In the middle of the month we took Heidi to Orlando for an evaluation for the clinical trial, but managed to fit in some fun:
For the last week of the month, we took Heidi and Cassie, who was on fall break, to Camp New Hope; it is a Christian charity camp in the mountains of North Carolina on the New River, especially maintained for children with terminal illnesses and their families. The weather was perfect, the foliage was gorgeous, and both girls had a great time. The volunteers at the camp had activities planned and had stocked the lodge with food and fire wood. We hope to go every year!
Papa and Gigi made it up for a couple of hours between activities with their new dog Bruno.
(A night out in Boone with our old friends Bo, Kirk, and Parker for dinner!)
We got home just in time to go out in the neighborhood for Halloween.
What a great time; and now we’re getting into the holiday season… whew!
