A normal day at clinic and some new athletic milestones

Nick, Colby and I went to clinic today as Karen is travelling again. Everything was quite routine except that Nick forgot his shoes this morning (now before anyone blames me, I told him, "I saw your crocks outside go out and get them and get in my car". He didn't get them). So he was trying to hide his feet but to no avail as Lori the nurse came in a pronounced to all he had forgetten them. It was pretty funny. Counts are good. We are going to increase the methotrexate next cycle and probably the 6mp the cycle after that.
PLTS: 392
On to my second subject in the title. Nick rode his bike with Karen and Colby to Walgreens on Saturday. This is by far the longest bike ride Nick has ever gone on and I was expecting that he would be useless the rest of the afternoon but we had forgotten about a party at my sisters house so we packed the kids up and headed over. Nick, Colby, Joey and Brian all swam across the lake with Mitchel and Alex. Yes, across the lake. They all wore life jackets but swam the whole thing. It is not a short swim so Karen and Amy went and picked Nick and Joey up in the paddle boat while Mitch, Alex, Colby and Brian all started walking back with the snapping turtle that Mitchel caught. Luckily for them they were picked up by Mitchels friend and drove home. Not sure Colby or Brian understood that the walk was a mile with no shoes on. So Saturday was quite an adventurous day for the boys and of course Tom was hangning back at Auntie Lisa's beach trying to surf on some body boards. For a kid who turns two Saturday he sure has no fear! Happy 4th to all. Have a safe and great holiday.
