Just wanted to jot down a few things to help me remember this trying/enchanting time with Kevin and Claire.
Claire can't say vanilla...no matter how hard we try and no matter how hard she tries it still comes out valilla. She used to say live room instead of living room and now that is gone. She is crazy about art and drawing. She still has to go over the schedule for the day about 700 times before noon....even if there isn't a schedule of anything to do. I know that school is so good for her because of the schedule. She does so much better with that.
Kevin loves his shopping cart. He carries everything he can in there. Still having problems with him taking things that aren't his, but at least we know where to look now. He is still Claire's shadow. Sometimes that is good and sometimes that is bad. He doesn't understand the concept of personal space, so he frustrates Claire often. They do love to play together and the worst punishment they can have is to be separated. I wonder if he wouldn't benefit from a little brother.....Duane says no way, but I am continuing to pray for wisdom and strength to parent him correctly. He is still so new to the family dynamics, I believe he will find a comfortable place in his own skin.
