We are back !

We apologize for the lack of blogging and promise to provide more frequent updates.

Lets start with Harrison. Harrison recently got his drivers license. Woo-Hoo !
This weekend was Prom. 22 more days of school and he will be a Senior ! We started talking about colleges which seems ridiculous.

Madeline was inducted into the National Junior Honor Society. She rocked at Forensics this year , taking 1-2-3rd all season and then took 4th at the state competition.

Hayden recently attended 6th grade camp. He absolutely LOVED it. Hayden was lucky that his camp counselor ended up being his cousin Brandon. It was 3 days of geography, science, running around in the rain and good food. (Those are Hayden's take-aways.)

Elijah continues to do well in school. He will be having a revision surgery this summer. Which he is not looking forward to... but we are very thankful we are so close to Children's Hospital.

Keaton is sporting his second Boston Brace for his Juvenile Scoliosis. The first one lasted 18 months. He is such a trooper. He goes with the flow- a couple kids made fun of him when he got his new brace- he promptly told the teacher who dealt with the situation. Hoping for another 18months of wear and no curve progression. We attended CHOW Scoliosis support group. It was really interesting. Keaton was the youngest boy in attendance. At his last appointment we consented to allowing Children's to use his DNA for research. I am thinking that 3/4 kids having scoliosis has to be rare.

Mia-Faith is doing well. She loves school. She is still a peanut. Her speech is progressing and we just renewed her IEP. She has come a long way but still has issues with word finding, sentence structure and articulation. Never got a call from a teacher until Mia hit kindergarten. She is a follower and so eager to please...
