|How sweet is this? Ty has friends and loves most of his teachers. The adjustment to a new school has been fairly smooth. We have his 504 meeting this coming week to iron out the rough portions. The decision to move him was a good one.|
We had a timeline to have Greg employed by the end of February and we slid into home plate Friday. Greg will be retiring his house husband title and returning to work as a safety director March 9. He absolutely messed with my routine three months ago, but as time marched on, I grew to love having a clean house and prepped meals on weeknights. He took care of whatever he could while I worked. It's worth noting that once I started working, I failed to see the dirt in my house as easily. And once Greg was home all day, he was more aware of the filth. In a nutshell, as of March 9, clean will be a relative term.
Erin had surgery last Friday and returned to work earlier than planned this Friday. She is one tough cookie. We enjoyed having her and her cat staying with us for a few days while she recovered. Ada brings a higher level of energy and entertainment to the place. Erin reports; however, she has slept quite a bit since going home. Entertaining us wore her out.
Our weekends have been deliberately more relaxed lately with large breakfasts, naps and good books. Ty has taken to fort building on our bed and turning on Avenger movies.
A friend made Kate her own loaf of banana bread and she had no intention of sharing. We discovered her in the bathroom with the entire loaf and a fork while she prepared for school. Insert eye roll here. She saw her neurologist again this week in hope of ascertaining why she cannot shake a four month headache. Everyone involved is frustrated. The doctor doubled medication doses and we gave that approach a few more days but ultimately decided to try something different. We have eliminated all medicine including Tylenol for the weekend to test my theory her headaches are rebound headaches. It breaks my heart to see her miserable but we have to try anything we can think of to help get her back to the active and healthy life she was accustomed.
|A friend's dad sent me this last week. His gesture was sweet and timely.|
Life these past few months has had it's challenges but I believe we have grown in our faith and are stronger for it. God is good, even in the long gray days of winter.
