Day 88 08FEB09

Crazy eighty-eight.

I know what you are thinking, it's Sunday, why are the boys doing school work. Around here we get work done whenever we can, you never know what tomorrow might bring. Joshua and I did his school work out on the deck, the weather has turned that nice already. Jarrod did so much thinking his head hurt and he was wearing an ice pack.

Actually he bumped his head on the bottom of his desk. Nothing serious.

After Josh got his homework done we got a chance to log some serious h-time. We love that old hammock. I firmly believe everyone should own a hammock, they are one of the man's best inventions. Truly a wonder of the world. Okay, well, maybe not a true "wonder" of the world. Not exactly like the Hanging Gardens of Babylon or anything. But mighty comfortable. Almost mystical. Josh and I cuddle and we talk about things, sometimes we talk about what is going on, but mostly we just enjoy being close and we talk about things, tangents really, that interest us at that particular moment.

It's wonderful to have those rambling non-sensical conversations with your child. No lessons to teach, no ethics or mores to reinforce. Just thoughts and ideas to share. Life was good today.

Tomorrow we are back at the clinic for Joshua to get his port re-accessed, labs done and another, seemingly endless, round of chemo started. We are getting a late start because he has school in the morning. If all goes well he should be home before dinner.

88- Dale Earnhardt Jr's number - as you can tell I'm gearing up for NASCAR - no pun intended. It's a big sport around our house.

Josh, you look so serious doing that homework - can't figure a way out of it, huh? It was a BEAUTIFUL day to be outside. I love Florida.

I thought for a moment Jarrod was wearing ice on his head for using his brain to design a new roller coaster. A hammock is a wonderful place for a father and son to have quality time.

Hopefully it will go quickly Monday. We want to play sometime! Love. Miss Laura & Fraps Forgive all my misspelled words yesterday- I was in such a hurry, I hit some very wrong button.
