Blogging slump!!?? I guess that is what you could call it. Whatever you want to call it, I am going to really try to get back into the swing of things. Summer 2009, was......hmmm I'm not exactly sure the best way to "word" this summer. Don't get me wrong we had some great times, the best part of summer 2009 was Dylon was able to come home for 10 glorious days!!! It was so great to have him home, Adam is still talking about it, and almost everyday asks about Dylon coming home for Christmas!!!! Mr. fun has been working lots of hours, and in this economy we are very thankful for that!! Many at Mr. fun's job got laid off so, like I said we are thankful!! Sadly we had to attend 2 very hard funerals this summer. Both affected me very strongly. The first was Dylon's friend who was killed in Afghanistan, and then a very special friend of mine died unexpectedly. Brianna was just 17 years old, I've known her since she was 5. Brianna had down syndrome, in 2006 she was diagnosed with leukemia she had actually been in remission for about a year and was doing great when she got the flu and I guess her tired body finally just couldn't take anymore. Her entire family is very special to our family, they are some of the nicest people you would ever meet. My heart is still hurting for their and this world's great loss. These are just a few of the reason's for my absense.
We started school Sept. 8 with the rest of our neighborhood. Yes, we are still homeschooling. Adam is now in 4th grade. Above picture is the first day of school pic. . We joined a homeschool co-op, it meets 2 days out of the month. We have science, gym, and art there and though we have only gone once I think it is going to be a really good fit!! I hope I'm right!
We also have a new member to our family, everyone please meet "Louie". He is a 5 year old shitzu. This new additon now makes us a 3 pet family!!! 2 dogs, and 1 cat, I have always had a 2 pet maxmium but I guess rules are made to be broken!! Louie is a total sweetheart and even Mr. fun who is not a "little dog" kinda guy thinks he is pretty cool!!
Yesterday we found out Adam has pneumonia, I guess it is really going around here!!! I know this has happened because with all the talk about the flu, I felt an obviously false sense of security with the thought that because we were homeschooling Adam would be "safer", guess germs are everywhere and if your going to get it your going to get it. I am happy to say Adam is doing really good, and I think we caught it before he got too sick!! He did have a fever of 102 Monday and Tues. and Wed. it was 101, today it has been 99.5 so, I am hoping the worst is over!!
