A Good Day

Today was a great day for the Attaway fam. To kick it off, DeLaynie had an evaluation with Alabama's early intervention. She did very, very well. It looks like she may not even qualify for continued therapy. Even if she does, I am very proud of her for all of the progress she has made. School has already helped, I believe. I know that she loves it because this morning she ran to the door and asked, "School?"

Then we got to meet up with B.Wal and her fam. They're in the state visiting family and attending a work-related conference, which worked out well for us. We have missed them greatly. DeLaynie was extremely excited to hear that we were going to see Woodstock. Tonight Mom mentioned his name, and she started running around the house trying to find him. She's got it bad.

To make the day a bit more memorable for B.Wal and her hubby, we made shirts. Each one of us had "I (heart)" followed by the name of the corresponding Wal family member. We were pretty proud of ourselves for such dedication to a joke. I think they got a kick out of it.

Edwin interviewed for a job today as well. We don't know anything yet, but he seemed to think that it went well.

Finally, Mom was kind enough to throw a dinner party and invited the youth minister and his wife, along with their three boys. It was a lot of fun. We got to play a game and everything, thanks to my mom and dad being willing to take care of 5 kiddos. And they did a great job at it, too. The food was fabulous, and the company was splendid. The girls weren't in a great mood, but the evening was none-the-less a fun one.

DeLaynie kept coming over and grabbing the cards from the game we were playing. She was saying, "fish," which we didn't understand at all. Then Edwin realized she picked up on the card game Go Fish. I'm not sure where she got it, but I'm proud of her observation skills.

So it was a good day. Now it's time to try and get some sleep.

We seriously need to see a picture of your family with your heart shirts on. Especially if photographed with the Wal. family. But if that can't happen, a retake of the four of you in your shirts would be enough.
Sorry I'm the picture police and all. :)

B.Wal took a picture of us in the shirts. I haven't seen it yet, but when I do, I'll surely post it. I washed the shirts though. We need them. :)
