a week to go, and a week behind us

in less than a week we will have a new baby girl in the mix of our eargle family! june 1 is fast approaching and the boys & i are getting super excited (anxious) about our new family member making her big debut. our bags are packed and we'll soon be on our way (hopefully with an agreed on name by daddy & momma too)! this will be a very busy week, if i can get past the horrible stuffy head that has set in and stomach virus that keeps visiting me, and one that will go i'm sure at warp speed. hope to be sharing lots of pictures with you next week and following to introduce you to our new daughter.

our past week had a few highlights of mention too.
  • alan headed to alabama for a business trip for three days. he was quite nervous that the baby would get into motion and choose to enter the world while he was away, but thankfully she held off. he had extreme plane delays on friday night due to horrible thunder storms, so wilhelm & i both gave up on waiting up for him even though we gave it our best effort.
  • when daddy was away wilhelm had his last day of preschool. he and i both will miss his tuesday and thursday mornings at school, but hopefully we'll have lots of playdates with school friends and august will be here before we know it, when he will start a new school for three days each week. here is our pint-size, live-in, clown's picture on his last day of school.
  • after helping alan's younger brother move into his new apartment we headed to the movies. taking a trip to the movie theater is a favorite treat of alan & wilhelm's so we headed to matinee showing of Shrek: The Final Chapter. We all found ourselves a bit disappointed. The entire movie was quite dark, a little scary for wilhelm and not filled with many funny moments for alan & i. The main message of the movie was very adult focused rather than kid focused, which might have been the intention. As a fan of the cartoon series we were a little disappointed with the last installment. But the boys did enjoy the popcorn. We'll be looking forward to our local theater's FREE summer children's movie series and Toy Story coming out in June, those will suite wilhelm's fancy.
