Summer in Full Swing

There is nothing better than spending the day surrounded by family and NOT feeling exhausted! Tuesday was just that kind of day. My sister, Diane, is visiting from Kansas this week, so she, my mom, my sister Karen, a few of our kids, and myself spent the day at Knoebels Amusement Resort. 


The weather was perfect, the kids were awesome, and I felt better than I have in a long time!

Stella had her first experience with real rides (other than the carousel when she was a baby) and she had a blast. She just giggled the entire time! Felicia and Madelyn went on rides that they would never have tried without their cousins’ encouragement and they were so happy they did. We can’t wait to go back!

The Blog Commenting Challenge

I’m participating in “The Blog Commenting Challenge” hosted by Jenna’s Journey. Care to  join me? Click the link!

Today, the topic is “All About Me”
If you are new to my blog, welcome! My name is Sandy. I live in a small town in Pennsylvania with my hubby of 20 years, Mike. We have six kids: Michael(19), Brandon(17), Aaron(15), Felicia(8), Madelyn(6), and Stella(2). Oh, and I can’t forget my furry baby, our Chihuahua, Lucy!

I’ve been a stay at home mom since 2007 . Prior to that I worked in a daycare/preschool which I absolutely loved. However, spending lots of time caring for other peoples children and not enjoying all the special moments with my own made my decision to leave my job an easy one. It was the BEST thing I could have done! I love being home with my kids!

In August I received some news that has changed our lives tremendously. I was diagnosed with breast cancer.  By the end of August, I began chemotherapy having my last treatment in December. It was rough, but I made it! I had surgery to remove the mass in my breast and my ovaries  in February and just finished almost six weeks of radiation a few weeks ago. I’m feeling stronger everyday and thank God for giving me the strength to get this far.

Again, welcome! I look forward to getting to know you!

My Mother's Day/ Birthday/ Anniversary Gift!

My awesome hubby bought this for me. I love him dearly! It arrived just before we took a mini vacation for the weekend, so I haven't really had a chance to learn much about it yet. I'm sure we'll become good friends very soon.  :)

20 Years

Twenty years ago today, I became Mrs. Michael Adams. Mike and I have been through many ups and downs, but thankfully, we have been through them all TOGETHER! Although we know each other very well, there are still new things that surprise me every day. His strength and encouragement through my fight with cancer is what has gotten me so far in this journey. I'm not sure I could have kept going after my first treatment without him by my side. I love him just as much today as I did the day we said "I do" and I and forever grateful to have him in my life.

A "Kicking Cancer's Butt" Update

This past Thursday was a great day! It was my very last radiation treatment! 
I happily accepted my diploma and went on my way hoping to never return again.  :)
