Day 225, Monday, August 13, 2012

Today we met with an emergency psychiatrist through Network 180.  We needed a prescription for one of Simeon's meds that is pretty heavy duty.  He needs weekly blood draws to be sure that the meds are not harming him.

Later the Place Family moved in for 10 days to babysit so we could take the 7 of us on vacation while they did child care for Cody, Simeon, and Meika.  We were all on pins and needles over leaving Simeon home, but the Places were willing to give it a go.

Day 223, Saturday, August 11, 2012

Simeon's first full day at home again.

Rosie and Bonnie returned from their Bangla Bible Camp missions trip.  Very thankful that they arrived safe and sound.

Later we heard that the DeCook family were hit by a drunk driver on their way home, and although thankfully no one was killed, they received serious injuries.

Day 222, Friday, August 10, 2012

Today we had to go to Hawthorn Psychiatric Hospital in Northville to pick Simeon up as he was discharged today.  It was an uneventful trip home, and he seemed glad to be back with family.  He desperately needs a haircut---I had asked them to get his hair cut a couple of times, but it never happened.  He was there for 3 1/2 months.

Day 221, Thursday, August 9, 2012

Today was Sam's first time to show his rabbit at Fair.  He is an official Explorer (aka Cloverbud) in 4H this year!  He did quite well!

It was a busy day as I also had a dental appointment and Cheryl, Kaitie and I toured the Life Skills program that we were considering (and ruled out) for Kaitie.

Kaitie danced her last time at Fair!  She choreographed her own routine, and got an outstanding ribbon.  I thought this was her best ever solo!  Pictures to follow!

Day 218, Monday August 6, 2012

Today is the first day of the Kent County Youth Fair.  Our club booth banner is in the booth already!!!  Mahree and Merica have rabbit breed judging and Mahree has cavy breed judging and showmanship.  Mahree also was supposed to be in the fashion show and model her outfit, but we forgot to get her modeling narration card in on Saturday.  They would have made an exception, but Mahree decided to opt out anyway with the bunny barn activities.
