Pics and more Pics!

Busy time right now! Eric is back at the grad school grind. Unlike last summer, his class this summer is a full semester, meaning he is in class until the middle of August. It sort of messes the summer up, but that is okay. If people want to see us they will have to come here :) We have had all kinds of visitors in the last few weeks. Teresa, Mary, Ed, Irma, and my folks all spent some time here to celebrate Alex's first birthday.

I took my Mom to see a live taping of Prairie Home Companion at the Fabulous Fox for her birthday/Mother's Day present. What a unique experience!!

It has been raining almost daily here since the end of May. It has been raining so much that our lawn cannot get mowed in a timely manner. In the middle of all these storms, Tuesday the 2nd, we lost the tree in front of our house. It fell over and landed on the roof of the porch and was resting on the office window. Why it didn't come through the window I don't know, since it really should have. There is some damage to a few shingles and the flashing around all of the windows in the front of the house. Hopefully in the next couple of weeks we will find someone to do the work and fix things. So for now, there is a stump in front that just looks sad...I am going to replace it with something 'dwarf' so we won't have this problem again.

Alex is cruising around the furniture with ease. He has two different push toys that he pushes around the living room. I am hoping by the end of the month that he will be taking a few steps, since he has been standing since Easter. He still goes to PT, but now every three weeks. His therapist thinks he is getting ready to be finished. She did determine that he will not have 100% range of motion on both sides of his neck, but it will be close. He bumped up Gymboree classes about a month and a half ago and enjoys being around the other kids. He still is the only kid in the class that stays under the parachute during parachute time, all the others run away. I think that is his favorite part!
