Alexander woke up on Tuesday morning like this:
If you think Alexander looks bad, you should see the other guy:
That's right, folks. D. E. D. Dead. Here's how it went down . . .
Late afternoon on Sunday, Jeffery and Alexander were setting up the pool. Jeff had already blown up the ring and was filling up the pool when Alexander came outside. Of course, Alexander wanted to hold the hose, and that was okay.
Jeff watched, to make sure that Alexander kept the hose directed at the pool.
Meanwhile, Isabel was showing mommy her superb strength by getting up on her hands and knees - she's so close!
And while Alexander was outside with Jeff, a mosquito landed on his forehead and bit him! His first mosquito bite. I should have been more observant - Alexander was itching the bite quite a bit that evening.
The next day, Alexander woke up from his nap with this:
And yesterday morning, Alexander woke up with his eye like the first picture up on the top. He wasn't complaining or anything, but most of the day he couldn't see anything, it's swollen shut. This morning is the same. We have an appointment at Early Words this morning, to assess his speech (we need to get him to say more than one word at a time, and Early Words will teach us how to help him with that), so I hope his eye doesn't hinder him at all.
Anyhoo. On Saturday it was Jeffery's 30th birthday, and he went golfing during the day with his friend, Paul; and we went to Tucker's Marketplace with a bunch of friends for dinner. That was a good day.
On Sunday, it was Father's Day; it was also the one day of the year that Church on the Rock baptizes those who wish to be baptized. I think there was 12 people, but I could be wrong. We went down to LaFortune Park in Caledonia, and the church family had a barbecue and fellowship and baptisms! That was also a good day.
Yesterday was the Year End picnic with the Early Year Centre. We went down to Gage Park and had snacks, played in the water, listened to some performers, saw Clifford the dog, and played with bubbles. There were lots of kids there! Alexander and Isabel had a good time, which is what counts.
And that was all for the week! Cheerio!
