It's been a while...

Well it hasn't really but in Amyland it's a long time if there aren't any posts every other day. Things have been relatively quiet here. Ryland is sick (as well as L & T but that's allergies). He has had a high fever for the last 3 days which means waking up in the middle of the night several We went to the doc today and they took blood but the results won't be in until tomorrow so prayers would be much appreciated for a positive outcome. He's really miserable, probably worse than I have ever seen him but he still manages to give a big 4 tooth grin when you look his way.

The boys have been busily working at getting into my hair. They have been very successful! Next week they will be attending an exercise program geared towards their age group. I'm looking forward to it even though it's just an hour on tuesday and thursday. I think that they will have fun. They are also enrolled in a fun sports program that teaches kids about the different sports and also promotes good sportsmanship which is especially important for my little L who thinks that you shouldn't play unless you're sure to win.

I'm busy working on the Newsletter for a group that I belong to. I made a deadline for myself of wednesday and have yet to finish it. I only have one more page left but finding the time to do it with a clingy baby has proved difficult. I've been in a rather blah mood lately since my last good friend is leaving the island on sunday. It's like deja vu from last year at this time. I know I'll be fine though. The Lord got me through it last year and He'll get me through the blah days again. When I look down the street there is nothing but empty houses on either side. It's the time of year for people to leave but I'm shocked at how many on just my street. I would say about 3/4 of the street is either leaving or have already left. Wild. We'll be the veterans on the street and we haven't been in the house for a year yet!

Here are a few websites that I wanted to share:

This one is great for the boys. They got to build their own fish and set them off into a tank. Tyler's got eaten by a shark! You should have seen Logan's face after that happened. You would have thought that something actually DID eat the "robot" fish.

This is a science website where you can test specific topics. It's sort of a digital science project that you can perform online. I'm not much of a science fan but I really enjoyed this website.

This final one has had a lot of hits from our computer since we found it. Not quite sure how they get away with it and we feel a little bit guilty (well I do, Chris doesn't!) for partaking in it. You can actually watch movies online without having to download anything....even movies that are in theaters now!
