My Husband "Subvet" says that when our first son "Sonshine" was born the sun rose on our world, when our second son "Gator" was born the sun laughed and when our daughter "Sugars" was born all the flowers bloomed. That says it all.

some answers....and a game.

How are the horsey classes going??

well, the 2 times he's ridden have been great....but it's rained all week so far so it's doubtful he'll ride the REAL horse Saturday. Fortunately the wooden horse is inside! I did take a pic or two last Saturday at the farm, but they're not nearly as good as the pics I took at the CARNIVAL we went to at church Saturday afternoon!! So I'll be sharing those pics in a day or two.

i love this picture. too bad there's not three ducklings following.

I do too!! and I'd be just THRILLED if someone with the time and knowhow that I DON'T have would photo shop a third goseling behind that momma goose!

diana said...
how is the ISD going?

Well, it's interesting to say the least. The ARD (or pow-wow) went well, I guess. They did test him and he's now officially a card carrying member of the "Autism Spectrum Disorder" club. We didn't mention the aide because he seems to be doing better and the principal'd told Subvet that it wasn't possible. .... Then, yesterday we get this note from his teacher:

"He will have help each day from an aide at work time in our classroom. She will help from 8:30-10:30 to do Language Arts and Math lessons. She will also help at other times when needed."

Go figure. But at least he's getting more help!

How did the pow-wow ? And are you liking your new track?

See above for the pow-wow, but on the track at work I'm really liking it. By track we mean working the same days every week. I'm working every Sun, Mon and Tues. I like this because it means I have predictable days off and always get my 4 off in a row. The down side is that due to my flipping and flopping my days and nights I no longer have all those quiet nights of solitude to get my sewing projects done....But I've traded it for Mommie time and that's fine with me.

bellweather, this is an old southern term which implies a temperate day in which the heat is not overwhelming and thus, the belles may take a stroll!

So glad the aide is in place, Sarah. It will make a BIG difference and he will bond with her.

Glad your work schedule is more predictable. That makes life quite a bit easier.

Hoping for a nice weekend for Sonshine's animal therapy.

Por fin gane!!!

Linda said...

Heavens no the Pepcid is not next to the jalapenos! There are none of THOSE anywhere near my house!

diana said...

the first thing i thought of when i saw only two goselings was, "i wish i knew photoshop so i could tweak that picture to show three." sorry... i don't know how to do that.

glad you were able to get an aide. i'm sure that will help tremendously.

have a wonderful weekend.

I don't have PhotoShop. Sure wish I did. :-(

New words, eh? Okay.....

Trepang - French for tripping.

Usage: Francois was so embarrassed to find herself trepang right in front of the Most Holy Father.

Bechedemer - Seems like I should know this one, but I'm coming up blank. Funny it is.

Bechedemer - Southern slang for "bet your dimmer".

Usage: Clyde Earl, I bechedemer switch went out on 'em headlights, buddy row.
