Ready, set, go!

Steven went to school all day yesterday and he's back this morning. He may only go half the day because he doesn't know if he can handle the "unpleasant aromas" (his words) of the cafeteria.

After school, we met some of his cousins for an Easter egg hunt. There was a perfect break from the rain. Steven said it was the best hunt ever--his favorite part was that he got mostly coins instead of candy ("money is much more valuable than candy") and there were no limits of how many he could find. I loved this picture of them waiting for the "go."

Needless to say, with a full day of school and an egg hunt, he hit the pillow hard last night. But all in all, I think he's doing quite well.

A few weeks ago, a friend of mine from Columbus sent me this article that I loved. It's about a boy with a rotationplasty who plays baseball. I love these stories!


  1. What a cute picture. They really lucked out with the weather. I liked the article too very interesting.

  2. Remind me to pull that picture up any time I need a pick-me-up. Andrew's face is phenomenal.

  3. great photo and uplifting article! yay for good days.

  4. Great story. We watched a few of the videos with Ben a couple of weeks ago. I like trying to explain the rotationplasty to people.

  5. I just watched a great 'I'm a mormon' his name is jarem and he is a cancer survived and amputee. I don't know how to forward it to you but I bet you can find it.
