Here we go again!

Well…I can’t believe it has been over 2 years since I updated.  So much has happened that it would take me forever to update everyone.  Sooo…I will start with the current status 🙂

Lily is now 9 and even more in love with gymnastics then ever before.  She is a level six and is at the gym over 20 hours a week.  However, there is no other place she would rather spend her time…other then home of course…haha!  She got really sick towards the end of winter/beginning of spring.  She missed so much school that we ended up pulling her out of school and homeschooling.  It was the best spring I have had!  We had so much fun and with the new circumstances I am thrilled that I am going to have a chance to do it again this year!

Riley is 6 and is all boy.  He has more bumps, bruises, and scars then any kid I know.  He loves all sports but his favorite is baseball…imagine that 😉  He had a great spring season and was selected for the Coach Pitch all star team.  Unfortunately he was only able to play one game and then it got to be too much because I was in the hospital.  He is ready for fall ball this year and we will not let chemo or anything else get in the way of him playing.  He also wanted to be homeschooled when we pulled Lily. So, he was also in my “class” this spring.  He also loved it and has requested to be in my class next year! 

Ricky has continued to remain cancer free.  God is good and faithful through it all.  He has been a rock for our family…or a Stone (haha)!  I couldn’t have asked for a more faithful Spiritual Leader for our home and a more loving husband and daddy for Lily and Riley.  As we face this mountain before us, I feel confident and strong having him by my side!

Then we come to me…the hot mess..haha!  I was diagnosed with Stage 3 ovarian cancer on March 1, 2011. I was almost finished with my Master’s in Educational Leadership and through the help of friends(thanks PD!) and kind professors, I graduated in May of 2011.
