Jean came to visit


Ryan rode the bus for the very first time yesterday. He was happy before he got on the bus. See the smiles!!! He was OK when he got on the bus too. Kind of excited. Then you see the last picture I took of him. He has that scared look in his face then. Broke my heart!!! He was not happy to see me leaving and letting him actually go.on.the.bus like that. Very emotional day. He pooped (nervous tummy), was non-compliant (says his teacher in a note) and took a nap on the way home (don't know for how long). He was super thirsty and hungry. I could tell that he was not happy with the situation.

I was also very proud of him. A few years ago they didn't think that he would live and he is now riding a bus by himself and dealing with it! He is so amazingly strong!!!!

Jasmine loves butterflies. Our new house has a few butterfly bushes around it. I took this picture during my corn grilling disaster. I got so distracted by this beauty that the husks caught on fire and we almost made popcorn instead of dinner. I am clear now on why they tell you to take all the husks off except for the very inner ones. GOT IT! Anyway, Jasmine is loving the butterflies. There are often many on one bush. They flutter and chase. Simply beautiful animals.
