Schumacher 365 Week #50


Day 349/365


While attending the Mrs. Claus story time at the mall Elsie took a good fall and had a giant goose egg on her forehead. I asked for first aid immediately and due to the nature of the fall and her forehead looking like it was going to burst open at any moment I asked them to call EMT’s. This is not our first rodeo with Elsie and a head wound, but they are scary each time. She ended up being just fine and returned to her normal self after a good nap. She definitely keeps us on our toes.

Day 350/365


Just some Christmas crafting. Elsie thought it was so great we got to paint at home (clearly a rare occurrence).

Day 351/365


Abbott started scooting/crawling on his belly a little bit more. He found the Christmas tree and thought the tree skirt tasted so good.

Day 352/365


Elsie had a cardiology follow-up appointment in Seattle. The doctor wasn’t able to hear her heart murmur any longer so they took her back for an ultrasound to confirm it was closed up. Unfortunately it was not closed, but it is so small they are still not worried about it. We will follow up again in 2-3 years for them to do a full check up. We are so thankful for the wonderful cardiologist we have been seeing since she was 5 months old. She is reassuring and full of knowledge.

Day 353/365


Just a little late night newsletter writing. A perk of being the president at Elsie’s coop.

Day 354/365


We had a weekend without plans so we decided to throw the kids in the car and visit our old stomping grounds. It had been a few years since we visited Bellingham and while some things have changed many haven’t. It was fun to walk the campus with the kids and visit Fairhaven dorms where it all began.

Day 355/365


We had our annual Friends Dinner in December at our house this year. Unfortunately only the Hempelmanns were able to make it. We thought it would be a good idea to decorate gingerbread houses with the kids. Wow…it was interesting, but tons of fun. The houses looked great and I believe Julie and Scott left with one wired little boy.
