What can I say, but this has been a fairly normal week for my crew. No major happenings. The most drama we have had this week is me spraining my hand. I know a bit odd, but you know we never do things normal around here!!! I actually sprained the ligaments in my first 2 fingers. Swollen and bruised, but doing fine. Elijah is doing great in school and soccer. He scored a goal in today's game and is loving it. He had a lemonade stand today at the town's mile long yard sale, that is much longer than a mile. He sold bunches of toys. He is wanting a Nitendo DS and I refuse to buy him one. He had to earn the money. Today he did that. He is sooooooo excited. Sarah is being the princess as always. She is doing go with the homeschooling. She is really smart. She is now telling me that she needs to go potty if she has to poop. One morning, she actually went to the potty and almost got her pants down and on the potty to pee. She needed very little help. I was very proud of her. She is talking more and much more independent these days. Doug is tackling all the yard projects and staying busy. I am not getting as much done right now, but soon I am sure.
We are a family of five who have been blessed by God. Doug and I were married in 2002 and immediately wanted to start a family. God blessed us with our son Elijah in 2003 through the beauty of birth. Elijah loves to play outdoors and to play with his Nitendo. We were blessed with Sarah in 2007 through the beauty of adoption. Sarah has Down syndrome, but is not defined by it. She is proving all of the statistics wrong and is growing and achieving at a record pace. We were blessed with Isaac in 2010 to complete our family. He is also adopted and has Down syndrome, excited to watch him grow!! Doug is a utility forester with the local utility company. I, Robyn, am a stay at home mom who is never at home. I am a Young Living Essential Oils Independent Distributor and I love my oils! Elijah in the sixth grade and loves all things mindcraft and Star Wars. Sarah is 9 and in the 2nd grade. Isaac is almost 5 and doing preschool work. We are a homeschooling family that lives life to the fullest. I love my life and I am so blessed.
