Visit to the Aquarium

Namine was feeling much better, but the weather took a turn for the worse. So we made the most of it, and spent the day at Ripley’s Aquarium of the Smokies, in Gatlinburg.

Tournament disappointment, again

Last year was Namine’s first basketball tournament, or at least it was supposed to be. Unfortunately, she didn’t get to play. She didn’t get to play this year either, but for an entirely different reason.

Mourning Grandma

Losing a loved one is never easy. Namine has endured the loss of pets before, and that’s hard enough. But the death of a grandma is much, much harder.

Another late night

We went back to Urgent Care last night. Namine’s cough had changed, and we were concerned that something might have traveled to her lungs.
