Elizabeth saw the orthopedic Dr. today. The Dr. says that Elizabeth is getting stronger and looks really good. Throughout this past week she has had a significant decrees in pain. For this we are so thankful. She still can't jump around and go crazy but was told to just use common sense. If it hurts STOP!:P She has another appt in 21/2 week just to check how things are going. However, the Dr. said that if she is doing great that we can cancel. Sooo, we won't bet going to PE tomorrow, but I don't think it is that big of a deal since it's raining here like crazy anyway and I do NOT want to be out in it all day.
I can't believe that school starts next Monday! WOW! Where did our summer go. I am not even close to being ready. I will have to jump into overdrive to get everything done. However, with that said, we WILL be ready and start school on time. I think Rebekah is getting a little excited about starting back but doesn't want to admit it. Elizabeth is not looking forward to starting back but she is also almost 13. Enough said!
Mike's birthday is this Wednesday. We are looking forward to celebrating. However, we probably will wait til the weekend since he is just so tired during the week. We have a lovely painting for him that a local friend did. It is of two blue footed boobies (birds for those that don't know). I think it will remind him of the tropics, diving, and the ocean. Elizabeth's gift for her dad is a song. He has been on her for some time now to learn Moonlight Sonata on the piano. She has been practicing for months now without his knowledge and plans to play it for him on his day. Rebekah is not sure what she wants to do yet, but I am sure we will think of something quite special.
Well, that is all for now. My love to you all.
