A Summer Update

So obviously I am way behind but instead of trying to catch up I am just going to give a brief overview of what we have been up to and then move on. So, obviously school ended and Isabelle finished kindergarten. In 2 weeks she will be starting first grade and I am really sad she is going to be gone all day. Seth finished his first year of preschool and he loved it. A week after school was out Izzy had her dance recital and we were scheduled to leave for Vegas the next day. But, if you know us, you know we can never go too long without some health crisis. The day before we were supposed to leave I had to take Cooper to the emergency room because he was wheezing really badly. He had gotten Croup (we think) and as usual with him, it always goes straight to his lungs. After another course of steroids and some breathing treatments, we were off to Vegas. Izzy was also suffering from 2 ruptured ear drums from ear infections. Anyway we had fun in Vegas with our family and went to Virgina for a week to visit Paul's family. They were both great trips. My mom came home with us for a few days which was fun as well. Since we have been back we have been trying to enjoy our last few weeks of summer. Izzy did a 2 day cheer camp and a 2 week long theater camp where they practiced and performed Alice in Wonderland. She was so excited because she got to play the part of Alice. She did a great job. Seth has been enjoying his activites, going to the library and playing with his friends. He is really looking forward to his 4th birthday in a few weeks. While in Vegas, Cooper had his 1st birthday. He is getting so big. Cooper is unfortunately on the brink of another asthma attack. He started wheezing and coughing again today. With a few breathing treatments, he is sounding a little better. Well, so much for a short update. Hopefully I'll be a little bit better at updating.
