Once again, it has been a busy week for us! I had our second ASAP Support Group Meeting this past Sat. We had a discussion topic on pain/chronic pain. We had a great turn out, 16 of us again... but 9 were new! At every meeting I have an agenda, then a sheet about our topic. I usually try to add in some great links or videos on the subject. Below you will find some that I had for my group.

Kaylie had a fall party last Friday, too. I went to help out, they were asked to dress up like scarecrows. They were all so cute, and she had a great time!
Along with our week, Ben came down with Bronchitis, and of course the rest of our family caught a bad cold from it. I had an ear infection too! Yuck! Hopefully we will all start to be on the minds soon! Ben's brother & family are coming in for Thanksgiving. We are supper excited to have them. We of course have so much to be Thankful for this year!!!
From our family to yours we wish everyone a Happy Thanksgiving!!!
