Friends are awesome... Day 272 11AUG09

Joshua had a special visitor this morning. Carly and her mom came by and she got to stay and play for quite a while. They had a wonderful time doing all kinds of stuff. I managed to catch a video of them playing Wii tennis. Carly is quite good at the tennis that involves real rackets and running around in the heat and no less good at the Wii version. Check out the great moves they both have.

Carly's mom brought over her camera and I got a video of the kids swimming at her house yesterday. I wish I could have been there, it looked like a lot of fun. I particularly like the singing :)

Today felt really good, it was the sounds of kid's laughter and seeing Josh and Carly having so much fun just being kids. We have missed that these past long months. Josh is doing well and tolerating the Methotrexate he took on Monday so far. It will take a while for him to settle into the groove but he is doing great right now. We are looking forward to more good days and watching Joshua enjoy being seven.

Hey Snuggle Monkey,

Thanks to God for normal fun filled days and being able to enjoy friends!

I loved watching you and Carly playing tennis. Both of you have some great moves. Carly's tennis lessons are paying off. She has a wicked backhand.

The pool video was awesome. You look like a tadpole skimming under the water. Amazing breath control.
And it looks like Sophie gives excellent head kisses.

I can't tell you what a day brightener it is to watch you and Jarrod. Hope there are more and more videos to some.

Keep kickin butt Mighty Warrior - you are The Champion.

Tons of Love, Hugs and Kisses,

Nonna
