In the Summertime

It is Friday! We made it through the last week of school and the pace of our days has come to a screeching halt. The kids are laying around in their sleeping bags after our living room sleepover last night.

We had a great day yesterday. I picked the kids up at school at 1:15 and we headed over to the chemo center to meet Nurse Sara and do Jack's blood draw. No chemo this week or next. Jack's blood counts were 1040 ANC. It is above the 1000 that it needs to be for us to go about our life like normal, thank you Lord for those 40 points. We had a fun swim party with friends and pot luck cookout.

We stayed up till about 10pm, which is way late for my kids watching a movie.
We have arrived at Friday, the first day of summer vacation.

One very exciting happening of the last day of school...Sophie who is in the 1st grade was the only student in the class who had never lost a tooth. Mere hours before the end of the last day of school, Sophie lost her first tooth. She was very excited to show the gap in her mouth to anyone who might like to see. Hooray for Sophie.

I am looking forward to a great summer with my kids.

Yeah Sophie! Megan knows exactly how she feels. It took forever for her to lose a tooth... and she was sooooo very sad about it.

Very excited to see ya'll at the pool soon!
