Summer Fun

We have been having a great summer. The boys both went to Ronald McDonald sleep-away camp last month and had a blast. David wasn't sure he wanted to go but since Ben talked about it nonstop for the past year David decided he would give it a try and ended up having a great time! Of course, I was a bit of a mess with both boys leaving but was so happy for them to have this adventure. The rest of the summer we have been trying to be a little more relaxed than usual with less camp time and more family time and play dates. It has worked out well and in our extra time we have been swimming and the boys have been taking tennis and golf lessons.

Ben had an amazing check-up again last week and his numbers continue to be strong. We are only a month away from the one year milestone since the end of chemo and the doctors have said that since he is doing so well that he will only need to go in for blood draws every 2 months!! This has been a long road but things are going so well now. We are so thankful for all of the support from doctors, nurses, family, friends and sometimes even strangers!
