The Rest Of Our Weekend

Our five year wedding anniversary was on Saturday, so what better way to celebrate then to go to a friend’s house for a tailgating party and watch some Hawkeye football.  Too bad the Hawks couldn’t pull off a win.  Oh well, we had good food and a lot of fun.  Thanks McArtors!  Today was another busy Sunday.  This afternoon, I helped with a baby shower for Mindy, my sister-in-law.  We had a good turnout, good food, and they got a lot of great gifts for the baby.  Everything was so cute that it almost makes me want to have another. . . but not anytime soon.  While all of us girls were at the shower.  Papa Steve, Brad, and Jaxson spent a lot of time enjoying the beautiful weather playing outside.  This evening, Brad and I had our second Alpha class.  We are very excited about our small group that we are in.  Jeriann Ritter, the Channel 13 meteorologist, and her husband are our table leaders and there are two other couples that are around our same age.  Each week we start off with a nice meal, then the band plays some of the favorite worship songs, then the lesson, then we break into our small groups.  We are learning a lot already and having fun doing it.  A follow-up to Jaxson’s speech evaluation since I forgot to post about it and a lot of people have been asking me how it went.  A lady came on Wednesday to eval him and she was very impressed with Jaxson.  She said that he is in the high end of normal for his physical abilities, following directions, and social skills.  She did say that he is in the low end of normal for his speech, but still normal.  She said not to worry because he is still right on track.  After talking to several parents, many of them say that it seems that they just start talking overnight.  So I guess I will just wait for that night to come, but in the meantime, we’ll keep working on it.
