Career Day 2009

As promised a picture of Evan and his heart buddy Caleb dressed up as Dr.'s for Career Day.

We are counting down days for Disney!!! Munc made Evan a paper chain for counting down and he remembers every morning to tear one off - it is so exciting seeing that paper chain get smaller and smaller.

We are also planning a small Halloween party at our house the weekend before we leave. Evan LOVES Halloween and this has been something he has asked to have for a long time.

I Love Fall!

Career Day

I feel like I've been horribly neglecting this blog. I have just been so busy. I have been checking in on all of my blog friends although sometimes I don't leave a message I'm still checking!
We had our 4th Annual Team Brave Hearts golf scramble last Sunday and it was very successful. We also had our annual bookfair with Usborne and Pampered Chef this past Thur. night. In between I've been working under lots of stress and taking Evan to school and helping with homework and not to often cooking dinner (I know, I know.) My work is changing so much - I know I'm going to miss the way things have been for the past 7 years. We sure have had it nice. :_(
Evan is still loving school. I'm so proud of him. I was really concerned with how the transition to elementary school would be for him and I was pleasantly surprised. Evan has also started counseling with a counselor that works with kids at the hospital where he had his surgeries. Evan has been very emotional since his surgery in October and very afraid to be alone at any time. I think he has done just awesome and was hesitant to voice these concerns but also didn't want to regret giving him an opportunity to talk to someone. More on this to come - we have only had 2 appointments.
Yesterday was Career Day at school. We found some kid scrubs and Evan became Evan MD Cardiovascular Thoracic Surgeon! He looked so cute!!! His little heart friend that goes to school with him was also in full Dr. gear. His Mom took pictures of the two of them together so I'll post those once I get them. Enjoy the pictures of Evan yesterday before school!
