Back to School!!!

I can't believe in less than a week we will be heading back and forth to Grand Rapids!!! This summer has just flown by! :( Although we are sad that summer is coming to a close we are excited that Alaina is going to be getting back into school and that means some major therapy! Also, everyday is just one day closer to us leaving for NJ and getting her surgery done! She has a doctor's appointment on the 5th of September. This will be a physical to ensure the doctor that she is healthy for surgery. Also, she needs to have an EKG done and blood work. One more step closer!

Pray for Alaina, she recently got the flu and hasn't been able to keep anything down! It's been a rough 36 hours in this household!

It's now a MEMORY!!!

These are just a few pictures of the event on Saturday! We had a blast and I am happy to say that it is now just a memory!
In case you are all wondering the grand total......just over $13,000
Praise God, he has supplied us with what we need again and again!
This amount will cover the cost of her surgery almost to the penny!
If you still feel led to give I am leaving the donation button up. Alaina attends a special school for children with Cerebral Palsy and Spina Bifida the cost to attend for the year is just over $15,000. We know that this is expensive, but we feel that this is the right place for her at this time in her life!
Thank you to everyone that made this fund-raiser possible and your generosity is immensely appreciated!

Just ONE more week!

I can't even believe that the 16th is creeping up so fast! It seems like just the other day we were sitting at Pizza Hut talking about what we were going to do? That was in February! My how time flys! I am so excited for it to be here, and for it to be over with.

Hope to see many of you next Saturday. It should be a fun day for the whole family and I know my kids are really excited and they really don't know what it is they are excited about :) Although now that they know the Fire Truck is coming they are just that much more excited! It will be fun
