Report Cards






Disney August 2013



It's too cold to post a current picture. So I am escaping back to Disney. We have had three days of snow, rain and ice. We lost power for about 55 hours. We didn't suffer. We have a generator so we had heat and hot water. We cooked on our camp stove and lived out of a cooler instead of frig.

I was at the mall and overheard a woman say that this was like living in a third world country. I was appalled that she could even compare several hours of loss of power to devastating conditions. We don't have heat or electricity in our home. The key word is home. There are many people living on the streets. They would love to sleep in a home where it is 50 degrees.

I doubt that any of us have been drinking out of a mud puddle or eating out of a dumpster. I think that people need to think before they start complaining about the inconvenience of their power outage.

Anyway...thanks for that little rant.

The Report Cards are in! And....they aren't too shabby.

Amanda's first.

Step Three

Daniel ate breakfast yesterday. He is not opposed to eating. It just takes effort on both of our part. He had a mini bagel with a sausage patty and a piece of bacon. NO egg. He asked for a second. I told him that the next time we should add egg. He said no, don't wreck it. Ha ha.

I spoke to his guidance counselor yesterday also. She is phenomenal. We talked for a while and she said that she would be in touch. And then she added if she wasn't in touch to please call her. I like that. Honesty. She has sixth, seventh and eighth grade children from A-L. That's a lot of students.

I made a call in the morning to a psychologist that the pediatrician recommended. I actually got a call back just after 4 AND he can see Daniel on Monday afternoon. CRAZY! It takes 6 weeks to get that kind of appointment. I should know from my experiences with Child Number One.

So we will just keep swimming (and praying). I know that God fully trusts me with his children. I just need to make sure that I fully trust God.
