scrap for the hell of it

Ahem….who is this adorable boy???
When did you suddenly turn into this specimen of kindness and joy??

Oh yeah, I must have been busy with your brother.
Thank you Mackinley for just being the best son a mother could wish for.

I can’t remember the last time I felt compelled to scrap without the aid of a challenge behind me!!

Gosh it felt good!! This kit is from Bon’s months ago and have been seriously eyeing it off and NOW IT’S DONE.
I probably need to get off my backside and do some serious work/delightfulness before both the boys finish school.
Mackinley’s chest is tight again. He might just finish a day earlier and be dragged around the ARt Shed and Reverse Garbage tomorrow with his “on a mission” mother.

Had Rainer’s excursion to Trevena Glen Farm Stay today. I’m not quite sure what the purpose of the trip was. There was no schedule, pecs, support from the staff or real good communication from the Director. Quite cranky actually (I feel an email coming on). It only lasted about an hour and then we had to take them home!

Mackinley begged me to come to his excursion today. I should have and just put Rainer in his regular C&K day and spent some time with the “neglected one”.

Rainer has his first Prep visitation tomorrow (yeah, a little late…tell me about it!!!) and again on Monday.

So, in retrospect I should learn to ask more detailed questions and not just leave the planning and preparation to people who are in control….to BE in control.

In the home stretch now, so should just let it wash over me. I don’t have enough energy to do EVERYTHING!!

The meeting with the Austism Advisory people was FANTASTIC. Can access the full $12000 before Rainer starts Year 1!!! Another busy year ahead…..again!! LOL

brighter and buoyant….

    I so understand what you are talking about, Gigi!! I have the same thoughts about Kate as we spend more time with Grace, out of necessity. It is starting to balance out a bit more and all anyone can do is their best. You sound like a great mum. How could Mackinley turn out so great if it wasn’t for you.

What are you thinking?
