The Week in Review.....Working Backward

We have had quite a week, to be sure! But since I foolishly loaded the photos in reverse order, I respectfully ask you to go to the end of this post and read backward. Oh, and if you have serious issues with viewing injuries, there is one photo you may want to bypass quickly!

And this is the gash while at the doctor's office. It's the top red oval. She did really well and never felt the shots they gave her. Clay's parents came over to help Jacob make supper so I could get the groceries. Then the last photo above is the cookie bouquet that Cytec sent to the kids. it was so cute! We also got blessed with 2 large bags of clothes for the kids from a great family at church!--Gotta run, my A/C repair guy is here! yea!

and Jacob bowling.....................When we finished bowling we headed to WalMart for shopping, but as we were searching for some shorts, Jordan and Elizabeth tripped over each other and fell. Liz hit her head on a clothing table and got an inch long, half inch deep gash. So instead of getting food, we headed to the pediatricians where Elizabeth got 3 stitches. Jordan was so worried it was his fault that he cried all the way saying, "what if they can't fix her head and it's broken forever????!!" "Will Lizzie be ok, Mommy??!! I didn't mean to hurt her!" (It was so sad and touching..)

and Emily....
and Elizabeth....
And this is Jordan bowling.

Still, we decided to go bowling on tuesday afternoon before heading to the grocery store. This is Kimberly's first time to bowl. She LOVED it!

These are flowers sent by Cytec, since they appreciate families of the workers during this time. These came Saturday. By Sunday we were too hot at home so we spent the night at my parent's house and Monday night we stayed at Clay's parents' house. But a dear friend called early tuesday to offer a window unit for the bedroom. We accepted and it is wonderful!

But When Friday dawned we lost all A/C and decided to go buy a pool since the repair company couldn't come until the following Wednesday (which is today--and they will be here in the next few hours). So this is pool fun, which has occurred every day!

This one is Emily's based on vacation art, but with lots of acrylic glitter glaze.

This one is mine--based on the artwork from our vacation rental this year.

The ones below are Kimberly's and Elizabeth's art work.

Ok, here we are going backward thru the week.....As you probably know MCS is in CA doing strike coverage so the homefront has been under the management of the assistant CEO. And the "week" I am describing starts on Thursday, June 4th. Above you will see 3 paintings we did during art time.
