Summer has officially started

Even though school was finished on June 1st Cormac received his Teacher of the Deaf services through today. While I am thrilled to be done for the summer, I am a little scared of Cormac not receiving any services over the summer. I am pretty sure he wil be fine but this is the first time EVER he has not been getting services. Honestly, I think the break will be nice for him. It's not like I will suddenly stop teaching him. I will continue to do what I do and thanks to his teacher will have some activites to work with him. We will resume the same schedule in the fall for his last year of preschool. We are very pleased with the outcome with our district and are glad we can continue in the his preschool with some support services from a Teacher of the Deaf.

We are quickly approaching Cormac's THREE YEAR hearing anniversary. I cannot even believe it. We will celebrate once again with cake. Always need a reason to make a yummy cake. Three years??? Really?? How is it possible? How on earth are these boys four? How on earth is Calleigh one? When did it happen?

I really try and make sure I spend as much time as possible with these precious kids because before long they will be too grown up for their Mama. But I honestly feel sometimes there is just NOT ENOUGH TIME! Yes, I try and focus on them and have the philosphy that the laundry can wait, as long as the house is presentable I am ok with it. But at some point I have to do other things and I really wish I didn't have to do them. I wish I could just postpone it ALL until they were teenagers and we sick of me :) I want my kids to look back and remember all the fun times we had, the exciting things we did and how much they are truly loved.

I hope I am able to achieve those goals. Only time will tell!

You will have plenty of language opportunities this Summer. You are a great model for Cormac (and so are his brothers) and he will learn a lot, I am sure. Make a bunch of experience books about fun things you all do together and create conversations from that! Easy! :)
