Date: Tuesday, August 2, 2016
Weather: Overcast and Cooler, High in the low-70’s F

The first three weeks of Camp Oma were all about heading to the beach each morning for swim lessons and then just enjoying the beach time. Last week our schedule changed when classes at the School of Science in Woods Hole began. Sam was sick the latter half of last week, so we are just now falling into our new schedule. I arrive at Heather and Jed’s at 9 each morning and they take off with Sam and head to work in Woods Hole. Sam stays with Heather and reads until his class starts at 10:15 am. In the meantime, Jonah and Ollie enjoy time just playing at home. At 11:00 we stop to eat lunch and at 11:15 we head to Woods Hole to drop Jonah off for his class and pick Sam up. Sam, Ollie, and I have been driving back to Falmouth while Jonah is in class, getting lunch for Sam and playing at our apartment. I leave Sam and Ollie playing with Granddad while I drive back to Woods Hole to pick up Sam. This keeps Ollie and Jonah from having to spend so much time in the car. But when I return with Sam and get lunch for him, we then all drive back to Heather and Jed’s so the kids can just play away the afternoon. I busy myself with laundry and house cleaning chores, and before you know it, it is after 5 pm and Heather and Jed return from week.

At the same time that the schedule changed for the boys, Mark’s schedule also changed. We no long go to Boston on Wednesdays, but this week we go on Friday for Mark’s last biopsy. Soon after that we should hear Dr. Kwak as to what her recommendation will be for treatment. Lots going on and I just can’t keep up with correspondence. If you have sent emails my way and I haven’t responded, please forgive me. I will write to you as soon as I can. Right now I’m treading water and losing ground.
