Ben passed the Indiana bar exam!! We're very excited! And very grateful that they posted the results on September 12th. Last year when he took it in Virgina (and passed) we had to wait until October 31st to find out.
He's still job searching though..so prayers would be appreciated. Although we are hopeful that passing the bar will help him find a job easier.
It got colder here today...highs in the mid-60's. This is basically my favorite weather ever...except we are not prepared for colder weather and I need to somehow dig out all our cold weather clothes. But, I LOVE the cooler weather like this.
It totally makes we want to take everyone and go hiking.
Except Greta has a broken toe...so no hiking for her.
I did dig out some of our colder clothes and found a pair of boots for Elsa. Except now she wants to wear them ALL THE TIME. I mean ALL THE TIME. Heaven forbid we take them off for anything (like to change her pants). Cries of "boots, boots, boots, boots" until she gets them on again. In stark contrast to the rest of my kids (who prefer to be discalced) this girl loves her shoes. I forsee a very full closet in future years.
I'm toying with getting Elsa evaluated for speech. She's mostly fine and actually says lots of words, but isn't really combining words yet and a lot of her words only we understand (like she says "A-ah" for herself (Elsa). I don't think she's that behind and she's pretty good at conveying what she wants across, but I think she might be a tiny bit behind. Anyone has experience with early intervention or speech therapy for young kids. Heidi was in speech therapy but she didn't start until she was older (over 4) and in hindsight I wish we had started her a lot younger.
So, I'm sure you've heard about the mysterious respiratory virus in the midwest that is landing numerous children in the hospital. I'm trying to decide if I should be worried or not. Well, obviously I shouldn't be worried, because worry never changes anything. Or so, my husband tells me (personally I'm not convinced). Nonetheless it's probably wise to load up on Vitamin D, Vitamin C and immune-boosting herbs (like garlic).
Go see Jen for more takes.
