We learned a few more things during this particular doctor visit. Caleb has extremely dry skin and to help keep him from itching we need to be moisturizing him 10 times a day. Yes, 10 times! I thought I was doing good with 5 times a day. Also, he can't take hot baths. We need to use Aveeno Calming Comfort bath solution. Then we have a prescription oil to use after bath time. He's also on an antibiotic because he did have a secondary infection. And at bedtime he takes an antihistamine to help control the itching.
Wow! What a schedule! I had to write it all down and put it up in Caleb's room just so I can keep track and make sure we're doing everything right. He goes back to the dermatologist in a couple weeks and I want to be able to show the doctor that we're doing everything the way he said to do it.
Right now, his skin looks awesome, but we believe that's because of the antibiotic. The true test will be after the antibiotic is done and out of his system. The doc said that if his eczema comes back, we're doing something wrong. We want to make sure that doesn't happen!!

This is the verse Laura Anne memorized for church last week. We got started 2 weeks late for memory verses, and we are very proud of her for memorizing all three verses to catch up.
Last week's lesson was centered around Ecclesiastes 3:11. During class, the kids planted a seed for a pea plant. By the weekend, we could see the plant starting to grow. The following picture was taken this morning:

Then it was party time! Saturday, October 3rd we had two parties to go to. The first was for Desiree, Chris' best friend's daughter. She had a bouncy thing in her back yard that we all enjoyed for a little while.
Ha! I only posted this next picture because of Laura Anne's hair. And the floating ball. :)
Then we headed to my mom's party. She turned 35. ;o) I have this thing for sometimes forgetting to get a picture of the birthday person so, sorry Mom!! I'll do better next year! You know, when you turn 34!
Here are the cousins, minus Anna who isn't yet big enough to sit with the big kids! The kids are enjoying pizza! With the exception of poor Caleb and his carrot sticks and turkey. :( But he doesn't know what pizza tastes like so it's all good!
Laura Anne and Steven played with Legos together. So sweet!
And Uncle Chris (a.k.a. Daddy) was a sport and got attacked by the children.

I did take the following two pictures. I'm coming to realize more and more that I am in love with outdoor pictures. I love taking pictures of the sky, flowers, my children, anything! The outdoors is filled with such wonderful natural light. I could stay out all day and snap pictures of the outdoor world.
I think I figured out what camera I want, too. I decided I don't need to save for the super duper incredibly expensive camera first. Instead I found this guy:It's a Canon Rebel xti. While it's still pretty expensive, it's not nearly as expensive as the others I was looking at. So for now, I will save my pennies and hope that one day, I can get a spiffy camera and snap awesome photos such as the ones above.

All the young kids played ring around the rosy and duck duck goose.
