We're kicking off summer at our house today. It actually started when we walked in the door from our last 1/2 day of school on Friday. I snapped all these pictures just after everyone dropped their backpacks and locker contents inside the door and declared, "Hooray! We're on summer vacation!". We have had one family outing practicing our golf swings and putting at the driving range. We've had one movie (Madagascar) and popcorn night and look forward to more family fun like this.
Although this is the first official day of summer for our family we unfortunately didn't get to sleep in. Many of you are praying and following Wyndham's developments as she grows and learns, and you can be thinking of her today. She just left with Chip for an in-depth gait study, which is one of part of the process she will go through to help determine how her surgery will take place later this fall. It's a computerized procedure and shouldn't be painful in anyway. It's more time-consuming and not exactly how one wants to kick off their summer. But we managed to get up early and get her off to this appointment and she even had a smile as she headed out the door.
It's not always easy having medical issues, but they sure are easier to swallow when there are smiles all around. Thanks for caring about Wyndham and her challenges. Our family has been blessed by the support of not only our family and friends, but by many of you we may never meet. So thank you, from all of us as. We look forward to lots of fun and smiles this summer. And hopefully only the occasional medical procedure that disrupts the fun- but still is laced with smiles.
Happy summer to you and yours!
