Killing Queen songs

"We Will Rock You" from the song stylings of Nathaniel Mayhew

Buddy, you're a boy make a big noise
Playing in the street gonna be a big man some day
You got mud on your face
You big disgrace
Kicking your CAT all over the place

Kicking your CAT….because apparently the dog was too big to kick all over the place….I can only hope that animal control doesn't hear about his lyrical menace.

We had another incredibly busy day…I keep thinking that eventually things are going to calm down…but then I realize that by then the kids will go back to school and it all just starts over again. We're right about the 6 week mark til school starts back up, and I have yet to get the kids to the pediatrician for their checkups and it scares me a little bit to see shelves of supplies already.

Tomorrow I'm leaving the kids with Pete's mom so that I can go to a very important meeting with the crew from the Pediatric Cancer Foundation. They are organizing two very important events, Childhood Cancer Awareness Month (September) and how as cancer parents we can get involved and make a difference in raising both awareness and funds for research….and the first annual Cure Kids Cancer Challenge, a 5K and 1M course for families with a post-challenge party…this is an event that will be a tribute to the amazing families in our community who have battled pediatric cancers. I'm not entirely sure where I'm going to fall in all of this, but I'm eager to get involved and find a way to make a difference. While these are events to promote pediatric cancer awareness, I know that there is going to be a HUGE need for volunteers that will go beyond the scope of just the families, if anyone is interested in getting involved in some way, please let me know and I'll get you in touch with the right people. I know that a lot of kids in jr high and high school need volunteer hours for school and these would be fantastic ways to get those hours and to let them make a difference in huge way, plus I guarantee it will touch their hearts in a special way.

Tomorrow night a bunch of the moms from the Children's Cancer Center are going out!! We are ditching the kids and heading out for a night of dinner and bowling at Channelside. We are so in need of this and seriously excited to going!

Tonight we got to enjoy seeing Sydney Sims and her family at their fundraising event. Sydney looked tired but happy to be home and back with her friends and family after 5 weeks in NY. I saw her shortly before she left for her trip to NY for treatment and she had a full head of blond curls and tonight they were all gone, but she was still just gorgeous. They had a great crowd turnout, the food was good, the music was a lot of fun and it's always good to get to spend time with friends. The kids had a blast playing in the church playground and getting their faces painted….it was about 1000 degrees so the paint lasted all of about 15 minutes, Peyton was a tiger, Rachael was Hello Kitty, and Nathaniel had snakes on his face. The Brandon Foundation did a great job of putting on a wonderful night for this family and we pray that they raised enough money to help the Sims family pay for the newest treatment that Sydney needs.

Getting ready for her bath Peyton and I had a talk about all the people who tried to talk to her tonight.

"Those boys and girls were trying to make me smile tonight."

"Yeah, they were being really nice to you and you were being kind of mean."

"I AM mean."

"No you're not."

"I AM too!"

"You shouldn't be mean to people who are being nice to you."

"They make me stinky."

I don't know how to argue with logic like that.

f.r.o.G…fully relying on God
