Yes, We Are Still Alive...

Time to play catch up...a lot has happened since I last posted! Abigail had her MRI and everything came back normal. No lesions or abnormalities...what a blessing! She also had her orthopedic appointment, and we are going to continue to give her lower extremities a little more time to hopefully correct themselves.

We leave for Cincinnati in less than two weeks, and the Lord has blessed us abundantly as we have prepared financially for this trip. Ross' mom (Nana) will be coming up here to stay with the "big girls" while we are gone. With any luck, Nana, will have the girls saying, "Yes mam and no mam" on a regular basis by the time we get back home ;).

Mary Grace is ready for school. We have bought all of her school supplies, backpack, and gotten her haircut. Her hair is so cute! She cut it to right at her was sad to see the length go, but it is cute and exactly what she wanted.

Now all I have to do is: finish cleaning my house, make lists (food, meds, driving directions) for Nana, laundry, get meals together for while we're gone, buy a few things for the trip, and pack. Is that everything? Probably not, but it is a good start.

Poor Hannah, I didn't write anything about her...well, she is the same ole' Hannah. Although, I think she is going to be in for a very rude awakening when "Gracie" goes to school. They have never been apart for more than 24 hrs. It makes me sad to think about, so I'm not going to talk about it anymore. However, it will be good bonding time for she and Abigail...and also, I will enjoy the time with her as my "big girl"!

I think you are all up-to-date; so yes, I am alive. I have just been busy. I didn't even get into the fact that the Lord has blessed me with meeting two different families (in Fayetteville) with eosinophilic children, but I will leave that for another day.
