Phew...I'm home!! I spent the weekend in the hospital because of a fever, but I am finally home with the people I love. My carefully planned list of things to do before treatment and Thanksgiving got shredded up and condensed into today, but I'm so happy to be feeling well and able to do what I need to do to be prepared for tomorrow.
Here's a look at our week....
Amanda was having a tough day, as Amanda's are apt to have. While Shaun took her out grocery shopping (brave man!) Avery and Aiden schemed a way to brighten up her day. They decorated her bed and left her a couple special notes and made a colorful melty bead thing. So sweet!
Homework with tunes.
Homework without tunes.
Pre-bed basketball with their big brother.
My favorite Jedi-knight.
We've cleared out the cleats and soccer balls to make rooms for the high tops and basketballs.
After work and before rehearsal, Shaun went to the school. He is a leader in the TSA (Technology Student Association) club. He was heavily involved in it in high school, even at the state level, and has the trophies to show for it. I think its so cool that he and Avery will get to do this together. She is excited about doing robotics and catapult. Clearly, her father's daughter! Avery was checking out some videos of previous competitions. Strangely, there were no youtube videos of Shaun in 1988. ;)
We all joined Shaun and Aiden for the final dress rehearsal. SUCH an amazing show, SUCH an amazing cast, SUCH a special thing to be a part of!
It was a rare day that R was here in the middle of the day. He and his girlfriend did school pickup and Aiden got a ride.
This game was played several times this week.
Woke this sweet boy up from his post-school/pre-performance nap.
I woke up with a fever that kept climbing so Shaun and I headed to the hospital in NYC while the rest of my family celebrated our traditional pre-Thanksgiving Thanksgiving. I was super sad to miss it, its always so great to be together and Amy and Colombo always do such a great job hosting, but getting pictures from the day made me happy. Check out that gaggle of kids. :)
I hope to post again tomorrow, but I make no promises.
