Much is going on. Just so much to do at the end of the year. The homeschooled high schoolers are done for the year now that they took their finals earlier in the week. I'm excited to report that we are ahead of the game and have most of their schedule planned out for next year. Adam is getting ready to graduate and we bought a 4th used car for John that gets great gas mileage so Adam will have the old Nissan Max to go to and from work and college. Many dentist appointments-- half of the kids have cavitites-- half don't. Alex got new AFOs a few days ago-- he loves them!
Nolan is enrolled in mainstream transitional kindergarten and will have an Ipad with Proloquo2Go to help him communicate. Nolan has a hard time communicating because his mouth does not have the structure to produce intelligible words. My hope is that this program will finally give him a voice! He is so smart and has so much to say. I just wish the school would have agreed to let him bring it home so he could use it with us too. The Ipad and program combo is so expensive that I was hoping they would at the very least upload the program for us if we bought an Ipad-- but no.
Our little garden is growing great in some areas-- not so great in others. Still, it brings great satisfaction watching something grow after nurturing it. I wish I could say the same with my flowers. One of my sons mistook all of the new growth for weeds and pulled every single one-- and left the weeds. It might not have been such a big deal if he hadn't disobeyed me by pulling the bucket of weeds in the opposite place I had asked him to do it-- a consequence after refusing to listen to me. :( Between that and baseball, I'm almost convinced that we won't have flowers this summer.
After shedding a few tears because of the situation with my teenage son and seeing the dead flowers in the bucket, I am now thinking about other ground covers. Any suggestions?
