Merry Christmas and Happy New Year
Merry Christmas and Happy 2017! We started our second week of Christmas vacation. I usually love having my kids home on break(s). But geez, this ones killing me! Routines are not meant to be broken, and we're feelin' it! So lets hope this week goes better than the last; as I attempt to get some normalcy back in the house. We have homework and therapy to keep some days occupied, so that'll help!
Gracie Jo is 6 1/2, and half way through first grade. She has a great team of teachers this year. We are counting, saying our ABC's, and starting sight words. Two of her teachers pushed her over the hump last summer and got her to realize going potty in the toilet is more exciting than a diaper. Our team has also been working hard with the school's transportation company. Bus rides have become a bit unbearable for our girl. Needless to say, we're trying to figure out ways to "get along" with the driver.
Its hard to believe Gracie's last surgery was July of 2015. The stent she had placed is working thus far, and just got cleared from the cardiologist for another 6 months. Our ENT appointments prove to be difficult for her; therefore, Dr. Walner has reduced them to once a year.
Gracie still loves gymnastics, and got moved up to the beginners class along with a few other teammates. She's working hard, and doing great!
