He was mad at me when I asked him to take this pic so he wouldn't
smile, or look up,
but trust me,
they are super cute:)
#2. Lays started dance class.
She made that groundhog hat at school,
colored it pink with a crayon,
and decided that she simply must wear it to dance class!
This last one is actually what she wore to school.
Lays has decided that FRIDAY'S are
#3. Hank went to the "Doctors"
As in all of them at once!
Which is actually called the Myelo Clinic.
If I was to give him a report card it would go something like this-
Neurology Function and Progress- A-
Orthopedic Function and Progress- A+
Speech Therapy and Progress- B-
Physical Therapy and Progress- A
Occupational Therapy and Progress- A
Urological and Bowel Function and Progress-D-
So if you look at it all together then he is doing GREAT!
In my old age, (ha ha, just had my Birthday on the 19th, and am already ready to make jokes. Healthy eh?)
I have learned, I shouldn't immediately try to- "Carry on, carry on, carry on,"
because grieving is necessary!
Some smart person said this a long time ago, but it took me a while to figure it out on my own.
So, to sum up-
When I allow myself to FEEL my FEELINGS,
and WORK THROUGH THEM,
then I truly do get to,
as the song says, "Carry On..." ...eventually.
Hank's urological news is hard to hear, but it is not as hard as it was two weeks ago.
So we'll carry on, and won't let this "not as good stuff," stop us from looking on the bright side.
Man I love that kid.
p.s. Next post is going to be about you Logan:) Promise.
Sorry it's been SO long since I've posted. I have three perfectly good excuses for ya-
#1. My computer broke!
#2. Tom got a new job so we moved right back to Idaho!!
#3. I feel like I can't post new stuff till I get caught up on the mountain of old stuff, so I haven't done anything!!!
On that note, I have decided to post the old stuff in the right-ish order, but I'm not writing anything on those posts... yet. That way I can at least sort of satisfy my anal "everything has to be in the right order" self, without paralyzing my "I only have time to post the new craziness" self.
Glad we had this little chat. Hope you enjoy my mountain of photos:)
I'ts hard to believe we have been together for over 11 years and he still occasionally looks at me like this!
I love this!
My sister Jacklyn has this on her Blog and I stole it! I love it so much I don't even care that I'm a copy cat.
"I don't want to drive up to the pearly gates in a shiny sports car, wearing beautifully, tailored clothes, my hair expertly coiffed, and with long, perfectly manicured fingernails. I want to drive up in a station wagon that has mud on the wheels from taking kids to scout camp. I want to be there with grass stains on my shoes from mowing Sister Schenk's lawn. I want to be there with a smudge of peanut butter on my shirt from making sandwiches for a sick neighbor's children. I want to be there with a little dirt under my fingernails from helping to weed someones garden. I want to be there with children's sticky kisses on my cheeks and tears of a friend on my shoulder. I want the Lord to know I was really here and that I really lived." -Marjorie Hinckley-
