The good news is that there hasn't been and re-occurrence of any cancer. Roger and Tracey are both happy about that. Eating is good, elimination is good, and even demeanor is quite normal. I think Roger feels bad that a full yawn cannot be achieved, but overall knowing the prognosis, we have to feel happy about our current condition. We'll have to wait and see what happens next.
In other news, Melody passed her belt test. She's now a yellow stripe, one more away from orange belt. She managed to perform her pattern well and break her board on the first try (push-kick). Last week, Roger was able to accompany Melody's class on a field trip to Science World. Apparently, all 5 girls under Roger's supervision were quite good. They explored, played and even managed to learn a few things along the way.
Malcolm is progressing with baseball, but it's been tough. I guess the bottom line is that he's enjoying it, but truth be told we're not sure he's actually getting it? He's yet to overcome his fear of the ball when it comes to batting and catching. It's paralyzing for him. The fear is so great that it truly affect the way her interacts. Roger has tried his best to help him, but ultimately he'll have to do it on his own. Uncle Bill provided some hopeful words mentioning that Ty was also scared last year (his first year of minors) and perhaps Malcolm would come along next year when it came to his fear. In fact, this year Ty was even pitching and making plays at shortstop.
It looks like a busy summer coming up with lots of camping, summer camps and even a week away with friends in Kelowna. We're all looking forward to a great summer filled with sunshine and good times. Here are a few pictures from the past few weeks, including some from a day at the ballet with Ballet BC (Roger got to go to the dress rehearsal and take some pictures at the Queen Elizabeth Theatre).
