Top of the Mornin' to You!

Sunday was the annual St. Patrick's Day Parade in my home town of Rocky Point, NY. In the last couple of months I've been working on geneology stuff and just found out that I'm part Irish. So, this year was special, because I always looked at it as an outsider. I've even marched in the Parade. In 1st grade, 6th grade, 8th-12th grade and when I was about 22 years old. I have to find the photo, because no one believes me. But, when I was 22 I worked for my local bowling alley and I was "BIF" the bowling bug in the parade that year. I wore this big, green costume- which basically scared all the children. But, it was fun. So, the parade and I have a little bit of a history.

Of course, I took Michael when he was little and then we stopped going- probably from 3-6 years old. That was the bad period for most things. It's nice to get back to having fun! Here are some pictures of Michael at this year's event. This one Michael pulled down his hat because he couldn't stand the cold. It was about 40*. That's another thing I've noticed. He used to never care about being too hot or too cold.

Another cool thing is before we went to the parade, we attended our church in Jamesport. After the service, we had our yearly budget meeting. Michael played outside with 4 or 5 other kids the whole time. I just checked on him once in a while. In the past MIchael would run right into traffic.

As for as chelation, everything is going well. We collected urine this weekend for another challenge test. Every couple of months we test of metals in his pee. We'll have the results in a week or two.

We'll be starting baseball soon, really looking forward to it. I bought Michael and I gloves so we can practice- just waiting until it gets warmer than 40*.
