who stood right up at a window, or a tank, if the boys could scooch in front of them, so they could see things, letting the adults still see over them. We kept such a grip on the boys, too, so not really a relaxing trip for me or Vic. The kids seemed satisfied, and there was a gift shop at the end, so I'm counted it a success, and checked it off our summer list (a couple of the kids had the McWane Center, or an aquarium on their list). What I did see of it, was really neat.
Eli had a good check-up. His numbers were great, so he actually started on time with the chemo. He hit 80 pounds, and they show he grew an

that he is taller. So, that was it for the appointment. We wrapped up and headed out.
We quickly stopped at "Stan and Olie's Fine Mess Museum" in Harlem, GA for me to show Vic and Caleb the wood cars and train this guy was making. If you remember, it's just a workshop behind this guy's house. Then we headed south of Atlanta on Friday to Summit Performance

bearing down on me. We've been to a car show, but Eli's mustang is still being fine tuned from the supercharger installation. Plus, we are expecting the kids' puppy to be here August 27th, so we've been trying to prepare for that, getting her room ready. We've been wrapping up the back yard work with the sidewalk, too, so lots, and lots of normal things going on.
I hate to talk about this too soon, but I am just bursting with thankfulness, and awe that Eli will be starting school. He had his school orientation today, so it is on my mind so much. I should wait until

Please, remember the family of a little three-year-old named Kiki, who passed away at the end of July. And a teen from home that has rhabdomyosarcoma found out that it is growing. Leah is trying
an experimental medicine, so we pray it does something. Thank you for remembering them, Eli, and for praying for research.
