Corvette Summer… Day 668 12SEP10

Joshua had a rather exciting and special afternoon today. We received a visit from our good friend George and he came to visit in his very beautiful blue Corvette. Joshua was really keen to get a ride so George and he took off into the afternoon sun for a little jaunt. Over an hour later they turned back up with a wonderful story of traveling around the area with Joshua acting as tour guide. We even got a phone call from Renee's dad who spotted Joshua riding around in the Vette. He had a great time and George even left him with a cool Corvette hat to wear. Renee and I were both secretly jealous ;)

A little later we got another special visit from our very own Miss Allie and her folks along with Jamie's brother Matt. They were taking Matt back to her parent's house and stopped in for a little visit. Allie was totally mesmerized by Joshua's bravery beads and had quite a lot of fun trying to figure out if she could pull them apart or not. Two days with Allie back to back is a special treat for us. She spent a good portion of her time walking back and forwards across the floor. Amazing how fast children master such complex skills.

In the morning we grind back into the daily routine of clinic Monday and school. Jarrod is still having a bit of trouble with his throat so we are going to get him in to see the pediatrician tomorrow. Joshua is just due for a finger stick and labs plus normal chemo at home. His teacher is also coming in the afternoon so we have got to get him back and ready for school. Should prove to be a busy day.

What a very special weekend! Miss Allie turning one year old AND a ride in George's Corvette! That's so cool...

Hope Jarrod is feeling better soon and it's just your basic sore throat. Josh we hope clinic is a normal day and all goes well.

Love to you all, Laura and Frank

Hey Snuggle Monkey,

Sorry I missed a day. For some reason my computer thinks your blog spot certificate is not valid. Did your Dad forget to pay the bill?

Whoa!!!!! What a cool ride. Hope you enjoyed every second of it.

Bummer that Jarrod's throat is still bothering him. Hope the doctor can give it a quick fix.

Keep kickin butt Mighty Warrior. You are my Champion.

Tons of Love, Hugs and Kisses,
