What time is it? Summer Time...

If Brandon were sitting here his eyes would be rolling back in his head.  Hadley is on  a High School Musical 2 kick.  She loves this movie.  Adores it.  I don't know that Brandon could hate it any more than he does.  *ugh*  Even I have had the summertime song stuck in my head.  Maybe I'll add it to our music queue so you can enjoy it as well.  *snort*  

So, summer break is under way.  The kids are all out of school.  We are in Portland.  All of our household goods are in storage and we are technically homeless.  *snort*  We were supposed to be renting a house from some friends in Portland who had accepted a job in San Diego.  That job wound up falling through and now they are a couple weeks from the end of the application process with another church in SD.  So, we're sort of all hanging out in the house until we know what's going on.  Thankfully it's a 6 bedroom house so nobody's sleeping in the living room...yet.  =)  

I have been sick for a little over a week now.  It started out seeming like allergies but it wasn't long before I realized it was obviously not.  I am just now starting to get my voice back...but, it's still all Bonnie Rait-ish. Hopefully it'll be back to normal soon.  =)  I've never had a super feminine voice but, I really don't love sounding like an ultra heavy smoker...or a guy.  *ack*

Keegan is in swim lessons and loving it.  Hadley and Liam will be signing up soon.  Keegan's friend Aubrey was signing up for this session and I decided to let him take them with her.  He's been having so much fun and is so proud of his accomplishments.  =)

Liam, in true little boy fashion, is covered from head to toe in scrapes, scratches, bruises and scabs.  He is a total brut...until he gets hurt...then all he wants is his mama.  It's so hard being four.  Poor Liam.  

Brandon has reported to his new unit.  He's been there for a full work week now and is really impressed.  He's excited to get to work and complete his qualifications so he can start gaining responsibility.  I'm looking forward to the station schedule. He'll have a few weekdays off every week and will have every other Fri/Sat/Sun off.  The only downfall is that when he's working he's THERE.  No coming home/leaving the station etc.  So, I guess it'll kind of be like a business trip or two every week.  Except that when he's home...he's HOME.  =) I think it'll be nice...we'll see.

In case any of you missed it on Hadley's website...she was deemed "terminal" a few weeks ago.  I really hate that word but, it is what it is. We have no idea how long we have with her. I think we may do an MRI at the end of the summer if there isn't an obvious sign of decline.  But, she is on what the medical field calls "compassionate care".  Meaning that we have changed our focus from treating the tumors to keeping Hadley happy and comfortable.  Obviously this is a really hard time for our family.  We would appreciate all the prayers and love you can spare.  

Alright, I'd better wrap this up.

So glad you are safe and sound. Hope the housing situation gets all worked out. I am so sorry that you are sick. I can't imagine the stress your family is under knowing the future for your sweet girl. Know so many of us love her and have never met her and pray for her and for you all each and every day.

it's me - Heidi from the ER.
Just want you to know that my heart goes out to you! I know that I barely know you, but reading about your baby girl has really touched me. Know that I am praying for her. and for you.
Be strong! I can't even imagine...

I am just now catching up on your blog and Hadley's blog. I have no words! You and your beautiful daughter are in my prayers. You are an amazing mother and I am going to think twice before I whine about my "hard" life again. Are you still at Troy and Shauna's? I am coming for a visit in July. Maybe we can all get together. I am praying Ephesians 14-19 for you and your family. That you will be strengthened with power in your inner being through his Spirit to get through days you thought you never could and that you will be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God and His love for you on the good and especially the hard days.
Love you,
