Is there a seal in the house

At night, I swear you would think there were seals in my kid's bedroom. It started with Jared on Saturday night, I ended up taking him to urgent care on Sunday afternoon and found out that not only does he have croup, but he has strep throat as well. After one day of having the cool mist humidifier in his room, Allison started, so the humidifier has been moved. You would think that the 1 year old would have gotten the croup, but no,it is my almost 8 year old and 6 year old( go figure). Hopefully Spring is fast approaching and we will be over this stuff soon, one can only hope.

Update on the Krull Kids

It has been awhile since I posted something, not because nothing has been happening but because life is getting in the way. So I will try to give you a short summary of life with the Krull kids.

Jared is doing great!! He has made fantastic progress in reading. It is so great to hear him read. He just got his report card and we are so pleased. It was great to hear that he has a positive attitude towards learning(let's see if that is the way he feels in a few years)

Allison is also doing great. She loves school and works hard. It was great to read on her report card that she is at grade level. She recognized 52/52 letters. She knew 24/31 sounds(I think this is pretty good for a kid who is deaf). She was also able to recognize 25/32 sight words.

We are a bit concern that she is still not progressing with her new implant. We may have to take her for another CT Scan in the summer to see if there is a problem with the placement of the implant. She will see her audiologist in April, so we will have more information then.

Jordan is such a happy little boy. He is learning something new each day. His latest accomplishment is being able to point to his nose, belly, eye and head. He is high energy and I go to bed exhausted each night, but would not change it for the world.
