Progression

I stand amazed at my two little blessings each day. As our busy season approaches (way too quickly), the boys will be starting pre-school again, this Monday as a matter of fact. I cannot believe they are 3 years old!!!

For 32 weekers and all of the medical diagnsois they each have overcome and to be able to say and do all of the things I am going to speak of in a minute.......I stand amazed, not just at them. They did not do this alone and I certainly had NOT a hand in it. God is so good ALL of the time!

Less than a year ago we they were signing EVERYTHING. They each spoke maybe a dozen or so words each, when prompted. Wow! I have worked with them some since they came out of pre-school last October. I am so proud of you boys! My heart is overwhelmed to be your Momma!!! Thank you Lord for all of your blessings!!!!

You said it....kids are blessings! Even on the hard days I'm thankful God saw fit to give me mine. And it sounds like your boys are super smart! I know you're proud of them. :-) Have a great day!

hoIt's so exciting to watch your children learn, isn't it? I love to watch Daniel and Sarah Beth as they figure out this world they live in.
