Meredith Aces Western Civ

The other night Meredith pulled one of her famous 100% sleepless nights. She did not sleep one wink. She wasn't upset or crying, but there was zero sleep happening. In the morning Greg sent her with a note in her backpack saying she pulled an all-nighter cramming for her Western Civ exam. In the afternoon, she came home with this. We love this school : )

First day of School!

Today is Meredith's birthday and it's also her first day of school! The bus just came and picked her up. Her driver Charles and the Aide Sandy were here right on time. They backed her up on the ramp into the van, buckled down her wheels on her new Stingray Stroller. We waved goodbye and off they went...
We had our last appointments with the Early Intervention crew last week. We will miss our therapists we have come to know and love very much. They have been a major part of our support system these last few years. Always making us feel like we had a place that we fit. It's a little scary to think of being without them, but we are very excited for Meredith to start school which has made this transition much easier. She is going to love school and being around all the children. The house is quiet and I know I'll be so curious about what she is doing every minute of the day. Here are a few pictures of her send off.

Mer turns 3!

Saturday we had a birthday party for Meredith at Southwick's Zoo. The day started out a little rainy, but ended up working out fine. It stopped raining by the time we were done with pizza, cake and presents at our "birthday pavillion" (which was covered) and then we were ready to hit the zoo - which as a result, was not crowded at all! We actually had the whole kiddie ride section to ourselves : ) It was a great memory and all the kids had fun stuffing their own animal and seeing all the other real animals. I was really bad about taking pictures - I think I have 4 from the whole day, but here are a couple...
