Back to Normal

We're finally back to our "Normal" routine around here.  Lilly took a full 2 1/2 weeks to recover from the tonsillectomy, it felt like forever, but we're already seeing improvement in her speech.  She's been eating up a storm trying to gain back all the weight she lost.  Her poor little ribs were all sticking out, but they're hidden under a little layer of fat once more!  
We started speech therapy a couple of weeks ago, it's just once a week for a half hour.  The therapist doesn't think this is enough to get Lilly back up to par, so she's transferring to a special speech therapy preschool that's twice a week for 2 1/2 hours each session.  Here comes some crazy chauffeur days for me!  Eli has school from 8-11am and Lilly will be on the opposite end of town from 9-11:30!!

Here's our favorite kitty, Goldenbell (named by Eli).  She's adorable and lives at the farm next to Eli's school.  She just loves the kids, and comes to "visit" everyday when school lets out.  I just wish we could bring her home.

We haven't been able to go to story time for awhile because the time conflicts with when I need to pick Eli up from school.  He was off for 1 1/2 weeks for "Fall Break" (crazy), and we got to go to story hour twice.  Our favorite lady, Sharron, taught both times and Lilly couldn't have been happier, but Eli wasn't thrilled about it.  I guess compared to Kindergarten, story time is a little lame.

Glad to hear things are back to normal. Soccer ended Thursday, and now we have 2 free evenings- sort of (Ryley does anyway). SO, we should try our Skype date again!!! Miss you bunches!
