Life with the oldest sister who loves theater and fashion, a boy who has Hypoplastic Left heart Syndrome, now Heart transplant and partial Liver from Aspergillius, but thinks fishing and electronics rule. The most amazing middle-child-sister-aspiring artist. Also, a girl and her Tethered Spinal Cord Syndrome, Neuro Endocrine Cell Hypoplasia, Lumbar Hemangioma, asymmetrical gluteal cleft, Pectus Carinatum who loves littlest pet shops, American girl dolls, playdates. And one yummy baby brother who has a coarctation and bicuspid valve and thinks super heroes are the best.

Here are all the darlings behind stage waiting for their number... They danced to the newer version of Zippity do dah... I have to give props to my little sis for the make-up job she did on Ry's bruise. You can hardly see it. Ry gets to wear make-up in public four times a year... Oh, she cannot wait for Halloween.

The tap dance was to Boogie-woogie-bugle boy from company B. She doesn't love the hat but she has a darling Garrison Hat and a tie that finish this costume. Daddy brought her flowers and she also got a trophy for her efforts this year...

On to the next thing... Swimming lessons. What a fish. She loves the water. The only bad thing is she is so confident with herself she has gotten in some scary situations in the past. I want her to be able to get out of those situations safely...

Comes up with a smile on her face every time. Even when she is nearly drown. I love this bit of the lesson... "Try and blow bubbles, while kicking with legs straight, I'll hold you arms, keep your body on top of the water, watch out for other swimmers near you, you mustn't worry so much." That is a lot for one little person to think about at the same time. Part of it is social, part of it is lesson. She loves having two friends with her. Kaylee and Ellie(not pictured)
