Parent teacher conferences for Bryleigh and Bradley
Med check up for Layna
Lots of shopping for my redecorating projects
Park day with our homeschool friends
and a "staycation" with hubby or Valentines day :)
Tuesday brought both conferences for the 2 that are not homeschooled. Bry's was 1st. She is doing so well. I am so proud of how far she has become in the 3 1/2 years we have had her. She started as a scared, stuttering kindergardener struggling to read. Now in 3rd grade she is reading on level, class student council rep, ran on the track team, and is just a joy to be around.
Then was Bradleys. He has also come along way. Although we still have severe academic struggles due to his brain damage we think. Since his last med change his behavior has improved enough that he can go into the regular kindy class for about an hour a day! He still has some behavior stuff going on, but we are seeing improvement YAY! Today at church they were suppose to being in a family picture and a story about how they got their name. I explained to the teacher that 1. I have no idea how he got his name, 2. I would have never picked that, and 3. He will have a different name once his adoption is final LOL. She was very understanding :) I hate when things like that come up. I don't like having situations when my babies feelings could be hurt. And honestly I dont think he has any idea I am not his birth Mom. I was going through pictures one day of different people asking him who they were. I had snuck a pic of bio mom in there. when I got to her he said " I dont know who that is" Which is bittersweet for me honestly. Sad that a child doesnt know their own birth mother, yet thankul it didnt bring up any bad "stuff".
Layna had a med check Friday. Levels are therapeutic and she is doing AWESOME. We still have "moments" but they last maybe 5 minutes instead of 5 hours! She is doing great at home with her schoolwork, and is finally getting to enjoy being a little girl!
Lots of shopping going on around here with our tax return! Adam got a new car. A BMW like he wanted:) It is beautiful, and so nice to be back to 2 cars! I have been busy redoing some decorating. New bathroom stuff, and I re did both girls rooms :) They looks adorable and I will post pics as soon as they are 100% done. We also got a computer for each kid now (well except Bradley) and got flat screen TV's and Wii's for each of the girls rooms. The boys also got a new flat screen. They are so excited!
Every Friday we meet at the park to play with our homeschool friends. This week we had new friends come and the kids had a blast. I am so thankful to have positive people in mine and my children's life!
This week has the bar set kind of high now LOL. Not really though. I have finally found so much joy in just taking care of my family and home, and finding all the joy I can in this journey :)
