They finally posted our photo on their facebook page so I could nab it and post it here! Nicole's friend, Rachel, came with us, and so the kids all wrote our team name on their hands, which is why they are holding their hands up (took me a sec to figure that out - I had already forgotten they did that - it was so 17 days ago!)
Then the next weekend, the 12th & the 13th, I had the priviledge of attending a Beth Moore event here in Tampa along with 7,000 other women! It was really powerful and lots of fun! I sat with my friends Shannan and Marie in seats that were only about 10 rows back from the stage! We all agreed we felt like we had a little taste of heaven there. At one point Beth walked into the crowd to take testimonies from ladies in the crowd and she ended up practically right next to us. Here are some pictures from that time:
Last week the kids went to church camp and had a blast! We picked them up Thursday night from Bradenton, and they sang all the way home! Tim and I steam cleaned while they were gone - we cleaned the carpets, the dining room chairs, the bar stools, the sectional couch, both cars (seats and carpet) - basically anything that had upholstry on it - we cleaned it! I can't believe what a huge difference it made! We rented a Bissell from Big Lots based on a recommendation from a friend, and that thing was the BOMB! Another thing I got to do was go visit my brother who was working at Disney for the week. He had the misfortune of getting stuck with a red convertible rental, so we had to go tooling around in it. :-) And they put him up at this shabby hotel in Animal Kingdom where he had a menagarie of animals right outside his bedroom window! The picture below was taken from his room! That place was a zoo! ar ar ar! :-)
Anyway, back to camp, the kids came back from church camp Thursday night fired up but exhausted! And then the triplets headed off to Worldview Camp in Clearwater yesterday, and they are there until Friday! Nicholas started a new job today at a Blueberry Farm, and he's got his sights on a Mac Book Pro he wants, so he's motiviated! Here are some pictures of the triplet's first day at camp:
My next chemo is supposed to be around the first of July, but today I realized I don't think I'm on any schedule for that. So I called my doctor's office to talk to them about that and am waiting to hear back from them. I still have a pain in my right side that comes and goes - have had it since February - but I had a cat scan back then that didn't reveal anything and I haven't really known what to do about it, so I have done nothing so far. Well, I think that's about all the news that's fit to print as the saying goes. :-) Blesssings to all!
