A rough few weeks!

I have not been posting lately. We have had a rough few weeks, and to be perfectly honest...I didn't feel up to it. My little sister Erica (9 years old) got really sick, and was diagnosed with ITP. It is an autoimmune disorder where your body attacks the healthy platlets in your body. She had some treatments done, and her platelet count (which was extreamely low) is slowly going up.

One of the Sparrow children that we worked with passed away. This is the part of my job that ravages me emotionally. We have another child that will most likely be dying in the next few weeks. I have not been myself, and have been so drained emotionally. If you have a chance, and are so inclined, please be praying for the families of these children.

On the bright side, we went down to Cali last weekend to pick up the trailer that my grandparents were giving us, and to spend some time with Erica. While we were there, we got to see all my siblings and Sandy at a BBQ at Stefs house. It was a TON of fun, and great to see everyone. We also got to visit the De Anza flea market with Auntie Lynnie which the boys were giddy about.

Today I went to the Growers Market to get some produce, and found a lady selling GLUTEN FREE baked goods!!!! She let me have samples, and her cookies were divine!! Parker and I inhaled the snickerdoodles, and the chocolate chip cookies were soft and chewy. SOOOO GOOD!! I can't wait to go see her again next week!!
