Awards and Stories

Sumana received several awards at the AWANA recognition service Sunday evening. She completed her 1st book in her T&T (Truth and Training) club. I was very pleased and quite surprised that she finished it. This is her first year in the club and it's much harder than the Sparky course. She has lots of LONG Bible verses to memorize and Bible study with questions to answer, plus various projects thrown in there for good measure. She did really well; Greig and I are so happy and proud!

She also receive special recognition for helping each week with the Sparky club. She would help get things ready before the club started each Monday. She's very proud that there are ways she can help and be more grown up.

Well, today Amelia Bedelia decided to run for Mayor. When Mr. Rogers said alot of voters were still sitting on the fence and asked if Amelia Bedelia knew what that meant, she said, "Yes. Sore bottoms!" Sumana just cracked up and laughed FOREVER!! It was soooo funny!

Tomorrow we're off to get our hair cut (all of them, actually!). Then, off to the pulmonologist on Thursday. Sumana will take a 'sweat test' to rule out cystic fibrosis. It's a scary diagnosis, but a very easy test. We'll let you know how it goes! She'll also be retested for lung function. I think she'll do much better this time because she's been doing breathing exercises since her surgery.

Can you believe Sumana had surgery just 3 weeks ago today?? She is almost back to normal (physically . . . the personality only faded for a day or two!). Post-op, she could barely stand alone for 1 minute. Today, she stood for 6 whole minutes! She also was able to start stretching again at PT. She's been BEGGING for stretching for at least a week! Today, she said it felt soooo good!
