Blessed to Be Busy

Hello! It was a busy week, but a great week! For starters, check out Georgia's guitar solo from Thursday's recital, and make sure to look for the high-five from her pal, Jenna, at the end - so cute:

Everyone played so well - it was very impressive. Next up was the Parkside campout over the weekend. We drove out for the evening's festivities of s'mores, a fairy hunt, and the campfire sing-along, but apparently missed the big excitement - rain and HAIL! Nobody seemed to mind too much, though, as the running, hiking, and swimming started right back up again after the storm. Fun! But we had some tired girls with us on the way home:

Ivy, Georgia, and our friend, Gracelyn snoozing
(pardon the terrible phone picture!)

This is the time of year that things really ramp up at school, and the weeks fly by. We're just so thankful that Georgia is healthy and able to enjoy all of the fun with her friends. As you know, getting back to school was a huge motivator for her throughout the first eight months of treatment, so she is taking full advantage of every day. And Ivy couldn't be happier for her. It's really wonderful to see.

As we've said many times before, a big part of Georgia's success has been due to your support and prayers, and now we really want to share all of that love and energy with another family - the Smalls. Andrew is the nephew of one of my best friends from high school, and he is in a valiant battle with a brain tumor after nearly five years off treatment for ALL. His mother and grandmother were two of the first people to reach out to us when Georgia was diagnosed, about five months before his tumor was discovered. They offered us so much encouragement and hope, and now, I want to return those gifts and offer them all of you as well. Please, please pray for Andrew, his parents, his two sisters, and the family and friends that love him so. He is a special boy.

  1. We couldn't be more happy for Georgia and your family. It is wonderful to see how the year has flown by.

    PLEASE let us know if there is anything we can do to help Andrew and his family!

    Love, The Bacons
