Sour Apples

That is the name that Courtney's team decided on today why in line to get soccer pictures done. I have to say they all played there little hearts out today but I am sad in a way since coaching Courtney's team I have to be on the field why they play and also tend to the kiddo's that are out and also tie shoes why on the field. Well, why doing one of those things I missed out seeing my baby make her first goal ever. I didn't know she had made one until I was looking of the score card. My mama said that after Courtney had made the goal and make it back down to the other half of the field that she ran over there and said grandma did you see that goal I made, or something close to that. Don't get me wrong I enjoying being a coach especially on game day but I have decided that after this season I am going back to a sideline mom/coach. Courtney told me she wanted to play in the spring I am hoping that she will do that and maybe even do next fall so Eric can be her coach for once and that way Dezi can have some one else as a coach. Don't get me wrong Eric is a awesome coach but I think it's time Dezi has someone else. 
     I planned on Courtney playing 3 quarters today but she ended up playing 2.5 quarters because it was getting hot out side and also because I could tell that she was starting to breathe a lot harder that normally even when she is at practice. She got up at 6 this morning and did a hour of treatment and she was coughing last night and through out the day today :( .

This evening as I was getting telling her that is was treatment time she was doing this and then gave it to me.

My tummy hurts mommy. Love Courtney I love the arrow that is pointing to her tummy

Doing treatment and of course on her laptop

Need less to say that she was trying to get out of treatment but it didn't work I just turned her vest down a little bit. Lets hope she doesn't cough to much tonight. She will be up early again tomorrow morning to do treatment as we have church but she will get to sleep until 7 instead of 6. Not sure how that girl can still be going at night but once her head hits the pillow she is asleep.

Interested in what everyone else lives like?

Curious to see where others live, but don’t feel comfortable asking?

Want to take a peek into your friend’s home….who lives across the country?

Then hope on over to and join the fun

Quick update on Courtney

Courtney had her first soccer game ever today. Needless to say we all got soak but Courtney never gave up or complained. She ran as fast as her little legs would let her. I am so proud of her and her team even though they lost 11-7 but that's OK they had a great time. Needless to say she took a shower when she got home and ate lunch and then did a hour of treatment.. I love and hate this time of year!!!! Courtney is starting to couch more often so we have bumped up her treatments. We will keep a eye on it and go from there. Why does CF have to rear it's ugly head so soon??? I know there are more lil ones that have it more rough then Courtney but still!!!!!! As I sit here typing this I can hear her cough I guess it's time for a breathing treatment and then dinner and then nebs and vest and then off to bed since we all are going to church in the morning.... On a quick note she has been really good about getting up at 6:30 to do treatments. We let her sleep in a little bit on Friday morning and all I have to say is NEVER AGAIN she had the worse attitude. Have a great weekend or what's left of it.

First couple days of school

Dezi all ready for school

Courtney almost all ready for school

Grandma and Courtney

Wow is all I can say. It's been busy. Courtney is loving school. After school on the first day she told me "mommy we don't really have play time like in kindergarten" so I asked her if that was a good or bad thing and she said "mommy that is a good thing we have more time for learning" Wow does my child love school and her teacher. I am just hoping that she gets the challenge that she needs. Don't get me wrong she still needs to practice writing so her letters don't float. I am wondering if now we should have put her in the Key program which is just advanced. Thursday, Friday and Monday she didn't have a hard time getting up at 6:45 A.m. to do treatment which surprised me. Today well her alarm went off and the lil bugger turned it off and tried to go back to sleep but this mama didn't let her. She loves her teacher and so far I am liking her teacher too we have open house so we will talk and then I will touch base with her most likely on Wednesdays. Courtney's teacher has a lil boy that is a CF carrier and part of me wonders if that is why she was placed with this teacher. Here are some pics from the first day of school.

This was taken a few weekends ago. She had her own small Starbucks and drank it so then she wanted a drink of mine.
It's hard to believe that summer break is officially over. The girls first day of school is tomorrow. This mama is having tons of mixed emotions. I know Courtney will do awesome but when she was in head start it was only a half of day and she had a awesome nurse that I wish would come to her school, last year well all I can say is that I was happy it was only half a day the school nurse wasn't all that and I didn't care for her and it didn't help she could follow the simple things I had asked. This year the school has a new nurse so I am hoping that she is good. We didn't do much over summer break due to money and Eric having to work. That's OK I still think they both enjoyed it. I will post pictures tomorrow of the first day of school. I am still not sure what I am going to do with my time, maybe go back to school or get a part time job...

Courtney 2 weekends ago at IND airport
