Our Week in Pictures

We are HOME and I finally have a chance to update the blog with pictures from our week.  After a long drive yesterday with lots of traffic and backups, we got home around dinner time.  When I stopped in Radford to pick up Hope, my Mom stuck our dinner in the car.  We actually got to sit down to a home cooked meal together around our dinner table. 

These pictures show the highlights of our week in Charlottesville.  Here are Hope and David leaving clinic after chemo last week.  He is all smiles but several hours later he crashed. 
To encourage movement, one night we went to Dick's sporting goods to buy a birthday present.  The kids had a ball getting a workout in!!  Pops and I had to drag them out of that store:)
Waiting for labs in clinic-my boys being goofy:)
This picture makes me belly laugh because Kyle threw Hope in the pool with all he could muster and she LOVED it.  He was so sweet to help her swim this week at the pool at the condo and she did great!  If you are friends with me on facebook you saw many videos of Hope swimming because she insisted that I put them on fb to share "with Ashawee and all her fwiends"
We opted for the outdoor shower all week.  My kids never entered the shower at the conod because they would take an outside shower at the pool before leaving!!  That was awesome:)
One night we played putt putt and David almost beat Kyle.  That boy is good at putt putt!  that amazing place in Charlottesville gave us free passes to return so next chemo we will have a family night there for a rematch!
Kyle loves to teach and help Hope do stuff.  He most of the time has a lot of patience with her and he is the chosen one to help her. 
This picture cracks me up because she hit her ball in but did not realize it!  She was asking David where her ball is and of course it was already in the hole!!
Here are some pictures from the fishing expedition.  When the boys and Lisa pulled up in her fancy red jeep to pick us up, he said "holy crap" at her awesome ride.  We are working on de-programming that phrase from his vocabulary and he inists that Pops taught it to him!!  For the record I have never heard my Dad utter that phrase:)
Fishing with Logan.
Fishing with Sam. The water was so clear that we could watch the fish nibbling at the bait.  That was really neat for David. 

I think this is the bass that Logan caught and they have a tradition that you have to kiss the fish you catch-yikes!!
David's catch!!  Look very closely and you will see a tiny little blue gill on his line!!  Look at that excitement!!
Posing with his "big catch" of the day!  He opted not to kiss his fish:)
Great picture of two great guys with Big D!
Being silly...
David's bandage finally fell off of the port site and it is healing beautifully.
We were welcomed home last night by a big tray of hokie cupcakes from the Buchanan's.  As you can see the boys dug right in!!!

We are thrilled to be home and this Momma is sooooo excited to leave the kiddos home with Daddy and start prepping my preschool rooms today.  We are so happy to be home!
