 Seraph's (Fontan) open heart surgery is scheduled for August 30th. We're planning on requesting a day of prayer and fasting for her to be held on the first Sunday in August. More details on that and the surgery later.
This should be her last surgery for 15+ years if all goes well.
Please keep her in your thoughts and prayers.

There must be something going on up there....

I asked my SIL, Safire, to do this with me...and I just noticed she's already posted it.  So, I'm gonna sneak it in. The deal is you just sit down and write for 5 minutes and then you're done - no editing or planning things out.  So, forgive me if it comes out a huge mess.  and here we go!

Cousin H is leaving tomorrow.  She's flying back to visit Safire and her cute family.  We'll miss Cousin H.  She's been coming over more and more.  She takes Beautiful Rabbit swimming.  Seraph LOVES playing with her keys --carries them around the house jangling them like they're some priceless treasure. Strong Bear was brought to tears one time when Cousin H left before he had a chance to say goodbye (he was upstairs and supposed to be in bed asleep.)
We haven't seen Cousin C for a while.
I guess my thoughts inevitably turn towards August and Seraph's looming surgeries. I give her extra kisses every day.  She's so warm.  So happy. So alive.  Really, really full of life.  Tonight Sexy Haqon threw a rubber ducky over and over and she'd fetch it like a puppy dog.  She'd bring it back in her mouth and clink to it tightly with her teeth as Haqon tried to break it free.  She thought it was the funniest game ever.
Yesterday the funniest game ever was me spinning a frisbie on its side (like a quarter).  Fascinating!
We took Seraph swimming a few days ago and she loved it!
I've been practicing comforting her.  She sings the ABC's while she's crying to self comfort.
Time passes so quickly!

Have you done your 20 minutes of reading yet?

 My girlie was bit by the reading faerie at a very young age...
It's not so much have you done your reading....
as hey, turn off your light you're supposed to be in bed SLEEPING!
Her backpack is crazy heavy because of all the library books and personal books she hauls around just in case she has spare time to read.  Now if I could just get her to remember to get her reading minutes signed each night....ya know, so she gets credit for all this reading.
