Lots going on!

Tomorrow we head into Chicago to see Shelby's Pulmonologist.  She's been doing o.k., but having a harder time swimming this year due to not being able to hold her breath under water as long.  I'm nervous about what her PFT's might show.

Riley "graduated" from Montessori a week ago.  The school goes through 6th grade and she just completed 5th, BUT we are moving!!!  August 1st we will move approximately 1/2 mile north of where we are into a house :-) and it puts us in the Harlem school district.  While we love Maria Montessori, we are not thrilled at all with what the district has to offer for middle and high school.  It was a tough decision, but one that had to be made and the timing is right for us.  We were going to try to live in our apartment the whole time Scott was in nursing school, but we are just too cramped...add that on to Scott working nights and sleeping during the day...not good.  We found a brand-new house (its just the foundation right now) in a nice size subdivision to rent.  If we like living there then we'll eventually buy it.  So, if anyone is available Sunday, July 31st we'll be loading up the truck then.  And, if you happen to have Monday, August 1st off, we could use some muscle that day, too.  (wink, wink)

The girls had their last 1 hr and 45 min of school today.  I got a lot of great pictures.  They both had EXCELLENT report cards so we spent the afternoon swimming at Sand Park Pool.

Last Friday we were invited as a Make-A-Wish family to the Rockford Airshow to watch the planes practice.  Very cool!  They showered the big girls (we left Avery with Grammie & Poppy) with tons of goodies!  They treated Shelby like royalty!  It was a lot of fun!

Enjoy the pics!  Hope and pray that I have good news to report tomorrow.

Some "stuff" has been going on with Shelby, but so far nothing MAJOR.  I'll update more after her Pulmonologist testing and appointment this Wednesday.
