So far behind...

I feel like my blog has been severely neglected. I have SO many pictures that I haven't put on here, dating all the way back to last summer. I would like to say that I am going to be really good and get all caught up, but realistically that's not going to happen : )

Hunter had his 7th birthday on March 10th. I can NOT believe that my baby boy is 7, I mean seriously where does the time go???? I will have t o do a post all of his own very soon!!! Today was the first soccer game of the season and kicks off a VERY busy couple of months for us. This year Hunter's baseball and soccer overlap a lot, Mondays he has Boy Scouts, Wednesday he has baseball practice, Thursdays he has soccer practice and a baseball game, and Saturdays he has both soccer and baseball games. I'm tired just thinking about it all. We will also be heading in for an orthodontic consult in a little over a week, I don't think my bank account is at all ready for this, but the kid has two teeth that are coming in behind the rest because there is no room, so we'll do what we got to do!

Ella is doing great as well. We have made some changes around here lately.....I have pulled her out of private therapies until school gets out. We were both exhausted and her behavior was not so great which in turn made my patiences not existent. I really debated it, but I think this is what we need right now. She of course still gets therapy at school so I'm really not too worried about it. Ella will be starting soccer soon, she will be playing on a league for children with disabilities. I'm really looking forward to it, it will be on Wednesdays for 1 hour for 6 weeks. Her eyes seem to be doing really good. She still has some "residual crossing" when her glasses are off, although that seems to be less and less as time goes by, and we go back to the eye doctor in May to officially see how the surgery went and if her prescription changed. Currently her glasses are broken, she sent them down the slide at a friends house yesterday and one of the nose pads fell off. I of course can't get them fixed until Monday. I'm thinking summer might be rough on the glasses. I'm thinking about getting a spare pair after her appt in May but DANG they are expensive!!

Well, that's if for now.....I hope to be better about blogging : ) I will leave you with some pictures from Ella's swim party at school last week.....her teacher is so awesome and brave!!!

What a fantastic swim party!

Hope Ella Grace has a great time at soccer, kicking the round ball and being on the ground.

She is so adorable! Just commenting that I actually stopped PT and OT when Camille turned 2... (of course kept Speech)... I decided it was time to enjoy my child without the extra STUFF... we've been having a ball and she hasn't missed a beat! She walked up the stairs today (she's not even 3) holding onto the wall, and I didn't teach her. So you just enjoy your break and trust the process. Therapy, while great, is not magic.
