Hello to all out there in internet land! Things have been going great for us. In fact I am trying to let my “germ guard” down a bit. (That is extremely rare for me.) We have been going out to functions. On Friday night we went out to eat and then Saturday we went to Lexis and Emeline’s Tae Kwon Do testing. They were testing for their Orange belts…:0). Ava does not know how to act in public and we usually get stares. She is not fond of people she doesn’t know. So all in all not much going on here and we LOVE it.
One thing that is a little hard is trying to discipline Miss Ava. She was “sick” for much of her life that she rarely could do much of anything to get herself in trouble. Well all that has changed and Brian and I find it challenging to teach her the good from the bad. I know all you Moms and Dads out there with special needs kids know exactly what we are going through. She needs to learn but wow is it tough on all of us. With that said she is full of spunk and vigor and we LOVE it even though it does test us at times…;)
Here is a few pictures of the girls Tae Kwon Do.
Emeline trying to break her board.
Lexis breaking her board!
It was a long day but we were very proud of both of them. It is wonderful doing “normal” family things.
So today was an opportunity to take some Valentine’s Day Pictures. Ava accepted the challenge gladly and Emeline was also game! Lexis well she did her own thing.
So as you can see she is doing well. Her weight is 31 pounds. I’m always telling her slowly but shirley! She will be going to a surgical check-up on the 23rd. I can’t wait for them to see how great she is doing again!!
I’ll leave you with a few Bible verse that sums up my thankfulness and Praise to You Lord….
1 Chronicles 29:11-13
"Yours, O LORD, is the greatness and the power
and the glory and the majesty and the splendor,
for everything in heaven and earth is yours.
Yours, O LORD, is the kingdom;
you are exalted as head over all.
Wealth and honor come from you;
you are the ruler of all things.
In your hands are strength and power
to exalt and give strength to all.
Now, our God, we give you thanks,
and praise your glorious name."
For I know the plans I have for you," declares the LORD, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.
Thanks again for checking in on Ava. We are blessed to have you all in our lives to help us pray and magnify God in His healing hands!
