A Happy Birthday and a wagon ride
The good thing is by 9 p.m. the temperature drops down to around 60 and we do most of our moving and lifting then.
Then I can turn the oven on in the cabin to bake Samson a Birthday cake! (In the mean time I make snack cakes in the toaster oven in the trailer) Our friends at Sweets and Such have a little frozen (ice cream) surprise for him. Today it's hot enough to drink ice cream. We can't transport it the 8 miles from the shop in our hot van now!
To the left of Samson is the Builder's trailers and supplies. He's watching the subfloor put in.
So far educationally Moses is exceeding his brothers in comprehension. We knew Noah may never understand a lot of what we do, due to his combination of 9 years in a crib and FAS. (not his DS) But Moses has been a HUGE surprise in a small package. Even Julius who understands a lot can not learn as easily due to his constant attention seeking behavior. Which is a bigger handicap than DS.
DS as always is the least of our worries with our boys. In fact DS partially makes our boys kinder, more patient and more forgiving. Something that little boys without DS would understandably not be, if they have gone through the same deprivation.
Trust is a different issue. I don't think Julius, Moses, or Jacob will ever trust anyone again. Which is understandable but hurts our hearts.
This is week 2. So much more to do!
