Orchestra Treat!

It is 10:49pm and I am just now for the first time today sitting down! All of the kids are finally in bed, computer in my lap, American Idol on the TV and I for see a bowl of ice cream in the future! Would it be horrible if I told you that would be the second bowl today! LOL

We started therapy at 8am with speech. It was a great start to the day! Makenzie worked on her colors and then she started making 2 color patterns! WOW!!! She colored a butterfly on the computer. Her therapists is going to print it out and bring it next week! Go Makenzie!

PT and OT was also great! They got her rib cage to move with some rotation which is really great! She was so happy and loose when they were done!

I had 35 minutes to run to Target, get a script, return and item, grab Makenzie some lunch, and get my oldest black pants and a white shirt for his orchestra concert. I made it and was only 4 minutes late!

When we got home Makenzie's feeding therapist was waiting. Turns out I didn't need to get lunch because Lyn had brought Fazoli's. Makenzie ate spaghetti, a bit of a bread stick, cheesecake, and a few sips of my cherry coke. She did great! It still amazes me that she is making so much progress with eating!

Ok now it was back into the car to bring Zach's clothes to school and then back home.

Zach's concert didn't start until 7:30pm so I started Makenzie's feed and put her in bed for a VERY rare nap! She slept GREAT! It is a good thing she did because we didn't get home until 9:30pm. Bedtime for Makenzie is normally 6pm!

Mommy spent the duration of the said nap cleaning up so that there would be less to do tonight.

I got Makenzie up after napping for over 2 hours and into the bath, dinner, and back into the car for an orchestra concert treat!

Zach's concert was amazing! I wasn't sure if he would like playing an instrument but he LOVES it! He is really good and I am SO VERY proud of my son! Here is a short video of 450 kids playing in this orchestra composed out of middle school kids from 9 different schools! They all did so great!

The night was not over yet though,there is always a trip to Dairy Queen after stuff like this in our family.

I am sure this whole post was TMI but it was my day and right now I am too tired to be witty and creative. I am just glad it is done! There were only a few things that I should have done today that didn't get taken care of but such is life!

Stem Cells are less then 2 months away away! KEEP PRAYING!!!
