My little boy had a birthday !

Liam and I had all kinds of ideas of how to celebrate his special day.....sadly none of them quite came together has we hoped.......so we decided to have a do over and share Mother's Day....:)  When he woke he ate leftover birthday dessert for breaky, we re-lit his birthday "8" candle & I sang my little heart out as requested.  We snuggled and planned out our day......after church we would head to Keogh Lake for a couple of hours to hang with friends and enjoy the sunny day we had been gifted......








We ended up staying until after 7pm.....the sun was warm & lovely.  We had GREAT company, happy dogs and endless snacks.......It was a lovely day !!

Keisha gets her wheels.....





Several weeks ago I was chatting with our learning consultant Wendy.  We got talking about some of my ideas/plans for the kids.  One had been trying to figure out a safe supportive way for Keisha to ride a bike on her own.  All the low cost options were looking like they wouldn't work for us and I was doing a little thinking out loud about how I would possible pay for one of the more expensive options.  A short while I received an email saying for me to go order that bike.....that the funds had been approved from her " Special Ed" funding through homeschool !!!   So I did !!!  It took a couple of weeks to come in, then a couple of more weeks to put it together and make arrangements to get it home.  This past Friday I put out an invitation for our local friends to stop by the elementary school parking lot to share in a special event......my big girl got to try out her new set of wheels...:)  I'm so thankful for this gift and she's so thrilled to be able to ride with the others !!!
