Longhorn Football Practice

Tonight was open practice with the Longhorns! We called Eddie, Drew's favorite player, ahead of time to let him know we were coming. We weren't 100% sure we were gonna go but Eddie insisted we come and said that he'd gotten Drew a shirt and set up a thing with Coach Brown!!!! We got there and Eddie hi-fived Drew on his way out to the field! As we watched practice, partly in the rain, Drew had a little bit of trouble focusing...he wanted to run around and play football himself instead of just watching. At the very end before the coaches released their individual players Eddie called us onto the field!!! Drew got to meet Eddie's coach, who also knows Uncle Rafe and Uncle Loudy. Eddie gave Drew a TEXAS shirt and took him over to meet Coach Brown. Better yet, because of a "thank you e-mail" my mother had sent to Coach Brown back in May and also because of Eddie setting up this meeting, we walked up and Coach Brown said, "hey, it's Drew!" Then he turned to his wife and said "he's been doing good" and looked at Andy to ask "3 years, right?" He remembered Drew's story and how Eddie had taken a picture with Drew when he was in the hospital. Coach Brown sat and talked to him for a second...we were tongue tied! We talked to Eddie a bit longer and then got to walk off the field with him! Drew is all ready to see Eddie again! Next time we told him we'd take him out to eat after the game. Here are the pictures!!!!

Another cousin!!!

She has arrived-2 weeks early! We had the opportunity to share MR's 1 month birthday and Drew's 3 year anniversary with the family as we welcomed one more to the bunch. Drew has another baby girl cousin!!!
Weighing in at the rediculous petite weight of 5 lbs and 13 ounces!!! (Even the picture is little) She's too innocent to call a B****, but I'm very familiar with calling her mother that. But I will say Miller suffered in other ways...she was in the hopsital for almost 36 hours BEFORE she even gave birth!!!

The boys and Annalise.

Our Boys!

1 month old!

The Boys at Home

The Boys are doing good! Only a couple of more weeks of summer. boo!

On the road-as always!!!

MR will be one month tomorrow and on Friday we'll honor Drew and his 3 year anniversary of his diagnosis. Technically it's 3 years-cancer free if you count it from the day his tumor was removed and not when he finished chemo 5 months after that.
