At the Home Front

As much as if may feel like it at times, our lives have not stopped completely.  Ella has started softball and continues to play violin.  She stays busy at church and school and still loves to do arts and crafts projects any chance she gets.  Today is an Easter egg hunt at school.  It's the very first event I have missed since she started 3 year old preschool.  It is killing me not to be there.  I know she is in good hands with her grandparents, but it's still not the same. 

(Ella in her new Flit and Flitter outfit that she received as a gift.  It just thrills her when she gets something in the mail these days.  It's the little things that go a long way with her. Can't wait to see Lucy wearing her matching one.) 
Jack has become more mobile than ever.  He is army crawling and it is hilarious.  Neither of my girls did this, and I just crack up every time he gets started.  He sets his sights on something and will scoot across the floor until he gets it!

(it's hard to get a picture of a baby army crawling.)

The girls also received these great super hero capes from our friends Jessica, Presley and Ty.  Presley decided that Super Lucy needed a Super Hero cape and asked his mommy to get her one.  Of course, they couldn't leave Ella out either.  Ever being the girly girl, Ella chose a bouquet of flowers as her "sword."

We are still overwhelmed by the outpouring of love and support our family has received during Lucy's illness.  The letters and tokens of love she receives every day just brighten all our of days.  Thank you all so much.  I have kept a ledger list of almost every gift, card, donation, etc that we have received.  My goal is to one day send each of you a thank you note.  I have a little idea in mind, but right now I've got to focus on Lucy.  So until I can get started on my "plan," please accept our most heart-filled thanks.
