Happy 7th Birthday Nicholas

Nicholas will be 7 tomorrow. We get to enjoy having two 7 yr olds in the house for the next 3 weeks and then Colby is 8. We have decided to not plan a party this year for either of the boys. We have a celebration after the Tomorrow Fund Walk for them and enjoy our family time together tomorrow. The kids have been asking us for a big present this year so we decided to go ahead and get them that instead of a birthday party. Nick will have his 'traditional' breakfast in bed tomorrow morning and enjoy the day, probably bossing us around.
Last weekend we took the boys to the Hole in Wall open house for summer campers. This year Nick is old enough to go for a week. He is really excited and both boys did not want to leave the place. Everytime we have pulled up to Hole in the Wall you have a feeling of peace. Just for Greg & I to be there w/the family for a few hours, completely releived our stress and just relaxed us. We both have been busy with work, me traveling and school for Greg so to find a way (and it's free)to just be us is always great. I signed Nick up to go to camp at the beginning of August and then siblings (Colby) will go the last week in August.
Nick has been feeling great and contiues to work hard in school. We have just learned today of another family member who has been diagnosed with Cancer. For the privacy of our family and the new diagnosis, I am leaving the name out. I am asking for extra prayers in our family while they find the best treatment plan and course of action to take. We love you........
