Saturday, at the Pool, on the 4th of July
The 4th of July was a lot of fun. Jeff's sister, Marion, came out and treated us to a weekend at a local resort. The big draw was the pool but the local wildlife (lizards, rabbits, birds, oh my) and food was a big hit too.
Even the dog, Cocoa, got a vacation... and love it. I think Aunt Marion might just love the dog more than us, ~grins~
Life is pretty good at our house. We are expecting some more visitors to arrive for the week. Jeff starts another long round of chemo (we have to say good-bye to the hair he finally grew). The kids start back to school in a week. I know I'll blog about that. Andrew will be in High School and Catherine in Middle School. I don't know if my nerves can handle so much change. It's been a big year so far.
It will be the year that Jeff and I talk about in our old age (in an old age voice) "remember back in '09 when Obama was elected, you came down with Leukemia, and the kids seemed to grow up so much in just 1 year. Now that was a year. What a year."
