Easter Preparations and More!

This weekend we kicked off the countdown to Easter with "Breakfast with the Bunny" on Saturday and dyeing eggs on Sunday. For the first time EVER, Connie climbed up onto a costumed character's lap with NO FEAR! He was excited to do it and even had a hard time patiently waiting his turn. Such a change in our boy, for sure.

He's also ridden the school bus to school twice. We started him on Tuesday of last week, thinking he'd start riding it all three days of the week that he attends. However, the bus company called and said they'd added students to his route making his bus ride each way over 51 minutes long! On Fridays it's less than 25 minutes, which is a lot more appropriate for a three year old. We just are taking him and picking him up on T/TH but since he likes it and it's a good experience for him we are keeping him on the bus on Fridays.

Connie has a dentist appointment in the morning. It will be his first appointment where they will actually do a cleaning and full check-up. Because of his heart and the fact that he has artificial material in there, he will be pre- and post-medicated with antibiotics. This is to prevent an infection getting into the heart known as bacterial endocarditis. Please keep him in your prayers so that he will not be scared of the dentist and that the antibiotics will do their job in preventing this possible complication.

Greg hooked up a little computer at the student desk we have and after only one lesson on working the touchpad mouse, Connie mastered it! He's been spending some of these past couple of rainy days perfecting his skills on Curious George and Super Why games. He's such a techno kid!
