It's been awhile

The above picture has nothing to do with anything ... I just feel bad posting without a picture of the boy (but in case you're curious, he was showing me his Orange TicTacs).

We have been busy. I'm finally healthy again. Mom and I went to Atlanta to Market last week. It was the quickest we've ever done it. We were only gone two nights. But we got some cool stuff.

Allen totally rocks. He's taken to calling his great grandmothers the "old girls." They love it. They came for dinner tonight (along with Nana and Papa), and Allen was in heaven. He loves his Gramma and Gigi.

Allen's been listening to the Bible Stories in the car lately. I think he's really benefiting. He's calling them to mind very easily, and bringing them up in conversation. We're very proud. Now if only he would put into practice what he's learning (we're still having a hard time obeying Mom & Dad).

Mom and Dad (me and Brian) are a little stressed out lately. A situation at Allen's school has come to our attention, and we're not happy with the way it's been handled. I'm meeting with the Director of the school tomorrow. I'm nervous ... I hope I can firmly express our stand.

I guess that's all for now. I'll let you know how things go tomorrow. And I'll try to get some more pics and stories together this week.

I'd love to see a picture of Allen with "the old girls"; he interacts so beautifully with adults that I know it would be a great picture.

I can't wait to see the market stuff either! :D
Seeing what happens with the school will be interesting...keep us updated!

I was gonna comment...but we've already talked and I'll see you tomorrow, anyway.

Oooh! I remembered what I wanted to say when I say nothing at all. Allen's Auntie Amelia loves, I mean really LOVES, orange tic tacs!

Late to the party. He's a cutie. I understand about the obeying part...I mean I understand about it happening, not understanding why it happens. If I ever figure that out, I'll let you know. Anxious to hear an update about your school meeting.
