end of april!

We've had a good two weeks since the last update.  Highlights include the Bandits' continuing dominance on the little league diamond!  We won our tenth-straight game Monday night.  It was our closest yet.  We outscored the RiverCats by just one run.  Isaiah collected four hits including a home run.  He was delighted.  


Today we went to the clinic for a blood check and chemo.  His counts are strong.  We're celebrating a whole year since our last hospital admission and are counting down to being done with treatment.   We've only got a short time left to request a "Make a Wish" experience.  Isaiah is trying hard to think of just the right thing.  

Isaiah is also really enjoying his drum lessons.  It's remarkable how well he's doing.  His drum teacher gave us a recording today of Isaiah drumming to the song "Little Drummer Boy."  

Our lives continue to radically affected by #3.  Whether cracking us up or waking us up, Matthias' presence is a force to be recognized.  

Thanks for checking-in with us!  More pictures soon!

We experienced a great Resurrection Celebration with our church community yesterday and then lunch, etc. with family.  We are so deeply grateful for The Resurrection of Christ and the reality of the triumph of life over death even here and now.  This is our third resurrection celebration since Isaiah's diagnosis.  We find ourselves rejoicing over and clinging to this foundational Christian declaration with greater passion every year: Jesus is risen, just as he said!


Here are some great shots of the big brother/little brother dynamic playing out before our eyes...
