Well I realized I have a bunch of posts that i have partially written and never posted. Oh well...maybe they will be come important again...WE have to do a May wrap-up do to my lack of blogging this month. So here goes.
the beginning of May we started out with a rainy and cold weekend...but we began working our garden this weekend. Due to starting it from scratch, we had to get compost and other things to spice up the soil. SO far so good. We also had our first night out to dinner with the kiddos. Gotta say this isn't so enjoyable. Adrian and I got to say one sentence to each other the entire time we were there. I guess you could say it was father son time and mother daughter time. However i think we decided the take-out route is the way to go. (No pictures of this we were simply too busy).
the next week we had Jackson's preschool evaluation. We met with the schools speech therapist, physical therapist, occupational therapist and his teacher. IT was great to meet the people he will be working with over the next year. By sending him to the PACE program, he will get to focus on his therapies at the same time as going to school. This way we will have a better Idea of what he will need to be successful in school. This was an agonizing decision. Tears were shed and lots of discussions were had over what we believed to be the least restrictive environment. I do know from my time working with the Goshen schools that things can be adjusted at all times. So we will keep our eyes on what is going on and keep in contact with the teacher, to see where we go as the school year progresses. It is strange to think that I will now be scheduling things around my kiddo going to school. CRAZY!! as if we weren't busy enough. ;)
Then the 21st and 22nd we participated in our communities garage sales. We had some bigger things we wanted to get rid of in order to have space to redo the kids rooms and the basement. We have a very long to do list for the summer, however we are being patient and trying to accomplish everything on a budget. Which I say it is successful....we got rid of junk and made money. that too me = success.
this brings us to today. we are finalizing our plans for Avenlea's birthday and prepping for our trip to Riley on friday. hope you all had a fun month of May.
