It's Been So Nice...Busy...But Nice

We've had 17 wonderful days at home and we hate to see it come to an end. But, I suppose there is no point prolonging the inevitable. So here we go. But before we do, we just wanted to share with you some of the fun we had during our break. We managed to pack quite a bit in our precious two weeks. Our schedule included five trips to various doctor's offices, outings to the Udvar-Hazy Air and Space Museum annex in Dulles, Frying Pan Park where the boys got to see lots of farm animals, a movie about flight in an IMAX theater (which, you guessed it, was a hit with Adam), as well as a picnic at Olde Isaac Walton Park where we hoped to see some geese, but found a big lake covered with mossy stuff instead. We also had a special visit from Grandma and Grandpa, and to top it all off, a rousing birthday party for me that really turned into a party for the boys. It was exactly what we needed.
The boys at Olde Isaac Walton Park...where there were no geese....
Adam must inspect each dead leaf...
Dad and Russell at the park.
It's a great place to be-Grandpa's lap.
Grandma Lynne always has a good story.
Just gettin' ready. The suspense is too much. Can't wait to sing the entire "Happy Birthday" song....gotta blow out the candles!!!!!!

Good luck Adam and Janna! You're both such a good example to our family. Janna, you amaze me with your optimism in a time of unimaginable stress. And Adam, for the smiles he continues to give no matter what he's going through. I hope you know that this whole experience isn't just a growing chance for your family-it's for everyone who knows and loves you.
We love you,
Susan and family

Thanks for the pictures Janna. They will always be special to us. How do I get copies for my refrigerator?

Hurray! Some family fun time. That's what we all need.

I was a big airplane fan when I was a kid (and still am). I wish I could have seen the look in his eyes when he saw the displays at the museum. Good times.

My prayers are with you always (of course you know that).

Hi boys!

Good luck to your entire family. We are all thinking of you. If there's anything we can do for you, just let us know. We will be at Children's for our monthly tea/meet & greet on September 22nd I believe. We hope to see you then.
Hugs to you and Adam,
Sheri Schaffer

Hi Janna,

Love the picture of Adam with the birthday cake! I'm glad that you all have been enjoying your time at home.

I'm praying for Adam and your family!

Your pics are beautiful. What a talent you have, Janna. Our prayers are with you and we'll be fasting on Sunday. I'm glad you had a wonderful two weeks together playing as a family.
