Its the end of the schook year here and What a year this has been. It's been a growth year for all of us.
I took on a position I wasn't sure I wanted but now can't imagine it any other way.
Hubby took a job that turn out to be nothing but a headache but his determination and strength to see this job through is an inspiration.
Tyler tried a new school this year and totally loves it.
Dylan has worked hard and is becoming a inspiring athlete.
And last but certainly not least is Mason, who is growing by leaps and bounds daily. Although we still seem to be figuring each other out he is learning and so are we. I'm excited for this summer as we have begun to understand we can do anything with him if we "practice" first. There are a couple of things the books are right about. ..
1. Routine routine routine: Mason is much less aggressive when he knows what is coming next. Which is sometimes hard at 2 in the afternoon when everyone else is doing their own thing, but we will adjust.
2. Rules have to be rules ALWAYS: as in no matter what. No opening the door of the oven even when it's off, it becomes a habit that could turn dangerous.
Now a couple of things the books are wrong about:
1. Man does this boy like touch. He loves snuggles and initiates snuggles more than anyone else. We are praying this helps us through the teenage years.
2. He is "learning"...even sometimes through cause and effect. Mas has learned (after using Qui Gung massage) that banging his head against something hard...hurts. This is a new concept to him and he is now very gently placing his head against a wall when he's mad ; 0)
We know that God is so very good and can heal everything if it is his will. As long a we keep our patience so will our boys. So this summer I pray for patience. ..lots and lots and lots of patience, And sunshine, and laughs, and peace, and watermelon, and love, and fun, and....it's a good thing the Lord doesn't mind my long prayers.
Happy summer everyone!
