I am sorry it has taken me this long to update about Cade’s clinic day. I have been in a real “I hate Duchenne” period of time and didn’t want to sound whiny when writing this post. However, not being sure when this period of time is going to pass and after quite a few … Continue reading All His Strength
We had just driven 4 hours and had an appointment with a pretty amazing team to have all the wind knocked out of our lungs. We came that day as normal parents, ones with hopes and dreams of grandchildren and career possibilities. We left that afternoon as Duchenne parents with a new goal of seeing … Continue reading So Now What?
Two and a half years ago, I had heard about muscular dystrophy, but knew no other information about it. We had known that Cade had some struggles with running, coordination, jumping, and going up stairs, but didn't yet know why. Then came the mention of muscular dystrophy. I didn't even know anyone with muscular dystrophy … Continue reading What is Duchenne?
One of my favorite bible verses is Psalm 46:10 which says: "Be still and know that I am God...". But if I'm honest being still is not really a strength of mine. But after the last week, this verse keeps repeating itself in my head. This month is Muscular Dystrophy Awareness Month. I was trying … Continue reading Being Still
We have been keeping a little secret from the boys for a couple of weeks now. This weekend's trip was to reveal that secret. It all started when Cade came to stay with Amber and Micah. While there, he met a coworker of Micah's, Melissa Brown, who is a board member of the Heartland DSC. … Continue reading A BIG Reveal
Tomorrow we will have one week of school officially under our belt. I have also come to learn that I and Cade have a great deal of anxiety about back to school. I hesitated writing this too soon because our school system is amazing and the staff is top notch! I didn't want to distract … Continue reading Back to School
One week ago, I was preparing for farmers market and packing Cade to go spend a few days in Lincoln with his aunt. I kept going along while waiting for Cade's anxiety to set in. But the anxiety never came! No questions on how he would get to bed. No questions about how he would … Continue reading Carefree!!
So we started off fair officially last week with shooting sports. Cole participated in trap shooting on July 10. He had a great time and did well. Then we kicked off our inaugural year of Farmers Market on the 11th. It was a hot day but Cade absolutely loved it. He had a blast selling … Continue reading Fair, Faith, and Farmers Market
We have hit our summer stride and my mind does not think about writing a post until I am in bed and too exhausted! We are doing great and have even started sending Cade out with a video camera or a GoPro so he can video his adventures. I have now figured out how not … Continue reading Gearing up for Market
I've decided that when you have multiple locations and multiple types of gardens that maybe we should call what we do farming. But whatever we decide to call it, we have been busy getting things to grow at our place. Cade enjoys the beginning and the end of the process much more than the middle … Continue reading Farming Away
