Catch up… Day 853 17MAR11

Joshua and Jarrod had to start catching up on the school work they have missed the past few days. The steroids made it particularly hard on Joshua and he was having a hard time sticking with it but he managed to get through. Jarrod had a rocky start but managed to get it smoothed out and keep going. AFter lunch I took the boys up to the library with me to pick up some books I had requested. They wanted to search for books as well so I helped them use the computer and then locate the books on the shelves. Joshua got some neat books on hockey and JArrod found a cool book on how to program his LEGO Mindstorm. He was pretty excited about his find and started reading it as soon as we got home. Joshua didn't even wait that long and began to read his books on the way back to the house.

This evening we headed in to the Children's Cancer Center for family night. We had a fun dinner and then got a chance to visit and catch up with all of our friends. Everyone is doing okay right now and it is a period of relative calm for all of the cancer kids which is great. We headed home as soon as we were done hoping to catch the end of the hockey game, which we did. Unfortunately they lost in a shootout. It was still fun to watch and a good way to wrap up our rather busy day. In the morning Joshua gets his IVIG infusion and then we will leave for camp.
