international day

just some shots of the day and some friends…





It was just a normal day for us.  school and work and hospital visits to see if my letter was ready, it wasn’t!!

Dinner was fancier but luka still ate in his underpants!!!  And there was pudding/dessert!!!

Up and down

Wow!!  it’s been a long week and it’s only Wednesday!!!  it’s building up the heat again after some showers.   anxiety about going home is coming.   luka’s stutter has returned.  sadly.  plus luka invited 2 friends to come to America with us so I have make sure that the kids know that they can’t come!!!

And now the pictures. Number one. Don’t you love it when someone loves on your kid as much as you love your kid and points out a nice positive things about your kid so that you can point them out to your kid so that he feels kind of love. Number 2. School uniform at the end of art day covered in paint and splashes when I asked Lucas about it he remarked that they were making ice cream cones in art class I have absolutely no idea really what they were doing butt that’s what he told me. Number 3. Is that not the scariest picture you’ve seen of my kid in a while? Rob and I have notice the garage and the airport have been down from the Shelf when we leave Lucas slightly unattended IE movie go take a shower or we run outside. So today after he had gotten the garage down but we were tidying up I asked him to put the garage back up and he said that he can’t carry it up there he needs two hands so I asked him to show me how he gets the garage down….. huge mistake yeah. At dinner tonight Rob and I discussed safety and how that was not very safe. Number 4 this is an art project, why do we need to do art projects???

we all need a break, sometimes

the stutter is back in full force.  it went away for a bit but has returned.  i’ve just noticed that it has increased since we returned to san.di for services.  i don’t know if they help or harm or if it’s just over-scheduling.  probably a mix of all 3.  and he wants to be cat.boy.

i’m starting to get lots of referrals for serivces, myself.  hmmmm, i just need to find a place to practice.  i’ve always been apart of a TEAM and honestly, just a bit scared of being out there by myself.  hmmmm, lots to think about in the next 5 weeks plus the MofH is slowwww in approving my work at the hospital.

however, poppy is moving into his new building.  it’s gonna be great. he can’t wait get to everything squared away, clean and organized.

we love to stay in bed until 7 am.

sunrise is at 440ish now.  thankfully, L has blackout curtains but that still only buys us (and by us, i mean rob) 5 something.  on a good day it’s 540ish but it’s usually within 5 min +/- of 530.  which is early.  very early.

my thesis is stalled ….

i’m stuck.

amy is coming this week after T Day.  or maybe next week.

i need to figure out poppy’s birthday.

i hope that he has booked my birthday.

L is VERY EXCITED about santa.  we’ll have to go see him a few times while we’re home.

and i cant’ keep track of how many times a day i saw don’t hold your peni.s!!!!!  sooo ready for this stage to pass.

Moving on…


The top photo is the new building.  the bottom is tidzwe, the current building.  currently, Rob has labs all around town.  this while allow him to consolidate some labs but not really.  but it does double the space that u.n.c. does have at the hospital.  which is kinda awesome.
