I was young and now I am old, yet I have never seen the righteous forsaken or their children begging bread. Ps. 37:25

About hearing aids…   Leave a comment

I just recently got a second hearing aid, after having one left hearing aid since 2006 and wearing it haphazardly.  My hearing loss is less severe – mostly in my left ear, but some in my right.  Ryan’s is second least severe, with his having more loss in each ear than I.  He has refused […]

Seems fitting to attend a great barbecue the week before school!   Leave a comment

Sometimes it’s challenging to get through the summer easily trying to keep two rambunctious boys happy and safe in the heat.  But all in all I think we all accomplished this this summer.  We have worked as a team – Chris stays at his paternal grandparents’ still (while we await, seek, and research the appropriate […]
