Back by Popular Demand

I've been taking a blogging break this summer and, at times, have thought about retiring the old blog completely as often it has turned into "just one more thing to do," if you know what I mean (and if you have a blog, you know what I mean). Although you may not have noticed, since my posts aren't exactly regular in the first place.

But, my faithful readers (all two of them) seem to kind of miss me, so I guess I will try my best to put up a post here and there.

It has been three months since my last post, so obviously I have much to report. Some good. Some very, very far from good. However, I'm not ready to get back into the blog quite yet. So, at the very least, I thought I would take a quick second to include a link to an insightful post from Kate, a teacher of learners with multiple special needs, titled Living the Least Dangerous Assumption, which discusses the idea of presumed competence. I think this is the single most important gift you can give a person with special needs. Reading the post, particularly her list of ways you can live the least dangerous assumption, is well worth your time.

I'll leave you for now with a blurry, yet cute, little candid I shot the other day of Trevor reading to the kids.

Hi there! I was so happy to see your post in my reader. Hope nothing too dramatic is happening your way.

I'm sorry your blog feels like a chore, but it does happen.

I have been waiting rather impatiently for a new post! :-) I can't believe how much Audrey has grown!! She looks like such a big girl! Fletcher looks great, too. Hope you all are doing well!

I was able to go see the new addition to the NICU this week (my mom works there now...funny how things work out).

Please don't quit! I love reading your blog and keeping up with you (at least a little) long distance. By your post it makes me wonder if things are ok -- I hope things are. I want you to know that I think of you often and always wish the best for you and your miracle family. Let's touch base soon. -Malia
