This weekend has simply been exactly what this Momma has needed. Except to go to church and to the grocery store I have been home in my comfy clothes. Weekends at home are precious gifts.
After we left the farm we went with some friends to the nearby Dutch Pantry in Rural Retreat for lunch and shopping for goodies. We had lunch with our preschoolers in tow and it was such fun. God has blessed me with some funny and amazing friends to laugh and parent with. We laughed so loudly that my head hurt afterwards. Good friends and belly laughs are great medicine for stress:)
We have a sweet little tradition on Sunday afternoons to go to preschool. Mike and Kyle have basketball for a few hours on Sunday so the little ones and I go to preschool to set out the crafts for the week and get organized. Hope is in her element because she has a real life student that she can boss around-David!! Ha! In the picture above she is reading Pete the Cat to him.
David is doing well this weekend except for his first little gunky cold of the season. He does not feel bad, he just sounds like a smoker with a raspy voice. He is on his weekend antibiotic (Bactrim) to ward off scary pneumonia. He used to get this medicine via his port, but now that we are central line free he must take it orally. He is not a fan, but we must continue until his immune system catches up from the rollercoaster ride of chemo.
