Dusting off the blog

I started this blog a couple of years ago so that family could keep up with what was going on in our lives. I didn't do a very good job with it and only ever had two posts. I'm going to try to dust it off and keep it updated.

Maura is now 5 1/2. She's in her second year of preschool and she'll start Kindergarten in August. She's as smart as a whip and has the attitude to go with it. She is smart and sassy at the same time. She's an awesome big sister to Ryan. She is so sensitive to his needs. She is such a beautiful girl too. She looks like I highlight her hair. It's light brown with blonde streaks in it.

Ryan is almost 3. Where oh where does the time go. We're now 3 months out from his Autism Spectrum Diagnosis. We're almost completely set up with all of his services. He had Speech Therapy on Monday afternoons for an hour, Occupational Therapy on Wednesday afternoons for an hour and Special Instruction for an hour on Friday afternoons. Right now we had a Behavioral Support Consultant here a few hours a week working out a treatment plan for him. Starting in the middle of February we will have a Therapeutic Support Specialist (TSS) here 10 hours a week to work with him on his behaviors at home and in the community.

Obviously things are going to be crazy busy here. Ryan is also going to need some dental work done and they will be sedating him for that. He has two cavities and a broken tooth that all need worked on. We're not sure when this will be but I'm hoping they will get it scheduled soon.

I'll try to keep up with this blog a little better even if it's just to post the funny things that my kids say.
