I picked up my personalized license plates this week - My RAV now has plates that say "DJS RAV". Pretty cool! I got the 9/11 Memorial plates, so the are red/white/blue with "We will never forget" on the bottom as well. You know you lead a boring life with that is the highlight of your week!
Alli did well at horse therapy again this week - not quite as good as the first session, but she still rode for a half hour without complaining (much). I didn't make it to the session this time - I was at soccer practice. Maybe next week AJ and I can both stop by and watch!
Alli only has 4 more days of school! She is out on June 5th. AJ goes one more week after that - out on the 12th. I can't believe school is out already! Alli has 4 weeks of summer school, so still has a bit more time, but where did the year go this time? It just flew by. They still don't know where Alli will be next year, or who will be her teacher. I talked to her current teacher yesterday, and it sounds like the class won't be at their current location next year, though that can change, too. I just love this GREAT Partnership! At least when it was the County running it, they had their own classrooms they could use, instead of having to beg and borrow a new site every year.

Alli went down for a nap, and I planned on working outside while she napped, but....she fell asleep on my lap. There was no way I was going to wake her up just so I could do some chores, so I was forced to sit quietly and crochet for over an hour. Bummer! I just have a few more rounds on my latest doily, and it will be finished. This one has taken forever, it feels like. I haven't felt like crocheting at all this week (headaches at night - no concentration!)
I don't know what I will get done today on my lists - AJ is going in to town to work on an Eagle Project for one of the scouts from 10:00 to 1:00, so I will take him in to town, go to church (in Anderson - opposite direction) and go back and get him. That will kill a big chunk of time! I am being lazy this morning, too, and not getting much done around the house this morning. Alli let me sleep in until 6:00 this morning, but she is high maintenance today, so everything takes a bit longer to get done. I wish it were warmer, and I could throw her in the pool - that always seems to put her in a good mood!

Alli did great at her first therapy class! She was happy and smiling all the way through - and it was 30 minutes on the horse. The new therapist listened to us, and Ralph is volunteering as a side walker, so he can watch Alli as well, and tell the therapist what he is seeing, as well as answer questions. He made it home from Sac with about 10 minutes to spare, and turned around and went to therapy with us. I feel a lot better about this session! Alli came home and almost took another nap - that was hard work (not that they let her know she was really working!)

AJ is off on the Freshman Trip. The class went over to Patrick's Point (on the coast, by Eureka) for Wednesday, Thursday and Friday. They have some very cool weather - mid 50's in the day and mid 40's at night. This is a combination scientific/bonding/fun trip for them. I think it is more "fun" than science though!
Ralph, Alli and I are off to Sacramento tomorrow, too. Ralph has meetings in Sac, and Alli has an appointment with her Neurologist. Alli and I will leave here at 6:00 for a 9:00 appointment, and probably leave Sac at 9:30. Fun day! She also starts her horse therapy tomorrow afternoon. Ralph doesn't think he will be back in time, so I get to take her - yippee! (Horses are Ralph's bag, not mine, but...I will take her out there.) I don't know what time Ralph will leave, he hasn't said yet.
