What has impressed me most about you this month: This month is a little hard to do since I am around you so little. I guess I would have to say how you make your little brother smile. You were very nice to him on the few occasions we saw you which meant the world to him. He misses you very much when you are gone and when you get home he wants nothing more than your time and approval. So the fact that you gave that to him, which is becoming rare, really impressed me.
Favorite thing we are doing this month:
1. Roller Skating: Although I don't like the stinky dances they do (raunchy), I do like watching you skate around, smiling and enjoying life. You look so care free and relaxed it just nice to see you that way. Your not trying to impress anyone or be anything other than who you are. Your just there having fun, singing along to the songs and sadly dancing to some of them as well. Although I still think you do this to annoy me more than anything.
2. Six Flags: Once again we celebrated your cousins birthday at Six Flags. I think we are starting a tradition here, 3 years in a row now. I love getting to take you here, even though you like to ride the swings. ;) We do the water rides, the small coasters, some games, and just talk and walk around people watching and being silly. Its nice to just talk and see you in your element, bonding with family. I think this is the one place we go that no one fights and you all compromise and get along! Maybe we should move in?
3.Bone Marrow Drive: We went to support the American Heritage Girls and Drake went to support the Boys Scouts for a little boy in Drake's troop whose brother has Leukemia. We volunteered for about 3 hours and tried to gain support to help raise funds for medical expenses and also to help find a donor for William. We spent a lot of time on the street waiving signs around and inside we bid on the raffles and you actually won. Of course, you bid on the cupcakes and one 2 dozen, one you took with you and you got a coupon for the other 12. You were elated, me not so much. I think it was good for you to be able to put a face to this disease for it to really hit home with you.
