Where is Nick?

The boys have had a great school vacation week. I think this has been one of their favorite weeks in a while. Monday started off with me taking Colby & Nick tubing with the Cub Scouts, in the morning. Then I met Papa Boston and he took them to his place where they went sledding, ice skating, sledding again and jacuzzi tub in the evening. This happened all in one day. Tuesday they went to the JFK Library for a kids show and then came home. Wed. they had a sleepover at Aunti Michele's house and to the movies for a show. Thursday Nick went with Grammy for a sleepover at Aunt Amy's house. Colby has a playdate over today and they are having a blast playing Wii. Nick has a lot of energy now and does not tire easily. We expect Nick to nap everyday but he has not and just keeps going. I am still amazed when I look at him now and how much he has changed.... back to the nick we know. His face shows it all. We have definitely let our guard down quite a bit and just trying to let the boys be boys. The spring is coming and they will start up sports again and continue to keep them active.
Next week Greg & I are traveling to Vegas. I am going for work and decided to make it into an extended stay through Sunday. I am used to being away from the kids for a night at a time but not this long. It has been over 3 years since I left the kids for this period of time. I am excited to go and have some quality time with Greg but will also miss the kids. I am sure next week I will be a stress ball before leaving but hope to take advantage of some R&R while I am out there. We are so fortunate to have family here to help make this possible for Greg & I.

The Tomorrow Fund Walk is being held on April 10th at 10am. If you would like to come out and support us, you are welcome to join us. Click on the link to the right of the blog - 'tomorrow fund' logo for more information. The boys are I are putting together some donation stuff. One of my goals this year was to give back, not from me but teaching the boys different ways to give back to the people who need it. Hopefully this is just the start of it.

We are all together tonight and hanging out as a family. Nicholas and Colby would like to say a few words... so here we go:

Nick: I am feeling all better now. Me and my family are doing ok. I hope there will be peace. I pray for my friends. I have made a lot of friends. I am much more stronger and try to raise money to cure kids.

Colby: I am glad that my brother is okay. I was really worried when my brother was sick. I really wish to sign up for football and baseball this year. I wish I could do something for everyone out there and at school we are trying to raise money to help cure the kids today.

We will give more details on the next update. School vacation and lots of activity for the kids this week. Karen
