We spent a few weeks in Portugal after New Year and then we promptly got back into the groove of life. That's what happens isn't it? You just get to doing the things that need to be done. Then you look up and it's spring!
Sebastian had a major growth spurt and a hair cut and we found this big kid in his place! He celebrated his 4th birthday in the hospital with a double ear infection and then one of his ear drums burst. He's enjoying Nursery School and is improving each week. This kid really impresses me. He's so cool and he tries so hard to make friends. He tries hard to express himself and try new things even when it is difficult. When I look at him and see how far he's come in the last several months I am just blown away. He's just the best. It also breaks my heart to watch him try and try and not be accepted by kids/parents/people around him. The hardest part about autism is other people. But, he's doing awesome and I couldn't be more proud. He's happy and that's all that matters!
I went and did something kind of big. I went back to University! Can you believe it? I can't. Luis has been talking to me about it for a long time and when we talked about him going back to school he said he wouldn't go until I went. Well, cue the tears. I've got a great husband. So, I hurried up and got all the things you need to do to start Uni done and here I am. I have a poetry paper due tomorrow and a test at the end of the week. I'm doing everything online which I love. It's a great experience so far.
Spring is slowly arriving in Aberdeen. The temps are slowly coming up. Just 1-2 degrees at a time but it's steady and I like that. The sun shines so much more in Aberdeen than the West of Scotland and it's really nice. I've been trying out some local cafe's while Sebastian is in Nursery School and I'm doing homework. We have some great food here! I've even been able to dine al fresco already! It's quickly becoming my favourite thing to do while he is in school. Who doesn't love some time for themselves and good food?
I'm going home to America in a few days! It's been 6 yrs since I've been home and it is time. It will be just Sebastian and me so I hope we can fly without any hiccups. We'll be spending most of our time in Ohio/West Virginia with my family. It's a long overdue trip.
Well, I'm off to finish this poetry paper and then get Sebastian off to school. What have you been up to lately?
