Whoops, been a while.

Wow, didn't realize it had been this long since I'd posted.

Not really a lot has happened. We had some birthdays. And of course, Mommy forgot to take pictures of Daniel's... Genius. And I haven't really had the chance to sit down and do something with William's yet.

William has been officially diagnosed with ADHD and we are working to find the right medications for him. It wasn't as hard a decision to medicate as it was with Oren. Probably because we had been doing our dye-free diet since Oren was in kindergarten. And because I know how Oren was able to be himself on the right meds. He's doing really well on it so far, except he can't swallow the capsules so we have to open them and sprinkle the medicine into applesauce, so it's not extended release anymore.

Daniel brought home a cold from the nursery, and it apparently has a long incubation time, because he got sick last Saturday but Nathan and Oren are just showing symptoms today. Lovely.

And, just a little thing I suppose, but.... we are officially house hunters! We talked to a lender, and have a realtor looking around for something to fit both our family- and our rather limited budget. Nothing fancy at all, nothing brand new and shiny. But ours. Choices look slim right now, although we have a few on our list to see next Friday. It probably seems odd to be wanting to buy a house while still students, but this apartment is just not working. Buying at our budget gives us a smaller payment every month than rent is, and we'd like to be here for a good while. With Mark's student status, we have to find something and close before the end of the year or we have to wait until he's done with the next school year in July. So either this is going to be a whirlwind couple of months... or a very disappointing and long wait.

See, nothing really big happening here! :-)
