Blake and Dave were so excited to finally get to attend the Priesthood Session together. Waited 12 years for that. :)
There was a fundraiser for Blake's school to buy apples. When ours came in we set up an apple pie making assembly line. We made 4 to freeze. Did some apple sauce and have enjoyed many fresh apples. Blake loves to peel apples on our peeler.
Leah made a beautiful pie.
One night before the football game, we had stopped by Toone's house for awhile. Dave had a meeting at the church so we went to hang out. Natalie did an impromptu photo shoot with Leah and Emily. She is so good at taking photos. These turned out so cute.
What cute cute girls.
Over the weekend, Dave set up a car washing station for the kids to get all our cars through. It was a little cold, but they got them all done. Cora was on the vacuum side of things, but I don't know what happened to that picture.
Wednesday night, Dave took Leah and Blake to the Imagine Dragons Concert. It was Blake's first concert and it did not disappoint. He totally loved it. They got home at 1:30 am. Leah did very well and was up on time for seminary the next morning. Or really the same morning.
Friday Leah and I took off early to get her bone scan done. I was hoping to not have to take her out of school. But then I was told it was a 4 hour appointment. Turns out it was actually 4 1/2. First they injected her with radio active fluid. Then they took a few images as they watched it flow through her blood stream. We then waited 2 hours for it to get moving everywhere in her body. A few 30 min scans. Leah said they strapped down her arms and tied her legs together. Next they push this round cold scan thing right next to her face. Once they are sure she could not move, the round scanner started moving. It went up and down her body a few times, then spun as it went up and down, then her bed moved as it spun. The first thing she said to me was, 'Mom, you would have never have been able to do that. You would have been claustrophobic and got motion sickness.' Lastly the did one final x-ray and we were able to go home.
Next week we meet with an orthopedic surgeon. I am glad they are doing both knees at the same time with all these tests. We were worried that we would get all done then start the process anew with the other one. We have talked to all her teachers about missing so much school, they all seem pretty understanding and will be helpful in keeping her up to date. Now we just wait to see what the next step is.
