Summer is here…
What a beautiful weekend. Though the temperature might not have been exactly pool weather on Friday, 3 kids and a pool in your backyard equals pool weather when it really is only pushing 60. Saturday was a much longer dip in the pool. And Sunday’s lasted all morning and into the early afternoon. Monday was a perfect pool day! For me, it means the end of a cold, long yucky winter. Saturday after swimming, the kids and I had a picnic in the front yard. I turned to L and commented on how happy I was to be enjoying the pool, the sunshine and the great outdoors. I reflected on laying in bed and daydreaming about summer time during my post chemo haze. She turned to me and said “Mom, you picked a good time to have breast cancer”. I still appreciate her innocent comments and love that my open and honest discussion about cancer makes her so comfortable.
She is very excited for my 3-day walk and even wants to train with me. She’ll do absolutely anything to raise money and so far both L and B–along with their friends–have sold cookies, vitamin water and lemonade. Without a second thought, they hand each penny over to me for our 3-day team. L is busy planning a carnival in our backyard which sounds like a lot of work for me (and probably a lot of money too). Hopefully she’ll stick to the lemonade stands! Wishing everyone a happy summer!!!
