Our little piggy bank!

Its been a while since I've had time to sit down and blog but I have to back up a few weeks and include a story about our little piggy bank!

Two weeks ago I was getting ready for an interview when Collin comes to me saying he has something in his mouth. Well I look thinking its a piece of hair or something but don't see anything, I told him he was fine and told him to go play. He continues to tell me something is in his mouth but won't tell me what, I couldn't see anything so I just left him alone for a while. He then lays on the floor with his blankie and I thought this isn't like him, something really must be wrong. Finally I hear him mummble "I can't get daddy's monies out". That's when I start putting it all together, he had money earlier and I bet he put it in his mouth! When I tell him I have to call the doctor and he starts crying "no, I don't have daddy's monies". Okay so did he or didn't he put money in his mouth. I call the doctors office and of course they want me to bring him in, although I was concerned about my child I'm also thinking really, does this have to happen today, I have an interview! We get him to the clinic and get an x-ray and sure enough he swallowed a coin. After waiting a week for the coin to come out I call the clinic again to say we haven't seen anything. Another x-ray was done and it was gone so it's still a mystery what he actually swallowed (quarter, dime, nickel or penny?) The good new is I still made it to my interview and got the job (teaching 3rd grade math).

Fishing with the Rau's

For the kids birthday Uncle Dane and Aunt Melonie bought the kids fishing poles and took them fishing for the first time. It was fun to watch their excitement as they caught several fish.
