Jane was sad to say goodbye.

The preschool was wonderful and they put on a nice program that had the big and little students in tears.

They will all miss each other.

A Real Boy

You know the Pinocchio story. Well with stitches last month and a broken arm two weeks ago... Charlie is now a real boy.He tripped his coach at soccer practice and his coach fell on him.

He broke both bones in his arm. The brake was clean and should heal nicely.

As I was helping him get dressed this morning he said,
"I really like this broken arm thing."
It's true, he loves the attention and help that he is getting at home and school.

That's All Folks

Maybe it's a sign.

My fathers initials are MJC.

My husbands initials are MJC

Maggie, Jane and Charlie are my own MJC.

All of our children have come with the help of Doctors and Nurses. After figuring out what we needed, they all came on the first or second try. I guess that gave me a false sense of security. We've tried for months to have another child. Each month taking a step further then before. More time consuming, more money, mores procedures, more pills, more shots, more pounds, more ultra sounds, more shuffling of my children and schedule and a lot more driving. It's been exhausting. Nothing worked.
I wanted a couple more.

I'm sad about it.

So the bright side is that I have three kids that we love. We are going to look forward to a lot of great memory making.
