Kira is all stuffed up and is being Ms. Fussybutt. Poor baby can't eat or suck on her binky because she can't breathe. I have tried and tried to get the stuff out of her nose but only end up getting a bit here and there. Weird because I can hear it in her nose.

I knew something was up because she was so fussy in the car yesterday when I drove to the dealership for them to fix my car. I had my oil changed and tires rotated last weekend after picking up the girls from camp and after that driving my car above 35mph felt like I was driving in an earthquake LOL! So the whole 40 minuet drive was a nightmare. I finally got her to sleep about 5 minuets away from the dealership (that is 40+ minuets from my house). Then she slept the whole time we were gone which wasn't bad but not at all the norm for her. Usually she will wake up every couple of hours to be fed or held.

Speaking of that stupid dealership I had to wait 2.5 hours for my tires to be balanced! I was beyond livid then after I got done w/that I went to the Walmart that had forgot to give me part of my grocery order the week before and had to stand in line at customer service for 20 minuets TWICE to get the items @@. Then on the way back there was a terrible accident and traffic was rerouted off the highway and the roads were all twisty turny and if it wasn't for the cars ahead of me I would probably still be out there even WITH my navigation in my car-doesn't work that well on new roads which is what these were. I did quickly get over being mad about the rerouting when I saw the accident was a BMW that t-boned a trike motorcycle and just prayed for the riders on the trike. From the damage done to that and how twisted and crunched up the BMW was it couldn't have been good :(.

Fun stuff.

Here are the Super Hero Camp pictures Jake and Paige went to.

Today started out great. I had decided last night that I couldn't keep up with all the work that I had and since Accounting just was not clicking for me I decided that was the class to drop. So this morning when I woke up I signed on and dropped that class.

Then when Kira woke up and gave me a huge grin and even giggled for the first time! I almost started to cry. I was so worried that something was wrong because she rarely smiles and doesn't coo or anything when all the babies about the same age are vocal, smiling and laughing.

I still have some homework to do that I've been avoiding all day so I had better hurry with this and get back to my assignments.

I took the kids for a walk around the neighborhood today and as we were walking through are yard at the end of it we hit a patch of weeds that were pretty tall and all of these grasshopper jumped everywhere and one landed on my head and as I swatted it away it fell down into the carrier so I started to fan my shirt to get it to hop out and it hopped INTO my shirt! I couldn't lift my shirt because Kira was strapped into the Bjorn so I pulled the neck as wide as I could and it hopped out onto Kira's face! So I then swatted it away and the kids and I just started cracking up, well not Kira she just went back to sleep LOL!

Ten hours to go until I pick up my three older girls. I didn't think that I would miss them as much as I have. This was their first time at camp and the very first time that I wasn't able to talk to them when they were away-the way the camp is set up they are only able to call if they are sick or hurt otherwise kids would be calling home all the time and it would disrupt the other campers and activities. I am pretty bummed that I sent them to camp with tons of postcards to send home and didn't get even one back from them :(. Watch I'll get like 12 postcards from them tomorrow after they are already home LOL. I sent them each with disposable cameras so I can't wait to see what they captured on them!

Today Paige and Jake had superhero day at karate and when I upload the pics from that I'll post some here. For now here are some from the past month.
