What a wonderful summer we’ve had so far! Hopefully all of you feel the same. It’s sad that it’s coming to a close so fast. The boys have been enjoying their summer vacation so much. It’s been packed with fun!
We went to my sisters downstate. They got to see their Aunts, Uncles, cousins and grandparents. They had a couple of firsts: Going to Sky Zone and going horseback riding. They loved the horses and begged to get their own. Not gonna happen! 😉 I got to go myself and enjoyed every second of it. I understand why people can get so obsessed with horses.
We’ve also had company often and have enjoyed it all. We were able to borrow a friends pontoon and go out into Lake Superior along Pictured Rocks again this year. That never gets boring. If you have never done that, I suggest you go. It’s amazing and breathtaking!!
We spent one weekend in Mackinaw City with family and friends. The boys had a blast in the pool and we got to tour Fort Michilimackinac. That is right up Caleb’s alley. He loves history! Their Aunt Kim also took them out parasailing. That has probably been the highlight of their summer so far. 🙂
July 28th, Jacob had his 2 year post treatment blood work, xrays, MRI, echo and EKG. Praise God all was perfect! We continue to thank Him everyday for Jacobs healing!!! Afterwards, we went to the Bay Beach Sanctuary and Bay Beach. The boys enjoyed going on the rides while Ken and I sat and enjoyed the smiles on their faces. 🙂
We just got back from a week of camping in Brevort. We go every year. This year was the 12th year. We had a blast tubing and just being with family and friends. The boys always enjoy their cousin time. 🙂
Jacob joined cross country this year and it makes me so happy. A little over 4 years ago, Jacob was in a wheelchair, living at Mary Free Bed for a month learning to walk again, graduating to a walker and eventually walking and running on his own. Even though yesterday was rough on him being his first day of practice, today I picked him up and he had a huge smile on his face and said, “Today was so much fun!” That makes my heart smile and fills me with great joy!! So thankful for Gods healing power and each day I have with my boys! 💜💙❤
I will do my best to keep you all updated on how his meets go. He’s not planning on being a top runner, but wants to get back into shape and be able to better his time with each run.
Caleb had a busy day yesterday too. He started football along with getting braces yesterday morning. There’s been a little complaining going on in this house with sore teeth and muscles. 😉
Friends of ours have invited the boys to go to Wisconsin Dells with them next weekend. They are so excited!!! I’m so happy that we are blessed to have such thoughtful friends. 🙂
Thank you for your continued interest in Jacob’s health and for all of your prayers! We see evidence of it every day!!
