"Yes, we did produce a near-perfect republic. But will they keep it? Or will they, in the enjoyment of plenty, lose the memory of freedom? Material abundance without character is the path of destruction"-Thomas Jefferson

This week has been less than exciting. Well, ok, it started out pretty exciting. Sunday we ended up at the hospital for labs and x-rays after Reagan scared us and her doctor half to death by refusing to get out of bed for the entire day (not her personality, or a three year old's personality, AT ALL). She also had a fever and was throwing up and sobbing over stomach pains.

The labs and x-rays came back ok..blood work was a little off, but she was sick...to be expected. By Monday she was feeling much better--just a little stomach pain, but now completely stuffed up, coughing and running a fever. The rest of the week continued in that vein with lots of sleepless nights, breathing treatments and the like. And finally, today, she was well enough to head to playgroup with her friends.

We broke our fast food rule this week week and had fast food--twice. We won't be having it again any time soon. But desperate times call for desperate measures...and I consider getting a little less than three hours of sleep desperate times.

In other important news, Reagan caught the world's largest beetle and we kept it for a day and a half. I'm telling you, this thing was huge. I'll post pictures as soon as I figure out how to get them off of my phone and onto here! We found him in our backyard (which makes me rethink spending time out there!) and I'm convinced a bird must have dropped him as we found him on his back. (When I told my friend that story, she said "Dropped him from where???? The Amazon!??!?!?")

At any rate, I'm happy to report that Daddy and Reagan let him go tonight while I was at the office. Daddy finally convinced Reagan that Mommy Beetle was looking for her baby. Reagan allowed him to be released upon the conditions that Daddy 1-waited for the rain to stop and 2-he was released in a nice patch of grass. Beetle bug apparently didn't care where he was released as he made a beeline for anywhere in the opposite direction of our home!
