This week Journey had her annual eye exam and Avery had her initial exam. I remembered to snap a few photos!
Journey's eyes had changed just enough to require new glasses. The good news the change was less than her last exam!
Avery is somewhat of a clown and once she realized the photos were being taken she had to pose!
Poor Dr. Izer, nothing worse than a mom snapping photos during an exam and the patient wiggling!
The good news, Avery has perfect vision and will not need an exam for a couple of years!
On Tuesday, our social worker came for Avery's six month post adoption visit! The older girls love Sherry and watch for her arrival. Journey usually greets her at her car and walks her out! I failed to take photos, maybe next time I will think to get one of Sherry and all the girls. We will be seeing her again soon for Journey and Kendall's 4 year post visit and then in a few months after that for Eden and Mackinley's 3 year visit! Plus before the year is out she will be back for one last visit for Avery!
On Wednesday it was time for my hair appointment. My sister told me that my color was too dark! I had highlights put in, and the girls had told me it was too short so I left the length! So many to please! Anyway I snapped a selfie to send to my sister to show her the highlights.
I hate selfies and I really don't like having my photo taken at all, nonetheless you can see the new lighter color. I plan to keep my hair about this length for now in attempt to keep everyone happy!
Today, Friday, I was able to take an unplanned day off! We stayed up late last night and slept in this morning! The joy of homeschooling, our schedule is flexible!
While things are better here yet they are still far from perfect! Avery is loud and demands to be the center of attention! She is unkind to her sisters and believes that she doesn't have to follow the house rules when I'm not home. So you see, we still have a ways to go.
The good news she eats and sleeps well. She is buckling her seatbelt without being told every time we get in the car! Progress! It seems she was in a very lenient foster home as she is happiest when she is doing what she wants to do! Aren't we all like that? Happiest when we are doing our own will rather than that of the Father's?
I called Lifeline yesterday when some of my concerns about our lack of progress in certain areas. I really didn't feel the advice given during this call was particularly helpful/useful. Don't get me wrong she was kind and listened well! I doubt I'll call again but I certainly won't rule that option out if I feel they have something more to offer in the way of advice.
This weekend we will celebrate the Chinese New Year with lunch at Mr. Chen's after church on Sunday! I failed to get us signed up for any of the Chinese dinner celebrations within the community.
Until next time . . .
