Sidney’s Social Cave

Sidney’s Make-A-Wish request was a room to hang out with family and friends and chat, because chatting is Sidney’s favorite thing in the world.  At Ronald McDonald House, he discovered that pool was a fun game to play while chatting.   So he specifically requested a pool table, seating and a jukebox.  He got a few extras thrown in that he was not expecting.

His room is almost done.  We are waiting on some more seating and I plan to add a comfy rug to the cold floor and nice shelves to hold his science-y things.  But we are already enjoying his room.

I spend most of my time trying to keep my toes out from under a pair of big, heavy work boots.

Sidney’s Homecoming

From Home with Love …

We are home.

All of us.  Together.  Home on our hill.

Sidney and I crept up the driveway on a Saturday evening, two weeks ago.  No one knew we were coming home early.  They were all busy preparing for Rachel’s 13th birthday party, which was the same day.

The evening was full of surprises.  The family got a son and brother home.   The coming-home son got his own surprise — an almost finished room in the basement.  One by one, as aunts and grandmas arrived, each walked into the living room, not expecting to see the one they were missing.

It was a good evening.
