Finally, finally. I think everyone has shaken the sickies. If one more person hurls, I might run screaming from the house. Sorry, that was gross. But so is the amount of junk I have dealt with this week. Yuck. Let's all say it together. Yuck.
Our weekend ended up being beautiful. On Saturday, Alice had a soccer game. Afterwards she had her team photos taken. I enjoyed snapping these pictures of her and the team. We spent the rest of the day hanging out, playing outside and soaking in the end of summer.
Today, we spent the morning at church. We had lunch at Einstein's and the walked around Manitou Springs for the rest of the afternoon. We even enjoyed an ice-cream cone at Colorado Creamery in Old Colorado City.
Couldn't have asked for a nicer weekend. Now everyone is slumbering and resting their bodies to GO BACK TO SCHOOL tomorrow. Lunches are made, clothes are laid out, bags are packed. I haven't been this ready since....okay, never.
Enjoy the week. Mason and I (and Paige) will be going back to Greeley on Tuesday for a checkup. If all goes as planned, Mason will be wearing his shoes/braces 16 hours a day instead of 23 hours, as he is now. Have I mentioned that he has started walking in the one hour a day he isn't wearing the shoes? He is definitely tottering between us and the furniture. He is so ready. It brings tears to my eyes every time. Just so hard to believe that he has only been in treatment since March 17th. God is so amazing. Truly a miracle. Please keep us in your prayers as we travel back to Greeley.
