Sickness and a New Eagle Scout!

Before I get to the fun stuff, I want to start by saying I am so ready for summer. I usually enjoy every season and don't mind how long they stay. But I have been getting sick a lot since I had Sam. The stomach flu had gone though my family like wildfire...starting with our niece Juliet. We didn't seem to catch it! Then out of no where, I had to go to the ER, for the second time since Sam was born, this time for another kidney stone! (So glad my parents live so close!) They told me, I also had a kidney infection. Within the next couple of days, Sam and I both got a head cold...coughing, sneezing, runny noses, the works! (I even had a sexy man voice!) Thinking the worse was over, a week after my stone, I was feeling sick to my stomach. I thought it might just be the McDonald's I had earlier. Nope...I started throwing up. (Which I don't do!) Well, I wasn't the only one, Sam was too. I was so sore, never has my body ached so bad! I couldn't even hold Sam. :( Aaron did such a great job taking care of Sam and I. That night he slept on the floor next to Sam and was up with him till 1:30 even though he had to get up at 4 the next morning to go to work. We are both finally feeling better...knock on wood!

Now, on to a much better story! We are so proud of by brother Andrew for working so hard to receive his Eagle scout award! Our brother Bryant presented him with his award.

Sam did okay. He's never cranky, but choose Andrew's eagle to be the first time! He did sleep though a lot of it though. I only had to step out a couple of times.

Juliet was sitting in front of us and kept sticking her tongue out at me! She so sweet!!

Andrew received his Eagle with his best friend Jake Pugmire.

Sam loved Ruth's earrings!

Andrew was able to say a few words at the end and spoke to Sam. He wants to help support and push Sam to get his Eagle because he had family who helped him. We are so proud of the man Andrew is becoming! Even though we are 10 years apart, Andrew is one of my best friends! (And I  know Aaron feels the same, even though they are 18 years apart) Andrew is just a great kid!! And I know that Sam loves him, and will look up to him.
