Long Time No Talk

It has been a long time since I've posted, but that's because life has been... normal.  (My new normal.)

In good news - better late than never, right? - my scans came back clear!  Except for a small kidney stone and osteopenia, I have nothing to worry about right now!  Though cording has started in my arm again over the last few days, but that's another story altogether.

Jamie is doing great at work, and has been traveling quite a bit.  New York, Chicago, Florida, and Washington DC.  It's nice for him to get away, and he is really enjoying his job.

Gisele finished 6th grade (middle school) on a high, scoring the Principal's Award among many others.  She will be in Production (advanced) Theatre next year at the Junior High, and also made the cheer squad, so she has a busy year ahead.  She's also busy this summer; she has completed 2 weeks of camp (church & STEAM camp), and has 2 weeks of theatre camp, a week of cheer camp, and Camp Kesem still ahead.

Miles is completely in love with taekwondo and recently achieved green belt, the first of the intermediate belts, at Fort Bend Martial Arts.  He has started sparring, and we'll be ordering his personal sparring gear and bag soon.  Master Daniel wants him to join the competition team, and he is really excited about it.  He had a great year at school, but is happy to have a break before 4th grade. He loved church camp - his first year going - and is looking forward to Camp Kesem later this summer.  It's a (free!) week-long sleepaway camp for kids with parents who have gone through cancer treatment.

We're preparing for our family reunion and all really excited to see everyone!  The reunion would have been last summer, but everyone agreed to postpone a year since I was going through treatment.  We'll have 12 adults and 12 kids in a house together for a week and it should be a blast!  We'll be meeting at Lake Texoma this weekend!

So that's my current normal.  Busy, achy, and learning to deal with my chemo curls.  I love it all.  I'm grateful for it.  God is good.
