Pool Boy

I can't believe how fast time is going, it's almost July 4th and summer will be half over! As hard as that is to swallow, I have to admit that I will like having Ethan back in school in the fall. I'm super spoiled, I know. However, one of my friends has 4 children and her husband spent some time with Ethan and told me that he's really 4 kids wrapped up into 1. Just saying. 

Our therapy schedule is really laid back this summer, which is fine by us both. Ethan could use some time to just be a kid and I could use a break from all the shuttling. He really technically should be in all of his therapies once a week, but it's not happening and I've accepted that it's not the end of the world for him to slow it down. 

He is doing really well lately. He can now use those pedals, but he usually opts to use his feet on the ground since it's much faster. He does pedal for grandparents though! He is still impossible to reason with on even the most infantile level, and that coupled with his explosive temper has been a real treat lately. Rich is out of town except weekends so I've been hiring a sitter here and there to keep myself sane. Even with the tantrums he continues to make progress and I have to give him credit where it's due. Little guy is one tough cookie. 

Not much else to report, we're just kicking back and enjoying our new place during this beautiful season.
