New Technology

YIKES! I am being drug kickin' and screamin' into using technology more. I rarely am able to go to a library to use the computer, so in order to be able to post to the blog more often, I have set it up to be able to update it through text messages from my cell phone. I now have the email address also so I can email from my phone posts. My hope is that this will make it easier for me to send updates more often.

We are doing well. The cold weather has been a challenge, but we are doing good. Abigail is preschooling at home. She asks me most days if she can "do school" with me. She is currently learning to write her letters and numbers. Micah is making great progress. In September, he could only do baby-babbling and was not saying words. Working on his speech daily, he is now able to say about 7 words. He is still having to learn to make connections between some of the words and their meaning, but the progress is being made. He is also looking at people in the eyes and maintaining eye contact.

I started my sweet potatoes soaking in water to grow the slips for spring planting. I am looking forward to getting the garden going. It will be nice to go out to the garden to gather salad greens and such for our meals.
