Joy actually attended for her own session with Speech.  A huge achievement!

Joy has been struggling since school got out.  It’s probably the radical change in her schedule, but she has been very, very hard to live with!  The last couple of days have been better.  Thank goodness!!IMG_5504

We went to see Monsters University.  Joy loved it!photo 5 (1)

Joy’s Week

Joy had an appointment with the ENT.  With her snoring and sleep patterns, they are worried about sleep apnea.  So we are losing our tonsils and adenoids on July 30th. 

I had a bracelet made for Joy.  It says her name and has some hearts on it.  On the back is our phone number.  It makes me feel better.

Therapy is fun, especially when you can do it with your sister and cousin!


Her hair is FINALLY long enough for a pony tail!  Yea!!

Joy’s 6th Birthday

She has been so excited about her birthday! We have talked about it and she’s says, “Happy Dirthday! Happy Cake! Happy peasants!”

Jason took Joy out for breakfast.  Grandma Turpin sent Joy some money.  She bought a baby, a tea set, and a ball.That afternoon we had pizza and presents.  We gave her a new swim suit (with built in floaties!), a great hat (she adores hats), and horse.

Our big excitement was going swimming – she has been asking and asking and asking!
