It's been a little while...
So I have not posted anything for a while. Sorry about that but we have been pretty busy. So let me catch you up. Well first there was Christmas. It was so great we had the wonderful opportunity to have both sides of our families here. Well almost all the families. Brent's brother Drew, his wife Maja, my brother Stephen, his wife Eliz, Natalie and Jacob all got stuck in the freak snow storm in Oregon. We were very sad to not have them with but we where so happy to have the rest of the family here. We had a wonderful time with everyone. It was a great visit and we felt so blessed to be with everyone.
Next came New Years Eve... Well this will be short because we really didn't have much of a New Years Eve. We were both really tired so we stayed in. THE END...
Lets see what else... Well Brent has started working with IBI kiddos. He has one client now that he is working with a couple times a week. He is still working full time as a Developmental Specialist. He is enjoying his job.
The pups are doing well. Ruby went on an 8 miler the other day with me. She is a trooper. She loves to run and play so it is good to have her get out there with me.
Jackson on the other hand is not doing so well. We took him to the vet for his limp and found out that he has some floating cartilage in his right shoulder. He is going to have to have surgery soon in order for him to be able to not limp anymore. The vet suggested that we have the other shoulder x-ray to see if it had the same issue. We are not sure when this is going to happen. We want him to have a normal life but the surgery is very expensive so we have to see if insurance will cover it. I will give an update soon on what we decide to do.
I have started school again... It is going to be a VERY LONG 13 weeks. I have about double credits at school so I am full time and a half... I am taking Human Behavior in the Social Environment II, Communities & Organizations, Intro to research II, Field Placement, and Field Seminar. I am really enjoying the classes so far. The reading is a lot more this semester. I also started my field placement two weeks ago. I am working for a Home Health and Hospice agency in Nampa. It has been a very interesting experience so far. I think that I am going to like it as long as I don't get attached. I am still working for UnBefuddled. I still have about 15 cases and I am hoping to keep up with it until the semester is over. It will be ruff but I bet I can do it! I will also give another update about school in a little while.
Well that is about all for us. I hope everyone is doing well. We would love to hear from any of you!
