Fall Break came and went so fast!
We got lots done!
No fun trips but lots done and time
to get it done.
Chrissy worked and worked to get the manual chair back up and going.
With getting a new power chair, the seating goes back and forth between chairs, and
it takes a lot of work to make that happen. Thank you Chrissy!
Quinn and Buttercup watched! Buttercup needed some petting too, so she helps Quinn pet her!
We also got to the dentist. Always something good to get done!
Did some cooking and cleaning!
Got bike tires aired back up.
Eye doctor appointments are done for the year.
I would show pictures of flu shots too, but I was busy holding Denali down. When I say she does not do well with shots, that is an understatement! It was embarrassing!
Talking about embarrassing, we still have our foster kiddo! We have done sleep studies with him, we have taken him to doctor appointments, and had family meetings. We have loved him up and educated folks about him. I will say being a foster parent keeps you humble. You are judged for everything. At the same time, I think that is fair. You are raising another person. This person has feelings and thoughts and dreams. So do his birth parents. Case workers and lawyers, teachers, and family members all give us their thoughts and suggestions. We appreciate all of them, but wow. We are reminded what humility is. Having folks judge you and your parenting is hard. We work so hard to do a good job, and it is exhausting, so having folks enter into our homes and lives keep us vulnerable and although it is hard, I really feel we are doing our part to help out our friends, our community, and our world. I feel we are showing our kids how to be better humans. How to be humble, and how to take criticism. I feel it is hard, the appointments wear on us. The upcoming events are keeping us on our toes and wearing us out already, but we will be able to look back on this experience knowing we put everything into it, and helped a family and a wonderful child who needed some love and support! So you can't beat that!
Blessings! Be kind, we all have lots of stuff going on in our lives! All of us!
