This week…. Rock Bottom – Wynonna Judd
This song epitmizes where we were last weekend and where we are headed. Those of you reading this week know that we hit rock bottom – HARD…
But baby, we’re headed straight up!
We’ve continued the zero tolerance policy and it seems to be helping. We are addressing the Kindergarten anxieties and Eli is going to visit a classroom at his new school this afternoon. We have made a plan for the summer.
We have put together a summer schedule – complete with pictures. God bless the preschool teacher still inside me! It goes into place on Monday so we’ll have the entire weekend to talk about it and get the kids ready for it.
Monday starts our new babysitter for the summer. A friend of mine has a 17 year old daughter who is so very excited to take on Mondays and Tuesdays with the boys. My friend has a son with autism so her daughter is used to the sensory stuff and boys being boys. Plus she’s young and cute and my boys will eat that up! They seem to behave so well for the cute babysitters….
My MIL will return on Wednesdays and Thursdays to hang with the boys. I’m happy to report that she almost sounded disappointed that she wasn’t going to be with them daily for the summer. I’m glad she still feels that way! The other lovely thing is that Thursdays will be only for a half day thanks to my honey’s fabulous schedule!
Fridays the boys will go to summer camp where Eli goes to therapy. His therapist loves to have Keegan come every year as a peer model. Keegan just gets a kick out of the fact that he “gets” to go to therapy!
Eli will continue with t-ball on Thursdays and Saturdays for most of the summer. We are having both boys do a soccer camp later this summer and we are looking into swimming lessons. We are also planning down time at the cabin for the boys to just be boys.
I’m sending out a thank you to everyone for letting me vent this week. The past few weeks have been rough to get through. You were all so incredibly supportive. You are exactly what I hoped for when I started this blog!
I’m also sending out a big welcome to my new followers! It’s great to have you on board!
Finally I reiterate…. Baby, we’re headed straight up! Things are looking better. We are done moving sideways – it really got us nowhere. “When you get down to nothing you’ve got nothing to lose!” We were down to nothing. We rolled the dice and so far we’re beating the house.
