So this past weekend we got to attend the recognition ceremony for the coaches. He was very tickled and that his family went and watched. It was a very nice luncheon and ceremony. Here are just a few pictures.
I am spending a lot of time reading my camera book trying to figure out how to take better pictures. So please understand I'm in training!
Daddy's proud daughters
Wonderful friends of ours
Congratulations! We are very proud of you!
Keeping my fingers crossed just a little teeny tiny bit for a snow day this week! We have not had snow yet (a dusting one time) and so I'm trying not to get my hopes up. I blame the weather people for getting me thinking about 8 inches of snow coming! I have already concocted a list of things I could do at home. I went to Wally World and got stocked up on groceries so I'm really ready. I'll report back and let you know if it's a thumbs up or down!
My mom is doing reasonable well being back to the nursing home. Her feeding tube is going very well. The doctor is keeping it at a 24 hour feeding right now so the pole/bag/etc is a little cumbersome trying to take her walking but that's okay. Hopefully she will move to 6 or so feedings/day in a few weeks. She still knows all of us and communication is pretty limited with the Alzheimers at times but sometimes she surprises us. One day I asked her what she wanted to watch on TV and she said "Vanna" (Wheel of Fortune!). She is not eating by mouth much at all. They call it "pleasure eating" and it is a pretty tough process with the swallowing and not letting it aspirate into the lungs. The Pneumonia has stayed away and that is a blessing. She goes to PT, OT, Speech daily and the beauty shop once a week. She really enjoys that. She has a very nice private room and her nurses are very good to her. I'm grateful beyond words for all the prayers that we given for her and because of those prayers, God has healed her for this time. All praise and thanks we give to our Heavenly Father. Every day I learn more and more to "Be still and know that I am God". Psalm 46:10
My staff at school got new laptops. What a wonderful blessing and I'm very grateful but for me it is MAJOR to learn to run something new electronically. I have a free upgrade due for my cell phone but I can't bear the thought of having to learn how to run a new phone. So I'm spending my weekend trying to figure all the new "gadgets" on this thing. Between my camera and my laptop, I'm about on brain overload. HA!
Hoping all of you are having a wonderful January and are fully recovered from the holiday season.
Blessings to you all!
