I'm pretty sure it has been a very long time since I have so enthusiastically welcomed a new week.  Last week was difficult to say the least starting with Monday and a trip to Acute Care for one vomiting mess of a baby boy.  This was of course the start of more messes throughout the week as everyone but Samuel got the flu bug and the one who started it all (Thaddeus) finally got over it yesterday.  Then as it would happen Thaddeus fell and sliced the tip of his finger necessitating a trip to Urgent Care to see if he needed stitches. Fortunately he didn't however it is a very deep wound that will take a week to heal and he can't go outside and play in the dirt or play in dirty water (ie pools and lakes).  Of course he proceeded to throw up as soon as we got home and honestly I almost turned around and drove straight to the ER to demand that they take him for the night for observation.  Seriously, it was a hard, hard week.

Fortunately the week started afresh yesterday and for that I am decidedly happy about that.  This week is gonna be big what with Samuel starting 1st grade and us getting back into our fall routine.  I sure hope you've enjoyed the lovely pictures and that they'll get you through until Friday when Shannon will have her weekend wishes up for us to reflect on the beauty of the weekend ahead.


So what is on your mind this Monday?  Are you happy for the new week or wishing for a longer weekend?  I'm in the mood to chat today so leave me a comment and let's get this week started!
