life life and life

Hey all,


It’s been a little too long!!!  There has been lots going on.  I’m trying to prioritize, and all that good
stuff.  I have been enjoying my family’s
emails, and reading “my” blogs, but the communication efforts on my part have
been NIL, so here goes.


We have been working into a fairly good schedule
routine.  I am trying to get this basic
stuff down so that the kids are used to it and don’t question it and it will be
FAST!! J  Here is my general routine…

  • Kids
    before breakfast will be dressed, with hearing aids, beds “made” (that is
    all relative J ) bedroom floor picked
  • At
    breakfast we will have Bible stuff.
  • Keenan
    will help clear and wipe table, Thaddeus will hand-vacuum up the floor,
    Mom will do dishes.
  • Brush
  • Then
    Keenan can in whatever order he wants do: 
    piano practice, handwriting, tae kwon do (if we don’t have class
    that day) and math (which during the summer consists of anything vaguely
    mathematic… dominoes, tangrams, money play, clocks etc… or a real
    ‘workbook’ – whatever he wants)
  • Memory
    work and review (Bible verses and poetry)


I just want him to get used the routine, doing math
etc.  Then if he likes, and does well
with it, he can even choose when he does it, etc… to some extent anyway.  We’ll see how much freedom he can handle.  


Following are some pictures of Keenan at his Tae Kwon Do
testing… YEAH!! He got his yellow belt. 
I am so proud of him.  He has come
so very far!! In balance, in focus, in perseverance… he doesn’t like it when it
is hard and he is learning great lessons about not giving up, and trying even
if its hard and hurts, and perseverance. 
It’s awesome to see.


Well, that was our week pretty much! J  We’ll get back on the band wagon here
