Total Communication

G is great.

He had to give a talk on Sunday but we had lost the slip that said what it should be on. Last week was school registration and we were watching a friend's daughter because she had to work the registration. So I'm glad the only thing that got lost was that slip of paper. Anyway, when Sunday morning came and we still hadn't found out what he should talk on I was worried. As primary was starting I asked the president what the topic was and she told me. I ran off to get a pencil and paper and wrote him out a talk. When it was his turn he stood up at the podium and I walked up with his talk. I pointed to each word to help him pace. He stood up straight and signed and spoke it great.

Yesterday at school he told his principal "I can speak and sign at the same time. I can do both."

Geoff is great.

It's a good idea because it's a Joke

On Monday I took G in to Shands for a marathon of tests. Scheduled, not emergency. He had an EKG at 12, a bone density test at 1:30 and the HemOc appointment at 3. Busy day.

At the final appointment he was playing with the sticky hand he was given at the second appointment. When it was all nice and dirty, so it wasn't so sticky, he put it on the chair. It was the rolling chair that sometimes the Dr. sits on. Then he told me "When the Dr. comes in and sits there they will stand up and feel their bottom and say "Hey who put that on my chair" and I will hide and say Peek-a-boo! That's a joke. It's a good idea because it's a joke."

He's healthy and continues to be more and more gorgeous.


I wanted to make jam, and like always, I realized I didn't have quite enough sugar.  Rather than go to the store I asked G to calculate ...
