Conor has begun his Speech therapy! Twice a week he gets to work with a therapist and he loves it. Someone that comes over just to play with him! He is talking more and more every day it seems, and we hear a lot less of the 'uh-uh-uh' that we were growing so tired of. Though he usually only puts 2 or 3 words together, he does have one really catchy phrase that he will say whenever prompted with, "Conor, you need to obey." He'll say, "We obey right away!" and it's so cute! He sounds like he has some sort of accent when he says it. I'll try to record it.
One of his favorite activities at home with me, or with his therapist, is the Mr. Potato Head. He got one for Christmas, complete with 40 accessories. He knows right where they all go. Sometimes he builds really good Mr. Potato Heads,
And sometimes he is the Potato Head, but that's got to be considered 'higher-order thinking', right, and not something to worry about? (When I found him, he had the little ears sticking into his ears too, but I made him take those out for safety's sake.)
I am loving my classes, though I have tons of reading to do today. Must finish The Eumenides
and get started in The Republic. What a great feeling it is to go to class and be on top of things. I would be in huge trouble otherwise.
I have felt strong promptings to get our "Preparedness House" in order, so to speak. No matter where you live in the country, these are uncertain times. Our prophets have been counseling us for decades for such a time as this, and even more fervently now. I am doing all I can at this point, and am anxious for the ability to do more. My focus this year has been on our 72 hour kits, both personal and family, and our water and food storage. I want to post more about that another time. Everyone would do well to take care of their family's needs in this manner.
We finished the Psalms the Bible over the weekend. It's a lot of fun to read the psalms out loud, as my dad once suggested I do years ago. Especially as I prepared for and worried over the court hearing last month, what strength it brought me to praise the Lord in the words of those poetic hymns. Now we are working our way through the Proverbs. A perfect way to start the day.
