He gives strength to the weary and increases the power of the weak. Even youths grow tired and weary, and young men stumble and fall; but those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint.
- Isaiah 40:29-31

IE. Yes, he played in his soccer game and of all the positions he could have chosen, he chose to be the goalie. We are just so proud of Noah. Last week he tried really hard in school. He went out on the field to play soccer like a champ. Jeff and I have seen a big improvement and all because we spent a little one-on-one time with him. It's amazing how much cancer touches each member of the family. I am just so glad that we are able to help Noah deal with having to share so much of Jeff and I with Joshua. I mean, at 20 months old, he not only gained one sibling and had to share the spotlight with them, he gained two. Then, at 30 months old he missed us for a month while we stayed with Joshua in the hospital. He has had to be the big brother so many times and Jeff and I sometimes forget that he is only 4. But, we're trying and making improvements. We took Noah to the Renaissance Festival on Sunday and had a blast. He got to have some alone time with mommy and daddy and enjoyed every minute. We did too.

Now, we have to help him get past this week as we are scheduled to take Joshua back into the hospital on Wed. for chemo for 4 days. Hopefully with Jeff or I coming home every night, we can keep the other two in somewhat of a normal routine.

Once again Aunt Paula is so proud of Noah. Keep up the good work little guy. I can't believe my godson is going to turn 5 next month. Where does time go??? Good luck this week in the hospital and if you need anything you know how to find me!
