We are so blessed!

I would like to start with a huge thank you to each of you who have said kind words or lifted our family up in prayer this last week or so. We are extremely lucky to have such wonderful family and friends and we appreciate the concern and love that each one of you have shown to our family during this difficult time. Thank you to our family for taking care of Cassidee for us. That was one less thing to worry about!
I have to throw out a HUGE shout out to my wonderful husband. With absolutely no prompting on my part, he is the one who took care of all our "business" last week. He let me call and tell anyone that I wanted to, but he called all of our family, our friends and church friends, and the teachers at my school to let everyone know what happened. He made sure that I was resting, that I had food to eat, and that I didn't have to "deal" with anything all week. He took me to IKEA and Rooms to Go to go furniture shopping---to get my mind off things---which are generally places he would like to avoid. All of this to say, Jeremy was completely amazing last week. I, of course, think he is great on any given day, but he went above and beyond for me last week. I am so appreciative of all that he did/does for me (and Cassidee)
I love, love, love you, Jeremy Broom!
And, just to let you know---Jeremy, Cassidee, and I are out at Camp Deer Run all this week. Jeremy is the nurse (he prefers "Doctor") at camp this week. Cassidee and I just tagged along for the fun of it. Cassidee had a rough time on Monday--loud kids, hot weather, allergies....but today she was wonderful. I think she is really going to like it out here. Janelle has been hanging out with us also, and I think that Cassidee has made a new friend. We are enjoying getting to know her a little better! We'll have some great pictures to post when we get home on Friday....especially ones of Cassidee and her daddy on their first Sadie Hawkins date together....
One more thing in this long, boring post and I'll let all you avid readers off the hook---
My sister Kayla got engaged last night!!!!
I won't be able to talk to her until Sunday. She, her boyfriend/fiance Camron, his parents, and his sister and brother-in-law are on a cruise. Camron popped the question last night before they went to dinner and Kayla called my mom with the news. I am sooooo happy and excited for them! Jeremy's glad there will be another boy in the family!!!
Congrats to the future Mr. and Mrs. McCandless! We love you!!!

Say hello to Nurse Broom I mean Doctor Broom-hope he hasn't had anything to life threating.

So glad you were able to get away to our little "Heaven on Earth" I know that your time at CDR is doing you so much good...hopefully Cassaidee is still in her I love CDR groove and not in the "I HOT and TIRED" groove.

See you saturday
