Libby had her K5 graduation last week and participated beautifully and next year she and Abby will attend K4 together. After a discussion with her teacher we decided that it would be better for her to get a more solid foundation under her, so that she can learn all that there is to learn in the K5 that she will attend again after that (reading, cursive, adding/subtracting). So she will be two years behind other kids her age, but when she was diagnosed they told me that her social and academic age was about 3 1/2 so that put her at the same age as Abby. And Abby is certainly looking forward to going to school with Libby next year.

Caleb is growing like a weed! Well, actually, he really doesn't seem bigger, but he's talking more and more. So I guess he's growing like a ... sponge?

Ben is nearly done with the 2nd grade and spends all his time at his grandma's house, since she took over homeschooling him. I think the reason that she did that was because it makes it easier to homeschool Gabriel... ^_~ My mom mentioned that he should spend more time at home, but I pointed out to her that if I'd had the opportunity, I would have spent all my time with my cousin.

My friend, Anna (the midwife that delivered Caleb), and I were having lunch the other day when she told me that due to the complications I continue to have when delivering babies, the head midwife said that if I get pregnant again they won't take me as a patient. That kinda ticks me off, but the point is moot at the moment, seeing as how we have NO room for another kid in this three bedroom house.

I finally got my horses back from my mom's house. They are now at Jeremy's Aunt Sharon's house, which is only about 5 miles from us. So I've been riding as much as possible. Sunday I decided I would try to get up on my Kizza,'s bare back by jumping, something I've never really mastered. I was almost on him, when I accidentally jerked on the reins, he side-stepped, and I went the rest of the way over his back and landed on my shoulder. (Jeremy said that from across the yard it looked like a swan-dive) It rattled my brain around a little, but I didn't feel too bad afterward. Well now, my neck is KILLING ME! Can you get whiplash from falling off a standing horse? ^_~ I've been taking ibuprofen for it but I may have to break out the oxycodone I've squirrelled away.
