Family Update August 08

School started for Music Man last Thursday. He has now finished a full week and is doing well. He is in resource for his academics on a modified third grade curriculum. He is with his typical peers during homeroom, recess, lunch and activity (computer, library, pe, music and art.) He likes his new teachers (and we do too!) Music Man gets speech, OT and PT in school and speech in private therapy as well. We have recently found a hippotherapy program just south of us, but do not yet know if we can get it covered by insurance. (Hippotherapy is a physical, occupational and speech therapy treatment strategy that utilizes equine movement, as defined by the American Hippotherapy Association.) He has various appointments scheduled over the next few months including his first visit to the orthodontist! We actually have to travel to Tupelo for his orthodontics doctor as no one around here takes his insurance.

Farm Boy still has a couple of more weeks before he starts back in Mother's Day Out. He is looking forward to starting his "school" again. Unfortunately, his two closest buddies are a few months older than him and started school this year. He will end up being one of the oldest in his classes (just like me, lol!) Farm Boy will begin soccer in a local church in another week or so. It is non-competitive and a lot of fun for the kids.

I started a blog for Remembering Your Baby on July 3, which was seven years since we lost Sammie. Please feel free to visit if you would like to see it.

Please pray with us as we consider the next chapter in our life. We are aching to get back into ministry after three years of soaking. We know our heart's desire but want to be absolutely sure it is what God wants and not just what we want. Details will be forth-coming as soon as we know what we are going to do.

Blessings, Dawn
