I'm Still Here

I have been very neglectful of my blog lately and I really don't have any other reason for this but..........LIFE. 

Life has been very busy in the Krull household.  Jared, Allison and this year Jordan started school in Aug.  We have had a good start to the school year, notice I said good, not great.  Jared has had a few issues with being in 5th grade, mostly the workload and taking responsibility for his own actions.  He has had to learn the hard way and yes it was a tough lesson to learn, but I think we have him back on track.  Allison has adjusted well to 4th grade and still loves school.  Jordan is doing great in K.  I am enjoying teaching him at home this year and he seems to enjoy having mommy's undivided attention once again. 

It is time to start thinking about basketball season again.  Jared loves playing, so we will see if he can keep up with his schoolwork well enough to play again this year. 

Allison continues to amaze us with how well she is doing with her CI's.   You would think that after 8 years, it would just be common place, but it still brings tears to my eyes when I think how far she has come.  This past Sunday, on the way to church, Allison was reading a book to Jordan and Bill turned to me and said..."did you think 8 years ago, that Allison would be reading a book to her brother?"  She was not only reading, but doing the different voices of the characters.  I think I actually saw a tear in Bill's eye as he was asking me this.

Allison and Jordan both had birthdays in Sept.  Allison turned 10 and Jordan turned 5.  We celebrated with 25 of their closest friends and family at World of Bounce.  It is a huge indoor bounce house.  They had a blast and I enjoyed the fact that I did not have to set up or clean up.  I made 48 cupcakes, bought juice boxes and ordered pizza, the rest was done for us

All 3 of the kids are involved in AWANA at our church.  AWANA is a weekly Bible club.  They are really enjoying being a part of it.  We chose in the past not to be involved due to Jared and Allison's school schedule, but this year we decided to give it a shot.  So far, so good.  The kids are keeping up with their schoolwork and are not fighting me too bad on Tues mornings when it is time to get up for school.  Hopefully that trend with continue.

Jared head to the oral surgeon on Oct 26th to get his missing tooth cared for.  Hopefully this will be an easy surgery and not a complicated one.  They think he has and extra tooth that is blocking his front tooth from coming down.  They should be able to go in and removed the extra one, open up his gums and put a "button" and chain on the front tooth so the orthodontist can pull it into place.  There is a chance that the extra tooth could be high up in the gums, if that is the case it may be more involved than originally thought.  We are praying for easy.  If you think of it.....say a prayer for Jared.

Reading some of your story brings tears to my eyes. I have a deaf daughter who is 2 1/2 years old and recently diagnosed. Her first CI surgery is scheduled for next Monday!
