One Week Until Our Lives Take Another Turn!






Well, here we go again. Another life changing event. The kids are starting school on Monday the 24th. God has worked out every step. Peepers got a last minute call from the Fine Arts Academy where they had one spot left. She scored a 91 in Math and a 98 on Reading on her placement tests!!! She will be starting 6th grade in a much smaller school that sounds like an easier transition for her. Carrot Top and Pistol will be going to the same school. Pistol scored a 83 in Math and a 96 in Reading. Praise God. We prayed over his Reading for days.(It is his weakest subject)Then the coolest thing is Weyni's school. It is a International school for first year immigrants. All the classes are taught with ESL curriculum. They also help the students get acclimated to American culture.

Catfish is doing great. The helmet has taken a little getting used to. He has to wear it 23 hours a day. The neurosurgeon said he may get to take it off as early as 6 months. We just don't have any way of knowing. He is absolutely precious. He has the biggest smile, and the worst temper! We are so amazed at this journey God has put us on the last couple of years. I am thankful for the wisdom and humility He has given us through it. Well its another long day. Here are a few pics from the last couple of weeks.

Hi Dominique,
I have been following your journey for a while and it is truly amazing how God has blessed your family. I have a question about the international school...can you email or call me?

Thanks,

We have a little helmet head in our house too! :) His head is really shaping nicely and we only have about 5 weeks left - thank goodness. I'm about ready to run it over with my car. ha.

Happy to hear ALL the exciting reports on how well you all are doing. Praise God for the test scores, the new schools, the temper even (as it means he is a fighter...in a good way!)

Praying for you sweet friend. May God's blessings overflow from your lives.
