Where are we?  Well that's a very good question and it all depends ~ last week Av n I drove over to Indianapolis for the Olympic trails, this week I drove 5 of the divers from our club to Iowa City for a dive camp, next week the 4 of us + Emma are driving over to Missouri for Dive Zones, and depending on where Av places in Zones Southern Georgia could be in our future travels.  In addition to driving across the US the camps that Av is involved in are in full swing. I know that this summer is going to FLY by, but we still manage to have some time to chillax
Pool TIME with good friends!!
 
 Danny hanging with his good Bff Raymond
 Mother of the year award goes to ....... ME :(  Sorry Danny
 Fathers Day we even got Dan in the pool ~ look he can fly
 Unfortunately his son gets his sun burn ability from his dad.....after a short time in the sun Dan was fried and very uncomfortable for days
 
Av had me try body painting on her....my art isn't too shabby 
Danny Sporting his new shirt that Ms Emma's aunt made for him ~ all ready to go to his Orthopedic follow up
 Hips are good ~ here you can see his right hip gurdlestone procedure.  Where they cut off the femoral head and removed the socket due to his chronic hip dislocation.   Best decision was to due this for Danny....his pain is gone.  He even goes in the stander still so win win!!
 Check out all that hardware......he's my bionic boy
 Danny's been out of sorts lately and we can not put our fingers on to a good reason why
 We ran labs which were off but we really haven't found a solid reason as to why they were so off.  We did find a issue with his teeth so that bought him a ticket to the dentist this week to have it looked at more.
 Even with Dr K mucking with his mouth by removing the chipped tooth lodged in his gum Danny still managed to give a sass smirk.
We've gone to the Farmer's market
 I will hold your hand and be by your side. Your hand fits in mine as it will Always be a promise that you will not have to do it alone. I will be your voice, your eyes, your legs and show you the world, be your protector, and comforter. I chose you, in a hundred lifetimes, in a hundred worlds, in any version of reality I'd find you and I'll always chose you. Thank you for being my Hero!! 
 Look how tall he is.  With his last set of xrays it looks as his growth plates have closed so he will not get much taller then what his is now
 We've been doing more prone "tummy" time with him.  It's not his favorite but ..... suck it up!!
 Cheering him on.....yes I'm a mean mom
 We went to the movies......wow, they have recliners now.  SWEET and Comfy
 The seating arrangement with a wheelchair isn't the best now with the recliners so Av n I had to sit behind these too clowns.  Someone please tell Danny it's summer and the winter hat and blankets can stay in the closet
 Tis the season for Family photos..... our preview outfits
 Can you tell how impressed he was?
 What a beautiful young lady
 He Cleans up pretty nice?
 Now the hard part....waiting to see what she captured.  I can't wait to see them!!!!!

So exciting that our good friend Nick's memory is staying alive....I started paying it forward with these cool cards his mom had made.  I'm sure he put a smile on someones face today at the cupcake store and Jimmy John's.
Off to Indy to see the Olympic Dive Trails.... what an amazing experience.
 of course we got stuck in some crappy traffic .... our 6hr trip ended up being 8
 We had a nice hotel room where we just relaxed and ordered room service
 So awesome!  To be in a building with some of the best of the best divers in the US.

 We met up with Av's coach, his wife, and their son
 Inspiring!
 Future!

I took a BIG step and got LASIK done on both my eyes.  I have to say I was freaking out!!!  This was a HUGE anxiety trigger for me.  I mean it's my eyes!!!  It went very well and I'm glad I did it, now I just wait for my eye to completely heal the next 2-3 weeks to see what the final results are.  I can see/read so much better, but my distance vision has blurred out more.  I've been told his is pretty normal and things should come back as my eyes heal and my brain adjusts to my "new" eyes.
Only Ms Emma would be enjoying watching my surgery ~ lol
You can tell how concerned he was
She taped it too.  Here is where they put the bracket in my eye holding it still while they cut the lens
video
This video shows a different holder in my eye, the flipping of the flap cut, the laser corrects the imperfections, and putting the flap back in place. video
 The flap heals over within 48hrs, now isn't that amazing!  There is no touching the eye area for 3 days other then putting 3 different eye drops in my eye 4 times a day for the next 2 weeks.  3 days after the surgery I was on my way to Iowa driving the kids to camp.  The ride wasn't too bad I just had to stop here in there to put drops in my eyes.

Iowa City Bounty~
 Her dorm room
 She'll bleed black n gold ~ lol  Her heart continues to be a Hawkeye for her college choice.
 The whole crew is ready to get their dive on
 before the camp officially started they were all watching the Olympic dive trials
 Despite 3, yes 3 fire alarms over nite starting at 1am....they are look like they are still having a good time
