While the kids were at camp, we had the lovely experience of having John's daughter Belle, and her friend Josh come visit us.
It was wonderful getting to spend time with them.

Last week Denali and I had a fun late birthday day.
Denali and I went out for a late birthday lunch.
I loved it that she wanted ponytails, and looked so young.
As she is 10 now.
Oh this kid is special!

It has been a fun week.
We went to Salina's bridal shower.  That was fun!

 Aunt Sarah and her family came and we got to see them, that was fun!
 We have been checking out the hearts around Lincoln, and have started making examples for school.
and we are hoping this might be the last time Quinn was in this wheelchair.
The new one is in Lincoln.
she will be in this manual chair while parts get switched over.

We had to get out and do some golf, but we have some work to do!
 Finally we dropped kids off at camp this week, so they are out exploring and having fun with Camp Easter Seals!  So fun!

Happy 10th Birthday Denali!
We had a small family party!

We also celebrated Fathers Day.

Then we had to do a 10 year old birthday photoshoot.

Denali finished off her day with a tea party with grandma.

We had the honor of being part of the party to celebrate Lily getting her wish of a service dog.
She is getting training as we speak!
She went on a scavenger hunt and ended at the party.
UNL cheerleaders were there and we got to celebrate with her.
What an honor!  Then we got to play at the zoo for a bit.
A beautiful morning!

Summer school has started.
Quinn started off well, and is working hard with her teacher.
I love to hear this, as new folks might believe
her act that she is not as smart as she really is.
 My other two are having fun learning as well!  #meanest mom ever!
 Quinn and Chrissy are working on accessing a computer and once we get her new wheelchair, I think things will go better.  She is sick of getting in her current chair, and tries her best to get out when she gets into it.  She is giving herself a bruise on her knee from smacking it against her pole for her computer.
 She has also had some seizure activity lately.  That is common for kids who are growing, and kids that are growing up and maturing.  So she has had some shakes and her eyes have been dancing around a few times.  
 She had to have over 6 pokes and we had to go to two locations.  Oh she is so tough!  Denali had a harder time watching her.  Denali would pace the room, ask a million questions, and want to be right there to comfort Quinn, but then would have to leave for a moment to regain her composure.  Oh those girls are so good to each other.
After a morning of pokes, the van stopped working when we got to therapy.  I thought I was handing things pretty good, but I got a you look like you need a shake, shake out of the deal, and good people helped me out, and I now can change a battery!  So I am reminded to be thankful for the small things.  Summer has been so good to regroup and rest and read, and so on.
