My smart little girl

My daughter is so smart! I don't know how many times I can say it but she always finds new ways to show it. It's hard not to brag especially since my daughter is legally blind, has mild to moderate hearing loss and her body is the size of a 1 year old among many other issues that she has! Jayden is enrolled in the K12 program through Georgia Cyber Academy. Since we have all the materials for the upcoming school year we started some of it so he wouldn't be behind when we take off a few weeks in September for vacation. Plus I like the idea of year round school. Julianna wants to do everything that her brother does. Today she was practicing writing her name! She wrote every letter on her own except for the U. I held her hand with the U, she tried multiple times on her own but it was to difficult for her. Thanks for listening to me brag! :) Feel free to leave comments anytime.

Chick-fil-a cow day and Noah's Ark Rehab 7/9/10

We started the day at Chick-fil-a for dress like a cow day and got free food!
Then we headed down to Locust Grove to visit Noah's Ark a rehabilitation center for animals and people with Jayden's school (GCA). They had a great selection of animals to see and the kids had a blast. The girl next to Jayden is Julianna's friend Sydney.

Swimming at the pool 7/5/10

Jayden is doing so great in pool! Just a few weeks ago he didn't even want to get in the deep side and now we can't keep him on the low end of the pool! We've been swimming about 4 times a week this summer and plan to do so till they close it up.

Happy 4th of July Weekend!

What a busy weekend! Saturday we started the morning off at Marietta Square for the parade which was not very impressive. Most of what we saw was political campaigning, miss GA/Kennesaw/Marietta and govt vehicles. Then we walked through the festival after the kids were bored by the parade. Jayden got a cool Gecko mask on a stick. Then we headed over to Stevie B's for lunch so we could check out their new soda machine with over 100 choices! We ended Saturday in Woodstock for fireworks. Today we started the morning with the kids riding their decorated bikes from the elementary school to the club house followed by a community
lunch, games and swimming! We ended Sunday with an amazing display of fireworks provided by our home owners association. We sat right under the fireworks that seemed to be better than the Woodstock fireworks and it took us less than 5 minutes to get home! The kids did great with such a busy weekend. Jayden surprised me today by jumping into the 3 1/2 foot deep area of the pool and was trying his best to swim! I hope my nervous boy keeps trying to improve his swimming skills.
