Max's first day of school

I really should tell you about the night before the first day of school. I was all set to do a fun back to school dinner and all that, but instead It was spent in the emergency room with Max. For a couple of days Max had been complaining about his tummy hurting and how it hurt to breathe. On day 3 I took him to the Doctors and he said, "If he were my child I would take him to the ER." Really you would? Even if your life is spent at hospitals and you have a really high copay?
I will say Max is not dramatic child. If this were Ollie, I would totally question this.
So off we went. Back to school dinner ended up being pizza in the car which Max didn't even eat.
Long story short....he's OK. The Doctors are thinking a couples things happened, nothing life threatening, so we were discharged at 11.

I was thinking he was going to miss the first day of school. I tried to wake him and he didn't even flinch. But when I got back from taking Ollie, he was up and wanting to go. So he made a very stylish entrance 45 minutes later.
I am really excited for Max this year. Last year was a hard year for him. I didn't realize the effect our situation with Davy was having on him(cue intense mom guilt). SO this year clean slate, positive energy etc etc. here is to a great 4th grade Max!!!

He is getting so tall and handsome. I will bet he will pass you up in height soon.

Man, I hope he has a great day! And nothing is seriously wrong with him, too. I hope you have a nice relaxing (or semi-relaxing) day with the other kids.

Oh I hate ER's. Sounds like a tough kid though.

It just goes to show that the best made plans don't always happen. Glad to hear that he is ok!

Max looked absolutely darling going off to 4th grade. I can't believe how tall he is now. He's such a great kid Ruth. You and Scott have raised really nice kids! Hope he loves school!!!

Oh. My. Goodness. New-ish to your blog, and I just fell in love with that photo of your son. He looks like a living children's book illustration, what a handsome character! Your writing and photography are equally awesome, I really enjoy reading your words, thank you so much for sharing! What a cool family you have.
