House hunting?

YES,That's right we're house hunting!We are hoping to find a lovely little place with a bit of land to call our li'homestead!We have a few that are at the top of our lists now,and waiting on application with first time homebuyers and rural developement to result in our certificate for us to be able to make a bid.We want to be as self sufficient as possible.We'd like to have a few chickens for eggs and such,and ofcourse a lovely garden to give us an abundant of fresh herbs & veggies. I found a lovely organic apple orchard this weekend,and am hoping to plant a couple pretty harty type trees on out land when we get it!Say does anyone know if we can grow lemon trees in Maine? Whenevr I see lovely fruit trees in bloom that PPM song jumps into my brain,"Lemon Tree" I've just gotta have one so I can sing it every morning!We can picture it all dogs romping with the kids and chasing chickens around the yard as mum works the garden,while papa and Dman chop and stack the wood!Quiet evenings around the fire pit swinging or gliding watching the stars from our own yard!Not sure life could get much better,unless there was the soft sound of horses chewing and nickering in the pasture and the soft lowing of a Scottish highland or two along side them! Ahhh,yes still ever the dreamer!Wish us luck and keep us in your prayers!

sensory evaluations!

Hello all,it's been awhile again.We brought the boys last wednesday in for their formal eval for a sensory dx. Looks good for them to get to go to the clinic during the summer for one-on-one time with an OT of their own.Meaning each will have their own OT!YAY,for them!They'll both get what they need now.I'm so very thankful for Diane for getting us on the right track!The lil'guy goes this wednesday for his eval,and in June the oldest goes.They would really like to see the big guy as it sounds to them as though he was a missed sensory kid.Well all I can say is if it helps get him back on track I'm all for it.I know he's very frustrated with how school is going.

The boys start kindergarten next year,and I'm hoping to have everything in place to make the transition easy and the year go well for them.I don't want to have to battle with the school system for another 9-12 yrs.The boys are very happy that school is over for the summer,and looking forward to having play days with their best-bud from class.We'll be looking into summer day camp again hoping to get them in with kids from last summer to make that transition easier.We're looking forward to camping this year,hoping our cousin will come with his family and getting in some good hiking,biking and of course some fun letter boxing!
