It seems that by the time I get around to blogging about what's happening, I've forgotten what I was supposed to say.

We still haven't gotten the main a/c fixed but managed to survive the last of the summer with three window units. In fact, our electricity bill was lowered by half and so it was indeed a blessing in disguise. And now autumn is here, bringing with it cooler weather, a much needed reprieve from the typical southern heat. Time to pull out the long sleeved shirts and sweaters and start making hotchocolate.

Caleb is so close to walking that he can almost reach out and grab it. He pulls up to stand and the lets go, balancing for a moment or two before gracefully plopping onto his bottom. He has most recently cut his two top teeth, so that makes four in total. He is still exclusively nursing, with just the tiniest of tiny tastes of things here and there, which he always spits out. Most recently he battled a case of strep, topped with a virus (which I also had--NOT FUN!) and then two weeks later was back in the ER with pnuemonia. And yet through it all he's been the most adorable sweet and cheerful little guy, a true blessing from above.

Libby is still attending kindergarten; every morning she gets up excited to go, even on Saturday and Sunday! There has been some concern voiced by her teachers and the speech therapist that she may have a mild form of autism and so we are waiting for word from the specialists in Charleston as to when her appointment will be.

Ben is still homeschooling without too much protest. His handwriting and reading skills have improved greatly this year. And whenever I need to correct him about something, as long as I explain to him that it's God that he's trying to obey, he doesn't resist. He is trying so hard to be a good Christian and for that I am so thankful.

Abigail has finally decided to use the potty again after a long regression (probably caused by the new sibling). Thank the Good Lord for Dora pottyseats! We continue to work with her in learning to control her emotions. She can so sweet but she has a temper like you wouldn't believe!

All in all, I continue to look at my life in amazement. God has blessed me inumerably and I can't seem to thank Him enough.
