After yesterday we don't have a whole lot to tell. I did speak to "the man" today just to let him know that we are here and counting on him to keep his Friday deadline. He is very cordial on the phone but that is no indication. We will see.
Otherwise it was a fairly slow day today. We played Yatzee. Kerwin enjoyed it but got bored near the end of the game. It was a good introduction though. Lawanna gave the kids big bubble wands today that one of the adoptive parents sent in. They were really neat and Kerwin is still having fun blowing bubbles. We watched
"Night at the Museum" with Kerwin this afternoon for some down time. He likes this one we just have to start it about 20 minutes into the movie when all the action starts. He washed the dishes again this morning. He still thinks it's great and we make a big deal out of him being a "good helper." He also enjoys tying Mike's shoes. He can actually tie shoes pretty well but his shoes don't have ties so he doesn't get to do it very often. I brought water shoes for him because he cannot (or at least he couldn't) wear regular shoes and still walk because of the contractures in his legs. He went barefoot all the time or else he couldn't walk. He may be able to try some other shoes soon, his legs are continuing to develop and get stronger. He used to always drag one foot behind when he walks. Now he is able to lift his toes just far enough off the ground not to touch it. Also, when he sits down on the bed to put on his shoes or socks. Before he always had to use his hands to pick his leg up and put his foot on the bed. But the other day I was watching him and noticed that he could now lift his foot all the way up to the bed without using his hands.
We went to the market today with Lawanna to get some essentials. We are planning on going to the hotel tomorrow if we can get a ride. That shouldn't be a problem as there are folks coming in tomorrow and they will need to be picked up at the airport. The airport is very close to the hotel. Barb has not arrived yet and it's 6:20. We are beginning to wonder if she hasn't changed her flight plans and not notified anyone here. I guess we will talk to her when she gets back.
I have taken a few pictures the past couple of days. I will post them tomorrow when we get to the hotel and can use our laptop again. That will be a nice treat. We will aslo be able to instant message our family there which is great for us. Until next time.
