What started out as a site to update on our daughter's cancer has thankfully grown into a site to update on our beautiful family of four. Enjoy our journey...

oh happy day!

We have had a few really good days this week - and it has been awesome! We (chad and I) have really gone out of our 'zone' and did a few NEW things with Charli this weekend! Saturday night we suprised Grandpa Borg on his birthday, by taking him an ice cream cake, on the farm! We haven't been there since Christmas. I LOVED IT! We showed her the cows, and she got to study a cat! She played so nice there, it must be a 'grandparent' thing. She was great!

Sunday we took Charli with us to HyVee to get groceries! We went early in the morning, so there weren't many people there...but it was a big step for us! We also took Charli to the park to go down the slide for the first time!!

We had a great weekend...we felt halfway "normal" today!



go daddy, go....let's slide!!

daddy wouldn't let me run the backhoe :-(

So glad to see you all got out and have some fun, doing "normal" things can be hard to get back into when your life just turned anything but. You three make a beautiful family!
