Just Another Saturday

Actually, it's not just another Saturday. My daughter is 2000 miles away, settling into her new life. But, from what I hear ... so far, so good. Hilary's roommate doesn't arrive for another week - she isn't attending the special orientation that Hilary and most of the deaf/hoh kids are attending (although Hilary's roommate is deaf and is a cochlear implant user). Mark told me that it's a good thing they know some sign language because most the staff they've encountered so far are signers. I guess there was a reason he went instead of me - Mark has always been more adept at (and comfortable with) signing than I am.

Hilary's new "home" for the next nine months

All moved in

Computer is up and running .... life is good


As Jack and I were enjoying his morning routine, I decided to pull out my old camera (thus the reason it's so grainy) and take a video of clip to share what a typical Saturday morning is like in our house. The only thing missing is Eric, he's usually buzzing around the room like a gnat. (I'm not sure where he was when this was taken.)

Sorry for the delay between posts. You can blame it on Facebook. It's quicker, easier and more fun to update! I'll try to be better and make it worth your time to click on over to Jack's blog. Thanks for checking in and have a great day!
