Day 19-1st day of School
Josh and Ella had their 1st day of school today. Josh at his new school, and Ella at home. I never thought I'd be a home schooling parent- just didn't think I would have the patience for it, but Ella really got into it today. I'm not really worried that she will fall "behind", but I don't want her days to consist of just feeling sick and watching TV. This way we have a schedule and a plan for when she is feeling well.
She had a good day today. She went with us to take Josh to his 1st day of school, and she got to see her friend Ali for a few minutes this afternoon. She lit up and really enjoyed seeing her friend. Pickles (her babysitter Sara) came over and we took Ella for a walk. She had a pretty good energy level today and took a good nap.
In our family- It's kinda a sign of friendship if you have a nickname. Almost everyone we know has one- including all of us. Even our cat and dog have one. Ella is Tinker or Ella Bella, or Meow Meow if she is playing with Rachel.
Looking forward to tomorrow being another good day, and back to chemo on Thursday.
