Weekend Review: The show must go on.

While dealing with all the stages of cancer grief, I have to remember that life goes on and I have to keep up. You know that Reba song, "for my broken heart"? " I guess the world didn't stop for my broken heart... It doesn't stop, I think it spins a little faster. So, with that said... Jonathan did his 7th chemo treatment and My little people and I have been trying to act normal. 

Both kids are excelling at swim lessons. They call the parents in the last 5 minutes of class to show up what the kids have been working on. First up- Henry- the instructor took him, placed him in the water, let go and the kid swam three strokes and came up for air and went down for more before she grabbed him again.. I was shocked and impressed!

 Lucy can swim but I wanted her to learn technique. She showed off her moves and I told her what a great job she was doing. She replied with, " I know mom, I told you I could swim and didn't need lessons." (Well sassy mouth I'm going to sign you up for more if you don't watch it.)

 Last week I worked the Rhea Lana checkin. The great part about doing this is you get to see everything that comes in and you get to talk to all kinds of people and all my friends come in.
Example A...
 Speaking of Rhealana...
Here are my treasures.
These are for me

 Lucy



 Henry

 Lunch with my sisters and mama after bible study.









 
 Thursday Henry went home with the Cobles for some Aunt Laura time.
Friday we had soccer practice and Lucy alone time which we spent watching a movie- Lucy's love language is quality time and she was overdue.

Saturday Lucy and I went to the church to help pack meals for Feed My Starving Children. Our church had the goal of packing 1 million meals and feeding 2500 children for a whole year. They exceeded this goal and packed over 1 million meals and were able to feed almost 3000 children.

 After we packed we headed to Lucy's soccer game.

My sweet girl has come a long way in soccer. She is starting to be aggressive and really goes after the ball and she can play offensive equally as well as defense. She even scored a goal!




 Saturday night we took Lucy to Aunt Laura's house to spend the night and picked up Chuy's for dinner.
 Sunday afternoon we got the kids back and we ended the day with family movie night.

 Good weekend had by all. Jonathan is feeling well this morning and recovering nicely from all the chemo. 17 more rounds to go...

God is bigger than this and Jesus can fix-it.
