Thankful Thursday

This week I am thankful...

  • That Brooke is scheduled to leave the hospital on October 11th. It’s been a long, hard almost 10 weeks in the hospital, but there is now a light at the end of the tunnel. As soon as they get home and settled into their new routine, Amy, Ashley and I will be joining them for a girls-only slumber party – wine, hot tub, Tivos of Max from Dancing With The Stars, and lots of chocolate!

  • That my school district realized that they had a major problem with a bus driver and have since provided another bus with wonderful staff on it to transport Ashley from school each afternoon. Transportation management has even been calling me each day to make sure things are still running smoothly.

  • For Halloween Candy!

  • For the red and gold leaves that are just starting to dot my yard. In a month, I may not be as thankful for them all, but right now, they are beautiful.

  • That Amy and I were able to get tickets to see James Taylor in concert!

  • That Ashley’s cold has so far not turned into an ear infection.

  • That Ashley is loving her new art class at school, and that she is so proud of her artwork.

  • That my brother, by using his excellent advocacy skills, was able to convince his daughter’s school district to provide math instruction to his daughter – instruction that was listed in his daughter’s IEP but which the teacher was flat out refusing to provide.

  • For corn dogs, funnel cakes and fried Pepsi (yes, you read that correctly) at the Virginia State Fair.

  • That my son, Chip, made A’s and B’s on his school interim report card. He is carrying all advanced placement/honors classes and such grades are an incredible achievement!
