The Not So Happy Weekend

Our weekend turned out to be a not so happy one. The weekend started out with us having to take our sweet little kitten to the vet. She had been losing a lot of weight, had stopped eating and looked very ill. As it turned out, she was indeed very sick, and we had to let her go. She was diagnosed with FIV(which is a Feline Immune Disease) and is incurable. We all had a hard time with this news. She was such a sweet cat and absolutely adored the kids. She would make her rounds every night sleeping for a few hours with each one of the kiddos. She was the type of cat that allowed the kids to dress her up and push her around in the baby stroller. She was just a wonderful family cat, and we will miss her.
On a not so sad note, we sent Nolan to a church camp with lots of jr high kids from our church. He was super excited to be going! This whole week, they will be building new cabins and doing service projects for a camp. He was "itching" to get his hands on tools and build. In addition, there are plans for the kids to spend some fun time on the lake and plenty of devotional and bible study too. It sounded as if they will have plenty to keep them busy. We are a little sad because we miss our Nolan or "Molie" as Mia calls him. Mia and Levi are counting down "their sleeps" as they anxiously await his return. We pray that he has a wonderful and safe time this week.
That about sums up our not so fun weekend. Mom continues to work on getting school ready to start next Monday, and the kids will spend their last week of summer playing and just being kids. I think they are actually ready to start school as they are "kinda bored". We are super excited that we will be taking a break 2 weeks into school for our family vacation to the beach. ...only 19 more days until VACATION!!!!
