Today was Keree's first day back to school. She's still in her wheelchair during school and still only going 1/2 days. She can stand for small amounts of time and even walk very short distances (like under 5 ft). I was surprised when I didn't have a battle at school. They were fine with her continuing 1/ 2 days. Honestly, I think the teacher realized how hard it was to have her there almost a full day.

Well tomorrow Keree heads back to school. When I told her tomorrow is school, she screamed at me that she didn't want to go. I really wish I knew what was going on in that mind of her's sometimes. She loves to learn, she loves doing math and she loves reading when she's at home but she doesn't want to go to school and do those things. Honestly, after the class holiday party I could see why, it was pure chaos. But I really hoped that she would look forward to seeing her friends at least. We were also hoping that Keree would start back on full days and with the walker after break but that's not going to happen. We can't control the extreme swelling or bruising just from her walking on it for a short time. I can just hear the battle I will have tomorrow with the school. I honestly wish that they could go through something like this with their own kids so they would understand. They have made our lives so difficult and stressful over the last 5 months and it didn't have to be this way. It took me forever to get Keree to sleep tonight, it didn't help either that our schedule is out of whack. Our bedtime lately has been almost 1030-11p, when it usually is 9p. Guess, I need to head to bed also, so I can be prepared to battle.

My entire house woke up late this morning...by late, I mean it was 10 minutes till 9am. We had planned on having breakfast and then taking a few family pictures before my Brother head home to Ohio. But since it was so late, we skipped breakfast and captured a few family pictures since we didn't get any during Christmas. We were all surprised at how well they turned out since we had the camera sat on some boxes and the timer set. After pictures were taken, we helped my Brother load a few more boxes into his car and then said our good-byes. Being that he will be moving to Michigan before late spring, we know our visits with him will become less frequent. Well unless Keree has her way, she told me that she's ready for us to move and live with Uncle. Since we were starving, I decided to throw together a crustless quiche. Literally, I started off with a basic recipe and then started adding other stuff that sounded good. So our crustless quiche had spinach, ham, onions,roasted red peppers and 3 kinds of cheese in it. I honestly didn't know how it was going to taste but it was so pretty coming out of the oven that I had to take a picture. Thankfully, it tasted as good as it looked. As for the rest of our day, Keree spent her time playing on her new ds that my Step-Mom got her for Christmas. My Mom and I worked on adding photos to the shop website. So not a very eventful day two of the New Year.
