November News

Well, we’ve entered into a new stage of life:

She only has the top four brackets because she has an expander. I’ll torture turn a key once a day, for the next severalĀ  months. We were first told that her front fake tooth would need to be out during this first phase, which caused a massive amount of stress to the 10 year old, so I was really pleased when she came out with the tooth in. Her speech is pretty lispy and eating has been pretty tricky, but she’ll adapt.

Ben was chosen as November’s Student of the Month. He’s one of the top students in his class and  reading at a level higher than most of his classmates.

Last month J started meeting with the speech instructor, twice a week. In the beginning of school year he was struggling pretty much in all areas, but in the last couple weeks, he has made huge improvements.

Lu has moved to a new school, because I have a new job. The business hours were cut way back at the dessert shop, but fortunately another friend told me of another opportunity! I’m now at a private Presbyterian preschool, assistant in a 4’s class. Part of my compensation is for L to attend the school as well. School hours are:  Monday through Thursday, 9am to 1pm.  L is so happy in her new class and it’s nice that I can peek in on her throughout the day!

M’s parents will be here a week from Monday. It’s been about a year and a half since the kids have seen them, so they’re looking forward to their visit! We’ll meet them in Atlanta, hopefully the weather will cooperate – it has been a very wet November and we have a full itenerery planned!

Today Clemson is playing at 3:30, they’re undefeated and we’ll be cheering them on. Hope you have a good weekend!
