Business as Usual

James has had a great couple weeks. Since we have been back home, we tried to get back into a routine. School has been awesome for him. He loves it and talks non stop about who is there and what they do. He is,however, having some troubles at home. He is constantly pushing Adrianne down, trying to tackle her, knocking her over, and hitting her. He has spent so much time in time out! He is also conditioned to answer yes sir when you ask him something. So I will say "James are you suppose to hit your sister" His response-Yes Sir. Greg and I have to keep reminding ourselves that its part of his development and also part of having a sibling so close in age. I guess it is nice to see some normal behaviors around here.

We have a special activity coming up. James has been picked by the Leukemia Lymphoma Society to be one of the kids recognized at the Light the Night walk in Houston. Hyundai does a special program where they recognize kids who have survived cancer. He gets to put his hand print on a Sante Fe along with the other kids picked and it will be on display for the month of November. This event was suppose to happen in the Woodlands but because of the hurricane it got moved to downtown.

Things are moving along with my training. I ran the Susan B Komen 5K this weekend and will pick back up with Team in Training and run 8 miles on Saturday.

Thanks so much for keeping up with us. Please continue to pray for James that he would be free from fevers and infections.

Joy, if it makes you feel better, I am constantly on Zoi's case about hitting her sister...and she's 9!! I tell her, "If you aren't going to hug her or kiss her, don't touch her!!" Must be a first born thing.

Also, I came across a family with a son that has ALL. He had his last treatment in June of this year. His website is: www.caringbridge.org/pa/jeremiah if you are interested.

So glad James loves his school. That makes it a lot easier. :)
