The one thing I was looking forward to about this week? I was hoping it would give me a glimpse into what it was going to be like when and if William goes into a program to further his education or gets a job. I needed to see and feel what it was like for him to not be here as he helps me so much every day. Wow... Thank you God for William for all he does around here. God helped me every day do everything but it was much harder without him here. I want William to not be held back by me needing him here so this was a good test run. It was also a great opportunity for him to see what schooling would be like. He has been home schooled his whole life. So, having to be to a class on time, being in a class where you sit in hard seats and have to crank out information and take notes was very good for him. He came home very sick on Monday from the stress of it being the first day but did better every day he went. So this was a good thing for us all to go thru this week. On Wednesday, when I pulled up to the huge high school the class was held at and dropped him off with his lunch and back pack, I had the feeling like when you drop your kindergartener off the first day of school. So funny!
I learned that God is with me always and will help us to get every day done. I will need to make some changes around here to make things go smoothly without him here but God will help us with life and all it demands.
William learned he can do this (school, job or anything life brings). That even though he had to step way out of his comfort zone and it was very stressful, God helped him and he did great. He kept up with typical young people, his age, in a main stream Drivers Ed class and not only passed but did well. Thank you God! Great job William!! He has two days of driving with a driving instructor next week and then will get his Certificate of Completion. Then he can take his test to get his drivers license. Yippee! Another milestone met!
We had many appointments this week as well. The biggest one for William on Friday.
The test results do show William has the beginning stages of Addisons. That is not the greatest news but we have been praying for answers, so it is what it is. The good news is, now he can get the treatment and medication he needs to help him feel well again. Praise God we have an answer.
We had an appointment for baby "K".
|See how chubby she is getting! I love it! I hate blocking out the children's sweet faces. Hopefully some day I wont have to do that anymore.|
We had an appointment for "T".
So now if the calendar is correct...if the calendar does not lie... and we have no surprise appointments pop up, we will be back to our normal four or five appointments a week again and things will be slower and more predictable again for a few weeks. Thank you God!
I pray your summer is going well and greatly blessed!
