Yesterday was the St. Vincent annual NICU reunion picnic. From 1-4p.m. (it was HOT!) at a park in Zionsville our whole family was invited to go and eat and play and see some of Lexi's NICU nurses. I had no idea what to expect. Wow. Hundreds of people were there. I've never seen so many multiples in my life. It's funny seeing all the triplet and quad strollers rolling around. They had about 8 huge bounce houses which the boys LOVED! Hamburgers, hot dogs, brats. Lots of games and prizes, although Blake and Nick never got out of the bounce houses long enough to do anything else. The best part for me though was to see some of our old nurses. Several weren't there of course because they were working or just not able to come. But we still saw several of our favorites. They all remembered Alexis since she was probably one of their most recent patients. Dr. A was there and it was so nice to see her. She even called me Kendra instead of Mrs. Smith! She asked me to keep her informed of when Alexis has her heart surgery as she may try to stop by the hospital at that time.

Today I talked to our new First Steps OT. She will come for our first OT session on Thursday at 9:30 and it will be our standing appointment every other week. The calendar is filling up fast. Preschool starts September 9 which will be M,W,F mornings. Can't wait to see how we fit in PT because apparently they had to beg and plead for her to take us on since she was already full.

Nicholas started his second week of kindergarten today. I'm so glad he's enjoying himself and is happy to tell me about his day. On every paper he has brought home so far (tracing letters, cutting lines) he has decorated with a drawing of a Transformer. Monster trucks are out. Transformers are IN. Until next week anyway.
