Where is Grammy?

Grammy came to visit us for two weeks, but she went home on Sunday morning.  Today mom and Nick were sitting on the porch and Nick came up to mom and he said, "grammy."

Mom said, "Grammy went home to Massachusetts, wasn't it nice that she came to visit.  She was here everyday to to meet your school bus."

Nick asked mom two more times and mom said the same thing each time.  Then he sat quietly on the ledge of the porch.

Fixing the House - Week 11

This week we brought our things back from storage.  Our kitchen is not installed yet, but we have all the boxes ready to be unpacked.

Nick's Room

We can't go back to the house yet, but we are getting ready. 

Nick had a big smile on his face when his new mattress arrived.
Nick's desk came back from storage and fits in the new space we made in his room.

We are all happy that the house is coming together and we will go home soon.

Fixing the House - Week 10

Last week the work men put the washing machine and dryer in the laundry room.  Nick liked the new machines, but mom was VERY happy. 

Mom said, "No more laundromat!  We can wash clothes at home again!"

Watching Wheel of Fortune

This week grammy is visiting.  Nick and grammy sat on the couch and watched Wheel of Fortune just like they did when Nick was little. 

Nick used to love to hear people shout out letters and then see them turn on the board.

But now, when the audience is clapping and shouting "c'mon big money!"  Nick claps his hands and shouts "Bankrupt! Bankrupt!" because he likes to hear the crowd say "ohhh!"

Mom said, "that's not really in the spirit of the game Nick."

Fixing the House - Week 9

This weekend grammy came to visit, she was very excited to see the changes to the house.

We walked from the rental to the house, Nick showed grammy the way.
Grammy was very surprised at how much the house has changed.

Mom said, "look, the appliances were delivered!"

Nick was happy to see the refrigerator, mom was happy to see the washer and dryer!

Happy Mother's Day

Today is Mother's Day.  Nick made mom cards at school and AHRC, but Nick made this card all by himself and left it on the table where mom found it.

 He put the dates and wrote Happy Mother's Day and added one of the pillars of character, caring.
This is a picture of Nick and grammy having Mother's Day dinner.

Fixing the House - Week 8

This week the workmen started to lay out our new floors. 
By Friday they had finished the kitchen.  The bedrooms are next!

Spider-Man Drawing

Friday night, mom was cleaning up paper and found this drawing Nick made of Spider-Man. 

Nick brings us the paper every day, he wants to go back to see the musical.  Mom said, "tickets for the theater cost a lot of money, I'm not sure if we can go back again.  But we can get the movie on DVD, maybe you will like that too."
