Back to School
Belalu's hearing test went really well. One ear was within normal range and the other was still showing signs of fluid but significantly less than six weeks ago, so he's not concerned. Her vocab continues to grow, so we feel good about that analysis.
"The Year of the House," as I've dubbed 2013, has been slow to get going since we've barely been in it lately, but the biggest thing I've done, and really I started doing it when we got back from Spain at the end of the summer, but I've continued to keep up, is working on getting rid of so much stuff. I'm sentimental, so it can be hard for me to get rid of things, but I've realized that if I don't have so many things around, it's less to clean, organize, pick up, maintain, etc. So, when I'm home with the kids and they are playing in a room, I'll tackle a space there and see what I can get rid of. It's amazing how good it feels to throw out/donate/recycle things that we don't need and aren't using.
Ok, off to bed. I've got some book reviews coming up for you and also more thoughts on "difference" and dwarfism, so stay tuned :)
