Mouse Loves Rice



Max became involved in the Music for Everyone program this year at his school in Lancaster.
They were awarded a grant that allowed 2nd and 3rd graders to have choir classes after school this spring.

Last night they were invited to record a song for the soundtrack for a documentary film. You should have heard them all singing...it was so sweet. It was the "Mouse Loves Rice" song.

Here are some photos of the kids at the Winter Visual and Performing Arts Center and the crew...Wow...!

I'm sure he'll always remember this....!

...Meanwhile, Mimi and I waited outside in the hallway and could hear their lovely voices.

She worked on her stickers for a while and then said that she is a star and started belting out her own "Frozen" inspired song and dancing with her new moves.

She made me a little nervous there as she's singing right outside the studio door. LOL

It will be cool to see the film when it comes out.

It's a New Day


We switched Endos last month and took Mimi to Dupont. I ordered for all her records and insane history of test results to be faxed over, including all growth charts and everything else we could think of before we got there. We drove for an hour through picturesque Amish farms, negotiating the roads that were ravaged by potholes from our insanely cold winter.

Mimi had a thorough consult with a wonderful Endo who was so careful and meticulous, but also very funny and sweet to her. We walked out with a script for Growth Hormone. We also got a referral to cardiology (not messing around), one for labs for 2 weeks into GH (including a Karyotype lab thrown in...not messing again X2).  It was sort of like Disney World. Everything went smooth, was a successful appointment, and left me feeling shocked with relief.
