Visit from a Giant and his Lovely Wife

Hello out there.  Apologies, it has been a while since my last post.  We are doing well.

A few days ago we had a visit from my giant brother and his lovely wife.  They were in Las Vegas for vacation and drove all the way to Arizona to visit us.  It was so good to see them in person.  My brother is so bright and fun to be with and his wife is his perfect match.  We had a great time chatting.  Thank you Ray and Andrea for taking the time (and the long hard drive) to see us.

The kids were so happy to spend time with them, we got this great picture.

Isabel is plugging away at school.  She was accepted to Camp Kesem again this year, so we will be getting ready for that soon.
Sebastian was accepted as a volunteer for the police department he is an Explorer with.  He is so excited.  He is also gearing up for the Explorers Police Academy happening soon.  Sebastian has done well balancing theses activities and his classes.  I am so glad he can see that he is making progress toward his goals.

Esteban is keeping us all fed and laughing.  He is so much fun to be around.

I have settled into a schedule, I have chemo three times a month on Thursdays.  It feels like I am handling it well.  Everyone says I look better than last year during chemo and I think that is encouraging.  Before the Easter break I was sneaking out to the movies and other public places once in a while.  But Doc says because my immune system is suppressed, I have to limit my public outings so I can continue to handle chemo successfully.  Boo.  Other than that I am crafting up a storm and goofing around with my family and Luci.  Thank you for your patience.  I will try to pop in when I can to say hello.

Have a great Wednesday.
