I drove out to the desert to meet the boys camping. It was dark when I arrived. I had no idea where I was really. I just knew that I was only forty-five minutes from our home. I wasn't expecting... Continue reading

William recevied an Indiana Jones hat and whip for Christmas from Santa. He looked so cute, I just had to get a picture. So I tried to get a nice natural light shot, but this was all I was getting...... Continue reading

Landscape photography doesn't come naturally to me, but every now and then I take a shot and find myself staring at it for a long time. This is one of those shots. Continue reading

I am greatful for my little 5 lb chihuahua - his tiny heart seems to be able to fill up a whole house full of love!
Why? Because I didn't expect a thing and I received everything. People at work lit a candle taped between two little milk dud boxes and sang to me... gave me a container of the most delicious dark chocolate truffles... and... Continue reading

Wedding photos... Part 1. We'll start with the best part... my boys! Aren't they handsome?! I find it interesting to look through different people's photos of the same wedding. You start to wonder... were they at the same wedding as... Continue reading

I took these photographs one day just before my morning laps. Although I'm not sure five stokes, flip... five stokes, flip... is technically laps. Maybe I should just call it my morning dip. Everyone else was sleeping and the sun... Continue reading

Do you recognized these eyes?! Yes, it's me. I'm back. We have moved and I am now somewhat settled so it's time to start sharing my photos and stories again. It's going to be difficult since I have an intrinsic... Continue reading

Thank you, Diane. The audiologist did warn me about wearing them too much. It has worked out as he has only wanted to wear them in select, more extreme situations. Although on the upcoming plane ride... we are bring both the ear plus and the headphones! I don't think either of us can go through that again. ;-)

William is growing up. On one hand, too fast for me. I can't believe he has graduated from Kindergarten. It seems like only yesterday he was a little baby that cried all night long and didn't let me get one... Continue reading

Jack's class at school performed the play, America's Tallest Tales. I think the story line was something about how Paul Bunyon lost Babe, the blue ox, and Paul visited with different fiction characters until his found Babe. But the highlight... Continue reading

I woke up to this the other day. Both my boys sleeping in an identical pose. It was one of those moments when a mother just stands in silence and sighs. Both of their heads tilted to the left, one... Continue reading

It has been a while since I have come here to share our journey with you. The main reason for my absence is we are moving to Arizona. While Jack has continued on his path, I have concentrated on the move. It has taken all of my energy and time to prepare our home for sale, look for a new home, preparing at work, and organizing everything I need to move a family to another state. Instead of being panicked about Jack every day, I have had plenty of other things to panic about. It has turned out to be... Continue reading

When I started writing about Jack's journey with an auditory processing disorder, I had grandiose ideas that I would write about things that would help people in similar situations. I would take the time to share all that I learn and help people facing the same struggle make some of the difficult decisions this journey throws your way - and there are plenty of them. Instead, I found myself struggling to hold on. After every defining moment... just when I thought I hit the bottom of the iceberg... more comes. Sometimes I began to think I couldn't handle any more.... Continue reading

It's been quite a roller coaster ride for me over the last few weeks. So much so that I could find the strength to write about what has been going on. It has been quite a journey... especially for me, emotionally. Leading up to the testing schedule with Dr. Riddle, it was hard to think about anything else. What would she find? Who she find anything? Is this really all just an auditory processing issue? Why does everyone that works with him tell me he has something different? APD, language delays, ADD? Who is right and who is wrong? Then... Continue reading

Very well! I am waiting for the written report, but even so far - with just the consultation afterward - it was worth every penny. I know more than I did before. I have a good idea on what to do... and a good idea on what not to do moving forward. (Note: I had extraordinary circumstances and worked directly with Dr. Riddle in lieu of the DU program. My understanding is the results are the same, it just takes a little longer to get the results through the DU program since you have more than one person reviewing the final report. I have heard only great things about their program.)

We took a trip to the Wildlife Experience Museum in Parker, Colorado. It has to be one of the coolest places on earth to spend an afternoon with your family. And we got to experience it with two families! There... Continue reading

Tonight, I just want to tell you how much I love this boy. He just got on his new too-big-for-me bike and gave it his all. He rode it like there was no tomorrow. He rides up the street... just... Continue reading

Last week, Jack's school had a book fair at the local Barnes and Noble. Just with book purchased in the store that night... they raised $3,000. Amazing. More Amazing then that was Jack's class sang, America the Beautiful. And they... Continue reading
