Hello Again!

I've decided that I am going to start blogging again. I really enjoy reading other people's blogs so I figured I would attempt to revive mine.

There has been way too much to catch up on from 2 years ago - yikes! did I really let this go for 2 years?!?!?! So, we will just start from today..........

Today was a particularly sad day for us. We had to say goodbye to our favorite speech therapist. She has been with Jack for so long and has done so much for him, it was hard to say goodbye. This gave me a little taste of what's coming for us in April when we have to say goodbye to all of our therapists. I have dreaded that day for almost 3 years and it's going to be here before we know it.

Lately I have been feeling extra sensitive - ok, emotional when it comes to Jack and I'm not sure why. We have been seeing lots of changes - a wheelchair and big boy bed to name a few. I have been telling myself since the diagnosis that the older he got the easier things would get but that is proving to be untrue. I am finding that he older he is getting the harder things are becoming - we just haven't found our way yet. I ordered this book - A Special Gift A Devotional for Mothers of Special Needs Children - I am hoping that it helps bring a little peace to our situation.

Enough of the sad stuff. Yesterday Emi Joy had her interview for Westminster Academy. I was a nervous wreck but tried not to let her know that. She bounded in the door, walked up to the teachers, introduced herself and started working a puzzle - I was so proud! As I anxiously waited in the school's library I couldn't help but think of all the things that could come out of that mouth of hers and just prayed that she didn't disclose anything I would be mortified over. The hour came and went and there she was as happy as a clam declaring that she loved her new school and couldn't wait to come back - shew! thank goodness, everything must have gone well. They should let us know in 2 weeks - fingers crossed!!

Hopefully it won't be 2 years before I post anything again...........
