Living in a house in a small town and adjusting to summer is giving our day to day activities a different rhythm. I feel like we are stilling getting into the groove here. It's a good groove though, just one with a few more tasks (mostly taking care of the yard) and a few more diversions for the boys. I am trying to relax and enjoy summer, and if my sparse blogging is any indication, I've been doing a fabulous job of it!
Peter is seeing two new therapists - a great speech therapist who has training in sensory issues and a new occupational therapist, also with lots of training in sensory issues. After only two sessions, he knows more about what is going on with this boy than his last OT ever did. We are excited for the changes and to start some new things to help Peter. He starts summer school the week after we get back from our 4th of July family visit weekend. I've been assured that it will be low key and I hope it will gently help him (and me) be ready for kindergarten in the fall.
I finally hung our laundry on our clothesline today. This feature was definitely on the pro list when we were deciding if we would take this house and it rained so much right after we got here that I hadn't been able to use it. Then when the rain finally stopped, I was too much in the habit of using the dryer and didn't make the effort to hang things on the line. Last week, I was inspired by Kirsten's post and got to it today. Now, like her, I just need something to put the clothespins in. I think maybe a clothespin apron...another project to add to the list.
And maybe we will forgive our landlord for having such repugnant taste in home interiors if he continues to bring us fresh vegetables from his garden...maybe.
