Meme, road trip and Henry at nursery school

Rob's grandmother, Meme, has not been feeling well. On Wednesday night she was rushed to the hospital because she could not catch her breath. Rob and I talked it over and decided that Rob should go see her. When I mentioned it to Igor he said he wanted to go too.

This week Igor has gone to Ms. Joya's summer camp. When we arrived at camp I mentioned to Ms. Joya that Igor might not be there on Friday. Igor looked up and said, "I'm not going with dad, I'm coming here tomorrow." I thought to myself- Really? And then I knew why Igor wanted to go to be at camp on Friday. It's his favorite snack day- Corn, Noodles, butter and cheese. My boy has his priorities! ha

When I got home I packed a bag for Igor and Rob. Rob picked up Igor from camp then drove several hours to the hospital. Meme needs to have surgery but her heart needs to be in rhythm first. I hope to get more information later today on her condition.

Yesterday afternoon Henry and I went to the park. I thought there would be lots of children for him to play with but we were the only ones there. As we were leaving I noticed some money on the ground. I picked it up - it was $11. Normally, I would have asked the people around us if they had lost some cash but there was no one there. We rarely eat out so I decided that Henry and I would have a dinner date together since Rob and Igor were gone. We went to the local Mexican place for dinner. The food is so good! Our bill was $10.74- perfect!

This morning I mentioned to Henry that he would be going to Ms. Joya's for camp. Henry got a huge grin on his face, ran to his shoes as he was saying - lego, lego!! (let's go). I mentioned to Henry that he needed to get dressed AND eat breakfast first.

Henry has been to Ms. Joya's many times but only for quick visits or to drop off Igor. Today is the first day he will stay all morning without me! This will be a good test to see if he is ready for Nursery School in the fall.

The first thing Henry did when he arrived at Ms. Joya's was get in the bunny's cage so he could feed them parsley.

Then he played on the swing.

As I was leaving he was running to the baby pool to play with the other children. I think he is more than ready for nursery school. sniff, sniff...

How cute!!! I feel the "sniff, sniff", though! What a big boy Henry is growing into! Thank you for reminding me that these days are fleeting and happen only one time around :)

Love to you!
