6 more school days!!

The end of the school year is always bittersweet.  I look forward to not dealing with homework and the alarm clock  not going off before 7am, but I do NOT look for forward to filling the boys days with activities, while keeping up with work.  I love the sunshine, popsicles in the backyard, and swimming at the lake.

The Journey Continues...

I haven't blogged all year long. It wasn't out of a lack of desire. I wanted to, but life just got in the way. We are at the end of the school year. Andrew is about to finish third grade, Brennan is about to complete first grade, and Parker has only a few days left of his first year of preschool. This has been a full year. Matt and I still work for Sparrow Clubs and we love it! In addition, I work two nights a week at Redrock Italian Eatery as a server. Andrew has progressed in karate and now has advanced to "weapons training" (in addition to his regular classes). Brennan is playing soccer again. He loves it. I would like to enroll all three boys in swim lessons this summer. I am hoping that blogging will become a regular part of my life again. The boys grow up and change so fast that I think that this is an amazing way to document the journey...especially with Parker. I would never have believed that he would have made the progress this year that he has. He is talking so well and is making huge social gains!! I have had a few opportunities to go up to Salem to speak to legislators about Parkers story and the importance of adequately funding early intervention. This last time I went up and testified to the Dept of Education. It was a scary and humbling experience. I am always amazed that God would choose to use someone like me...just a speak to decision makers. But He does, and while it is WAY out of my comfort zone, I am trying to be obedient.
Now...lets see those cutie boys!!
