Just a Lot of Life

May 29, 2009

I realized it’s been a while since I posted (sorry, Kate!) but there really hasn’t been anything too exciting to blog about.  Life is moving fast, almost too fast for us these days!

Here are just some updates, probably pretty boring to most of you!

  • Gavin has one official day of school left.  I’m really sad about this because we LOVE his teachers and he will not be returning there next year (he’s attending a Universal Preschool closer to our house).  Still trying to figure out how and WHEN to explain this change to him.
  • We leave in 15 days for the Autism Institute!  I can hardly believe that.  I’ve been making lists of lists.  It’s hard enough packing for myself but then packing for two little guys to stay at Grandma’s.  I don’t want to overdo it, but I don’t want to forget anything either.  This is also our first experience on the East Coast and I’m super excited!  (Not so excited to fly while 8 1/2 months pregnant!)
  • Speaking of, baby is now head down (woo hoo) and we’ve only got 8-9 weeks to go.  My babies come early, so hopefully this one follows in his brother’s footsteps!
  • We’re in the middle of wedding and birthday season again.  Lots of parties and sugary cake- oh boy!
  • We’ve been working like crazy on our house (not that baby cares what our house looks like when he arrives) but my nesting urges are forcing me to put Josh to work 😉  and for me to organize and reorganize everything.
  • I’ve been trying to find someone who gives private swimming lessons but isn’t too expensive.  I need someone who is willing to take a child as young as Liam (2) and someone who (possibly) has experience with autistic kids.  Gavin isn’t afraid of water, but he does have a sensory issue when it comes to water on his head or face.  Kind of a big deal.  If anyone knows of anyone…………

AND, WALK NOW FOR AUTISM is coming up soon.  Saturday, June 13th starting at 10am at Valley Stadium.  Unfortunately that’s the day we leave for MA, but I’m hoping there’s a fantastic turnout and a lot of money can be raised.  For more information you can visit www.walknowforautism.org/iowa.  We’ll most definitely be doing this next year!

    Finally an update! I love hearing about your sweet boys! The only places I know of for private lessons in Des Moines is if Tom Reed still does them in his backyard (although his kids are all grown up now so I’m not sure who would be teaching for him, but it used to be Roosevelt Swim Team people), or the YMCA – I used to teach them at Walnut Creek, but I think a girl I went to school with teaches them at the Downtown Y – I’ll have to ask my sister (she works there too). We’ve got to get our boys in lessons to – Jeremiah still has a fear (at 8 years old!) and Micah is going to be a triathalete (he seriously has a ridiculous mile time at 5 years old!). So excited to hear about your trip AND the baby soon after!
