So much changes over the course of a year. 2017 was no exception. Not only was it a fresh start from 2016, but it ushered in a lot of change and excitement for our family.
After having lots of issues with the battery on my van dying, I got a fancy new battery. It’s okay to be jealous. Thankful to not have any more issues.
Girl Scout Cookie season started. The beginning of the longest two months ever. I love the cookies, but I’m not sad when it ends in March.
Lily got an MRI on her ankle. She has Osteochondritis, but we didn’t know the extent until after the MRI.
I celebrated 10 years at work. I’ve been working with the same company for 10 years. That used to be the norm, but it isn’t so commonplace anymore. I love the girls I work with and adore our clientele. Continue reading →
Today was the last Sunday of National Ice Cream Month, so we just had to venture out for some frozen confection. It’s be a shame if we didn’t.
It was recommended that we visit Zoyo Neighborhood Yogurt. (It is where Spoonz used to be located at on Thomas Road by Target.)
I know this technically isn’t ice cream, but they had Cake Batter froyo! My favorite! I haven’t been able to find it since Yum Yums moved to Wisconsin. And, fresh fruit! Whipped cream is available upon request, but it is not on the topping bars. Continue reading →
It was a stressful start to the day. I couldn’t find my bathing suit bottoms. I had to run to the store to find new ones. Found ones I liked, and they were reshelved while I was in the fitting room trying on shorts.
I will save the annoyance of shopping for women’s clothing from a big box retailer for another post.
We joined up with Lily’s Girl Scout troop at Jury Pool. The kids have gone quite a bit with their day camp program, but I hadn’t been in 20 years. Waaaaay before they renovated.
The kids loved it. Both were ready for bed shortly after we got home. Navy fell asleep on the floor. Lily at least showered and put jammies on.

The 2017 pool season is May 27th- August 6th. We are open daily 12:30pm-8pm, weather permitting.
Hard to believe that the school year is out for the summer.
Navy finished kindergarten and will be moving on to first grade in the fall. He had a great year and is making strides in reading.
Lily is done with fourth grade. This year had been a bit of a struggle because more of the work required Lily to stay organized to get her assignments and work turned in on time. Her teacher gave us some great advice so that won’t be an issue in fifth grade.
I can’t believe that we’ll be gearing up for First Grade and Fifth Grade in the fall. However, we still have summer!
So many fun and exciting things are going to be happening soon, and we’re going to enjoy it while we have a break from school!
One of the issues we deal with constantly is Lily’s tactile sensitivity. Some materials bother her. The cuts of some of her clothes, particularly pants, agitate her. Add to that, she is now in a walking boot.
Jeans don’t fit over her boot. Jeans don’t feel comfortable in her boot. She’s been wearing leggings as much as possible.
We also came home with two kid’s Azure skirts, two Gracie shirts, and an Adeline dress. I’m hoping that with the LuLaRoe leggings that Lily already has, this will making having to wear a walking boot less annoying for her.
Jennifer is a LuLaRoe fashion retailer in New Haven, Indiana. She started her business in 2016. “I am happy to help you find the most comfortable, fun, and flattering clothes to make you feel fantastic.”
Lily’s ankle has an osteochondral defect (OCD) that is approximately 1 centimeter wide. It is almost half of the width of her ankle bone (talus).
Talking with her orthopedist, he feels that she would be better served by a pediatric orthopedic surgeon. Unfortunately, we don’t happen to have one in our area. She has been referred to a surgeon from Peyton Manning Children’s Hospital in Indianapolis.
Hoping that we are able to get an appointment with this new ortho Doctor in a few weeks to get this ankle of hers fix!
