deafness, weight

Behind as usual!

Got to have a horrible case of swimmer’s ear for Colleen. She was supposed to have her party (friends’ birthday party, which we try and have in the summer as her birthday is end of May) this Saturday but it’s postponed until next Saturday. I keep telling her, cheer up, she’s having the bad luck all at once and hopefully the rest of the summer will be fantastic!

The rest of us are healthy. Thank goodness. Chris is enjoying his summer camp and swims there and at home. (We got a 2 1/2 feet pool from a friend, with a pump, that is so cool!) He doesn’t put his head in so I doubt he’ll get swimmer’s ear. Ryan goes in too but runs in and out. Ryan got his hearing aides and hates to wear them so we’re just putting them in about 10 minutes a day right now. We have to hold his hands so he doesn’t rip them out!

I am just busy doing all this and my house looks like I never do a thing. It’s disturbing, but I know it’s temporary. I get a little sad about not going to school in the fall now but know it’s for the best. I am enjoying the summer but at the same time am a bit eager for a break come September when I’ll have 3 hours a day with no kids….. ahh.

But we’re treasuring the summer.

I’ve really cut back on my computer time —

and it shows! My house is much cleaner and I think I’ve really caught up a lot on paperwork. I probably won’t be here that much now as it’s summer break and my kids will be home all the time — except for brief periods in the morning while one or the other will have preschool/special needs camp/bible school, etc. I haven’t really been reading as much either – but will come back when I have time.

Pray this summer goes well for us – it can be a challenging time as Chris is so used to going to school and doesn’t understand why he’s not going now!! And here I was all set up to blow up the little wading pools and my stupid air pump is GONE – I can’t find it. It’s too hot to walk to the playground. So he’s in the shower AGAIN.

But, all in all, things are much better than LAST summer…

I LOST 5 POUNDS!!! so far…. 50 more to go!
