Checking In

It’s been a while since I posted, so I thought I would let you guys know what is going on with Nick.

He has had a REALLY great start to the school year.  He has been struggling with a sinus infection for a few weeks, but he is getting better.  We actually went and played tennis last night. 

He went to Chapel Hill on Wednesday – his weight and his lung function were down, but we contribute that to the sinus infection. 

He has a new special “friend.”  Her name is Ashley and she is good medicine for him. 

We are all busy with life…John is working hard, as usual.  After a long, wonderful life of service, his truck passed away and we had to purchase a new car.

Miranda just celebrated her 14th birthday.  She got an electric, acoustic Fender.  It is solid cedar and it is gorgeous!   

I started work in my new job as a 7th grade Language Arts and Social Studies teacher at  the middle school I attended.  It is so wonderful to be back where I grew up.  I am actually teaching the children of some of the people I went to school with – and that is hilarious.  You can look at some them coming down the hallway and be able to say, “Hey!  I know exactly who your mama or daddy is.”  🙂

Brian and Heather are doing well also.  Heather has a new job and is LOVING it and it is so hard to believe that Kailey will be a year old in a few days.  She is growing up SO fast.

SO…we are all doing well.  We haven’t fallen off the face of the earth.  I have just been so busy.  I’m going to try to do better.  If you have a Facebook, look me up and friend me.  You can definitely keep up that way.  We are so thankful that Nicholas is well and that everything is going along smoothly.  Thanks for checking in.

Miranda Update

OK – the doctor said there is a crack in the cartilage of her ankle – which is the growth area.  I understand him to say that her growth plate is cracked.  She will be in a cast for a month.  She is in good spirits.  She called me herself.  Her cast is going to be hot pink.  Now, because it is in her growth plate, we pray that it heals the right way. We are thankful it’s not a break.

No news on Nick yet…
