Today’s post is all over the board but had lots of updates and thoughts to share……….
I want to update everyone on my family friend, Teresa, who is still at Vanderbilt. I think this is something like day 39 of her stay there. She is still improving, slowly but surely. She still has to have a breathing tube due to the damage to her lungs. She is desperately trying to talk and communicate but the tube is definitely hindering it. She still has to have her colon “washed out” from all of the toxins in her system. Overall, things are going MUCH better in her recovery. Just this week, she mouthed that she wants to go home and also smiled at several friends who came to visit from home. Her oldest son became engaged and she mouthed “wonderful”. Thanks again for the many thoughts and prayers. The whole family has felt them.
So, school started today for Bailey. She is now going to Nashville Christian and is super excited about it. Her grade (5th), only has a total of 40 students. With such a small class, she is sure to get a lot of individual attention and instruction which is wonderful. On the other hand, I think of the size of the classes that I had in school. They were much larger and I had a very diverse group of friends as a result.
Sam starts school on Monday and is also pretty excited about his second year at Meigs Magnet Middle. He’s still not finished with his summer project which has to be turned in next Friday. The assignment required him to read 3 books and then create a newspaper from characters, events, etc in the books. He had to write an editorial, a cartoon, a review, 3 ads and a character sketch. Talk about a lot of work for a summer project in 6th grade!
We have had a great week at the MediSpa – maybe one of our busiest ever. We are in Clipper Magazine and are about to be in CouponMint. It sure was hard to part with the $$ that it costs to advertise in these, but we have already broken even and we still have people calling to book consults and appointments. Thank you, Lord!!
Last, but certainly not least, HAPPY HAPPY BIRTHDAY to my best cuz, Whitney. Her birthday is actually Sunday but I believe she’s been celebrating “Birthday Week” which is something we strongly believe in!! We will celebrate with her on Sunday with a special birthday lunch after church. Have a great one, Whit….love you bunches!!
