Poor Deacon... he's spent the past couple of days not feeling well- on Thursday I got a call from Carden that I needed to come get him.  He had been coughing and had a raspy voice, but nothing prepared me for his condition when I picked him up... he was wheezing and having a hard time breathing.  I booked it to Urgent Care where I was told that he probably just "had a cold."... um, yeah- it's not just a cold when my kid can't breathe.  The guy couldn't hear his wheezing... but that was because Deacon's airways were SO tight you, of course, couldn't hear the wheezing.  Anyways- after the breathing treatment Deacon felt SO much better and (surprise surprise) you could hear his wheezing now.  We were sent home with meds and instructions to not return to school until Monday.  Deacon was so sad because the Carden family picnic was Friday night.  So I told him that if he was a good boy on Friday and rested all day we would go to the picnic... I'm so glad we were able to make it because it was so fun.  The kids were all running around having so much fun- Deacon's running around was sorely limited, but he still had a great time.  Zac had a blast too... mainly because Papa and Ms. Tanier were there... and there was food.  What more could he want?

Today (Saturday) we had Deacon's first soccer game of the season... our boys try so hard and have a lot of fun when they're out there.  They may not be the best (to say the least), but they're probably the greatest kids around (though I might be a little biased).  Deacon so badly wanted to be able to play and participate, but he would get on the field and last all of 1 minute before needing to come out.  Hopefully next week proves better for him...

Sorry for the lack of pictures... I'm still without a good lens, so all the pictures I've taken really suck except for a few randoms here and there.
