Scenes from Our Week - Week 40

Sorry for the lack of posts this week.  I feel like I am still playing catch-up after being gone two long weekends in a row.  Then this week I was gone everyday for a class I was taking to keep my Substitute Teaching License.  Nights were busy and if they weren't I was playing catch-up after being gone during the day.  Where are those lazy days of summer?????

I also wanted to update you on my mom.  After having a PET scan this week, the results showed abnormalities in the mass in her lung.  This was not expected and has been a huge shock for us.  The next step is removal of the mass and I expect that to be soon.  We meet with a surgeon this week.  So, if I am missing from here, know that I am spending time with my mom and will be back soon.

Reagan had her last T-Ball game on Sunday and even though it was a hot, hot game,
 she always had that smile on her face!

We went to the neighboring town on the 3rd for fireworks.  
Even though the show was short, there were some awesome displays. 

4th of July isn't complete without sparklers.  
Patrick got burned once when he was younger, so he opted out of the sparkler fun.

On Friday night, I was outside watering my flowers when I looked up and saw this gorgeous view. We are lucky to see so many beautiful sunsets and I love taking pictures of them.
So much so, that my friends have started calling me "Sunset Stacie".

I was able to get some niece time in on Saturday as we celebrated with Kara for her baby shower. 
 Aren't these sisters gorgeous?  I can't wait to meet that baby boy!
He will be loved and spoiled by so many!  September can't come soon enough!

Please continue to pray for healing for my mom as well as for the doctors that will be performing this surgery and planning for her care.  This has all been so overwhelming and I know the weeks ahead will be stressful, but I plan to soak up all the time with my mom and family that I can.
So, if I tend to be a little MIA on here, please understand.
