As we were planning out our PURPLE BAG PROJECT, Lala's next chemo treatment was approaching. I asked Abby if she wanted to put bags together with her friends again. She said, "no I want to put bags together and take them to the place Lala gets her chemo."
Well that would be great but Lala lives about 5 hours away. Now I honestly wanted to pull Abby out of school, take the day off work, and show up Tuesday morning with purple bags, but my sensible husband helped us come up with a better plan.
We probably would have made a family trip down there the weekend before if we weren't already committed to go the following weekend. So Abby and I decided we would make the trip just the two of us. Her 18 month old little sister isn't the easy traveler that she is.
We decided to take all the supplies down with us and asked Lala to help us put the bags together. The drive was long but SO WORTH IT. Lala was very surprised and it was a very special time for us to spend with just Lala.
