It was good to meet you at MDA Camp last week. When Austin got home he went to his room and started crying because he missed his counselor and his room mates at camp. I guess I am glad that he had so much fun that he cried when it was all over. He is already talking about next year. Do you have to get a team up for the Stride and Ride? What exactly is the Stride and Ride?
Hi Kristi, How are things going? How are they doing on improving Vanderbilt? How is your son doing? Austin is still doing fairly well. He still walks and only needs assistance when he has to walk very long distances.
Hi Kristi: Wow, you are a busy mom - and a great one too! Glad to see you here as well as FB :) Congrats again on your dog. I was about to tell you my friend, Patty, just got a cutie from Canine Campanions too (she posted right below me!!!). Nicholas would love a dog. I have to think that one over for a while. I'll work on the van first - then the dog. Talk to you soon!
I was thinking maybe Monday afternoon? We are going to be in Jackson that night anyway for a birthday party. I had totally forgotten about that McDonalds (I'm guessing you mean the one on Highland?) which would be WAAAYYYY better than the dreaded CEC in my book! LOL. What time are you available? Our party is at 7 I think, so anytime before that would be great. I sent you my cell number in the email, but in case it doesn't ever show up, it's 865-292-8746. Or you can email at email@example.com. Thanks so much for meeting us...I'm really looking forward to it!
Hi Kristi! Yes! I would LOVE to get together. We are actually coming to Lexington/Jackson for Christmas. We'll get in next Sunday and be there all week. Are you guys going to be in town over the holidays? Maybe we (all of us from the Jackson area) should get our boys together next week for a holiday lunch or something? Chuck E Cheese maybe so they could play and we moms could talk? Might be fun! Hope you all had a wonderful weekend and ready for the week ahead. Let me know if you're around or would be interested in getting the kids together. Hugs!
