Today has been a much needed playday.  David and Kyle went to school this morning so Miss Hope and I headed out to storytime at our library.  Today was Dr. Seuss day in honor of his upcoming birthday! 
Here is our fabulous librarian and amazing friend, Tracey.  Not only is she an awesome children's librarian, but she is an amazing Mom and friend.  I could do a whole blog post on her, but here she is dressed as Cat in the Hat for storytime.  It felt so good to do normal Mommy/daughter stuff today and David had another fabulous day at school.
Here is Hope in her "big tutu" watching Horton Hears a Who on the big screen after the books were all read.  Being homebound with David and Hope has been great, but I have missed doing the mommy playgroup thing.  I also got an extra treat of running into my four year old preschool class at the library!  Oh how I have missed their sweet faces:)  They looked huge to me!
Hope coloring her Horton ears! 

Sweet little Sydney Pugh:)  AFter library we went and picked up David from school. We then spontaneously had lunch with two other Mommies and lots of kiddos.  It was pure heaven to catch up with friends and to have a distraction from tomorrow.  I am trying so hard to have faith and not be worried about tomorrow's scan and procedures, but it is hard.  We covet your prayers to not only get through the day, but that the results will show that no new lesions have popped up. The last EKG that we did was traumatic because of those darn stickers, and we are worried that it will be stressful for him tomorrow.  The CT scan last time went beautifully, but you never know how Rock Star is going to perform.  GG just arrived to take over the care of Hope and Kyle so Mike and I can both go to UVA this evening.  Kyle is on a fun playdate and will probably not miss us too much! 

We will update the blog tomorrow with the results.  Thanks in advance for praying us through tomorrow:)  Without our prayer warriors and our Jesus we would be lost:) Off to Camp Pendleton we go to get a good nights sleep for our big day tomorrow!


  1. I am so glad you have had some great sunshine and fun time with the kids. It feels good I can tell by your sweet words. I know some of those feelings. Many prayers going up for David and your family tonight and tomorrow as I think of your and your entire family so often. I always follow your blog to see how Rock Star is doing. He is so handsome!

  2. You will be brought before the throne, and requests for David's results and testing laid at our Lords feet. Prayers for you, Davids dear parents, will be offered up, that His mantle of peace will be on you no matter what transpires. The words to a song keep running through my thoughts..."Holy, holy, holy, the Lord God Almighty, who was and is and is to come..." I know you know this, but as you have written, His amazing faithfulness to you through this journey gives you confidence that He is worthy of your trust. I so appreciate how you look for and find the blessings in each day - it is a gift to all of us who read your inspiring words. Be blessed, Karin in CA
