A GRAND Vacation

GRANDma and GRANDpa came to visit last week. We had so much fun. Its been over 2 1/2 years since they were here together. And almost 2 years since they were here at all. It was well needed. They got to see our new house and hang out with the kiddos. We took a mini vacation while they were here to Longbeach, WA. It a beautiful beach location, despite the 60MPH winds and rains. LOL. Even with the crappy NW weather, hanging out with my parents is always wonderful. During their stay, I also had my 30th birthday. (YIKES!) It was definitely a busy week!

My Birthday Treat

We braved the pool, in the rain and wind
Thank God it was heated!

Long Time, No Post

Well, its been quite a while since I last blogged. I won't begin to fill you in on the last few months. Life has been a bit crazy. We've had some fun, and we've had some stress.

But I'll start with my most recent of posts.
Lucas finally got his AFO's. They are Ankle Foot Orthodics. They are pretty neat. He had his foot casted and the AFO's were made just for his skinny little foot. We've only used them once during therapy last week, but they seem pretty cool. We used them a tiny bit here at home, but we're still learning.
I really hope that these can help stabilize him so that he can stand and soon walk. He's a pretty fast little bugger. He can crawl like the wind. But he needs to be able to walk, so that is our goal! He's been using a walker during physical therapy too, and that has been neat too.

Joshua has been doing great. He is becoming a smart, polite little man. Most of the time anyway. He is finishing up preschool this week. We are waiting to hear about getting him into a 3 day a week K-2 program at a public school. I really, really hope we hear good news soon. This would be so great for him.....and for me!
