Rosie, I saw that your son has raised more $! Good for him. Thanks . . . its fun watching the total go up!!!! getting so exciting . . there is a link on the Firstgiving page where you can get up to the minute reports on his progress the day of the race!!! So I signed up for the progress updates. If anyone wants the link, please email me.
I forgot, when is the marathon? Just a a week and a half. . . Sunday, October 7.
It sounds like you and your grandkids had a great time at the park. How old are they? YES! one of those little slices of life that makes great memories. Justine is 10 and Libby is 8.
Ours are 6 & 8 year old girls. Our favorite pastime is reading. We're into a series by Phyllis Reynolds Nalor and finished "Girls Rule" tonight and started "A Spy Among the Girls" in which one of the girls, a 10 year old, falls in love. My granddaughters were laughing hysterically at that and we can't wait to get together and read some more. Oh. . . yours are very close in age to mine . . . what a fun age to interact with them!! Your story time is a great idea. My Justine is an avid reader and she carries a library book at all times. She reads in the car and any odd moment when things are "boring". Maybe all three of us can take turns reading the story!! I can't wait to try that!!
I tell myself I'm not worried, and I act like I'm not worried, but I can't sleep tonight, so who knows. Maybe it's time to plan another vacation. :) Sounds very normal to me . . . I don't know how you could "not" worry about something so potentially serious. But you have a great attitude about it. I hope you sleep soundly tonight . . . I try the alphabet game when I can't get my mind off of a scary topic . . . Start with A and think of a word that begins with A that you are thankful for. Usually by the time I get to S, T, U, I'm getting groggy and I just fall asleep.
Keep us posted Patty!!
