The 3 layouts above are from a kit that a friend of mine put together. Let's all give it up for Carrie!! Carrie teaches kids classes at the LSS that I use to manage. I was ordering the kits for Maddie, but decided to use them myself. I just LOVE her stuff!!!!
Chemoangel.com - this is a site where people who are going through any kind of chemo can join and they will be assigned an angel. There are several types of angels - I am a card angel. Once a week I send a card to my patient. Currently I have 2 patients. One is a women who has breast cancer (the above cards were made for her) and a 4 year old boy with luekemia. I encourage all of you to check out this site and become an angel. One card a week - that's it.

During Saturdays game Maddie jammed her thumb. Sunday we taped it up and off she went. Today off to the Emergency Clinic. Thumb not jammed - but fractured. Oops. We were sent home with a temporary cast, a note for 2 weeks out of PE, and instructions to ice, elevate, motrin and rest. We did as we were told, right after we went to Judson University in Elgin where Maddie had tryouts for a travel Basketball team. It is a 5th and 6th grade team, but Maddie decided to try anyways (can't beat the experience). Well, she gave it everything she had with the one hand that she had. The coach told us he would let us know the results on Wednesday. After tryouts I was asked by the coach to hand behind. He asked me to do everything possible to help Maddie's thumb heal, because he was taking her on the team!!! I am so excited for her! She has a talent in this sport that is so foreign to me. I love to watch her play. She amazes me. This is a great opportunity for her. Congratulations to my little girl!!
