HCG Diet

So, Day 3 of the diet has come to an end and so far all is well. It wasn't as hard as I thought it would be to eat only 500 calories. I am hopeful that I will be busy enough with soccer and working to not think about the fact that I am not eating as much through this next month. I am excited to see if the results come as easily to me as they have to those around me that have done this program. I will post about results as they come in. Wish me luck!!

More than our fair share!

We have definitely had more than our fair share of accidents this month!

Sean fell and hurt his leg playing on our trampoline on Monday, August 3rd. We debated on taking him in to see someone. Even after taking a nap, he would not put any pressure on his leg at all. The InstaCare doctor told me that it looked like it was fractured, but he would have the radiologist look at it closer. I then got a phone call the following Wednesday from the radiologist telling me that it was NOT fractured. So, we removed the splint and he spent the next week and a half crawling around not wanting to put any pressure on it. After 2 weeks, he is still limping a little, but running and playing like normal.

Last night it was Brady's turn. We were at Damon's soccer practice and the other boys had all brought their scooters to play on while Damon practiced. Brady snuck over to Geneva Park which is right behind Suncrest Elementary and was riding his scooter down the hill there. He fell on his arm and wasn't able to come over and tell me for quite a few minutes. Evan finally yelled for me and told me Brady was hurt. Needless to say we left practice early. It was quite swollen when we got home and we debated on going to InstaCare or the ER. After taking X-Rays, the ER doctor said that it was broken and he was going to have to sedate Brady in order to put the bones back in the correct place. He is wearing a splint for 5-7 days and we have an appointment for next Tuesday to get an actual cast put on. Poor kid doesn't get to enjoy our last camping trip up at Starvation this weekend. No more swimming for Brady. Good thing summer is pretty much over.

The only good thing to come of this for Brady is that he will have an excuse to not do too much writing for the first few weeks of school!

I will be happy to not go to another ER, InstaCare or doctor appointment for the rest of the year!! (other than getting the cast on and off!)

Brady's 7!

I feel like we have been celebrating Brady's birthday for 2 weeks now. My family has a LOT of birthdays in July so we decided to go in together on renting out Classic Skating. SO MUCH FUN!! I highly recommend it. It isn't too expensive and it is AWESOME to have it all to yourselves!! So, on the 21st we had all our friends and families come skating. Brady got some great gifts and we all had a great time skating and scootering and we even got to play on the bounce houses that they had there. Here are some pictures of the fun!

Missy, Braxten and Jordyn are my sister's sister in law and neice and nephew. Katie Lyn is my brother's neice. Ruth is my sister in law and the rest are all cousins and my parents grandkids. SOOOO many July birthdays!
On the actual day of Brady's birthday (July 31), we took our little family to Nickelcade to celebrate. Then went home for some cake and ice cream. We had so much fun with our boys.
