Being Called to Serve

A little less then a year ago, I was a being to called to go on a mission trip to Guatemala. Yes it was something I had always wanted to do but, I kept coming up with excuses why I couldn't go. It wasn't the right time, Noah needed me. The reasons kept coming but something kept telling me you need to go, this is your time. So the planning began.
The last couple of months I again second guessed the idea of me going. Especially when Noah was life flighted for the second time in 3 months and we were very close to losing him the second time. How could I leave him? I've prayed about it and again it feels like it's my time to do go. Noah is feeling the best he has in months and Scott is taking his last 3 vacation days and 2 flma days to stay home with Noah and we got some anxiety medicine for Noah in case he needs it while I'm gone. I also have been talking to Noah about me leaving with pictures.
In one day Mommy is leaving on an airplane.
Mommy is going a Mission trip to Guatemala. 

Mommy is hoping to meet the little guy we sponsor.
Noah I need you to do me a favor and take care of Daddy for me. Can you do that?  He answers with a big grin and a yes.

Please do me a huge favor and please keep our mission team in your prayers and by all means please pray that Noah does well while I'm gone.

Happy Easter

Our first Easter without Dad was  sad and heartbreaking. Emotions were high and things really didn't go as well as they should have. I'm sure each holiday will get better as time goes on.

I just love this picture of Liam snuggled up in his Great Grandpa's sweater. My Dad would have loved to snuggle with him. Liam has got several guardian angels looking over him.

Boris is Doing Great

Boris is doing a great job settling into what he needs to do for Noah.
He has even enjoyed a movie at the movie theater.
He has been finding his place on therapy table during ABR.

He even enjoys going to church with Noah.

He has been a great help through Noah's day throughout his life.

Hey World , Meet Boris

Noah is so excited that his new companion dog came today.

His name is Boris. He is a Yorkie/Dachshund mix. It was so hard to see Bindi leave but we are excited to see Boris and Noah's relationship grow.

They are getting along pretty good so far. They took a nap together this afternoon.

Noah/Kehres Day

Yesterday we enjoyed our Noah/Kehres Day.

I've been wanting to check out the Wizard Oz exhibit at Easton mall.
Susan got to pretend she was Almira Gulch!
Scott got to pretend he was the Wizard!
This is a neat little exhibit where you can change the lighting effects on the Wizard.
A pair of replica ruby slippers!
When Scott turned the  gear the the lights came on.

The Best Shopping Experience

Today we had the best experience while shopping with Noah. It didn't start that way with a child that kept moving so she could continue to stare at Noah. We turned down the next isle and there was a Mom and her little boy. The Mom said Hi to Noah and then proceeded to include Noah in a conversation with her son. I wish more parents took the time to teach their children that kids like Noah aren't any different than them. Please do Noah and I a favor Kids like Noah have feelings and even bleed red.
