Normal update now! No more grumpy mommy. We had lukie bear Home from school today with a nose infection. He gets these a lot and they are starting to turn into herpes. We are tracking them so that we can take him foot the university doctor to see if he has an auto immune disorder since he gets them so often. This is his third infection in four months. Does not look pretty right now but we love him anyway!! He received an anabiotic and antiviral med so hopefully he will be back to school on Monday. Now let the disinfection begin.

On trip news we got some very exciting news for Make-A-Wish this week. Luke's wish was adopted by a local foundation the Maxwell Meiborg fund. Every year the family hosts a golf tournament and the funds raised from the golf tournament fund the wish of the chosen Make-A-Wish child. We are very honored that Luke was chosen to be the face of the Maxwell Meiborg tournament this year. It was very exciting for our family that we were one that was able to be adopted. If you're interested in learning more about the foundation please visit the following website www.maxwellmeiborgfund.com. The foundations story is truly inspiring.

This is homecoming week at our high school so we've been very busy this week with extra activities. Last night are kids got to ride in the floats in the homecoming parade. Rebekah was a cheerleader on the volleyball float. Noah was a football player on his fourth-grade tackle football float, Isaac didn't get to participate on the homecoming activities because he had swimming practice, I stayed home with Luke because he was contagious.

We're hoping that our trip get straightened out soon because we are really counting down the days to November I hope you all have a safe and happy weekend

We went to our MAW sponser golf tournament on Friday. We had so much fun. We met over a hundred Fifty golfers. We received two wonderful gift baskets full of things for the kids and full of gift cards for our trip. There was a halloween themed basket also with a warm blanket, plates, bowls and napkins. even bag of candy.The foundation that paired up with us, is just wonderful. There are no words to describe them, luke was treated like royalty! Someone took him their golf cart to bomb around on. Luke did a great job being the center of attention, waved to his fans, and payed on his ipad. It was Such an amazing experience to be part of. Thank you Maxwell Meiborg Foundation Family!
