We have had an overwhelming week of the fall season ramping up to full speed. I am making a feeble attempt to get back to some sort of exercise routine to hopefully still be able to participate in the half-marathon in December. Again, the attempt is feeble, and the key is to loose these 15 pounds that I’ve put on since Eli’s relapse diagnosis. I am a stress eater, so you can imagine how often that is triggered. Caleb and Abbey started full days at school, and Hg had her first day of on-campus homeschool classes. She seemed really excited about it after her first day. Mostly, she was so glad to see all the girls wearing t-shirts and jeans. That’s my girl! But, she did at least have a new pair of jeans. She had a little money for babysitting, so we went shopping for some

money and bought this fire truck. He wanted

We got to go to a great car show this past weekend. Our local Mustang group was there, so it was fun to see them again. Vic and I talk (as in just day-dreaming for fun) about getting something fun to take to car shows, but we would never agree on what, and the girls would not be excited.
Not much more interest in the house. Our realtor is doing pretty much all she can do outside of tossing people off the street into her van and forcing them to look at it (which I don’t want to give her any ideas). In my opinion, if he hasn’t sold by October we should move back in, and I guess, I will try to get a part-time job. Which, good grief, how on earth will I do that with homeschooling, and who on earth would even hire me when I am so undependable and could have to quit any day. Anyway, that is the only thing that is left that we haven’t tried, but I don’t know if my head can hold another hat without breaking my neck.
Please, make your plans to be at Superhero Fun Day on September 13 a Big Spring Memorial Park in Athens. The event is shaping up “super” for Childhood Cancer Awareness month. Check out www.ourlittlesuperheroes.com for details and start picking your Super. On September 12, we are asking schools and businesses to wear superhero shirts or costumes and to have a drive of their own or special day of their own to help raise awareness as well. We are having great feedback for the Fun Day and we really hope this turns into something great for our community and for our cause.
Please, remember Brayden as he struggles in the hospital on hospice care. I think I saw that he has pneumonia now and E. coli. Good grief! What a wretched nightmare for this little family. There are many, too many more, including Makayla and Grant, so include these little ones as well. I’l write again from Memphis!
