I am trying to get back in the swing of things, but it so hasn't happened yet eh?

Three things have happened lately.
#1. Jay got glasses!

He is super excited to be able to see better!
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
"Tutu Friday"

#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,
 then I truly do get to,
 as the song says,
 "Carry On..." 
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.


  1. I'm glad about Hank's positives and his D will work out Em.
    We've got no plans Sunday.
    I think it's great that you have a girl and she's a girls girl.
    Yuki doesn't want to be caught dead in a tutu.
    Funny aye.
    Maybe Emiko will be my girlie girl.
    Yuki's just a girl with her personalitya nd emotions LOL

  2. Miss you guys so much, your kids are growing a little too fast! Awesome update!

  3. Jay you look so handsome with glasses!! Congrats. Lays I am so happy to see you in dance class!!! Your mask is amazing!!! Henry you are amazing and we love you so much just the way you are!!!! thanks Em
