It has been almost a year since I posted last, and looking back there are some things that never change! 11 months later and my mother is back to scheduling surgery for what might be a cancerous growth on her kidney. My dad just finished a grueling new treatment a few weeks ago. He has a new tumor that is wrapped around his carotid artery and causing him to black out and have seizures. He still has not found out if it worked; they are hoping it shrinks it enough that he is more comfortable. Nothing else much they can do.
We are into our second week of summer vacation and so far, so good. We spend week one in North Carolina and had a great time. JM, for the first time, loved the ocean waves. The kids were swimming either in the ocean or our pool probably 6+ hours a day. Their skin shows it....very dried out! It as 90+ every day and we only had two small storms after dark. Perfect way to start the summer.
We are back to baseball, swim team, and JC volunteering at the library. JM's team got a bye in the first round and won in round two. Now we play tomorrow and if we win, Saturday is the championship. He hit in the winning run last night. It seems we are pretty booked this summer, but will definitely use our pool pass as much as possible! JC's first swim meet is tonight, should be fun.
Off to shoo the boys off of Wii and the computer to get them to do a little reading. They read a lot in the car during the vacation and trying to not slack off already!
