Project 365, Week 41

There is so much to say that I really should insert a proper intro here, but its been a wonderful weekend and I'm tired and so I'll save it for another post.

October 5 
We got to see our sweet E!!  Her foster family invited us to a festival at their church.  There were lots of games and food and it was just a beautiful New England day to be out.  She's in a good place and is being well cared for, but gosh, we still miss her!

 The girls were scheming a sleepover and talking about little girl things.
Later, Pop and Kiki bought pizza for everyone and we enjoyed my two aunts and uncle, who were visiting from Idaho.
 October 6
I spent the day at my brother's house with his handsome and such a good daddy.  He's one of the good guys.
 October 7
We were out the door at 7:15 AM to drop the girls at school and then to fulfill two appointments at the cancer center.  The first was to get scanned and tattooed with the radiologist and then upstairs to meet with the oncologist and then a blood draw for good measure.

Then we hopped in the car and headed to NYC.  We walked around the city for a bit, then had a nice dinner, where we weren't interrupted by kids even one time.
 We saw our favorite Broadway show for not the first time, but with some minor changes that really enhanced it.
 October 8
The weather was perfect for walking and enjoying the sights and sounds of the city.  Such a beautiful morning walking back to our hotel after breakfast.
 From 10-4 we were at Memorial Sloan Kettering, talking to doctors and getting further testing done. More on that, maybe tomorrow.  The waiting room, where we spent much of the day, was beautiful!
 October 9
Parent/teacher conferences.  Both teachers had good things to say about the girls.
 Aiden was enjoying his new toy.

Soccer now ends at 7:00 and it is DARK.  :( Aiden wanted to guide his sisters to the car with his "light slaver".
October 10
Too nice and sunny on the porch to not do school out there.

October 11
I crossed the finish line after completing all 26.2 miles!!

A great shot of you crossing! With a smile! And I love how Tim is beaming and clapping for you.

I got tears at the "finish line" photo. Can't wait for another "finish line" in your latest challenge. You are amazing! I also love Tim's face of pride and joy for you. xo

you amaze me!!! congrats on crossing that line!

I need to know what minor changes were made that could actually enhance my FAVORITE broadway show?!!!

LuAnn said...

How exciting for you, crossing the finish line. Looked like a great time for you and Shaun too.

I got choked up at the last shot of you with that big grin, crossing the finish line! Amazing! And the look on Tim's cool!

Like everyone else I LOVE that last picture - so amazing! I'm still struggling to walk a mile a day. Sigh.

I also love the light slaver - priceless :)
