School is off to a good start for Alex and Evan. Both boys are loving it. Evan got to tag along for the first time this week and although he didn’t do very well during circle time, he had a blast playing with all of the toys and going down the slides at the playground. He is such a ham.

Speaking of School, Eric and I both begin our fall classes next Thursday. Yep, I am overwhelmed already, but I think it’s just me getting myself worked up. I have been out of school for awhile now, so going back with two classes, plus my already busy schedule with the boys is a bit daunting. I am sure once I find my groove, I will be fine.
Alex is getting his AFO’s tomorrow!! I am excited to see how they will work and how they will help him. I will post pictures when he gets them!!
So the Gait Trainer (Walker) process is even more of a mess now then it was a few weeks ago. I will admit that I am frustrated with all parties involved and after talking with Alex’s school PT today, I think I am going to back down and not stress about it. As much as I would love for Alex to have the walker, he still needs to build his core, learn how to sit on his own and maybe even crawl. Those things are much more important to me. At least he has a stander, so he is weight bearing on his legs and even though he is strapped in, he is still working his core. He needs a strong core in order to walk, so I think that is what we should be focusing on. I don’t want to get too far ahead of the game and frankly the stress is killing me right now.
The weekend here is supposed to be beautiful so we will be taking advantage of that. There is an outdoor craft and art fair nearby that I plan on going to, I am sure we will take the boys to the park and maybe even the apple orchard down the road. We’ll see. I love this time of year and there are always so many neat things to do! Plus, living in Michigan, we all know what is coming (snow and cold) so we have to enjoy these next 6-8 weeks before we are holed up for the winter!!!
