Beautiful Life

Hey child up and go; A big world is out there waiting for us to live in every day. Outside you will find, there is love all around you; Takes you, makes you wanna' say; That it's a beautiful life and it's a beautiful world and it's a beautiful time to be here, to be here, to be here. -Fisher

Paul and Claire returned home last night around 9:00pm. Her visit to St. Louis was a huge success. The pin did not need to be repositioned because it had stayed right where it needed to be. She was "lightly" sedated for the possible procedure but instead, they just re-casted her and released her. Dr. Dobbs is still excited about her progress!

They had no trouble making their flight back home. Paul said she did great on the plane for the flight out and back and he even got compliments on her behavior! But, for the life of me, I could not figure out how he took the subway from the airport to the hotel and back with Claire in a stroller, a backpack, a rolling suitcase and a port-a-crib! Did he balance the port-a-crib on his head....on Claire's maybe? Maybe he tied the rolling suitcase to his belt! I just can't picture it!

On another note, Claire went from four doses of antibiotic to two yesterday and this evening I noticed cloudy urine. That is usually our first sign that there is going to be a problem. Hopefully this is will not be the case. At any rate, please being praying for her health.

Gaggle of Kids

Christian waiting for the wave!

The kids and I have been thoroughly enjoying this last summer fling week before we have to get serious about things again. I took all of them to the beach for the day while Claire was in St. Louis and today we all went bowling! I will take the other kiddos home on Saturday and that will officially end our summer. We won't actually start school for a few more weeks but we will spend this time cleaning out all the rooms and sorting and organizing all our school stuff so we can begin.

Noah, Parker and Megan~they could be triplets!
