Updates

Hello! Time for an update and the recent happenings in our lives.

Parker is adjusting well to his new daycare! He is making new friends in now time, like I knew he would . He still says he doesn't like going to daycare, but I have come to the conclusion that he will say this utnil he is AT LEAST 5 and goes to kindergarten. He's just too much of an "at home" kid...just like his mama!

My new job is going great :) I am seeing patients already and the days are going by so fast! I hope to test out of the first 2 levels of certification this week...and then onto the next rounds of training. It makes a world of a difference to have a job that is rewarding, satisfying, and that I feel is deserving. Wow.

We are heading to see Graham & Kels...by the way, they have a site up now too :) I can't get the link to work, so it is: www.grahamandkellsey.blogspot.com if you want to check it out! On Thursday afternoon we are going to run some errands with Kels, and then stay the night. I witnessed Parker's first meltdown and Bodde withdrawal the other night. Sobs, literally. On the phone with both Kels & Graham...that kid has the biggest attachment to that dog. But he's not just ANY dog...he's our Bodde!!!!!

Anyways, then we are off to Wisconsin for a long weekend! We are counting the days - really, on our 5 fingers - Parker knows that on the "ring finger" day we get to go see Graham, Kellsey, & Bodde. And on the "pinky finger" day we get to see Mark, Terri & the horsies. You should HEAR the excitement in his voice!!!

We are also gearing up for the family reunion in August. Aunt Evelyn is expecting over 100+ people...should be a great time!


It's a late post - I'm off to bed. We get to sleep in tomorrow morning, so I can get away with sneaking onto the computer at night. Which, by the way is one of Parker's new favorite things to do. He absolutely *LOVES* the www.starfall.com website to work on his letters. I'm trying to find some more educational sites to incorporate into his viewing...any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

One last thing...I heard from Kenadi's mom (one of the other GAP winners) this week, and got goosebumps reading her email. Our internet is up and running (thanks to whoever in the neighborhood has an unsecured connection!). When I told Parker that I got a letter from her, he grinned from cheek to cheek...and then asked when we were going to see her :) Gotta love the curiosity of a 3 year old. There are some days when I wish he would understand the concept of time, and other days when I'm glad he can't comprehend.

Toodles.
