S.W.A.K.: Here's to More ... of the GOOD stuff
Samantha officially started a 2-period school day. She continues to be in great pain most of the time. Everything she was missing at school was so overwhelming, plus she's having more difficulty with focusing and short-term memory. I can only imagine the incessant foggy feeling. Anyway, hopefully this will help her focus some and relieve some of that stress. She had her 3rd MRI come up normal again. This time it was focusing on her neck and shoulder area. Very frustrating. We're ready for answers, or better yet, a miracle.
Sarah and Nicholas had their second TAG group meeting at school this week and they're excited about their respective projects. Nicholas is learning about cryptography and DaVinci's mirror code and Sarah is working on a nature diary. She and her friend are re-binding a couple of blank books, then will be going on excursions to press flowers, do rubbings and collect all kinds of as-yet-unknown goodies. I'm so proud to see the initiative they're taking.

Four hours later, I was putting the finishing touches on the "cardboard". Don't have pictures, but it wasn't anything complicated. Just two 30" square panels with casing for a tension rod and matching ties. The fabric was sweet, though--I'll definitely have to use the scraps--maybe for some gift card wallets ...
