Beautiful Weather in Tennessee

I'm loving this weather were having this weekend in Tennessee. I would love for it to stay like this year round. We have had way too much rain in the past two weeks so sunshine is great. It has gotten me into the fall mood this weekend and I've decorated the inside of my house. I haven't done anything outside other than changing my wreaths out. We have an arts and crafts festival that comes once a year to Reelfoot Lake so I'm waiting to buy some new things for the yard. October is a good yet hard month for us. Dylan's birthday is Oct 19 and he would be turning 9. You can't keep from imagining how life would be now. I should have Bryce 12, Dylan 9 & Rylyn 4. I would have a house full of boys..and I wouldn't have changed it for the world. I hope everyone has had beautiful weather like we did here. I'll try and post some new pictures soon. I forget to take pictures most of the

My son is sick!

I have a sick boy tonight..It started after his ball tryouts yesterday. I could tell when he was at practice something just wasn't right. When we got home he was complaining about being dizzy but I thought it was just practice. It had lasted for over 3 hours..Then his daddy felt his head and it was warm. I took his temp and it was 99.8..So I gave him some Tylenol and it went down. When he got up this morning for school he felt fine. I told him in case he didn't feel good to call me at work today. He never called so I thought that was good. My mom picked him up from school and called me at work saying he was warm. I told her to bring him on to my work and I would take him to urgent care when I got off at 5 just to be on the safe side. His face was bright red and blood shot eyes. I felt him and he was on FIRE... We went on to the Dr and I had my friend there go ahead and take his temp. It was at 102.9..Poor baby was HOT..They done a nose swab then a strep test and they were both negative. So then it was time to take some blood...OH NO...he started freaking rarely go to the Dr so he hasn't had to have blood taken too much. But he did fine..They finally decided he has the FLU....So were secluded in doors for several days now and no school until he's fever free for 24hrs...I just now thought he was asleep in my lap then he said I misspelled a word.haha...He's reading this while I type..I sure do LOVE my big man!!!!! Just keep us in your prayers that his fever will stay down and that we don't get it too!

Weekend Plans

Happy Thursday...That means it's one day closer to FRIDAY!...No plans for us this weekend other than a baseball tryout for Bryce. He plays travel ball and one of the bigger travel ball teams have 3 openings. So this weekend he gets to tryout to see if he makes it. I think he's a great baseball player but I'm a little biased team he's trying out for is mostly 13 yr old boys and Bryce just turned 12 so he may not be good enough just yet but I will keep my fingers crossed. Travel ball is very popular here and if you don't play it now it's harder in High School to play ball there. So were preparing for HS ball. I still can't believe it's that close...He's one of the younger boys in his grade. He just started 7th grade this year. Our school here goes year round. They don't have much of a summer but they get off 1-2 weeks every 6-8 weeks. So it's not that bad. We've gotten use to it. Anyway....I hope everyone has a good and safe weekend!
