Our home assignment is half over and we’ve been busy lately with homeschooling the kids, working part-time, sharing at different churches and taking Davis to appointments with various doctors. Elroy and Scout have been working away at math, writing and other subjects with help from Alisha. I (Lincoln) have been working off and on helping a friend with some jobs.
We have made a few trips to churches over the last month or so. It’s always nice to see friends and we like road trips anyways. We will have several more trips in the coming months as well.
Davis has had a lot of appointments with doctors over the last couple months. He’s gotten caught up on most of his shots and he has been going to a speech therapist. We initially wanted him to see her because we thought he was behind in his speech ability/development. But the therapist thinks he is within the range of normal for his age. So they are just working with him on making some different noises like ‘sh’ and ‘th’.
Also, he went to an Ear, Nose and Throat specialist to have his hearing checked. His hearing is fine, but the specialist also looked in his mouth and ended up deciding to take his tonsils and adenoids out. He had the surgery this last Friday and is now recovering at home with lots of popsicles, yogurt and resting. We are hoping that having his tonsils out will help him to not get sick as often as before (about once a month).
We are starting to look ahead and see what all needs to be done before we head back to the field in July. Scout is going to need braces at some point and may need to have some teeth pulled first. One of the issues is that braces take a while to work and we need to find out if she can see an orthodontist once we are back in Asia that can do the adjustments needed. We keep buying the kids new clothes to take back, but Elroy is growing so fast, everything is too small for him within a couple months. Alisha is trying to make sure he and Scout finish up their schoolwork for this year in time for summer.
-Successful tonsillectomy for Davis
