I had this wonderful birthday post ready to go for Artie's birthday yesterday. But then I woke up and Monday happened.
Don't you hate when a wonderful weekend is ruined by a Monday? Yeah. Me too.
Poor Artie spent his birthday worrying about my car. The dealership called and I need another new transmission. That would round out this car to having 3. In 2 years. Not a great track record in my books. So we had to make the decision to either pay the $4000 for the new (refurbished) transmission or cut our losses and buy another car. We decided to find another car. Everything will be finalized tomorrow and I will no longer have to worry about my car anymore. Praise the Lord.
Artie is getting a birthday re-do on Thursday haha!
I do have to say that this weekend was wonderful! So I just keep thinking about it and forgetting about Monday ha!
Saturday the band had their last competition of the season and the majorettes did AWESOME! I was so happy and proud of all their hard work. There was not a majorette judge this time but they totally would have won!
Sunday was a blast as well. Artie, Grayson and I went to visit his birth family! It was so magical to see them together again. They could not get over how big he was and that he will be 3 months old this week. I am so glad we got to spend the day with them. I took some wonderful pictures of them with Grayson that I will put in his book. We hope to get together more than just once every 3 months. I pray that other families of adoption are able to have this kind of relationship. I am glad he was his giggly self haha. Sometimes he has a bad day and just cries...but not Sunday! I just cried and cried on the way home thinking of the sacrifice they made for our family. I could not imagine one day with out his sweet smile and it just breaks my heart. (for their privacy I have colored their faces)
