The Cotillion
Well, we still don't have any definitive answers on what is going on with Tyler though I am pretty sure he has a kidney stone. From what many of you have emailed me you have had stones that were not immediately visible from an ultra sound either. He is feeling good, no pain at this time, so I am hoping they figure it out asap before we get to that point.

Anyway, he was feeling good on Friday night so he decided to go to his school Cotillion. This is a special dance just for eighth graders. The eighth graders are required to take an elective class learning about manners, dancing, and all other social graces. When the class is over they hold a Cotillion in which the boys are paired up with a girl and they spend the evening using all the social graces they have been practicing over the last few months.

Tyler HATES to have his picture taken but he was a good sport and let me take a few of him all dressed up in his finest.

First he had to prepare by adjusting his jacket.

Then he gave me the obligatory "Hurry up and take the picture" look.
Then he started very quickly with the "I've really had enough of this" looks.

Then he threatened to leave without me so I had to stop.
He had a good time and I'm sure it was a nice change from all the doctor appointments he's had lately.

Now, just so I don't get in trouble for not giving equal time to my kids, here's a picture of Garrett's team on opening day during the parade. My kids the big one.
Go Yankee's! There off to a great start with two wins and one loss. I love watching that kid play.

I just cam e across your blog. I have never had kidney stones, but gall stones, they are killer...I imagine the pain is similar.

I'm glad he was feeling well enough to have a night out! I'm with him on the photo business...I hate having mine taken too! (probably has something to do with a sis who is a photog!)

I'm looking forward to watching my nephew and niece play ball in a week or so! Hopefully I'll manage to squeeze in a game or two before delivery day!! Good luck to your little man and his team this season!

I'm glad he's feeling better! And FUN pictures! One year my son got on the Little League "Yankees" team and you can imagine how depressed our New England boy was, LOL.
