wife. mom. adjunct professor. we homeschool. i'm a little bit OCD. i love math. bright colors and geometric designs make me drool. we live with a medical rarity, and Jesus saved his life. through that, Jesus is changing us. The american dream and status quo is overrated...and sometimes just plain wrong. our lives, our family, our careers, our faith are all now filtered through a new lens-- thank you Jesus. welcome to our crazy. feel free to take some of it with you, we have plenty to go around.
It's not the load that breaks you down; it's the way you carry it.

dance dance

we stay up way too late in this house. it's ridiculous.  even the kids-- i mean, bedtime is early enough for us, and we do usually get sawyer in bed or laying down by 8:30 ish, but sometimes, in the summer, I look at the clock and can't believe it's 10:30.  or 12:00. whatever.  so last night, after I got home from a wonderful time at the movies with my friend Julie, the boys were still awake, so i held ridge and had a long phone conversation with my friend all in all the night was good. after the phone call, and during it, ridge was babbling mamamamamama and i turned on the radio when i hung up the phone...and sat ridge on our bed and let him dance.  he just bounces up and down on his knees, totally in sync with the music. it's hilarious.  

he can also free-stand now.  he can't walk, but he can stand for long periods of time w/o holding on to things.

he also started  a lower dose of octreotide yesterday.  please keep praying for us!!!  this is a huge step!

so, it seems we are all doing all right for now.  hope summer is finding you well.  

sorry for the short post!!!  i intended to write a lot, but got here, got caught up on the blogs i read, and then, was sort of out of time!

You will have to video Ridge dancing and share it...I'm sure it will make us all smile :) Also I know what you mean about bedtimes...I feel like a horrible parents but the whole sun thing has me out of wack! At least we can sleep in (sometimes) as well!

Glad to hear Ridge is responding well! We will keep praying!!!
