Just a Glimpse

The words written have been few but not for lack of thought or full life lived. I am finding the spread between an (almost) 11 year old and a 2 year old with a very original out of the box 7 year old in the middle to be.....well, time consuming. Doing the pre-teen girl chat contrasted with hearing the same word over and over (mama,mama,mama,) is such a privilege but tiring on a good day.

There have been many changes going on with Isaac's therapy.

We are pretty sure the Eli has apraxia of speech. Which in a nut shell is a muscle/ neuro related speech delay. We have many appointments related to this going, on top of Isaac's schedule. It is a very busy time around here.

A little peek in.......

 Happy w/ himself. He loves to draw. I can get him to do almost anything if he can draw a picture of it.

 Working together side by side. A skill that doesn't come easy to some of us. And with Eli's limited words his frustration level is easy crossed.

 Our new family member, Citrus the budgie. Our friends passed this little birdie on to us after their pair laid eggs. We are all enjoying our new feathered friend. Journey especially loves her new pet. They are two peas in a pod.

A playmobile windstorm on sippy cup lids. Water play is always a hit around here.

They're all adorable. Journey has such gentle, beautiful features. Praying for therapy needs, and for you! That is quite a spread of needs!

Love you, friend. Thanks for your faithful care for your family and for all of the pressing in to God that your faithfulness requires. May He multiply grace and peace to you and yours today!

such beautiful children, Sandi. And that proud boy with his drawings! I wish I could just scoop him up and hug him! (thought he probably wouldn't like that...weird lady. *grin*)

love you dear heart. May God's peace FILL you this week.

Thanks for the prayers Christine, as always so appreciated.

Cara, thanks for the encouragement. The pressing in gets overwhleming at times but I do see grace often. Love ya friend.

Thanks Tonia. Scooping sounds good because that would mean you'd be in my house (though he would never go for it)...what a fun time that would be.
