Catching up!!

Wow it's been a while! I know I say that each time but blogging these days is tough for me to accomplish! These boys keep me on my toes for sure! And when I have a free moment I tend to put my feet up and close my eyes! 

A LOT has happened since I last wrote. First and foremost, Evan is now a SIX YEAR OLD!!!! We celebrated his birthday on June 9 and then had his whole class over for a party that following weekend. He was a very excited and happy kid to have all of his buddies come play and celebrate. 



After our many birthday celebrations, Evan finished off his school year as a Kindergartener. So he is officially a first grader! Ahhhhh! I can't believe it! Evan's school is very special. He is surrounded by love and support and we couldn't ask for a better community to live in. This year, as the 6th graders moved up to the high school, they choose someone to dedicate their yearbook to. And can you take a guess at who they chose?? Check out this video. My little man walking up to accept the honor!!

(Sorry about the quality, the sound is all you really need!)

After the school year was over we kept busy doing summer activities. We took a family vacation to the Cape and then up to the Green Mountains in VT to camp. Evan just LOVES to camp. I was always a bit worried how we would work it out considering, camping isn't the cleanliest   experience. Fortunately our good friends live a mile from a beautiful camp area. We have the experience of true camping with a home and bath tub at our fingertips when need be. 





Between trips to the lake, trips to Action Wildlife, adventures walking through the grocery store to pick out snacks (which is his first choice) and the therapy/summer school he attended, we kept pretty busy. Now the summer is winding down and we have a few weeks left to enjoy. 




Another very exciting change for Evan is that he finally got his wheelchair! He's been very anxious to get it and couldn't be happier. I am so proud of him and how well he can maneuver this thing! He will be bringing it to school as his main source of independence.

I hope he lives many many years and becomes anything he disires he has touched my heart and i thank him for being being so positive and not letting anything bring him down.

  3. Herbal medicine has its roots in every culture around the world. There are many different systems of traditional medicine, and the philosophy and practices of each are influenced by social conditions, environment and geographic location, but these systems all agree on a holistic approach to life. Well-known systems of herbal medicine like Traditional Chinese Medicine and Ayurvedic Medicine believe in the central idea that there should be an emphasis on health rather than on disease. By using healing herbs, people can thrive and focus on their overall conditions, rather than on a particular ailment that typically arises from a lack of equilibrium of the mind, body and environment.

  4. The best way for Treatment of Ichthyosis is to soak the skin in lukewarm water and then slather your still damp skin with a cream moisturizer. You can add epsom salts or add moisturizers like colloidal oatmeal to your bath; salts and moisturizers help your skin absorb the water and lock in the moisture more successfully.
