Our Weekend In Tacoma

Bryce and I went over to Tacoma this past weekend for the state wrestling tournament. Since, this was my first time at state, I really had no clue what it was all about. Friday afternoon, we checked into the hotel and went straight to the Tacoma Dome. We then proceeded to sit there for the next 6 hours watching wrestling. Yes, I said 6 hours! The worst part was that I forgot to bring my book with me and I don't have a smart phone, so I sat there completely bored. Don't get me wrong, there were some good matches, but I didn't know any of the kids wrestling. So, Saturday morning started at 7 a.m. Way to early to be up on a Saturday morning! Off we went to the dome for another long day of wrestling. This time however, I brought a book. The Warden boys and girls did great! Actually, the girls placed the highest they ever have at state this year. After we ate lunch, I stayed back at the hotel and rested and cried because I missed my kids. As much as they drive me CRAZY, I really do miss being away from them longer than a day. Anyways, the Warden boys placed 3rd overall and the girls tied for 6th. The best part of the whole weekend was when we stopped at North Bend and got the kids some clothes. Carter had some super cute dresses! We ended up spending way too much money, but it was totally worth it. The kids had a great time with Kylee and the rest of the Buck's. I cannot thank them enough for watching the kids for us. I think the kids were even a little glad to see us.

Update on Cooper

Thursday afternoon, I decided to take Cooper back to the doctor. I am very gald that I did now. Come to find out, his infection came back as strep. So, the medicine that they had him on (Septra) doesn't work on strep. So, Dr. Bond put him on Amoxicillin. And holy cow, Cooper took it! I was so excited!! Today, I ended up taking him back because it still didn't look good. Cooper got his antibiotic strength upped and some Bactriban to put on his finger. Now, I am worried because the Amoxicillin is now orange, not pink. So, I hope that he will take his medicine. Either that or I am going to ask them to just cut his finger off!!

Oh, it's so good you followed up! No form of Strep is good. It's a BAD deal!

6 hours of wrestling. That's a long time! I bet you know a lot more about wrestling now than you ever could have thought possible!

And as for the new clothes, new clothes are always fun! :)

Sorry you found state to be so on the boring side....things are always more fun when you actually know the people participating. Glad you were able to stop at North Bend, I LOVE that place! Hope the little man's finger gets better soon!!!!
