This week was full and varied with highs and lows but chock full of blessings. We mixed and matched summer and fall with swimming and grilling and soccer and homework.
I had a couple days without the vacuum and before chemo, so I got to go to church! I also had this handsome group with me.
Homework is a reality Aiden's starting to settle into.
This sweetie is two months old. I got to hold my niece and take pictures of her for the first time.
I drove an hour each way to drop this little guy off at his first day of Kindergarten. He was so excited to start school, and that his mom (foster mom) was going to pick him up from school.
What a sweet, energetic boy who's already been through so much in his five short years. I feel so thankful we could show him love and speak life into him and be a small part of his story.
Shaun worked to exhaustion getting a few projects done around the house. I'm thrilled with how the stairs and third floor landing came out. The walls just need some pictures now.
In New York City for the day, hanging at the cancer center. Whatever we walk through, I'm so very grateful to be with this guy.
The kids had the dining room transformed into a tent city.
My only picture from the day. This is the new chemo pump I go home with. It runs on my body heat and is soundless and does not vibrate. What a delightful difference over the one I had last winter! You would be appalled if you knew all the little things that make me happy these days. :)
Lobster Fest weekend (and of course I'll have a recap coming). After a big breakfast, we headed to my sister's for the day. The day was just right, hanging by the pool, enjoying the summer air.
Another amazing year for the books. This group looks so tiny to me after our OBX picture.
