Lyme Disease has hit!

Our daughter, Sydney, complained of a headache for several days last week. She NEVER complains of having a headache. Then on Friday she woke up with a stiff and sore neck. I took her to the doctor who then tested her for strep throat. The test came back negative. Our final step was to take her to have blood drawn.

We were informed yesterday that she has Lyme Disease -- all this before going on vacation!! Lyme Disease is almost like a common cold where we live, but I thought that perhaps we could avoid this terrible illness while living here. So she will be on a 28 day course of Ceftin. It's all we can do to get her to choke this medicine down. She really, REALLY hates it but has trouble swallowing pills.

Our younger son, Luke, had Ehrlichiosis in November this past year and was also treated for Lyme -- just in case. So it seems that we will have first hand experience with what ticks can do!!

We have more birds!

Our previous birds from the bird's nest on my front door wreath died several weeks ago. We think that it got too cold for them one night and that the mother was not there keeping them warm.

However, we have three bird's nests underneath our deck. During a recent wind and thunderstorm, one of the nests must have blown down with the baby birds inside. There had been four birds but we only found two birds on the ground this past Saturday. After doing a little research, we found out that we could gently pick the baby birds up and place them back in a nest. So we used one of the empty nests under the deck to place the baby birds in. Looks like their mother has returned and is still taking care of them. This is a picture of what they were doing after we put them back in the nest. I think they thought we were going to feed them too!

Uppercase Living Father's Day Project Party

Well, I recently reached one of my goals after being with Uppercase Living for only 14 months. I just promoted to Director on June 1st! Woo hoo! I have an awesome team of ladies -- 14 in my downline and 21 ladies overall. Can't wait until convention in Minneapolis. It's coming up July 7th-10th!

I recently tried a Project Party at my home and it went really well. We used one of my favorite Uppercase Living expressions, "Any Man Can Be a Father, but it Takes Someone Special To Be a Dad" to make this great gift for our husbands. My childrens' pictures hang from this particular piece. We had lots of fun and I must say that the finished result is wonderful!
