A Good day to watch cartoons..................

Wasn't yesterday a beautiful November day?!?!?!?

Nathan was kind of having a rough morning - we both were. LONG day the day before, I didn't sleep more than 2 hours because of the wind and noise outside, Nathan was having anxiety, etc.

About 9:30 Tanya showed up with Ethan to watch cartoons with Nathan (Ethan has been talking about this for weeks!!!)...........................
Ethan just crawled right in and sat for about 2 hours and watched cartoons. Tanya and I had latte's and played with the new Ipod touch Nathan got me for Mother's Day. A wonderful quiet morning. It picked Nathan's spirits right up, and mom's too.

Thanks so much Tanya - if you had called to ask to come, I would've said no because Nathan was having a rough morning, but God knew just what Nathan needed................Ethan and cartoons!!

Last night G'pa and G'ma Korthuis brought dinner and ate with us. Nathan got up in his chair and joined us. It was fun to sit around the table together and the food was FABULOUS - thanks mom - nothing like meat and potatoes!!!

I went over to a friends house about 8:30 for 1 1/2 hours to say goodbye to a precious friend who is moving away. It was good to sit and visit with friends who enjoy laughter..........and rolos!! :-) I think if Nathan gets physical therapy twice a week, I should do this once a week for emotional therapy!!

Today we have PT, this is always somewhat exhausting for both of us. Randy got home last night - YEAH!! When he's home I do the first 2 meds of the night and he does the 2 early morning ones - such a help! Tonight I will do the 12:30am and then I AM SLEEPING IN!!! No school, no work, no nothing, just sleep (now let's hope I can actually stay asleep!!)

Ethan made sure he told everyone yesterday that he got to watch cartoons with his Nay-Nay. When I asked him if he would like to watch cartoons with Nay-Nay again, his response was, "Mom, I think that is a great idea. Can I go tomorrow?"

Nothing can keep a boy from smiling when they've got cartoons! :-) Glad to know that rings true for four year olds and boys in their 20's too.

Hey! I am so glad to hear all the progress! He has come such a long way and he's such a testament to God's love and guidance. I heard you got his laundry but Ben didn't bring in the pillowcase I made for Nathan! What's your guys' address and I'll ship it to ya! :) I hope each day brings more progress! :)
