Recent Life

  Hubby and two middle kids have been at church camp this week. They've been having a blast! They will be home later today. My mom came & stayed with me so she could help me out with Baby Girl. We had a lot of fun catching up and enjoying each other's company. My mom is a wonderful lady, and we are very close. We always had a wonderful relationship, and now that I'm an adult, I consider her one of my best friends. So it was really like we had our own little "mini-vacation." We watched movies and TV, we talked, and we stayed up late at night. One of my precious neighbors kept Baby Girl for us one day, so my mom and I went to lunch and did some shopping. It was so much fun!

  Baby Girl is still having some difficulties (I'm thinking it's related to both adoption issues and her special needs), and we have an appointment with the neurologist tomorrow. We will get results from her tests and labwork. While I'm eager to have a diagnosis, I'm also anxious about what it may be. I am just going to trust God with it, though, and remember that it doesn't change who Baby Girl is. She is a blessing and a precious gift. We are so thankful that God has placed her in our family.

  We are looking forward to wrapping up Sonlight's American History (Core D+E) program in the next couple of weeks, and then we are taking a little break before diving into our next school year. I hope to get our house and our school things organized while we're on our break. I also hope to just find a little time to relax, too, but I won't hold my breath on that!

I'm glad you have such a wonderful, supportive Mama. Never take that for granted.
