This will be our concreted slab for roller skates, basketball, sidewalk chalk, etc. It is on the East side of the house. This week will bring plumbers, the flooring will go down, and the walls will start to go up. Its moving fast, now!

“I just can’t do it, mom. I’ll fall off!” is what came out of Maysen’s mouth as I looked into his terrified eyes when he learned his Training Wheels were coming off. I reassured him that we’d be right there and that daddy wouldn’t let go until he said so. He whimpered as he bravely climbed up, looking back multiple times to make sure his security blanket was still there.
“Push real hard with your legs, buddy,” Nate said and with wobbly legs he pedaled forward. Within literally 5 seconds Nate just let go and away he went. I yelled, “You’re doing it buddy!” and he looked over with shock. Insecurity set in and down he gingerly went but got right back up exclaiming, “MOM! I did it! Did you see!?” I could only smile as I thought, “Did I ever, buddy. Did I ever.…”

Shallum is building the fence to where this 30yr old oak tree is in our backyard!
this is our neighborhood view from the front door.
This next week is going to be another full week for me. I'm doing Triage Monday-Wednesday and then Friday Jenn will be in town to come with me to mom's follow-up with her neurologist. I'm excited to talk to him about the new FDA-approved drug, Ampyra, which has a pretty good success rate of improving ambulation (walking). That would be so great for mom.
I think I'll go take a nap before the marathon of football known as Superbowl starts .... I'm already excited, can you tell?
