back to one

A few months back, I reported that our son had a new brother. Well, that didn’t work out so well, to say the least. After hearing our perfect angel choking and catching the older brother with his hands around our son’s neck, we asked that he be removed from our home. It took the maximum amount of time – about 30 days – but he finally was removed. Although I feel a tiny bit bad about his prospects outside of our family, I know that we can’t save them all. And maybe “saving” is not what we’re doing at all. But needless to say, we’re back to one. And that’s perfect.

It appears that [your son] is beginning to get the ‘education bug’ and has started to develop a love of learning. – His 4th grade teacher
