Ah, June. The month wherein this greatness was born (and I'm not talkin' about the blog). ;)
June of 2014 was busy!
We kicked the summer off with swimming lessons, the park, and generally adjusting to NO SCHOOL!
Tyler kicked it off with a trip to India to visit the Rising Star Outreach Campus. If you haven't heard, he is now Executive Director of Rising Star Outreach. They provide support to the leprosy-affected in India: medical support for those who had leprosy (which is cure-able now!), educational support for the kids of these colonies (kids of the leprosy-affected aren't welcomed into the local schools), and micro-loans to help the individuals in these colonies become self-sufficient.
So he arrived at the campus (which houses the school and the dorms where the volunteers stay) early in June.
That's right, Henry is the kid who had to get stitches on his head from a piano recital. Our first ER visit with a kid! They ended up having to knock him out since the cut was so close to his eye and wiggling would not help them fix him up cleanly. Sigh. Welcome back from India, Tyler! :)
The next week I spent a day at Girls' Camp (yay for Young Women!) and got super-duper-nasty stomach-flu sick. I was glad I only stayed the day, even though I was sad I missed out on the time with my young ladies (they are the best!). Then, just in time for my birthday a few days later, I got sick again with a NOT stomach-flu flu sickness. My birthday day I had to cancel lunch with my sister-in-law and Grandma-in-law. Total, total bummer. We held off on celebrating for a few days until I felt like a human again and my amazing friend made me a DELICIOUS decadent chocolate cake.
