says he is on track to be about 6'6. Ya heard me, 6'6. I am not surprised at all. I'm 5'9 and he is about up to my chest.
At his check up he had to have 5 shots & a tb test. Poor Bubs. I hate that part &... kinda wanna punch the nurse by needle 3. Instinct? Mama bear? We woke up the next day he was vomiting & had a fever I figured that was normal. As the weekend continued his right arm continued to look worse. Swollen, tight, red & tender. I took him to the ER after driving round town discovering not a single urgent care was open.
We got meds he had to take 4 times a day that tasted awful, & I mean AWFUL. So I did what any good mother would do. Bribed him with mounds of candy, new toys & movies. I kept him back from school & me from work for two days & he was up & running in no time.
I went on a hike recently with my friend Jen & we are eager to venture to many more round the likes of here! We really live in such a great location.
Noah turned 5 !!! Still, every year I cry on the eve of his b-day...I asked my Mom when does this stop?? 29? What am I in for?
I had his party at Pump it Up which is so great for kids, they had a blast! And some of the big kids too! I'm pretty sure my brother wants his b-day there next year.
I also had a "tower of tires" that were chocolate donuts. Noah loves him some cars!
These were some of the "big kids" at the party. Good times had by ages 5 & under and 5 & up.
(don't mind the blurry-ness, that is a child running)
Let's see what else.
We had out last hoorah at Disneyland :( Our annual passes expired and no plans to renew them. We took a trip with our good friends.
I started out loathing Dland. But we ended our season pass having grown fond of it. The park is gorgeous, there is lot's to do, it's a lot of walking, and most importantly Noah has a blast every visit. My most favorite trips have been just Noah & I.
We still frequent the park on the reg. And my friend/neighbor Jen's sons play both t-ball & soccer so it's been fun to visit some of their games & cheer them on/prepare for soccer Mom life.
Noah is all registered for Kindergarten & I can't believe that we are venturing into K-6 How did this happen??? I enrolled him for soccer which starts in August so I'm officially a soccer Mom (who drives a Sedan) woo hoo! We can't wait! Speaking of my sedan, Mary Sue is still doing great! She is as a great car & we love her so much...so much so, that we are keeping her until death do us part.
God has been doing some really amazing things in our life. He is faithfully laying out my stepping stones to his will for me as I live my life Christ devoted. It's truly the most fulfilling I have ever felt when I am who I was created to be.
Other than that just living life & loving it. Miss you all
