One picture, one paragraph…. have you noticed that I’ve just not been able to blog for more than a month? Putting words and pictures together while being awake and on the computer at the same time has been a little difficult for me lately…. we’ve missed a confimation, several wonderful birthdays, 6 weeks of fundraising opportunities for the Archer family, and the most amazing high school graduations and the party after. Oh! And PROM! We missed prom. The. Most. Gorgeous. Photos. Ever.
So i have this secret plan to get caught up, the doctors on Wednesday decided to derease the dose of one of my more neurotoxic chemotherapeutic agents a little bit, so maybe I will be able to stay awake and think and post all at the same time. I still can’t knit,which is really sad but this was supposed to be a mama joy post so let’s not talk about that.
So here’s your picture:
Pure Mama Joy. Thanks to my big kids who have postponed and rearranged summer jobs, my husband who traded shifts with every other doctor in the group, his sister and her husband who are coming to help, George’s godmother, Danielle, and her son Jonathan, who drove here and are staying at the hotel with us…. I am spending this whole week at my very favorite place doing my very favorite thing. We are at Music in the Mountains, the Virginia Suzuki Institute, listening to all these beautiful children make the most amazing music. We can’t even keep track of how many years we’ve been coming to this… certainly longer than Danny’s been alive, past William and well into George now.
We are here. I am here. So I thought I’d push past the biggest wall of exhaustion to post just one picture to tell you that life is good, I am so blessed. No promises for tomorrow, I want to live in the moment, enjoy every second, and my camera has gotten awfully heavy lately. But I’ll try. At least for George, who is not playing the violin but participating in everything else anyway.
Old suzuki posts and this one…. darling little danny photos…. just to tide you over in case I’m too tired to post again tomorrow. And now I am going to crash. 80 % of my children have 8 AM classes 12 miles away. I think maybe they’re going to have to pack their own lunches.
PS – I’ve missed you.
