Tonight is also their dance recital. Yes, Charlie is in dance, much to my dismay. Personally, I don't think the boy needs to be encouraged any more to be the center of attention! He does that just fine on his own. I am glad though that he did it. Talya on the other hand, should be in a tutu with a tiara prancing around, like any princess should! It will be fun to see them both tonight on stage. Talya is a pro and will do just fine. We'll see how Charlie does under the lights. Either way, we will be celebrating at the China buffet afterwards!
Tomorrow is the kids last soccer games. Charlie and Talya's team - the Lions/Princesses - have been a treat. They are a bunch of 3, 4 and 5 year olds. It has been fun to watch each of them grow/ I have thoroughly enjoyed coaching each of them, especially Charlie and Talya. If you haven't kept up with Susie or me on facebook, Charlie dominates on the offensive end, while Talya cleans up on defense. Simon's team - the Lightning - play in the Champion's League as they are 7-10 years old. It has been fun to teach them and coach them. I have loved being Sy's coach each season over the last 3 years. Sy does an awesome job in the goal and is developing into a good field player.
In the midst of all this Susie has been doing great. It seems that the side effects of the chemo - nausea, dizziness and tiredness - are all wearing off. She has seemed more "back to normal" and it has been a joy to see. We had another good visit with one of her doctor's this week, and continue to be hopeful about how her brain is healing. We are very happy!
As we've gone through a very happy week, we ask you to pray for some friends that are going through some harder times:
- Bekah & Eddy - our neighbors - Bekah had major back surgery and is coming home after 12 days in the hospital. Her recovery has been quite challenging.
- Craig & Tracey - Tracey's brain tumor has come back. Please keep them in your prayers. www.caringbridge.org/visit/traceyclarke/journal/
- Team Thompson - our dear friends are moving to Rwanda tomorrow with their 3 adorable kids. We said good bye to them over the phone today and Talya starting crying. /http://www.thompsonsinrwanda.blogspot.com/. They are
- April & Steve - April's brain tumor has also come back for the 4th time. She is currently undergoing chemo. http://www.youcaring.com/medical-fundraiser/help-for-the-bohannons/59279
