This weekend was something of an emotional one.
We drove to Adelaide Thursday afternoon to be there in time for the baseball on Thursday night and Sebastian's first school transition visit on Friday morning. In the drizzling rain we didn't quite manage a photo of the boy. He looks so grown up in his school shirt. I had a few big gulp, nearly teary moments during our one hour visit.
Friday night was more baseball. My red boots made it through the day with me as the mumvember challenge had to drop the mum uniform and wear something you wouldn't normally. Heels were the obvious choice for me.
Saturday morning we enjoyed a breakfast out with mum and my sister sam and her family. It was lovely (and kind of funny) seeing mum lined up on the banquette with all but one of her grandchildren.
I dared lil to wear her 'geek' glasses for the whole day, she pulled it off. Funny girl.
After breakfast we headed to the park for a play. A friend of Lil's was there too and the kids all climbed 'the tree'. You can just see Lil dangling from the canopy. I love this big old Moreton Bay Fig. I used to climb it when I was a kid too, I love it that my kids are climbing it now.
During breakfast Steven rang his mum to organise a time to visit at the hospital. Here begins a story of how words can get lost in translation. My father in law had said 'they are discharging me because there is nothing they can do'...the all important 'over the weekend' was left off...I took Steven up to the hospital to sit with his dad until his mum got there. His dad has been diagnosed with a secondary brain tumor following his diagnosis and treatment for cancer of the oesophagus 12 months ago. Cancer sucks.
Saturday night we rounded out our weekend of baseball watching with a double header. I suspect it's only a matter of time before Sebastian starts offering autographs of his own.
It was really cool watching him throwing and catching with another (older) kid during the break between games. The other kid was fantastically encouraging and supportive of him.
Sebastian tried the geek glasses on for size.
We finished off our weekend with a detour to visit Steven's parents on our way home. The kids posed with santa on their front verandah.
Now we are home for 4 sleeps before we turn around and do it all again, but next time we have Sebastian's birthday, a market for Green Dandelion and the Foo Fighters concert added in.
