Avastin

Good morning.  It's already feeling like it's going to be another HOT day in the city.  The boys have a soccer tournament which we're all looking forward to.  And the best part - is they play at the same location!  How cool is that?!  We don't need to run around town to two different fields!  Very fortunate.

A friend from work (Thanks Linda) forwarded me this MSNBC article regarding Avastin.  I was so close to having this treatment as well last summer.  I know this drug has been beneficial for other types of cancers but from what I've read, it didn't improve your chances of survivor for breast cancer patients.  Plus the side effects are wicked.

Mary and her son Erik came over last night for dinner.  We made custom pizzas on the bbq grill (great idea by the Andrews!).  Pesto pizza, Pep, Olives, pineapple. . . yummy.  We had a perfect visit.  I'm sad that my twin is moving across the country.  But I'm equally excited for her!  I mean, to have this opportunity - to live in a new city and all the exciting elements that are apart of that - she's going to be so happy.  Everyone one is going to love Boston.  I've never been and this will be a great excuse to visit.  And thank goodness for the internet.  We can stay in touch everyday!  

Well.  Gotta run.  There's some soccer balls that need to be kicked today.  :-)

Checking in

Nolan's All-Star team came in 2nd place!  That was a fun ride!  The boys should be very proud.  We Are!  SC!  We Are!  SC!  SC!  WE ARE!  Now, on to Soccer!

Tate is enjoying running with his high school cross country team.  Plus soccer is keeping the kid really busy!

We had an amazing 4th of July!  So much fun.  We joined in on a neighborhood bike parade which reminded me so much of being a kid.  We decorated our bikes, had patriotic music on full blast.  GOOD MEMORIES made that day! 



Going to see Mom and Dad this weekend along with Mary and her family and Owen and his!  YES!  Can't wait!  I wish Sarah and her family could make it out. . . 

Will post pictures from this weekend real soon.

Love,
Nancy
