Waiting on Steven....

So, we have been a busy bunch without Steven. He has been out of town since Sunday morning. He has been in Chicago at a Rett Syndrome meeting. He has been very busy with his research. He has so many things in his pot that he is stirring constantly. However, he is on his way home. Both of the Pollies are in the bed, clean... with teeth brushed, clothes laid out, and ready to start tomorrow. We have had a great afternoon. We went to dance today and then to the Mexican Restaurant near the house. Aubrey had a rough day a school yesterday and she did better today. She is having some adjusting to make from her old school and her month vacation. I am glad that we are having these growing pains now and instead of waiting until the Fall. Hopefully, we will have things nipped quickly. Tomorrow we have another busy day planned. Aubrey has a dentist appointment scheduled and then we are back at dance. Hopefully, when we are done Steven will be home to read to the Pollies. So, that has been our crazy few days.

Simple Sunday

We have not done much today. The Pollies and I went to church. We have a new pastor that started today and we are excited about that. We are going to miss our prior pastor, however, we have to accept new challenges with a smile. The Pollies and I came home ate and headed outside for a small dip in our little pool. Then we took a nap! A great "LONG" nap. Can you believe we slept for 4 hours? I had to wake the Pollies up. It was nice, however it has cut our afternoon short. When we got up it was basically time for dinner! WOW! So, not much to say. We have a good week in store for us. We are having a campout on Friday night in our backyard, we have invited a bunch of little girls and their Daddy's. This will be exciting! I hope we have a small village of tents!

Aubrey's Lemonade Stand

So mission accomplished. One happy little girl! We want to thank everyone for helping. Just so you know that Aubrey decided to donate her money. She wants to give it to the NICU at UNC Hospital. Yesterday she meet with Kim Hamden, a nurse midwife that works with the mothers of the these little babies. She took time with Aubrey to explain about the babies in the NICU. So, Aubrey decided to donate her money. We are so proud of her.

She woke up this morning so excited. She acted like it was Christmas. She basically jumped out of the bed.

All of the neighbors came, even the Muse family came. We were so excited to see everyone.

Thank you Ms. Angel we were so glad to see you!

Chase and Haley were having a blast.

Thanks Mrs. Cindy!!

Thanks for the nice donation Ms. Liz!!!

So, this is their pooped picture. They are acting like they are so tired!
