Family Photos

I got an e-mail from our photographer that her website is not working today. It should be up and running again tomorrow, so be sure to check again for our pictures at http://www.amtportraitphotos.com/. In the meantime, we did snap a few shots when we got home, and I can share those here. Unfortunately, Charley was done with posing for the day, so we didn't get anymore of him. We are also trying to re-schedule another sitting with her, since we were cut short by a thunderstorm.

Hope you enjoy the pictures!

Pictures from Art Camp

Morgan's First Trip to the Doc in the Box

It has been such a rough week!
Morgan started to make up her art camp (that she was supposed to be taking last week, but couldn't due to a staph infection) on Wednesday. At about 11:45, the teacher called to tell me Morgan had slammed her pinky finger in a door, and I should come pick her up. After taking one look at it, I called her doctor, who of course, was out of the office. I ran her up to the closest clinic I could find, and they got us right in--maybe because Morgan was screaming her head off, and scaring a few of the other kids in the waiting room! After a few minutes, the doctor told us that he basically needed to re-insert the nail back into her finger. I'll leave out the details, but suffice it to say it was NOT a pretty process! She was a very brave little girl, and we decided a shake from Sonic was in order for the trip home. Other than having a band-aid on her finger for the next ten days, and the fact that her fingernail will fall off in 3-4 weeks, it'll eventually grow back, and all will be well. Whew!
This may be the last art camp we ever sign up for!

Making the Most of a "Staphy" Situation

We took Morgan to the doctor Wednesday morning with a suspicious rash, only to find out she had a staph infection. She had to get 2 shots of an antibiotic, and they told us we needed to stay home for the next two days. Trying to make the best of our situation, we spent the days painting, building with blocks, and having a tea party with mom's real china.

She is on the mend, slowly but surely. We went to the doctor twice last week, and have another follow up appointment on Tuesday to make sure everything is clearing up okay, so keep her in your prayers!

Just Trying to Beat the Heat

With temperatures running at or near 95 and a heat index of 105, we've been trying to fill our days this week with indoor activities. Morgan's friend Angelena came over for a playdate this morning, and then we headed out to the gym this afternoon. Yes, I finally broke down and joined the gym (www.ecofitnessgym.com). They offer all kinds of classes from cardio to pilates to yoga, and the childcare facility is awesome! We've been going at least 3 times a week for the past month, however I am still waiting for my Jennifer Garner body to start showing!!! Good thing I signed up for a year!

Other than that, there's not much else going on. We're gearing up to head to Easley on Friday around noon. Our niece will be turning 12 on Saturday, and we're planning to stop in for a visit with Keith's Papa Harold. Hope everyone has a great weekend, and we'll try and post some Easley photos next week!

In the interest of time, I'll let the pictures speak for themselves. Happy Fourth of July!
