I must say this month has been a tornado. We started back to school this month. Which put lots of work on OCD mama trying to make sure we had everything and had things ready to jump right in. But we made it through, still trying to eat into a routine though.
This month has also been full of appointments. We found out we are having a baby boy! This excited Micah and he told us he already knew. The girls wanted a girl but decided that having another boy would give Micah someone to play with and leave them alone. We also have had many dentist appointments for us all. Everyone got their teeth cleaned and now some are getting those dreadful fillings. Though I must applaud our dentist office because they are a great support for me being the only person who keeps my kids. We are all allowed to go back and they allow them to watch things. When I had my teeth cleaned and scrapped for tarter build up the kids got in my face and watched as they explained everything they were doing! How's that for a lesson on teeth!!
We also had a more serious appointment for Kiya. She is seven years old and still struggles with paying attention and its really made her fall behind in her reading. After trying everything that I knew how; diet, curriculum, glasses, and tutor programs, I had her evaluated for ADD. Well she has it and a behavior disorder which I think that this point is just her release for her frustrations of not being able to focus and learn like the others. So she was given a script and though I have been hesitant to try it I will be having it filled today and giving it a go. We are a natural family and don't generally do meds or anything so this is a huge step. Though after lots of prayer and thinking I cannot allow my daughter to suffer because of something I don't like if it will help her. I it doesn't I don't have to continue giving it to her either.
I pray September brings us progress and some fun learning. I pray God continues to bless us at the new church we found. I pray that we can enjoy the last of the warm weather before fall hits us and we get smacked with all the holidays and the new baby coming to change our world. I also thank God for how far he has gotten us as well.
