brief update (not dealing with underwear)

Howdy all,
I will say that going from one child to two has kept us on the move, I think two is not twice as much work it is work squared!
Calli is doing well, still emotionally adjusting, but the mourning process will work itself out. Acer quite likes having a sister and has said that we need to go back and bring home another one!
She's starting to make friends at church thanks to VBS and then made more last week at goalball camp. The coach said she was an athlete and a great player (for only playing once before, she's a good wing now and will be a better center once she can actually hold the ball - her hands are so small!)
We went to the Dr last week and he gave a prelim diagnosis that put her on the Retinits pigmentosa spectrum. We're going to a specialist in a couple weeks and they'll do some genetic testing to determine what her status really is.
Life is continuing on, and we're all easing into a new form of family, so if I don't comment as much, I still try to read my groups at least once a week. and visit those blogs that I know of.
Have a great summer
Heather BT

I can't wait to hear how Calli does in goalball! That sounds so exciting!:) I think also think it is great that Acer has a sister- don't siblings make the best buddies!? It sounds like everything is going really well with you guys- I hope you have an awesome summer as a family!

I'm so glad the adjustment is going well. I can just imagine how hard it would be for Callie. That is so cute that Acer wants another sibling!!

That was what I always heard about two, it isn't twice the work but like you said squared.
