Family time.

In celebration of Vivian's being back at home and in anticipation of Will's imminent departure for college...

"Family Night" - Robert came home early from work, Will was under orders to stay home for a few hours, and all of us ate dinner on the third floor, watched the Cowboys and played Blokus (Will whipped us!). Even Vivian made a brief appearance. Notice Will holding the door closed while Dots corrals Vivian for a group picture

Back at our favorite Friday night Mexican restaurant (sans Will who could not be convinced that eating dinner with the family two nights in a row was more fun than hanging out with his friends)

Vivian colored on the paper tablecloth and ate a good dinner. The people who own and work at the restaurant had been following Vivian's hospitalization. They were so glad to see her back

Our happy, healthy girl!

Dots and Will at church on Sunday. We took advantage of having a nurse at the house with Vivian to worship together one last time before Will leaves for TCU

I can't believe Will is going off to college very soon. Glad you were all able to spend some time together. I love Blokus (my kids play it at school all the time).

It's so wonderful to see your family sharing much happier times! Hard to believe your son is about to leave for college - I'm sure you and your husband are so proud of not only Will, but all of your children. Congrats!

It's nice to see you are at a normal pace once again. Vivian looks great! I know you will miss Will, but I know you are so proud. And what a beauty Dots has become. You are very fortunate to have such a beautiful family. Thanks for sharing your life with us. ~Debbie K.
