So our visit consisted of interviews, video shoots and public speaking instead of our usual round of needle sticks, MRIs and anxiety. What a nice change! It was a fabulous week and we got to explore downtown Memphis because we were staying right off of Beale Street so that was fun too. We just love to go to the Peabody Hotel and see those cute ducks! We also visited with our favorite people which is always the best part of our trips to Memphis. We don't have to return to St. Jude until the end of May for scans and a check-up. Our next commitment/event with the Sterling team will be in September when they take all of us to Disney World to rally the sales troops. In the fall they start selling a plush animal until January and all the proceeds go to St. Jude. Ellie and Roman's artwork will be on the stuffed animals tag. So this fall go and buy a bear or two... We are going to make it a vacation and stay in Florida for a bit after our meeting with Sterling. So cannot wait for that!
Emma has started field hockey. She had practice last night and scored 2 goals. She will be going out for field hockey in high school next year so I am hoping she excels this Spring and finds her passion with the game. Ellie is taking tennis lessons from a neighborhood girl who is on the high school tennis team. I am hoping to get her on a team this summer.
Steve and I are looking forward to going away this spring. Maybe up to Cape May NJ. They are known for great birding. Finally, the pear trees are blooming or just about to. The daffodils are up as well and there is lots of pretty green popping up all over. I so love spring and all the newness. It will be warm this weekend too! (high 70's) Woo Hoo!
