It’s been a busy, but good week around these parts. I hope the same is true for you. Megan had gymnastics camp all week, which she’s really enjoyed. (And, believe it or not, I enjoyed getting up at 8 AM every day to take her. I may turn over a new leaf yet.)
After she came home Monday, I asked her about what all they had done.
“We could just do whatever we wanted, really,” she replied.
“So, y’all just kind of played in the gym all day,” I asked.
“What about the art and music stuff?”
“We made giant flip-flops on paper and decorated them,” she said.
“So, basically I paid X-amount of money for you to play at the gym all week?”
Um, okay. She’s had a great time, though, and she didn’t get to go to youth camp with Brianna and Josh because she was too young this year, so I’m okay with that.
In my personal fun news, I had my second colonoscopy on Tuesday. I had this to say about that on my Facebook page Monday:
In honor of the fact that I’ll be enjoying (um, not) #ColonoscopyPrep today, I wanted to share some facts with you about colorectal cancer. This cancer is one of the most commonly diagnosed cancers in the United States. Of cancers that affect men and women, colorectal cancer is the second leading cause of cancer related deaths. (source: CDC)
However, colon cancer is one of the most easily treated cancers if detected early. I was fortunate that circumstances led to my first colonoscopy 3 years ago. If I had waited until age 50, the small polyps that were removed might have been much more advanced.
So, I promise not to get into TMI territory today, but I urge you, if you have any risk factors for colorectal cancer, get screen early!
Thankfully, my results came back negative and I don’t have to have another one for 5 years, but it’s so important not to wait!
On the school front, I’d planned to start back a week from Monday. Now, I’m thinking I may give the kids the option to wait another week. If we do that, we’ll have to come back and finish a week after taking a week off for Thanksgiving before starting our Christmas break. That might not be bad, though, since it will be a review week.
I’m actually mostly excited about starting back this year, but I’m not going to lie – another week sounds pretty good, too. When are you starting back? Or have you already?
