Last weekend the kids, Jon and I headed “home.” Caldwell, OH – my hometown! It is always great to catch up with everyone. Although the weather and then seizures did keep us from seeing everyone we had hoped to see! Our weekend started off on Friday meeting up with another amazing little girlie with Rett [...]
Telling time is another first grade standard that we want to make sure that Brooklyn has all figured out before entering second grade. I have to be honest…I was VERY unsure of how much Brooklyn knew about the clock/time. I had not spent much time on it at home and it seemed according to her [...]

Today when Grammy was feeding Boston his cereal – which she was helping him hand over hand…we decided “why not” – lets get this self feeding started :) I had forgotten what a fun and SUPER messy process this was!! I do not know if this video adequately shows the amount of cereal that was [...]
