Just wanted to thank you all for the sweet comments. We can feel your love and prayers - and we thank you from the bottom of our hearts!
John went on a long bike ride early this morning with a couple of dads here at the house, so this afternoon while he rested, Ellie, Ethan and I were able to go to a show. Sometimes the RMD House gets tickets to special events and today a huge bus took a bunch of us to a bubble show. It was incredible. A man who has spent over 20 years studying and working with BUBBLES put on a beautiful show. Just watching the amazing things he could do with bubbles was mind-boggling. I was in awe of how peaceful and mesmerizing it could be to watch... bubbles. Ellie had a blast. Ethan mostly just wiggled and loudly asked "Is it done yet?" every 5 minutes. When they asked for volunteers, Ethan stretched his hand as far as he could and bounced up and down, hoping to be picked. He wasn't. But all of the kids who were picked(except one from Greece - who was from our group)said that they were from "America" and the man would roll his eyes and laugh. I reminded Ethan that if he was picked, to say that he was from Florida. He said "but Mom, my name is 'Duma' and I'm from Africa." Of course. Kind of a shame he wasn't picked. I also enjoyed looking at all of the stores to and from the show. One store in particular gave me a chuckle: "Daffy's - Clothing Bargains for Millionaires." That just sounds wrong on so many levels. Anyway... I was amused, and I like to be amused.
Goodnight all. We love you and thank God for your care and support - we would not want to do this without you!
