Family field trip… Day 1048 29SEP11

Joshua got up and did school this morning although I could tell that he was really tired and run down from the chemo and the steroids. He has never been able to sleep well while he is on a steroids pulse. After he got his school work done he spent the rest of the afternoon resting on the couch, he didn't even want to come out and skate.
Joshua's afternoon

We had an early dinner and got ready to leave for our family field trip. It was really Joshua's field trip but he got to invite us all to go along. We loaded up into the car and drove across the skyway to the St. Pete Times printing facility where we met up with Joshua's teacher and a bunch of his classmates from virtual school. We were escorted on a great tour of the facility by the two press supervisors. They showed us the entire printing operation from where the paper is taken from the rail cars into their huge warehouse to the three story tall printing presses that they operate. It was a really cool tour and we all enjoyed it a bunch.

Each roll weighs 1800 pounds!

They even had robots!

Big place

 It was rather late by the time we got home so after a little tele the boys headed off to bed to get some rest.

Hey Snuggle Monkey,

Sorry to hear the chemo and steroids whip you so hard. Hope you are able to rest up and re-energize soon.

Keep kickin but Mighty Warrior. You are my Champion.
