Sam was so excited for his visitors.
His favorite people - Solly, David and Yael - came to visit today!
We ate leftover donuts from Simchat Torah services
|Uncle Josh was already here with Sam!|
Sam was bummed when they left but he handled it quite well. We made a new friend today, another 6-year-old who is here for a bone marrow transplant. They played Wii and sword-fighting (nerf swords, don't forget. Two kids with low platelets....oy!) and I took some adorable pictures but I forgot to ask the other mama's permission so you'll have to use your imagination. It was lovely to see Sam playing with this other little guy.
At one point, the other kiddo had to go back to his room for a bit and a different 6-year-old took his place at the Wii game. He didn't really have the same skills and I'm not sure he totally understood what was going on. I was properly pleased to listen to Sam, who hates to lose (his words!), gently teach and explain to this other little guy how to play. In the midst of it all, I'm proud to have him act like a little mensch.
Homework and visits, mail call and a few walks rounded out the day.
We recruited Chaplain Jim to play Keep-away with us today (he's quite tall!) in the skywalk.
Just keep swimming....just keep swimming.
