When we returned home from Breckenridge and our fun family trip, the heat wasn’t working in our house. It had gotten pretty cold by then, so what better to do than make s’mores in the oven?! =) Thankfully, we had the heat fixed before too long.
That week we went on a field trip with our dear friends to pick veggies at Miller Farm. It was a chilly day, but we sure had a fun time!
The boys (mostly Micah) have started sending letters and pictures with our sweet cousins in Wisconsin. Ethan is also writing letters with a friend from CC. So much fun!
Micah finished his favorite writing workbook. He has requested that I buy it all over again because he thought it was so much fun.
Ethan is our primary lawn-caretaker. We had a massive amount of mushrooms in the front yard recently, so he took care of them (along with his Daddio!).
Here are some pictures of our community day at CC. Ethan’s doing a great job in the afternoon essentials program – the one I was so nervous about earlier. =) We also took a nature walk one week and Ethan brought us a class pet. Lastly, I was so pleased to see the high schoolers playing with all of the younger classes during the lunch break recently! So much fun for everyone.
I was down for the count with a cold recently while Mike was out of town. Mamas don’t really get days off. But the boys did an awesome job doing school while I laid low on the nook.
Ethan recently decided to participate in a research study. It’s a study of the brains of young people with autism and those who don’t have it. E was pretty nervous about getting the MRI done and almost quit a couple times, but he persevered and then was really pleased he had done it. I was so proud of him! He earned himself $20 and got a picture of his brain scan.
Weekends are cherished times around here. We love biking and playing tennis and just spending time as a family.
And, last update for now, is from when the boys and I babysat Caleb recently. We sure love spending time with that sweetie and he’s starting to play alongside them.
