It has been a week, and there really isn't a great deal of an update to post. Jason's wounds are improving on a steady basis, and I am hopeful that they will be closed soon. I know this has been said before, but with the new prosthetic it looks like it might actually happen this time. Once that is done, then we can move on to the next step, whatever that happens to be.
I been busting my tail working on the property. We have about 2 1/2 acres of land, and much of that is simply covered in weeds and small woody type plants. They don't look particularly good, and they are a fire hazard, going into the summer. I want to eliminate as much as I can, before it gets too hot. I have managed to knock down about half the open land, and will continue on the other land, beginning tomorrow - I hope. It rained pretty good tonight, so the land may not be to friendly to walk on with the mower I'm using. The land can be steep in some areas, so I have to be careful. Worst case, the rain will put me back a day or two.
Linda has been working pretty hard too, keeping up with the house and making sure Jason's area (mainly his bedroom) stays clean. With his two dogs it can be quite the challenge. Just as she finishes cleaning the two dogs run outside and get all dirty again and bring a bunch of it back in with them. They both are loving and great dogs, however, they are completely and totally - - - dogs.
The girls are growing so fast that we can almost see it from day to day. They are doing well in school, Jackie is receiving resources; classroom support, Speech, and Occupational Therapy, and she has made some significant strides this past year. Stacy is keeping up with her lessons, she enjoys her teacher and reading is her favorite subject. We have been faced with challenges, in that when the girls have been with us this year, they have missed one (1) day. That day happened to be the house dedication, and it was important for them to be there, and it was an excused absence. When they have not been with us, they have missed MANY days (a total of more than 3-weeks), with most of them being unexcused. However, I think the school year will end on a positive note, so I'm hopeful for next year. Thank you, for all your continued support and prayers. Take care and stay positive.
