The numbers are in…
The Dancing with the Docs Goes Disco raised $73,000 dollars!!!
(If you click on the link above… there is a little video clip of the event from the media… and you will see a little piece of our amazing Madam Chairlady too)
Pretty amazing, isn’t it? I am so thrilled to know that we surpassed our goal by 23% (somebody else did the math… lol) and the last time they did this event they raised $39,000.
I will be so pleased when they announce the opening of the Radiation Bunker.
OK… onwards… I spent the afternoon writing thank you notes… those that really know me, know how much I HATE them! lol They are almost done… so I can be free of them before the weekend.
Today after school, we grabbed a snack and went to watch Sammy’s lacrosse game. Such a physical sport! Ouch! On the side lines was Josh and Zach, with sticks and dirt… then they had a game of “baseball” with a stick and empty pop bottle. I love watching that play!
This afternoon I took Sammy and Tyler out for lunch… and then we went to Chapters for a quick minute. The whole way there, the two of them were being physically… and yet playing.
Maybe one day … after all the chest hairs pop out and their hormones settle they will truly be friends.
I guess I should just accept this constant physicalness as brotherly affection! lol
It ended up being such a gorgeous day out! It just means that school needs to hurry up and be done and let summer begin!
The boys … the 3 older ones… will be getting baptized the last weekend of school. My brother, Kumar will be coming to do the baptisms… and their youth pastors will each play a role in speaking of the boys. I am working out the details still… it will be here, in our blow up pool (hopefully it survived the winter with no holes). We will have a BBQ and campfire. It will be a celebration… with their friends and family to share in this date.
We will be having family coming from the States…(Yah!!!) and it will be a very special weekend, one I hope that boys will remember.
That Monday after school is out… my Sammy will turn 16 years old! How in the world is that possible? I remember turning 16 years old! I can remember it so clearly… as I couldn’t wait to get my driver’s license… (which in the States you can at 16 years of age). I can remember the excitement.
How is it possible that I have a child that is turning 16?
Sanj said to me last night… “I think we get better looking with age…” so I am going to go with that! Yes, I have a 16 year old… and a 6 year old!
Lord, please have mercy!
It’s a Grey’s Night!
