Last nite Av and I stayed up late, until 1am, as she is leaving at 2am over nite tonight for a DC/New York trip with her social studies teacher and 40 some other students. I have to say I'm SO Jealous that she is going. All of her site seeing ventures are on my bucket list. I can't wait to hear about her trip when she gets back at the end of the week. This is the first time for her flying (well she was an infant her first time) so she is excited and I am nervous, lol. I would have LOVED to go as a chaperone. Even though I have been kidding her and giving her a hard time about her NOT wanting me to go along, I know that my body would NOT be able to handle the fun filled hard core 4 day schedule . MS really SUCKS!! As I said the first day starts at 2am and once they get there it's GO TIME to fit as much in as they can. They will be on the road by 6am and walking miles n miles n miles everyday and getting back to the hotel late at night. Just enough time to crash, reboot to do it all over again. They are going to the Arlington Cemetery, the Lone Solider, White House, Statue of Liberty, 9/11, Central Park, shopping in Time Square, see the Broadway show "Wicked", and many other stops along the way. I hope it's a trip of life time for her, I know it would be for me, especially to go without parents at her age.
We had some great end of school year fun ~ Av and I got to march in the Memorial Day parade for Memorial Day which starts in downtown Menasha and goes to downtown Neenah.
After the parade Danny, Emma, myself and another band mom took ALL the uniforms to the laundromat to be cleaned. Once they were smelling and looking good again we took them back to school so they are ready to go for next year. Danny enjoyed being out and about for the day. I think his favorite was watching all the kids walking the hallways when school was let out. He just loves all the commotion ..... would be going into to 7th grade next year so this school is where he would have been going too :(
I coordinated the 8th grade end of year dance. What a great time it was!! I wasn't sure how it was going to go, but I got many great reviews from parents, students, and teachers. Here's some of our decorations and fun
Unfortunately before heading over to set up for the dance I headed over to say my final good byes to our dear friend Nick. His passing was sudden and unexpected, he had a shunt malfunction while at school. He is a true hero and gave the ultimate gift of organ donation..... he was able to donate his corneas, kidneys, and heart. Nick was a great friend of ours, we are blessed to have hung out with him and made some wonderful memories. Until we meet again sweet Nick.....
We've packed lots of fun in the last few days already ~
Boating, tubing and wake boarding
Got to celebrate Ms Aleana's daughters first bday
Danny has been pretty good lately. He went down to CHOW for the day to have a bronc done in hopes they could figure out this extra fluid his been hanging onto in/around his right lung since November. Unfortunately they didn't find any answers for us. Once his Pulmnologist returns back to the office I'll have to a pick her brain as to what the next step may be.
He has been experiencing more neuro's lately and I haven't put my finger on as to why. He continues to stump me and physicians......he's lucky he's so darn cute!! We are on the look out for another nurse to come hang out with him as another nurse is leaving. We are very sad that she is leaving, but we are happy for her next adventures.
Very exciting that Danny got a new van to cruise the town in ~
Danny's runner Ms Annie continues to send him wonderful medals from her races :)
