Bits and Pieces

*Pat caught a bit of a cold over the weekend.  He's now passed it on to me.  Thankfully so far it's just been a sore throat and sneezing for me.  My voice sounds all scratchy though.  I am hoping the rest of this week flies by so I can enjoy a restful weekend.

*Ryan has been so much better this week.  His fits and tantrums have completely subsided.  Sure, we still have the normal 4 year old drama, but I have my good boy back.  I'm not sure if he was just overtired, getting over a sickness we didn't know he had, growing, or something else entirely.  It's so nice to see him happy again.

*Pat changed out of Command yesterday.  It sometimes feels like those 15 months flew by.  I know Pat is a bit sad that his time leading the Soldiers is over.  I feel like we waited for so long for this Command that to now to think it's over feels odd.  I am so proud of my husband though.  I know he did a great job in that position, and I cannot wait to see what comes in the future.

*Speaking of the change of Command, the boys, well more specifically Sean, were not so well behaved for the ceremony.  It didn't help that Pat had us arrive an hour ahead of time, and it was during nap time.  In fact at the part of Pat's speech where he was thanking his wife and talking about his children, I was literally dragging my kids around the side of the building absolutely mortified.  Boys will be boys, I guess.

*The weather is back to sunny and warm.  The weather's been a bit crazy lately.  I'm glad that I can go enjoy the sun and maybe a nice cup of warm tea outside with Sean before we pick up Ryan from school.

I'm glad that Ryan is back to his happy self again :) Those phases are so frustrating, when you don't know what is wrong or how to help them feel calm. And I hope you feel better soon!
