Things don't go wrong and break your heart so you can become bitter and give up. They happen to break you down and build you up so you can be all that you were intended to be.” ~Samuel Johnson

Moving on to 4T !!!

It is amazing how different Tyson is!  If you tried to interact with him in the last year 1/2 you were most likely ignored.  Now that he feels a lot better he is talkative and happy and wants to be involved in everything.  There is a considerable difference in his appetite and demeanor now that he is off the voriconazole (antifungal), he will even talk to other adults and is constantly out playing with somebody.
 I had lots of help painting the new boys room for Ryan and Tyson

 Our local town has a parade and festival every August...yep, I let him get candy off the road. 
 Building a truck at the Home Depot booth at the festival
 Daddy's home from his two week Annual Training so we went to a Army family picnic to celebrate...the kids found a cool tree that was low enough to climb on...tanks are fun to climb on too
I think he has even gained a little weight since he's been off the antifungal, he eats whole peanut butter sandwiches!  He's been a real fussy eater since he was diagnosed, mostly wanting bland food and never eating a whole bunch in one sitting (except when he's on steroids of course) just little nibbles here and there.  And look!!!  His 3T pants are finally too short!!  Yahooo!
I gathered them all up and sold them (along with a ton of other stuff) in our benefit yard sale for kids with cancer.  It was A LOT of work!  Sorting through all of the stuff and getting it organized took the entire day Thursday and then some, but we had a great turnout on Friday and even a few more customers on Saturday.  It was a great success and we will do another one in September so if you were planning to donate something and didn't get a chance to bring it over you can still bring it to me.  THANK YOU to everyone who helped, donated, and bought stuff!!  Our next door neighbor even did her own yardsale and donated what she made to us.  We donated some of our proceeds to our cancer buddy Boo, and the rest of what we made will go to our CureSearch Walk.  We are so excited to be a part of helping move research forward and we thank you so much for being a part of it too!!
