Blake is down to his last four sleeps at home. He asked for fried rice tonight. Garrett is cooking. #imindenial

I'm quilting on some purple hearts today and thinking of a woman named Heather Heyer. 💜💜💜#lovetrumpshate

It's not easy finding things to make for boys! But I'm pleased with my @patternsbyannie first aid kit I made for Blake. It's the small size of the #justincasepattern in @modafabrics fabric by @janeteclare. #showmethemoda #sewallthethings #boyslikehandmadetoo

Dungeons and Dragons figures live in my china cabinet. That's normal, right? What's in yours? #imadruid

It was a big day here for this guy! Blake went to his last day of school. He's now a freshman in college! Wow! Go Wolverines!

This guy had his sutures removed today and they said his incision looks great! We can try taking the cone off but when I did this morning, he was licking his scar, so back on it went. #wft

I received the best possible news from the vet this morning! All three mast cell tumors were successfully removed with clean margins. They were all mast cell tumors but they were all low grade. Now we just need to get him healed up and watch for any new ones popping up. Porthos has been a trooper through all of this! #wft #coneofshame

Blake's orchestra is playing in a concert for Memorial Day at the VA medical center. My Dad is here chatting with all his fellow Marines!

On a more somber note, my sweet boy has to have surgery tomorrow. He has a type of skin cancer called a mast cell tumor. I will know more after the pathology report comes back. Please keep Porthos in your thoughts tomorrow!

Blake with some of his friends and his academic team advisor, Mr Jensen. Mr Jensen is also his IB coordinator. Blake and his friend Greg (both on the "outside" in the picture) are going to Michigan. Go Wolverines! His friend Zach is going to Wharton.

It's awards season! Blake was recognized as the outstanding senior on the Academic Team! Woohoo! (For my Texas peeps, it's the equivalent of Whiz Quiz. ) #northport

After they played, the director recognized the seniors by name and by giving their plans for college, including their major. Blake's peers will be going to MIT, Johns Hopkins, Michigan, SUNY Binghamton among other schools.

Blake's last orchestra concert. Ever. I'm glad Garrett is here with me because Alan is in Israel. I will really miss coming to these.
