I'm totally worn out tonight, but thought I'd post a few pictures. Today was Laura's third birthday--three! It's my favorite age. She chose a zoo trip for birthday fun and fun it was. Lucky for us some cousins and grandma were going too. He really wanted to try the digger--so much that he ignored the crowd of people that was gathering, staring at his leg. We arrived before the crowds gathered, but it was busy by the time we left and on the way out he told me, "I'm going to put my hat like this (over his eyes) so that I don't see people staring at me."
We got home and went right to work on a birthday cake for Laura. My sister came over to help out (read: make the cake) and Steven was so excited to be a part of that. Then disaster struck--his crutch slipped on a spot of water on the floor and he fell on his rotationplasty foot. He was crying and more pain than I've ever seen him and I was sure it was broken. (Actually, I still worried it is broken.) He as been taking it easy all night, and is doing okay, but is still in some pain. I talked to his doctor and between the three of us, we decided to try to make it through the weekend and see how he is on Monday. Most likely he will be getting xrays next week. Please pray that it isn't broken!
Even still, Steven is excited about CureSearch tomorrow. He got pumped about the shirts that came tonight and he looked at the fundraising web page--blown away (as am I) that so many people are donating and coming to the walk. Because I never put a deadline on the shirt order, I have had several people tell me after I placed the order that they are coming. I ordered some extras, but there is a chance there wont be quite enough to go around. Sorry about the goof! We will do a first come, first serve thing and hope that most everyone will get a shirt. We can't wait to see so many friends and family tomorrow and know the rest of you are with us in spirit.
