We had a great (albeit quick!) weekend in N.C. with Bruce's parents. It was nice to see the place they rented this month and we all enjoyed the time together. When we were leaving, David told us, "I feel very sad [about leaving his grandparents]. It's terrible!"
But we won't hold still for long -- we have three doctor's appts today and tomorrow and then the kids and I leave early Wednesday morning for Florida to spend a week with my grandparents!

Those of you who have not seen Abigail's daily struggle to gain use of her left side may think I'm daft, but just trust me when I say that the little things we all enjoy -- or maybe just take for granted -- in our 'normal' kids are absolute miracles to watch this little girl accomplish.
Abigail figured out how to do this all by herself -- I was working in the garage and garden until I heard "Look, Mama!"... note the left side involvement -- you'd hardly know that she has trouble -- wow!!!
Transcript: David yells, "On your mark, get set, go!" (but he is yelling through a tube, so it's pretty garbled!), and then Abigail (who has brownie all over her face from our picnic) calls, "Look, Mama!"

We are embarking on a journey (their education) that definitely won't be boring! Figuring out the best way to manage their different learning styles and keep them challenged will surely keep me hopping!
