Don't be too jealous, it isn't like we're still there. haha. I almost posted these on Facebook throughout the week, but thought that would just be mean.

Of course he loves it - it's junk that he isn't allowed to eat at home. It's like a treat every day. lol. I can't wait until I'm actually allowed to pack his lunch, so I can have more control over how much junk he gets...

Thanks Mel. We adapt... it's what we're learning how to do. It doesn't often feel like being an 'awesome parent,' but... it's what he needs. I'm looking forward to talking through everything with you, too - I have a stack of articles and printouts for you, and I really want to hear more about your experiences in the classroom. :)

Yeah - the issue we're running into is that we're not in the district we're going to be in when he starts kindergarten - and won't be, until May/June. So, I could start it all now in our current district just to have some kind of support... or, I could... wait? I guess? I'm calling the 'new' district tomorrow to see if they'll work with us even though our address doesn't mesh. I have major doubts that they will though.

Thanks Mel.. thanks for always supporting me. :) Jess - wow, thank you. It's been so long since I've heard from you! Please don't apologize for HS, we were all very different back then. haha. I'll pray for your mom - I hope she breaks free soon, you'll both be so much better for it. I hope you are doing well, so good to hear from you. :)
They're awesome! And Jodi, wasn't it you that wrote about EasyTones a while back?
No moving away. Promise. :)

I would love to. And also? I would love it if you (and Amanda, if she is interested) would come down and run in the MoD one with me in September...

Wow, Jodi, it seems like you just started! You're doing great. :)

I figured you'd be up for some harassment. ;) I'm hoping for a Mon, Wed, Fri routine.. but knowing our schedule it's probably not going to be that easy. Like, I did today, I'll go tomorrow.. and then probably Thursday.. because I know that we have something going on Wed night, but I don't want to have a break from it for longer than a day. You know? So.. just general harassment might work. And guilt. I'm good with guilt. And as always, thank you for supporting me. :)

My brother and I used to listen to music and play cards (neverending games of War, and other games that we would make up)in the back of the van pretty much the whole time. We listened to tapes of songs my dad used to listen to when he was a kid - stuff from the 60s... Going through the Dakotas was the hardest - just flat, straight highway, with not much to look at.

Glacier Park is one of the most beautiful places I've ever been. When I was a kid, we used to take the (36 hour!!) drive every summer to Kalispell. My parents piled all three of us (I distinctly remember the year that my mother was 8 months pregnant with my sister and we made this trip - I was 7) in the van for the trip. Make sure that you spend some time at Flathead Lake! Brooke (

You can, but.. when we do stuff like this, I can't tell you how many times I think about how cool it would be if you guys were down here and could come too. Or how much fun it'll be when you visit. :)

My mom was abused. It wasn't a secret, it was by my stepdad and my sister and I lived with her. My mom had always been my hero, so to see her NOT make the decision to leave that I knew, at 14, was the smart thing to do made me crazy. She left him, eventually. And I believe that watching her go through the entire experience helped me to be more careful in choosing my partners. Because if my mom could make a mistake? I knew that I needed to be wary.

Oh yeah. Medicate him until he is about six, when he will be 're-evaluated' (as if there was any evaluation to begin with) because it's possible that the medication may help him learn the appropriate behavior... blahdeeblah. Also - to make me feel better, I guess? In order to protect against addiction, he would only be medicated during school hours. The weekends, and when he's at home in the evening, there won't be any medication. So. Right.

I'm doing what I can with the pink, and the dresses. But don't start talking about tutus again, or I may start regressing. lol
