Happy Anniversary to US!

Seven years ago today, I became the luckiest woman alive and married the man of dreams. We had a picture perfect wedding and blissful honeymoon! Since then we have moved 5 times, had 2 beautiful, amazing girls, had 4 dogs, 1 cat, 6 foster children, had 6 cars, three emergency room visits, and a thousand little every day moments that are each special and treasures all of their own.
Being apart on our anniversary has NOT been easy. My poor husband spent the entire day from 4 a.m till 6 p.m. wet and cold. No hot meals etc. I am not there to make a bad day any better. It makes me SO thankful for cell phones and internet. I am also thankful that we only have 10 days left till we see each other again.
On a totally separate note, school went well for both girls today. The youngest still has not spoken at preschool. Big sigh. The oldest loves home-schooling and appears to be thriving. I got some pencils and a sharpener the other day. The girls took all 20 pencils and erasers to the table and were setting them up and making them go on a parade! It was cute and reminds why we so limit the amount of TV they watch. Then at dinner, I had made them some popcorn shrimp. The youngest closed her eyes and flapped her arms. I asked what she was doing and here is what she said, "These rainbowy shrimp are my batteries and every time I eat one I can fly high and fast but when I swallow I go low and slow and have to eat another battery to keep going!" Now, that is a neat way to eat your dinner! =)

ten days is almost only a week, and a week is really only about 5 days, and 5 days is such a short time that it might as well be overnight, so ... really ... it's almost like you're going tomorrow. :)

When did oldest's selective mutism symptoms begin? Youngest has always seemed so bold in public, and I'm trying to remember if oldest did also?
