Seems to be the theme of this summer… start off thinking a week will be semi relaxing and then… BOOK IT TO THE HILT! Monday looked nice and simple – the twins off to their yearly check up with Ken… BUT 3 hours later and they were FINALLY home, basically writing off our day school wise. Apparently our specialist had an intern who did the assessments first and THEN had a chat with our doctor who in turn ran the assessments herself. Thankfully the boys are healthy and happy and there are only a few things to work on with Zander to improve his concentration. The concern is based on the fact that he DID have an a-typical seizure back when he was just over 2 yrs old that may have set him back a bit behind Gavin. BUT both we and the doctor do not think he needs a label or anything, just work with him. I am VERY blessed, this doctor is on board with our homeschooling and willing to support our decisions. Definitely a gem!
So my day centred around the youngest two of our family. Both not in the best of moods but we managed. Lots of cartoons and car toys and snacks. I was not feeling my best so I got up the guts and tested my OWN blood sugar… by MYSELF!! 4.0 so it was not high, I am wondering if I just feel my best at the 5.0 area (normal is 4-6).
With the lack of school time our plan of the boys and Ken camping in the backyard TONIGHT has been changed to tomorrow. This is combined with the lapbook I found online so we will work on that beforehand. Thankfully this isn’t knocking anything else I need done out of the running. BUT it does mean my quiet boy free night is postponed a day.
I have been taking guesses on the date, gender and weight of Baby #5… it has been fun hearing what everyone ELSE thinks we are going to have and when. The closest to the correct answer will receive a prize (not sure what that will be yet but we are brainstorming!). So if I have not gotten your guess… well I should get it soon!! hint hint!
So life keeps on going and changing and causing scheduling headaches but I managed to check my blood sugar levels on my own so I feel accomplished!
