Today Julianne completed 7th grade! I can hardly believe it! She still loves Math and Writing and always blows me away with her creativity! Last week she taught me how to subtract a negative from a positive and the "why" of how that works. Good thing I'm not her Math teacher! Julianne blew her testing out of the water and finished out the year strong! Now all that’s left of this school year is a piano recital and that’ll do it for the 2020-2021 school year. It was an unusual, but good school year. However, like so many others, we're hopeful that 2021-2022 will be a little more "normal". 😄We remain thankful to God, as always! ❤️

This year we have seen Julianne become more responsible in caring for herself, more diligent in sticking to her commitments, and after many years of trying... she learned to ride a bike! She's even taken on being a volunteer, virtual PreK homeschool co-op teacher! It's really been a wonderful year. We are so very thankful. 💓
Oh and also, Julianne started 7th grade! Here she is with her favorite classmate / faithful companion:
Ahh...what a great day today has been. 💖 Julianne is doing wonderfully health-wise, school-wise and comedy-wise (she's a really funny girl). Thank you all who continue to pray for our girl! We are truly grateful!

We would appreciate prayers for Julianne that she would receive a good report and that she'd be patient and calm during the process. We are so thankful for her and for the continued good health God has allowed her! She is excited to do this and to get to see the city she's seen pictures of and heard so much about but doesn't remember. :)
I hope to begin updating more on this blog, rather than Facebook, because I miss it! Also, Julianne is really loving writing these days and she plans to post a few things as well! So, hopefully you'll be hearing from us a lot more often!

I also wanted to share a video of Julianne singing and playing piano at her home school co-op variety show yesterday. We are so thankful for the boldness and courage God has given her!

In addition, this year, instead of the American Heart Association (AHA) Heart Walk, we are asking Team Julianne to attend the Louisiana Pediatric Cardiology Foundation (LPCF) Heart Hero Hustle with us on Saturday, April 1st! 2nd Annual Heart Hero Hustle
The AHA is a wonderful organization and we are truly, truly grateful for all they do to keep hearts healthy! We will continue supporting them in any way we can! However, the LPCF is a local organization that provides grants to families (including ours) travelling for heart surgeries. Just take a look at the grants they provided in 2016!
The LPCF also provides free heart screenings for teen athletes. You know how you hear those stories about a healthy teenager suddenly collapsing on the soccer field and dying? Extremely sad. This is what the LPCF is trying to prevent with these screenings.
"Each athlete receives an EKG and Echocardiogram, both analyzed by a local pediatric cardiologist. To date, LPCF has screened over 4,500 student athletes from high schools in the Greater Baton Rouge area and beyond. Over 300 athletes have been identified as having a cardiac abnormality."They're doing so much good in our area that we feel Team Julianne's support would be best used by the LPCF! I would love to tell you more about the LPCF! Ask me when you see me! Also, check out the website www.lpcf.com We would LOVE for you to join with us in supporting an organization that's helping local kids, just like Julianne, survive and live full lives!
So, if you would like to join us for the LPCF Heart Hero Hustle here's what you do:
1. Read the information about the Heart Hero Hustle and decide if you want to do the 5K, the 1 mile fun run or the awareness walk or a combination of those!
2. If you're doing the 5k or 1 mile, register for either the 5K or the 1 mile fun run on the website. Both of these come with a t-shirt. If you're doing only the awareness walk it is not necessary to pre-register, however participants are encouraged to order shirts to support the LPCF! Order shirts here.
4. Pick up your race packet and/or t-shirts (you can also have your shirts shipped) or let me know and I may be able to arrange to pick yours up!
5. Personalize your t-shirt with Julianne's name on the back (you can DIY it or when ordering your shirt they can personalize it for you for an additional fee) or wear a "Team Julianne" button! Let me know if you need a button as I will need to order them ahead of time. They're 75 cents each. I need all button orders by Sunday, March 12th!
