This post is for all my fellow CF mama's out there. In my recent search for books that explain CF in kid-friendly terms I found a gem:

This is what the book's all about: Cadberry's mom is very forgetful. Every time they visit his doctor together she talks about C & F. She never remembers the other letters. When Cadberry draws a set of letters to help his mother remember them all, he discovers what C & F really mean and how those two tiny letters affect so much of his life.

Such a sweet and simple story about a little bunny with CF.

This week will be a busy one. Our kickball tournament for CF "Kickin' for a Cure" is next Saturday! We have 15 teams registered, 23 diamond level sponsors ($100 value), and TONS of great stuff to silent and live auction. If you are in driving distance of Jefferson/Fort Atkinson come join us for a fun-filled day. It's a truly inspiring day for our family.

What else have we been keeping busy with...
+Cooper is loving on his "johnny jump-up"
+Cayden took his training wheels off after I picked him up from a friends and he had been riding all day long (he told Debbie he had ridden with 2 wheels before. Not!)
+Colin's training wheels came off a day later! It's hard work keeping up with your big brother.
+Both the boys are loving school. I love eating lunch with them each day. :) Colin enjoys having his "own" classroom where Cayden does not go!
+Trinity is talking sooo much more clearer. She's growing into a beautiful young lady. We got our nails done for Ashley's wedding. My new guilty pleasure! I'm so glad I have one lady in the house to get pampered with!
+Most of all, everyone is staying healthy. I love fall, it's my FAVORITE season. But secretly despise it. The drastic change in temperature can be a bit detrimental to the kids' "baseline-no cough".

I want to end this post with a quote I read during prayer time from Blessed John Henry Cardinal Newman:

The Mission of My Life
God has created me to do Him some definite service. He has committed some work to me which He has not committed to another. I have my mission. I may never know it in this life, but I shall be told it in the next. I am a link in a chain, a bond of connection between persons. He has not created me for naught. I shall do good; I shall do His work. I shall be an angel of peace, a preacher of truth in my own place, while not intending it if I do but keep His commandments. Therefore, I will trust Him, whatever I am, I can never be thrown away. If I am in sickness, my sickness may serve Him, in perplexity, my perplexity may serve Him. If I am in sorrow, my sorrow may serve Him. He does nothing in vain. He knows what He is about. He may take away my friends. He may throw me among strangers. He may make me feel desolate, make my spirits sink, hide my future from me. Still, He knows what He is about.

Have a restful weekend!
With Love,
