A little update

I took Nathan in to the Pediatrician for his well child visit a couple of weeks ago.  She was amazed at how tall he was.  He is a little over 5′ 7″ now and grew 3 inches in the last year.  He loves going to this Doctoe as she always wraps his arm up in a “cast”. He is off the charts in terms of height and weight for his age, which we all knew 😊.

The first month of school has gone amazingly well.  I thought for sure that it would be a difficult transition for him, but he completely suprised me!  He loves his new school and teachers and has started to make some new friends (although can’t ever remember their names 😊).  He is always thrilled when someone from his elementary school stops to say hi!

We have had a couple of rough days.  There is some staffing changes at school which may be playing a part in why this week has been a little more difficult, however, we are really optimistic about all that this new year brings!

Madison started High School and it has gone wonderfully as well.  She is settling into a routine and has really enjoyed it so far.  She has joined a couple of clubs and we can see her starting to really come in to her own.  It makes us so happy to see her so happy.  She deserves it so much!

On a happy note (for me), I am leaving on Sunday to go to Mexico for the week with a girlfriend!  I could not be more excited to go relax on the beach for a bit, but as always, hesitate to leave my family.  Jay does such a great job while I am gone and my Mom is going to come stay and help out too.  We all need little breaks and this one is coming at a great time.

We hope all is well with everyone and appreciate you coming along on this journey with us.

      Think about your family often and love to hear updates. Great to hear your daughter is doing so well! I’m sorry our girls didn’t get to meet, and that we didn’t get to meet you on the cruise when we met Nathan and Jay! It was a quick encounter but a memorable one and even though Nathan’s situation overall brings sadness to my heart, also joy for the little things in life that are so meaningful now that you write about! Our daughter Lizzy is also starting high school and is an avid tennis player and is still working consistently at her art work. You all are in our thoughts and prayers. Enjoy your time away, you sure deserve it Mom!! Carol Allen

      1. Thank you so much! I am sorry we didn’t get to meet either, but am touched that your encounter with Jay and Nathan left an impression!

  2. Is that peach fuzz I see above his lip? Tell him Mrs. Keime and Mrs. C miss him.

    1. Yes it is!! I will tell him hello! Hope you are well!
