Hi/Lo Thursday

This post is part of "Hi/Lo Thursday" on Riggs Family Blog (http://www.riggsfamilyblog.com/)
This is a new post I am trying.....should be fun :)
The Hi part(s) of my week was/were my girls night dinner at my aunts on Tuesday. It is nice to get together with my cousins and my Aunt is an excellent cook. She made my Grandma & Grandpa's homemade meatballs and they were delicious!
Matthew's pinewood derby race was tonight, and it was so much fun to see the excitement on his face, while he raced his own car and rooted on all of his friends. He did not "win" the race, but boy did he have a GREAT time!
Also we are headed to TN. to see our good friends Vicki & Hunter and I am very excited to see their new house and visit, it has been too long!
The Lo part(s) of my week was/were Michael throwing up at Noodles & Company last night- from a noodle that was (too spicy). At least it was not the flu, but still embarrassing and gross.
My friend Sahar, is the Mom of Alec, a boy in Matthew's class.
Her Mother was diagnosed with Anaplastic carcinoma a VERY aggressive form of thyroid cancer, six months ago. Yesterday morning a little after 6:00 am. Sahar's mom made her journey to heaven. It is so sad, she was only 62 years old, and was taken away to soon. I hope that you will say a prayer for Sahar, I know that she can really use them!
Many of you know that I lost my own mother in April at the age of 60.....sooo -Yep, definitely a Lo part of my week!
I hope everyone has a blessed weekend!
I will be back on Sunday, with pictures from our trip to Tennessee......

So sorry to hear about Sahar....just when is someone going to find a cure for Cancer? I ask myself this question at least once a week while reading stories like this!! You would think by now they would have made some progress....

Try to enjoy your trip to TN....can't wait to see the pics!!
