September News

I’ve been pretty quiet for a while. I’ve kept plenty busy working out things for our new home, scrapbooking traditionally (I discovered a hidden scrapbooking talent in Angie, & someday /I’ll post stuff we’ve made!), & I’ve been busy with a new calling (volunteer “job” at church) as a Personal Progress leader: In my church (The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints) we have a wonderful program for the Young Women (girls aged between 12 and 17) called Personal Progress that helps them to gain self-worth and a stronger relationship with their Heavenly Father. I get to help the girls & their parents work on this program, & I am in charge of the activity for the 3rd Tuesday every month, so until I get the swing of things, my focus is there…

In other news, about the beginning of September, , I’ve suddenly become clearer when I speak, & have begun to hold CONVERSATIONS w/o signing! One of the 1st was w/Angie’s son: lately, Angie’s son likes to block me from going places, so when I was headed to the bathroom before we were headed out of the house, & when he stood I’m front of me w/his arms & legs extended out. I said, “I can’t go to HEB…” (Our grocery store). His response, “But I want to go!” So I responded, “Then u better let me go potty!” & he moved out of my way! How awesome is that?!? I had a CONVERSATION w/a 3 year old!

On a similar note, about the same time, a friend heard me speaking at church, & commented, “I’m loving this! Aren’t you?!” A family member responded, “sometimes,” which makes me laugh! Before, family could say whatever they wanted around me…I couldn’t fight back, dish out punishments, etc. But now, watch out! 🙂
