One foot in front of the other

We find ourselves in that 'if it's not one thing, it's another' stage...again.  Weren't we here just weeks ago?  And that 'stage' lasted for a month solid, only to be 'broken' up by two or more months of this cough thing?  Thankfully most of us are over the cough thing.  Anyone else had it?  Lasts for 6 to 8 weeks?  But we are back to stuff coming up almost daily.

My camera lens decided it was broke.  My oven decided to poop out on me.  The new-to-us printer decided to have issues, right when I needed it.  Thankfully most of those are fixed or soon to be fixed.  Jeremiah was able to speak to someone about our heating issue, and they will be here this week to check our system out.

Although we are not in a good rythm yet, we are staying on top of the house and getting to the basics of schooling.  This week we will be adding in Jed's speech therapy, which I am very excited about.  I have made our schedule up with sticky notes so that things could be adjusted once we have all of our weekly going ons in place.

We have a very busy week ahead of us.  I am frustrated by all the things that keep coming up, but also thankful that we are still making progress.  One such area is Isabella's homepathic care.  Isabella is very, VERY sensitive to the remedies.  It is so difficult because we know healing is happening, evidenced when she went off her remedies for a few weeks.  She saw amazing, amazing health.  Things started to slide backwards, as expected.  She was excited and scared to start back on the remedies.  Excited because she knows it is working, but scared because the sensitivities make things worse in the meantime.  We are working hard to find the right dosage for her.  Finding the right dose will bring her to a state of experiencing health, a state of increasing improvements, all while her body is truly healing, and not just covering up her symptoms.  We have adjusted her treatment this week, but it will be a few days before we see if this dosage level will be the ticket.

Making up her remedies takes incredible mental energy on my part.  I am guessing it is overwhelming to me because I feel overloaded as it is, but really it's not a big deal, I just have to mentally prepare myself to do it!  Anyone not familiar with homeopathy, or this specific practitioner's ways may find it mind boggling.  All I know is that the window of healing I saw in Isabella is totally, totally worth any mental overload I feel when I go to make her remedies.  Seriously, she is a different child! Able to do things she has not been able to do in a year.  So, sooooo worth it!

I have a picture, from my phone of all her dosage cups made up, but I can't get it into blogger.  I'll have to try again later.

Swimming in the Chaos

I actually picked up my camera today!  It's been months.  It has been a very wet and great past 12 days.  Apparently we broke an 1880-something record, with 12 consecutive days of rain.  Thankfully we've had a couple of breaks of sun here and there, but I was beginning to have waking nightmares of a movie I saw as a preteen.  For some reason this movie seems like a nightmare to me.  Don't remember the name of it.  But the idea was that these people lived either on Earth, or some other planet that had rain 24/7, 364 days a year.  One day a year the rain stops and the sum comes out.  There was a school class that was making all these plans on how they were going to spend their sunny day.  But the day of the sun, one of the students get locked in a closet, missing the only sunny day of the year.  I was so depressed after that movie!  Anywas, day 12 of rain it is.

Here are just a couple of pictures.  Isabella was giving pony rides to the boys.  I didn't get out there in time to take pictures of them riding, but Flannery got everything on video.  Maybe I'll post a short video once Bella uploads it from her camera.

 Aubrey still sporting the riding helmet.  He fell off the pony a few times, but he's our fearless one.

 Merida looked so cute in this sweater with her hood up.  All my other girls hated hats and hoods, but she seems to like it.

 Jonah being a nice big brother helping her with her shoes.  Look how she is holding on to his shoulder.  Aaaww/

Jonah asked me if I would take some pictures of him.  I took three, and in all of them he has a very serious face.  But my golly, he looks so old here!  Where is my seven year old?
