A Bit of Our Own March Madness!

It seems we have been having a bit of our own March madness with so much happening this past week. Last week Faith and I were both struggling with colds and sore throats which caused me to miss work and her to miss school. I was hoping she would be up to trying wheelchair soccer this past weekend over at her school but she just wasn't up to it.

As for myself, I wasn't sure if I would be up going to a Christian concert in Dickinson, but I went anyway. Me and my friend Sandy had front row seats and I even got autographs from the artistis themselves - Big Daddy Weave, MikesChair and Kerrie Roberts! I also saw another friend at the concert who recently moved to Killdeer - it was so cool to see her there!

While I went road-tripping to Dickinson, Faith spent the whole evening with her dad. I didn't get home until 1:00 a.m. and by 10:30 a.m. the next day, Faith really wanted her mom. I was sleeping in the bedroom with the door closed and all the sudden I heard Faith knocking on my door saying, "Mommy are you in there?" "Mommy wake up!" She had been lying on the floor in the office and scooted down the hallway to the bedroom. She was so cute that I really didn't mind that she woke me up!

The next day we ran some errands then met Grandma and Grandpa and Todd and Barbara at Bonanza for dinner. We had originally decided to eat at China Star but Faith really wanted some mashed potatoes and gravy. It was fun seeing them and we hope they make it to Bismarck again soon!

On Monday, after such a crazy weekend, I was not looking forward to going to work and Faith really didn't want to go to school. We both managed though and then after work I met Rob and Faith at Medcenter for an appointment with Dr. Ocejo.

Faith currently weighs 48 pounds and is about 50 inches tall. We got some really good advice from him on how to go about getting Faith to eat more solids, especially during lunch at school. They were both very excited to see each other. Between the two of them, me and Rob could hardly get a word in edgewise!

Yesterday we had to round up our car at the mechanic's because it hadn't been starting. Thankfully, it was nothing major. Our mechanic lives near the Healing Rooms, so it was convenient to stop in there for prayer. You can never get too much prayer!

Faith is currently in the middle of a week at school where they have different themes for dressing each day. Monday was dress up day and although she didn't want to, she wore her pretty pink outfit with the bow on the shirt.  Yesterday was black and white day and today was wacky today. Tomorrow is celebrity hair day (not sure what Rob's going to do about that one) and Friday is Faith's most favorite day of all - Pajama Day!

Right now, Faith is very quiet sitting here next to me as I type this up. After a busy couple of days, she is exhausted. Once again, though, we are looking forward to a fun-filled weekend with the JOY Breakfast and wheelchair soccer!
