David & The K-Kids

Emotional! Emotional is the best way I have to explain how I felt at David's Kindergarten performance (The K-Kids). It's been a long road. Watching him sing, recite poems, put on sunglasses and dance (we have to work on his hip movement & rhythm) helped me realize my dreams come true. He is interacting with a standard Kindergarten class. He was even a minnow in a little skit (ask him about it sometime).

The bad news. He has a long way to go. He is clearly "a little off" when it comes to social interaction. So we rejoice in the good (lots of noise, sounds, people and David survived). We are cautiously optimistic as we battle to improve the bad.

Shout out to Nana who attended the performance. We have video of the event we plan to watch with some popcorn!

Happy Birthday to my Girl

Today is Jaclyn's 7th Birthday party (May 18 is her official Birthday). It is a bit surreal how she has grown up before my eyes. The last couple of days have been stressful to say the least - no power since Wednesday, 1 night in a hotel room. This equals lots of fun for the kids BUT lots of stress for the parents. Well okay, a little fun for Dad.

Today is a bowling party with only girls allowed (except her Daddy). The boys, not invited. I am sure David and JP will have their revenge one day.

Happy Birthday Jackie O!
