Have you noticed Tim has been in a lot more photos...after a rough couple of months he finally started an easier rotation (because he'll be gone so much interviewing for fellowship)...but anyway, it's been so nice having him have some better hours and some weekends off.
On Labor Day our dear friends the Gibbons came over to swim and BBQ. It was low key but so fun!
Random fun and errands with Henry while the sisters are at school.
Tim left for his first round of neonatology fellowship interviews! He first went to Mayo in Rochester, MN and then headed down to Children's Mercy in Kansas City, MO. Both interviews went really well. It is going to be so interesting to watch interview season unfold. We feel so lucky. Tim has received so many invitations to interview. It's pretty excited to be at the point. Preparing for this final round of medical training. Before med school even started Tim said he wanted to be a neonatologist. It's pretty awesome to me that it actually stuck. There were a few specialties that intrigued him and had him rethink but none lasted very long. The next 2 months are going to be jammed packed with Tim traveling all across the country!
Henry loves this little robot cat that Millie got as a gift once upon a time. He always gets right down in front of it. It's so cute.
Millie got to take home George, the preschool stuffed animal friend. Millie had so much fun brining George on all our adventures this week!
Henry at the library. Him and Millie just adore this strange dragon statue at the entrance.
One of the nights that Tim was away, Kate woke up with a bad dream. I ended up letting her snuggle in with me.
Soaking up the sun at the splash pad. Yep, it's still like 106 degrees here!
Got a text Friday morning from Kate's BFF Ellis' mom reminding Kate to wear her friendship bracelet. Apparently Kate and Ellis planned to match Friday morning. When I asked Kate she said, "Of course we are matching today! We've got it all planned mom!"
Friday morning Millie, Henry and I headed to the airport to pick up Grandma B who was so kind to offer to come take care of the the kids while Tim and I went on our first vacation away from the kids ever! We actually had a pretty stressful week... for months we've had this awesome trip planned to Florida. Enter Hurricane Irma. We were actually set to arrive Saturday night right when Irma was supposed to make landfall. So bummed to not be able to go but not wanting to fly into a disaster zone we quickly started making new plans and working on getting refunds on our flights and hotels etc. Some were really easy to work with others not so much. At least not until our flights finally got cancelled. We ended up making plans to head to SoCal and had a fabulous vacation (I'll be posted on it soon).
We all enjoyed hanging on with Grandma and fortunately Henry immediately warmed up to her. Whew! I was so worried. But he did amazing.
