Catching Up...Again...

** Out of order pics at the end. Thanks, iPhone. **

Well, after a monthlong blogging hiatus -- unintentional for the most part -- we're back! We had several weekends at home and even one in North LA. Additionally, we've had a lot going on during the week. We had a number of doctor's visits for Scotty and his high blood pressure, but I think we finally have everything under control. As it turns out, had he not thrown himself into working out after his initial diagnosis, he probably would not have aggravated his apparent carpal tunnel syndrome or damaged a nerve in his leg -- both of which had symptoms that greatly concerned us as we waited to see the neurologist and had tests run. BUT -- as it turns out, everything was not a big deal and was really coincidental, and all apparently led back to overdoing it in the gym. The lesson: just skip the gym. Or maybe just stretch and do low-impact exercises. Whatever floats your boat.

Additionally...BIG NEWS.….… WE GOT AN OFFER ON OUR HOUSE! Woohoo! We're scheduled to close on April 19th and will move into our temporary abode (an apartment) the weekend before. I'm thoroughly looking forward to having access to a pool daily and I know we're going to have so much fun with DS swimming and being cozy in an apt. It's going to be amazing being so much closer to work. Ah-ma-zing! And then we'll take our time finding the perfect home to grow up in. :)

In other news, DS had lots of fun on our last trip to North LA. I had some work-related meetings that Friday, so he stayed down at Gilbert at Sue Sue's while I took care of business. After I got done, I met Rachel and sweet Ahhhhnders (as DS says) and we went to surprise Sue Sue and pick up my boy.

We visited some and David Scott and I got to experience riding a tractor for the first time. He loved it!

Back at Mom's later that weekend, we rode the 4-wheeler and fed the horses whose land adjoins the back acres.

Good times!
