Here's to hoping everyone had a nice, fun Father's day just like we did. Happy Father's Day to our dads, Grandpa Oscar, Grandpa Dean and Grandpa Dale. We love you guys! Kevin - you've done a heck of a job for our little dude these past almost 6 yrs of our pedi cancer rollercoaster. Keep up the good work:)
Hans continues to do well and is getting back into some of his old activities. We've had a couple nice family swims this week, for sure. We had a mellow weekend at home, thank goodness. Just what we needed. We had the surprise trip to the hospital for 14 days, and then started the commuting for xrt, so I feel like I just started to catch my breath this weekend. Kevin took Hans into LA on Friday and I got rolling on the paperwork, cleaning and my decorating 'homework' I had left over from Aunt Debbie's visit. It's not done, but it all feels better.
We seem to have a new tradition around here - today we celebrated Father's Day with dinner and GoKart Ride. It was HOT here (108)! But there was no line at our little amusement center:) And when you are racing around a Go Kart track you get a breeze anyway, right? We did the bumper boats today, too, and Hans got away with driving his own boat even though he's just half an inch shy on the height requirement. Fun, fun, fun and we all got soaked.
We are gearing up for another week of Xrt, and Kev back to work and Elle off to a local full day soccer camp at CSUB. Her Nationals team had to fold so she doesn't get to go to Tennessee next week:( The team folded b/c too many of the girls were taking enrichment summer school courses. It sort of worked out for us since I was going to take her, and we'll still be doing Xrt... So, we are glad to put her in a local camp for one week, anyway. It'll be HOT, but after our time in TX, we are sure she can stay hydrated and pace herself. Thanks Toths for the rides and the technical assistance getting her into camp. I've been so wrapped up in Xrt, the simplest things like filling out a camp form can slide right by. What a blessing that Krisztina will print up the form, drive it over here, and stand here smiling while I fill it out. She'll highlight what Elle needs to bring, and help with rides next week! I'm lucky that I have my pal Shelley to keep giving me the heads up on what I need to turn in for GS camp later this summer. Thanks, Shelley:) Krisztina told me "I just don't know how you do it." Sometimes I just laugh and say, "Poorly!" But I get by with a little help from my friends...
