So much happening

there are so many things going on right now.
for starters it's snowing. it's been snowing since sometime in the middle of the night and it's supposed to snow thru tomorrow night. It's also super cold and super windy. Not a fun combo at all. I'm not ready for winter and snow and cold. I still remember last year, well this year really as it was still snowing in mid april. i never understood winter blues until living here.
in other news..the kids are growing. emily has decided that it's official. she is an adult. she wants to read big kid books, watch big kid tv, play on her computer, email, get a cell phone, etc. She came home yesterday from the bus crying and crying. took a bit to calm her down and figure out what was happening. She really likes a boy in her class and on her bus. (same boy) one minute he likes her then one minute he hates her and is antagonizing her. Apparently yesterday on the bus he figured out the biggest thing to do to get under her skin. Befriend her little brother. Emily lost it. Jace did an AMAZING thing, and gave the boy his things back and went to his sister instead. I was so proud of him!
Jace is doing well. He's trying to get all of his tummy things sorted out. We've started adding a few things to his diet. The other day he got some fat free frozen yogurt for dessert. he was BEYOND excited! he's doing good in school and only has 5 more of his 42 jolly phonics sounds to learn. then it's on to sight words. he's starting to sound out words and his writing is really improving!
Ben is doing super good right now! He's enjoying school and seems to be learning. His sentences are improving and we are actually able to have directed logical conversation! It's so great to get to talk to him a bit and have a conversation. He still has meltdowns at the drop of a hat, but atleast the happy times right now are getting sooo much better!
Ari is doing well. She's growing so fast. She's putting words together to make sentences, and is enjoying singing. Twinkle twinkle, and the wheels on the bus can be heard around here often! they have upped her Occupational therapy to twice a month and i think that will be great for her!
bri is good. he just got put in charge of another project at work. so that should keep him busy!
i'm ok. i'm rushing around trying to get everything done before my surgery. so many things i need to get done and organized to make the transition as smooth as possible for the kids, bri, my mom, and me. i can't believe that 3 weeks from today i will be in surgery right now. wow. i'm excited and just slightly nervous. i think i'm so busy right now trying to get ready that i don't have to much time to be nervous.
i'm hoping to get alot done this weekend. maybe even start decorating for christmas since i won't be able to help the weekend after thanksgiving when we normally would! tomorrow evening we have hired a sitter and are going out with a couple we have gotten to be good friends with! i'm super excited! it will be really nice to have a night out with other adults!
