By the way, I plan to resume with my Wednesday series of being the wife on the sidelines as my husband ungoes gastric sleeve surgery. Since the surgery is so recent in my mind, I'll probably "skip" a few steps and recap the surgery experience this week, and then go back and write more about some of the steps it took to get to the surgery.
Evan spent the rest of the evening gluing pieces to his board. We had to take a small break in there to go out to the soccer fields and pick up trash. It was our team's turn to do it, but we were notified at the last minute. Only us and one other family showed up. The seven of us wandered the field with trash bags and picked up a bit of trash. Luckily, the fields weren't too littered.
After we got home, I cooked while Evan finished his project. The glue got the best of him and he almost ended up in tears, but it all worked out. Science fair is on Thursday, so I have to get that ready (since I'm in charge of it).
I'm not quite ready to jump back into the regular routine of school and soccer and life, but Monday is here. Eric will be home for three weeks. He is healing well, but is going to need time to fully recover and figure out his food. It's always weird to head off to school when he's home.
