Yesterday, we visited Suzie at Shepherd’s. She seemed great and is improving. The poor thing. I pray she gets better soon and can return to school in January.

Ben and Brian went with me. They were very sweet. Brian was a little nervous, I think. He wanted me to go with him every where and was clingy. Ben was fine, and actually he ventured over to play with others. I think all the people in wheelchairs sort of freaked him out. I’m glad he was able to experience the normalcy of it all, though. There was a big cook-out in the garden there.

Also, yesterday Brian went to a birthday party at a bowling alley for his friend Zach. I loved that Brian was having the experience of his own friends, apart from Ben. Ben and I went on a bike ride and FINALLY got his hair cut.
