A Picture of Me

My dear friend Tina had once mentioned that she wondered what I looked like so here you go Tina, a picture of me. This is me in Greece, I have no makeup on so you get what I really look like all natural. It's the only picture of me that I have that I am halfway happy with that shows the real me. Sure, I have pictures of me with makeup on looking a might better than this but since you are all my friends then I felt that I should be myself and show you my likeness unadulterated. So, for all of you who are reading this consider yourself tagged and let's see a picture of you. C'mon, it will be fun to do.

Griffin had OT on Wednesday and had a major meltdown throughout most of the session but once it was over he was fine. His behavior has been stellar here at home especially since it has been raining for so long and we have had to stay indoors to play. Of course we go out to take Abby but Griffin has to sit in the car while I walk her around the car at the park so that's no fun for him. Considering the amount of time that we have had to spend indoors he has been a happy little camper and playing beautifully with his toys, spelling with his magnetic letters and blocks, writing and drawing on his chalkboard, and of course singing and dancing to the music. Stephanie (the respite provider) has stayed with Griffin some for me and I have been able to run about and do some errands, thank goodness. Thank you Stephanie. School begins on Monday and as much as I have enjoyed spending time with him I do so look forward to having time to myself on a regular basis. Not only that but I am always very happy for him to have time away from me and in a different learning environment with lots of new stim each day.

Hope you are having a great day! Thanks for reading our blog and sharing in our day to day life, I'll be by to see you and visit your blog as soon as I can.

Yay Lora! I am so happy that you put a photo up my friend:) I think it's awesome:) Hooray!!
Griffin starts school on Monday! I know he'll love it cause he loves learning and loves Kathleen. It will be great to get back to the routine of school won't it? I think our kiddos do much better when they are busy guys! It finally rained here yesterday can you believe it? But today it's back to the sweltering heat yuck!

Thank you for sharing your photo with your blogger friends Lora, you and Griffin are beautiful:)

I agree - HURRAY for Monday! Although I am a big sad about my baby starting Kindergarten and nervous as to how he will do in a non-SPED room, as all the SPED kids go in the reg. room for kindergarten until they decide how to "place" them. Im so glad Griffin is having a better time of things and doing better!

WOWWWWWWW! Lora, you are truly a beautiful woman...inside and out! Griffin looks so much like you.

I've got pics of me all over the place, but I usually only put up the"good" ones...especially on the band's sites!

Wendy said...

Well, now I can see where Griffin gets his gorgeous little face. You are so pretty! Thanks for posting your pic! And I love all of the black and white pics of Griffin. They're excellent!

Angela said...

Griffin looks a LOT like you! Wow. It's so nice to place a face to your words. Thanks for sharing your picture with us!
I think I'll add a recent one soon, and link back over here when I do. :) xo, Angela
p.s.- I'm relieved that you're getting out of Alaska. I know what cold hard winters are like, ones devoid of sunlight. S.A.D. is a very real thing and you escaping it is the best thing you can do for yourself, and your little one. Having your family nearby will be icing on the cake. I'm very glad for you, that you've found the courage to uproot and make the move.
