the bloggity blog

Sorry I haven't felt very "bloggy" lately, but here goes........

I had a meeting with Tad's speech teacher this week & he will get to graduate from speech at the end of the year - HOORAY! He still has a slight lisp when he doesn't think about it, but if he tries he can control it. So I just need to be more diligent in reminding him & the speech teachers are going to send me a packet home with sentences so I can continue working with him at home this summer. Tad isn't as happy as I though he would be about graduating - he says he likes being able to get out of class!

I am thinking about starting another blog to sell some of my kiddos clothes they have outgrown. I got this idea from my friend's blog Crew's Closet. Not sure how it will work, but hopefully I can get it started this month sometime & see how it goes!

PhotobucketWe got our tax return last week so I got a Blackberry Storm! I love it! (sorry about the blurry picture!) Verizon Wireless had a buy 1 get 1 free sale, so Theo got one too! He picked out my pinkish-purple cover & he got one with tire tread. It was a little hard to get used to at first, especially typing on the touch screen or accidentally pushing buttons with my face when talking on the phone. I learn something new about it everyday! There are alot of good websites I've found with good information, so I will post another blog later with some links in case someone out there has a Storm already or is thinking of getting one.

I am very proud of Theo. He deals with the food banks with his job & has to go check on them several times a week. He has been most impressed with The King's Store House near downtown Tyler. They had some shelving that was falling down, so he built them a couple of new shelves & donated them. He is quite a shelf builder, I was very impressed. I went to visit them there the other day & they took me on a tour. It is pretty cool & they help alot of people.

Hope everyone is doing well! God bless!!

COOL. The lady who runs the King's Storehouse (Peggy Abernathy) is a precious older lady who goes to our church. Thank you for helping her, Theo!

I like the idea of the clothes blog. I won't be able to get anything, unless you have some OLD clothes of Tad's. Haha, I'm sure you don't have any of his 2T left over. Glad to hear that he's graduating.

Did Theo leave Brookshires? You should be proud of him, He's a great guy. We both are lucky ladies! We miss y'all.
