Orren has taken four steps in a row on his own. YEAAAAAAA! He is also totally gluten free again since we DID NOT have a food allergy AT ALL and our GI doctor is a wacko. When I am over my anger and frustration I will post more details. BUT, based on what we have learned he WILL NOT be going back and HE WILL NOT be having any more surgeries, regardless of what that woman says.
We are gearing up for school. Olivia is ready and so am I, perhaps Orren will be accommodating. She has her new folders, Binder, book covers. We just need a pencil box and writing paper
We had some serious weather today and we do have a little damage and we are braced for more to come this evening. The power and phone (only downside to the digital phone line, no power... no phone) have been out. Guess there will be no gloaming this afternoon. The children did very well. They occupied each other and that was a huge change in the way it used to be around here. Olivia would be right underneath me, clinging. SO this was wonderful to see.
We are about to take on some projects that are long over due:
Painting the Kitchen is first. I am using the same green I had in my last kitchen, I love it so!followed by the dining room in a grey blue.
A couple of the little alcoves we have, in a deep "candy apple", and the Hallways in a deeper beige than we have.
We are ripping up the carpet and putting in hardwood through the downstairs(this is still a little off, we need Orren out of this stage first)
I am looking to order our little awning for above the front door, so if anyone has a suggestion on the best company, I am open to them.
I will post pictures along of the progress! IT WILL TAKE A WHILE!
Next week is an exciting week for us, we will find out what Kayla's expected bundle of joy will be.
We will NOT be going for surgery! Huckleberry has a birthday on Sunday!
All the children in Helena had their first day of school today! I hope it was wonderful and fun. Thank you to the Helena United Methodist Church for breakfast for everyone this morning! Sausage and biscuit with OJ to wash it down! Yummy! What a great thing to do for our community.
