A day of fun... Day 186 17MAY09

Joshua got up this morning and headed off for church. This is the first time he has been to church for a regular service in quite a while. When he got home he made sure he got all of his meds before he started playing for the day. It is rather strange, although normal here, for your seven year old to remind you that he needs to take his medicine. But he knows exactly what he needs to take, the correct dose, and when he is supposed to take it.

Jamie and Christian came over a little later and Joshua ran them ragged for most of the day. He played tennis, built k'nex stuff with Jamie and Jarrod, and sang songs while they were working. He got his favorite for dinner, crab legs. I found them on sale at the market and picked some up for Josh. This kid is a shelling machine. He can really tear through some crab legs. It is really fun to watch him go to work on them. His appetite today was just short of continuos, a big change from a few weeks back. After dinner he took a walk on the golf course with Jamie, Christian, and I. We found 25 golf balls tonight! A new family record. Even with the frequent sprinkles today we still managed to get some good time outside. JAmie and Christian stayed until it was time for the kids to go to bed, it was a fun day for all of us.

Hey Snuggle Monkey,

A day of fun!!! How wonderful. I hope you stuffed yourself with crab legs. And finding 25 golf balls - that's great. You and Jarrod can start your own golf course and make big money so you can buy more crab legs.

It is so wonderful to hear you are doing well and I hope it continues.

Tons of Love, Hugs and Kisses,

It sounds like it was a great time for everyone! Josh, crab legs are totally awesome. It's fnatastic you have your appetite back and got to play with everyone. I know your Mom and Dad were happy to see you with your brothers and sister having a good time. Hope Tuesday brings another good day, since Monday is a rainy day. Love, Laura & Frank
