And a picture from Church yesterday. We were all staring into the sun, so you will see our 4 yo with her hands shading her eyes, and the 2 and 3 yo not looking at all. But we are all together in one picture!!!
Things have been a little crazy. Kids are settled in well. Some dear friends just blessed up with a full size crib for the 2 yo, and now he cant get out, which means I can now sleep with both eyes shut. I thought when I picked him up we would put him in a toddler bed. Not knowing how delayed he was, and how unsafe it would be. Well we only had a port s crib, which is can scale out of in a sec. So I am forever grateful for the new crib. He just tested at about 9 months for speech. So hopefully we will be able to get hom services.
The 5 yo is doing well in school, and was just student of the month! Her studdering is getting better, and her "volume" is leveling out. LOL
The 12 yo is now being homeschooled. We are using a online program. It is structured, and comes with a teacher that checks in so Dh and I both felt it a good choice for her. She is taking the batism discussions with the missionaries and we couldnt be more excited! She is doing very well, but we are dealing with some lying issues. Nothing major at all, but I want her to learn that people dont trust people that lie wether it be big or small.
Birth Mom hasnt called since I dont know when. Has had a lot of chances. Also has never asked our Aunt about the kids. She will go over to our Aunts house to do laundry, but doesnt use the phone my Aunt offered her to call us. So that is fine by me, but it breaks my heart to tell a 5 yo " No honey, your Mom has not called."
She has however been charged with forgery, and check fraud, and is suppose to be in jail/prison. She decided that wasnt going to work for her, and is hiding out at random drug dealers homes. Some people never learn. Her boyfrind of the last 2 years just recieved 10 years in prison. I dont know why.
As for the other 7 kids. LOL All is well.
Our 18 yo dd decided not to move to Utah. Of course this was made while her friends were on their way to get her, and her stuff was all packed. So the friends stayed for a visit for a few days, and stuff is now unpacked. And Mom is happy to still have her here :)
Our now 4 yo dd just started adderall. WOO HOO! It has helped soooo much! Anyone who has read our saga on this beautiful little blessing knows how hard it has been. So please keep her in your prayers that it continues to work.
I am doing well. Schedule is working! HIP HIP HOORAY!
Dh is up for 2 new jobs, One here, one in Utah. I want to be in Utah, but we shall wait and see what Gods plan is for us.
