I'm so woefully behind on blogging with no hope of catching up so we'll just move forward from here and perhaps have some reflections later on. In a nutshell, it's been a crazy few months, beginning with a rough start to the school year for Lucas, followed by Ian's surgery on Sept. 6. We thought the worst was over when Ian was finally out of the serial casts but it seems, the worst was yet to come. He had, and sometimes still has, terrible muscle spasms that cause lots of discomfort and keep him (and us) awake at night.
However, God is merciful and Lucas is doing better on most days and Ian continues to make improvement, thanks to massive amounts of physical therapy. Jeremy is doing very well, too.
So, we are enjoying this time of year when we especially celebrate Jesus and we might have even started a new tradition - gingerbread village building! Everyone loved it but we had to do it as fast as possible to keep the boys from eating all the candy before it was on the buildings!
