Sorry! First FL, then just life, and time on the computer to really blog has just gotten away from me.

Little One... had his Dr appt, just with his pediatrician. I was disappointed in him for the second time. He checked him over for two min, said he looked fine, and let's just watch him. I was really surprised. Shortly after this he had an "episode" where he had a blank stare and when both my mom and I called his name, there was no acknowledgement for a little while. Also, I don't remember if I mentioned this, but LO had had a visit with bio mom a while back where she freaked out saying his eyes rolled back in his head. He was starting to not feel good, but that's it, and we (the cw and I) played it off as her being overly dramatic. NOW, with everything that's happened, maybe that did happen and it was a seizure??? So, right after we returned from FL we had a follow up appt and I mentioned these things to his Dr. He said then lets go ahead and run tests. So, now he has a day full of fun on the 14th!!! Actually, it will start the eve of the 13th. I have to keep him up until 11pm that night, then wake him at 5am and keep him up until 11am when it's time for his EEG! We will check in at 10am and do the 3 labs that were ordered, then the EEG which will take until about 12:30. Then we have until 2 when he will have a CT scan.! Wow! I called the cw and asked if he or the case aide could help me out and do half the time with him and he said no problem. The 14th is the first day I can get into my classroom, and besides being extremely tired from the night before with Little One, I really need some time in the classroom. I am moving to my old building and have to set up everything, do bulletin boards, and prepare lessons. I have the 14, 15, 16, and 17. I need the time. :( Where has the summer gone???

Olivia's... subsidy came back. Wrong. It has to be changed. And of course the person who did it is the reg. supervisor and is swamped right now. Who knows when it will be completed. Then I have to sign again and send it off again and wait... again. Yuck!

Florida... went well. We had a blast at Disney World. The Contemporary Resort was great. It was sooooo close to Magic Kingdom. Most nights we watched the fireworks off the balcony. We had a few tired meltdowns, but they did great. Little One was scared of most everything and would snuggle his face right into the crook of my neck, then peek out to see what was going on. The beach was a big hit as was the pool. Little One is now walking everywhere and can stand in the middle of the floor without holding something. I bought lots of great deals on clothes for upcoming years/seasons. Who can beat the cutest rubber boots ever from Old Navy for 97 CENTS!!!! Olivia will look so cute in them this fall! :)

And beyond that... well life. Braeden had a follow up eye appt which went well. Paperwork is ready for the boys to start their new day care. LO will start the 10th, while I take Braeden and Olivia to Great America for the day, and Braeden will start the 13th. Braeden used the toilet a lot in FL, but also still says No Thank You a lot too when asked if he needs to go. We're getting somewhere, but it's taking forever, he has no real interest. We went school shopping for all of Olivia's first grade items, including gym shoes. I gave her an Ariel lunch box that I bought on clearance last year at Disney store for 2.50. She LOVES Ariel! My mom and dad got her the backpack for $5 to match and are giving her that for her bday the 16th. She doesn't know and I keep kidding her that she has no backpack and how will she go to school without one? :) I found out a lot about my class list for this year. Basically I got the shaft, but as I'm back in the bldg I want I'm not complaining. Next year, that will be a different story if it happens again.

I hope to post some pics soon. I leave today with a funny story (I thought anyway!)...

Braeden went to lay down for a nap yesterday. I had his pillowcase and a couple blankets in the wash and of course had gotten sidetracked, forgot, and they weren't dry yet. He climbed on the bed, looked at me, and said, "Mom, you need to put a pillowsheet on this!"

What you should know about HIV

-HIV can NOT be spread through casual/household contact. HIV is not spread through hugging, kissing, shaking hands, sharing toys, sneezing, coughing, sharing food, sharing drinks, bathing, swimming or any other casual way. It has been proven that HIV and AIDS can only be spread through sexual contact, birth, breastfeeding and blood to blood contact (such as sharing needles). - HIV is now considered a chronic but manageable disease. With treatment, people who are HIV+ can live indefinitely without developing AIDS and can live long and full lives. - People who are HIV+ deserve to be treated with love, respect, support and acceptance as all people do. Additional information on transmission of HIV can be found on the Center for Disease Control website: http://www.cdc.gov/hiv/resources

Little Did I Know

Little did I know that the road would be so rocky
Little did I know that the trip would take so long
Little did I know that my heart could hurt so much
Little did I know that God is never wrong

Little did I know that love could be so powerful
Little did I know that a dream so far could go
Little did I know that God would place the right ones
Little did I know that my heart, so large, could grow

Little did I know that a dream has it’s own timing
Little did I know that this day would finally come
Little did I know that four souls would be sent to guide me
Little did I know that they would choose to call me mom

But God knew all along and He had a plan to follow
God knew all along that my dream would soon come true
God knew all along that we five should be together
God knew all along that I’d share it all with you
