Hi! Are you glad to see me sooner than before? I am glad to be here! Oh, one big thing to tell everyone. Wesley took my canister of Stove Top stuffing and was eating it! This is huge for him!! He eats so few things! And I got proof!!

Last night, we went to the Paw Paw fair. My brother in law usually has a car in the demolition derby there. He wasn't able to drive this year, so his nephew did.
The car didn't run for long, but Stevie got some good hits in. He drove in the King of the Hill at the end, but we didn't stay for that, so I don't know how well he did then. Nicholas got to ride some rides...even got his daddy on one! I got to take Alex around. He had fun. He's just 2, so this was the first year that he understood the rides. Wesley stayed home with his Poppy. He would not have done well at the derby. He does enjoy riding the rides, but sometimes it's hard to get him to sit still.

Nicholas went home with Mom after the derby and Rich left this morning to go to lessons, practice and then a gig tonight. So, I had some time to get some stuff done. Got some dishes and clothes washed, floors vacuumed and still had some time to make some soap! Dad brought them back in this afternoon and since Wesley has not had any medicine, he's currently running back and forth from hallway, through the livingroom and kitchen to the laundry room and back. Tonight's not going to be any fun without his medicine, but we will get through it!

Soap and stuff

Good afternoon all. I've been thinking about a blog for a you can see. I try to start it and then it falls by the wayside. Anyway, I make soap and am attempting to sell it, so a blog may help in that endeavor. Also, I am reading a book with a group of moms from my MOPS group this summer and a blog was brought up there as well. I really like this idea. A blog would be a perfect place to journal God's blessings in my easy place to come back and be encouraged when the going gets tough. Another reason would be to journal Wesley's progress. As slow as he progresses sometimes, it's hard to see it. Actually, his therapist just reminded me of it the other day. I was getting frustrated and she pointed out several things. So, I thought I would use my blog for all these things. Bear with me...I can be slow getting things started. I think that I am going to put in separate entries for each of these things so it will be easier to organize. I really am thinking "out loud" here, so feel free to ignore. :-)

Ok, Here we go.

I am going to make a considerable effort to keep up this blog. I have wanted to for some time, but it just doesn't seem to be happening. Anyway, I am no longer working, so I should (theoretically, anyway) have more time to do this. Not too much has changed since my initial post, we haven't had any additions to the family or anything, so that's all relevant. We do daily deal with Wesley's autism and Nick's all-boyishness. :-) Makes for never a dull moment in our home. I wouldn't change my family for the world though. They are what makes me happy. Making them happy is what I do. I shall start from the beginning tomorrow and dedicate a post to each member of the family. Thanks for looking!
