We are now fully making our own food. A big huge thank you to all those who helped us with meals. It was such a fantastic help and words can hardly express how much we appreciate it. Our meals are simple and what I call a one dish meal, basically a casserole of some sorts.
I am back to schooling the girls. Another big thanks to Grammy for all her help in this area. We are able to get most of our school work done with minimal interruptions. The boys are pretty good with finding something to keep them busy in the school room while I work with the girls. Nap time is when we get our science done since that takes mommy presenting the lesson.
The boys can understand about 75% of what we say to them. And Tyson can communicate a lot back to us. We have learned to figure out what he has to say and he does all of his talking in English.
Even Tatum has some words he says. "Mama" being his number one choice. He has some made up names for Tissy - "Gigi" and Tally - "Allee" - and Chuck is most often "Abba".
We use signs with Tate. It has been fun to watch him pick these up. Here are some of the most common ones.
They are learning new things every day. It is a joy to teach them and help them learn. Their world is exploding with information and we are just amazed at how they soak it all in. I hope this is an encouragement for those families that are preparing to bring new little ones home and are concerned about the communication situation. God's grace has been sufficient.
