It was a quiet week without the boys! David & I are loving the sound of those little feet running all over the house again. However time flew for them, as they were having a blast at "family camp" with David's parents, sister, and niece. (Sister) Donna is a former Kindergarten teacher, so her skills and creativity are an incredible combination for children! Her daughter, Tara, took after her in the awesome "entertainment" category. :)
It was a fun week filled with crafts like this stepping stone…
|Golf lessons from one of the greatest... Grandy!|
|Golfing with Tara & Westin, too! :)|
|Muscle time with little cousin Westin... water parks... and oh so much more...|
|Like teaching Westin how to make funny faces.|
During my quiet time, I took some moments to look back at pictures over the past few years.
I was surprised to run across this photo from exactly one year ago. It brought back so many not-so-fond memories.
Looks like Caleb had a long, hard day?
David and I had actually carried him on our backs the entire day at Disney World. We couldn't figure out why children two or three years younger than him were able to walk, but he couldn't.
That led to six more weeks of doctor's appointments, second and third opinions, and three emergency room visits. It took a while to finally get his diagnosis, but we just never thought it was something as serious as cancer.
Oh, what a difference a year makes! Even though Caleb is taking daily chemotherapy, he has twice the energy he did a year ago. By the way, his long day at the clinic turned out well today! ;)
|We found out today that Cal's levels are holding strong, so he's definitely going to start first grade at school. Hallelujah! :)|
We still pray for all of Caleb's Crusaders, because you are a powerful part of this partnership. Hope you're enjoying a wonderful summer! God bless.
