The problem with blogging is that you then have to go back and update. For example, the date Mike and I were going to have became a trio after Jake got stung by a bee! This was his first bee sting ever. We went to Chili's and Jake actually fell asleep on the 5 minute ride home (Benedryl). The good news is, before yesterday, Jake was pretty sure if he ever got stung by a bee it would kill him. He definitely played it up pretty well last night, but he now knows it's not the end of the world to get stung.
He is currently outside with his baseball glove and hat waiting for his "building school" neighbor to come out and play on this first day of "building school summer vacation". I was going to facebook that, but then I thought it might look a little too stereotypical that the poor homeschooled kid has been waiting all year for his friend to be home. The truth of it is the sweet building school friend has only ever had his cousin and Jake over to play in the six years that we've lived here. Jake on the other hand, has a homeschooled bff coming over later today. Part of why he's so eager to play baseball is that the game was cut short last night by the bee sting (and the trip to Chili's). When we got home with sleeping Jake, said neighbor and cousin were hoping he'd be ready to play some more, but instead, he needed to be carried up to bed.
In other news, I downloaded two books to my e-reader. This could get to be an expensive habit because it is so easy! With one click (and a registered credit card) you can be reading in seconds!! DAN-GER-OUS!!
