The kids were all given matching St. Jude shirts to wear and then we were escorted to our private tent by golf carts. Inside, there were a lot of lovely Golfer's wives ready to get playing with the kids. They did face painting and once all of the kids had their faces painted, the tables turned and even a few of the golfers came by. Little did they know that eager fingers were ready with face paint for them too! It was so funny! We told them that they needed to play with it on. Can you imagine?
Can you guess what she wanted painted on her cheek?
Kayla and one of the player's wives made a very special necklace for our friend Angiel
Angiel loved it! :)
Here is something funny. You know how they always hold those "hush" signs when the guys are about to hit the ball? The signs here actually say " HUSH Y'ALL". I'm not kidding! I wished so bad that I had a camera that would zoom that far.
After this, we got to ride in the golf carts again over to the dedication of a FedEx plane which is a huge sponsoring company of St. Jude. One of the former patients, McKaylee's name was painted on the side of this pane! It was so exciting for her to see it! Her dad works at FedEx. It was very cool. What an adorable little ham she is!!!! The crowd was roaring for her. So adorable.
We arrived back at the Target House to see that we had received a JoyJar from Jessie's foundation! Kayla was SO excited.
We continued our down time playing in the library. It's starting to hit me how much we will miss our friends here.
Today, we had such a wonderful time. Just the two of us girls. It was so great to get out of the hospital and enjoy something fun before we go inpatient for our 4th round of yuck. I met a woman on the bus ride there who has been at St. Jude since 2008. You won't believe this. She has 5 kids (that's not the shocker) 3 out of her 5 kids have cancer. Two of them are twins, and the third warrior is only 10 months old. AND if that isn't just awful enough, she (the mom) had Hodgkin Lymphoma two years ago. Can you even imagine? So, I will hold that precious wonderful woman close to my heart when I am having bad days. I will remember her story and be just... well.....? Grateful.
