It is now hot in Houston – ugh! Swimming season has started. Our official adoption decree arrived in the mail!
Lizzy had to go to the dentist – she has 2 new abscesses in her gums under one of her crowns. She will have that tooth extracted next week. Then we went and got her hair cut. I’ve been promising her that when her bangs grew out we would cut it, so we did!
Jason is learning so much about this new camera – he is having a lot of fun!
Heading off to Dads and Donuts at the elementary school. What fun for the three of them!
Cute Joy – pretty, on the phone, and dancing to My Neighbor Totoro.
Last year when I lived at Texas Children’s Hospital, the Ronald McDonald House was my life line. I am so grateful for that place – that calm in the storm. Sammi has been collecting soda can tops for them since then. She wanted to take them down there herself and I told her she could. I go to TCH all the time, but always with a full crew, so I can’t just stop and go to the 4th floor. Since the girls and Jason were coming down to visit on Saturday, Sammi brought her tops with her. During their visit, we walked them over there. They were so sweet to her! They thanked her and told her that they had never seen so many. I don’t know if that is true, but it sure made one 11 year old happy! I was able to take the girls on a small tour of the RMH. I about started crying walking around there. It was almost like being on sacred ground for me.
The girls were angels while Bella and I were in the hospital. Jason had a work crisis so he worked all Saturday and the kids held down the fort. They cleaned the whole house. Becca kept up the laundry and the dishes. I am so grateful for my kids! They are awesome!
