So, this morning I find myself at the end of another week, wondering what I managed to accomplish, and what exciting things happened. So, here's my recap of the week:
-I won't include all the boring errands, housework, running boys around all over the map
- Cameron was accepted into the Halton Junior Jazz Band again for the school year. He was very excited to show me the paper telling us that he would be playing 1st trumpet this year. Needless to say, he has been practising the new pieces quite hard to prepare for their first rehersal on Tuesday of next week. I really wish I had taken a picture of the look on his face and how he was beaming with pride! We're so proud of him too.
-Cameron and I attended another training session this week on his lap top. This time we learned Dragon Speak. This will be the main software that he will be using. He did voice training with it, and now he can just speak into the head set and the computer will type his words and follow his commands (Ok, not all his commands, but you know what I mean.) Facinating!! I'm always astounded at the assistive technology out there.
-We have organized the first scrapbooking day at our Church. Once a month we will be hosting a day. There are some ladies who are wanting to begin so I will be doing some beginner classes.
-Matt has been struggling the last couple of weeks with the work load at school. He has some overdue assignments and a couple of tests to make up. Fortunately he has a reading week next week so he will be using that time to get all caught up again.
-we finally ordered our new front door. For those who don't remember, we had a break-in last March. They kicked through the front door damaging the door frame. As a result, the whole door/side light system has to be replaced. It took us a while to decide, but I'm very exctied about what we finally decided on.
This is what it will look like, but just one side light.
Unfortunately its about an 8 week wait until install so it won't be in in time for Christmas.
-we have a free day today. Yay! I actually managed to sleep in until 9:30. All those 6 a.m. mornings are catching up with me.
