I have a bunch of photos to update for this super busy month.
We attended a fund raiser car show for HopeKids.
Food trucks and really expensive cars made for a nice afternoon out.
The boys were more interested in playing with the hotwheels they got at check-in.
There was a big variety of interesting vehicles
If we could afford a “mid-life crisis car”, this is what Bill would pick!
This car was actually a metallic ruby red color
We all loved the paint job on this one
These car owners are also some of HopeKids’ biggest donors, so we appreciated the event.
One day, the boys really wanted to “do some science” so we had to try the diet coke and mentos combination.
You have to put in a lot at once for the best reaction
We made it through two solid weeks of Intensive Feeding Therapy and Brendan was doing very well. He is making great progress, even if it is slow. Then Trevor picked up a nasty virus at school and had some bad croup attacks in the night for a few days. Once he was about over it, Brendan got it. He was scary sick for 10 days and is just now feeling better. He fought the virus but ended up with a sinus/double ear infection. He is still finishing his antibiotics and is still on oxygen. Now we are seeing if he can pick up where he left off in eating. He missed a whole week.
This week, we are being visited by Aunt Beth and Uncle Steve. They have escaped the IL cold to hang out in AZ (and play with electronics sets)
The boys are lounging on their uncle and trying to teach him how to play minecraft.
Beth and Trevor played pillow toss for at least an hour!
Today, Trevor had another tip test. He went through his stations demonstrating his techniques.
Trevor knows his moves pretty well, but in the super busy gym where they are testing so many kids, he freezes up. He has a hard time focusing.
He earned the tip on his belt, but he was told he needs to do a lot of practice before his belt test. He says he is serious about ninja school and he will practice really hard.
My brain is still feeling foggy after such a busy and stressful month. I hope February is kind to us.
