Today is mostly business as usual for us. This is the busy time of year if you're a farmer, so Luke is in the field doing summer till (basically using a giant rototiller to kill weeds) and Josie and I are going to hit the pool in the backyard after lunch.
Fireworks are at the fairgrounds this year so we'll be able to see them really well from our front yard. I think we'll grill brats and then camp out on the lawn to watch...
Marie is doing pretty well, still more seizures than normal but she's teething (I think) so I'm not too worried at the moment. We decided not to do any more things with meds until we see her Neurologist on Wednesday next week. Josie is coloring at the moment. Our WONDERFUL hospice nurse brought her a coloring book about princess brides and she is going to get every page colored I think. I had an awesome talk with my little (taller) brother this morning. He's the funniest person I know, it really brightened my day (this would be Mickey the hippie, although he's actually more of a cowboy in reality). He's been home for the summer working my parent's ranch and it's 8 hours away across the state (down by you Michaelene) so we haven't seen much of him for the summer. His world is all cows and alfalfa fields at the moment. He's coming to help with wheat harvest next week and Josie and I are so excited to see him!
Don't you just love this Kenny Chesney song? My sister Annalee is probably the biggest Kenny Chesney fan in the world. For some reason this one just seem's to fit Marie. I cried the first time I heard it, and I've been trying to have less emotional music lately but I just love this song too much not to share it for a little while.
I hope everyone has a wonderful long holiday weekend (although for us it doesn't feel like much of a holiday, just another day). Much love-
