I feel fall fast approaching

August is quickly coming to an end.  I know this because we are finally seeing a small break in the heat we called summer.  For us summer was a long heat spell with 2 weeks on freedom.  I am very glad it is coming to a close.  Someday I will once again relish days at the pool and fun in the sun but for us Fall is my favorite time of the year. 
      William has been home with me since February of this year.  We have gotten into the groove of daily routines and relished our time together.  I have also noticed I am completely reliant on my little mascot.  I actually feel lost when he is not with me.  William also enjoys time with Mommy but I have started to realize he misses interaction with friends.  Today we toured a local church that offers a Fun Friday program for children William's age.  He fell in love with the classroom, toys & teacher.  Starting the first Friday in September he will have a new fun place to visit from 8-12:30.  He gets to carry a lunchbox and play with other children.  He is going to love it!  Now what about me? 
       Thanks to a fabulous friend of mine I am going to embark on some soul searching time.  It is time to focus on what is truly important.  I need to put some of my time and talent together in a way that will benefit my family financially and not just emotionally.  I want to thank my friend for taking the time to guide me to the search for self.  August 30th I will start a new adventure and I know in time I am going to rediscover me, my true authentic self. 
       I want to take a minute to focus on all the new families who have joined the Lucky Cast Club.  You are not alone on this journey and truly will benefit from the love and advocacy of those who are walking with you.  The founding families are going to take some time to focus on where we are heading as a group and make plans for the fall that will carry us into the coming years.  Time to re-group my friends and allow this family to grow.
       A very dear friend of mine,  Christina Duby, just welcomed a precious baby girl to their family.  Her little guy Drue is 2 days older than William and was casted in St. Louis one week after William's first cast.  He has been blessed to be holding in brace since the end of his second cast.  Welcome Kyleigh Elizabeth Duby.  We are so excited for the Duby family!  Onwards and Upwards my friends.  Wishes for a fabulous Friday and all things fall in the months to come!
