I haven't posted in what seems like ages! It's been super busy around here and I have been really sick with a sinus infection as well. I am finally starting to feel normal again after a round of antibiotics. I'm hoping to post more often now and finally get another photography tutorial done soon.
Last week I started feeling terrible and finally went to the doctor and started medicine on Tuesday. On Friday my aunt was having a biopsy done in Mountain Home, so my Mom, Ana Kate, and I drove over that morning to see her and didn't get back home until Friday night. It was nice to see my Aunt Sharlette and my cousin Taryn, but the biopsy wasn't good news. My aunt was diagnosed with stage 4 colon cancer and is now waiting to see the oncologist and schedule surgery. It wasn't the news we wanted, but it was expected. We are praying every day and hoping for a good outcome and to accept God's will in this. Please pray for my aunt's healing and comfort and for peace for the family during this battle.
On Saturday we woke up to a beautiful day! It was warm and sunny so we decided to have a picnic and then hike around the lake in Fayetteville. We walked about 5 miles and some of it on a dirt bike trail, so it took us a couple of hours (of course we were lugging a stroller, roller skates, and a scooter with us). I think next time we'll pack a bit lighter. : ) Ana Kate had a great time and Doug and I even got a bit of a sunburn. I also lugged my camera around the trail, but only ended up taking a few pictures.
Not much else going on here. I have a busy day tomorrow and then next week we'll be keeping Amelia for a couple of days because Amanda is starting back to work. It will be SO much fun have a baby around....Ana Kate is excited too! I know Amanda is sad and anxious to leave her, but we will take the very best care of her. Hopefully I'll post a photography tutorial soon....being sick put me completely behind on everything, but I'm slowly catching back up.
