Quick Update

Not much to report lately. Sorry it's been awhile since there's been an update on how Connie's doing. We've been winding down the summer mostly indoors, unfortunately, due to the high heat and humidity. We've taken a couple trips to the local pool and of course been swimming in the little pool in back too. We're really looking forward to school starting. Connie starts preschool up again next Wednesday. That is also Mary Kathleen's first day of Kindergarten. Celeste will be entering 4th grade on Monday.

Health-wise, Connie has been a bit off for the last month. He had a virus of some sort starting in mid-July. He got like he normally gets when he's not feeling right-whiny and lethargic and not sleeping well. We rode the "Is it his heart or just an illness?" roller coaster for awhile. Then he got a rash and low grade fever. His rash finally improved a week or so ago. Yesterday, a new rash started and he can't stop scratching. His pediatrician gave him some prescription antihistamine and cream for it today and we'll see how that works.

Milestone-wise, he's just conquered using the potty! He's doing so well and we are very proud. Of course the week he started potty training our washer went out, but he's done so well it hasn't mattered!

I love the pictures. Connie looks adorable with his little grumpy face. Too cute. Crazy summer is almost over and back to school. Thanks for the updates.
