This is for the City View Ward-this sign was brought to us at UNMH and hung there, flew all the way to Boston with us and has hung over our bed ever since. I wanted a picture before we took it down. It made me happy to be reminded of all our friends back home and some of the notes would make us laugh. Thanks so much!
Before leaving Saturday morning, we waited for Emmett's mailman friend, Tony, so Emmett could 'do mail' one last time. He really goes around on the route with him (Tony even changed this part of his route so it's not too long!) and Tony lets him put the mail in the boxes. Emmett LOVES it. Especially because after he 'works,' Tony lets him honk the horn on the mail truck a few times.
Bye to Uncle Cris, our roommate
Another of Emmett's favorite visitors were in town for a game, so despite it being a last minute leave, we got to see them one last time, too!! This is my Uncle Bruce and Aunt BeeJay. They've taken awesome care of us while we've been in Boston.
We had a beautiful fall drive through the Berkshires
Spent the night in NY so we could visit with some of Micah's extended family
Made it to Michigan, to visit Micah's family for a week. Emmett LOVED feeding the animals
...and baby cousin, Emma. What a doll she is!
Visited some favorite family spots
More dear friends, the Remunds
Mrs. Buckham has been involved in the 4H and her family own most the sheep in town.
We enjoyed her coming and visiting
Emmett made a new friend, Rachel. In fact, no surprise, really, he just wanted to
chase around with the teenagers most the night
Saturday we got in the car again...did a lot of driving....
Drove by a lot of rest stops, but this one of course caught my attention...
Oh Texas, you're so vain, you probably think this post is about you.
and NEVER in my life did I think I would be SOOOOOOO excited to see this sign!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Emmett was an amazing trooper. AMAZING.. A-MA-ZING!!!! Didn't even pull out any electronics on the 2 days from Boston to Kalamazoo. From KZ to ABQ, it ended up being a much more rushed trip than we had planned, and Micah needed to get back to work on Monday, so I did pull out the iPads then more, so we could sleep and switch off driving. He complained ONE time out of all this driving that he hurt. Another blessing. If he had hated it, I wouldn't be able to bare to put him back in the carseat.
This should be its own post, but seeing as we're incredibly slow at posting these days, I'm just going to add these in here. This is Emmett's last stay at the hospital. It was the end of July, I believe.
He discovered this song right as we were discharged and
literally seconds before it was time to say bye to our nurses.
His nurse, Jen, loved doing animal sounds with him, mostly the monkey;
the taught him an awesome monkey impression
which they deserved! They've been through it all with this guy. We have loved & adored our nurses and doctors!
