Nate's Check up and Moving is for the birds~

First things first.  We went to Memphis last week for Nathan's 6 month check up.  He got a great report.  Also, he had gained 1 pound and grown almost 2 inches.  While we were eating breakfast, we noticed a lot of men in suits with those cord things behind their ears, dogs were sniffing around everywhere and some were even banned from elevator use.  My first thought, was there a bomb threat??  Really, at a Children's Cancer Hospital??  Then Matt and I realized someone whom someone thinks is important must be going to pay a visit.  While getting Nathan's results and we knew he was perfect, Matt asked Nathan's oncologist, "Is the president coming or something?"  She said, "yes, but that of a former president Mr. Bill Clinton was in fact in the building".  So, as we were sitting in the Kay Kafe, here he goes walking outside holding hands with some precious St. Jude patients.

We signed on the dotted line June 26, 2012.  The house we built is ours to pay for the next 30 years give or take :) 3 days later Two Men (actually 3 men) and a Truck moved us to our new humble abode for approx. 10.5 hours.  The temp that day reached 106, I think.  While the movers finished unloading the last truckload, Matt and Mattie headed to Cullman for a softball tournament and I headed to Nathan's school for a program.  

So, today is July 10, 2012 and I would like to state for the record; Moving is for the birds~ and the birds only!  We spent a complete 8 hour day one day doing one task; HANGING PICTURES!  At first I was very precise, by hour 7-8 I really didn't care who the picture was, where it was, and how it was hanging...level or not. And, as of today, we are as "settled" as we are going to be.  A great big shout out to Pearson Homes, Inc.  We have been nothing but completely satisfied with what a fantastic job they did building this beauty.
Here are a few of my favorite pics during the build process

We have so many good memories in the other house and we look forward to making more memories in this house.

You Can't Keep A Good Man Down

Nathan has played 2 games now with his broken arm.  He was pretty reserved during the first game. By the second game, which was last night, he SLID into home EVERY TIME! That is such a great way to make mom even more nervous than she already is!!  
Above: Matt giving Nathan instruction. To which Nathan replies "I know dad".

To the right, Coach Eddie cutting Nathan no slack.

I guess things could be worse.......hence the coach on crutches.

I know I have said it a million times before, but I will say it again.  Nathan Boyett is super duper tough stuff, (until he gets a mosquito bite and that's a whole other story).

                                                   APRIL 2012

                                                   APRIL 2010

The first broken arm was a bike accident.  This year's broken arm was from jumping off a landing at the playground.  This time, it's his left hand, which he eats and writes with, which has been pretty challenging, but we are making it work.  The sad part is, he broke his arm about 30 minutes after his first t-ball game of the season.  We are hoping he is able to play a little here and there, if not, it's going to be a loooooog season of 7 more games (especially for Coach Matt)

Mattie continues to play softball.  I guess we didn't have enough on our plate, so she is playing for 2 teams. 

We are also in the process of building a house with our current house on the market.  www.valleymls.com   MLS# 624041

Nathan had kindergarten orientation this week.  He is very excited and we are excited for him.  Not sure how excited Mattie is now that he will be at her school.

Ok, I guess that's all for now.  Hope to blog again soon.
