Just an update...

I am sorry it has been such a long time since I posted. I just haven't felt like we have done anything noteworthy of late.

We spent Labor Day Weekend with Pete's mom, that was fun. We went to Jackson Hole and Yellowstone. The boys liked that and I have some pictures posted on facebook.

Today my brother, Ethan and I took Wyatt and old rusty up to Foster's potato fields and filled up 11 bags. It was some tough stuff and I am glad I had Ethan's muscles to pack them all. lol

Pete has had ups and downs. He says he feels disconected and can't explain. So we have our DI adventures. I found six of the Work and the Glory books so far. It has been fun. I also found another cute Nativity for my collection. I would love to have my own place and space, but it has been nice to have help for the boys.

LOL I am so tired of canning already and we have tomatoes still to do... We ripped them out of the garden last sunday due to the frost that was coming that night.

Otherwise I think we are good. Just wanted to update.

Starting to get things figured out.

Went to health and welfare yesterday. I had a question about my benefits, anyway.... While I was there they told me if we had a letter proving he couldn't work and therefore unable to draw unemployment, I could get Pete on Medicaid. We already had the letter in the works so this was good news. He found out also that he would get a break on child support while he isn't working, I also found out that Jackson's optical is covered. His teacher called me the other day and told me he was having trouble seeing the board. We realized then after our own observations, that he was squinting at times to see the TV. I know now why he sits so close. Poor baby, I know how hard it is when you can't see.

The teacher also tried to convince me he was mildly autistic. Its funny none of his doctors, or previous teachers, or speech therapists ever seemed to think that about him. So who knows why she thinks this.

Wyatt has gotten into such tantrums lately. He is usually so sweet, gentle, and helpful. Then, if I tell him he can't have something he wants its like Jekyll and Hyde. What do I do with that kid? lol

Pete's mom is coming for a visit this weekend, it will be nice to see her and the boys miss her and John a whole bunch. I really appreciate having family to lean on but I sure do miss having my own place.
