All Dressed Up

We went to a friend's wedding yesterday, which gave us the rare opportunity as a family to dress up a bit.  We're more casual around the Leyba household, so this was definitely a fun treat (just to give you an idea of how often this happens, Jason's dress shirt was still in the dry cleaning bag from the last time he wore 2007).  Savannah was amazed to see her mommy wearing heels and daddy wearing a tie.  I had planned on having my brother get a nice family photo of us all together, but (not surprisingly), we were running late and there was no time for that.  So, instead, I've got a variety of shots...none with all of us together though.

We had a lot of fun together, and Savannah enjoyed running all over the place with the other children who were there.

In other news, we've begun potty training Savannah.  So far, so good.  I think she was ready for us to finally start this with her, which is why she's taken to it all so easily.  She'll have her first day in the preschool room (!) tomorrow, and I think she'll be okay to ditch the diapers...fingers crossed anyways :)

I've also returned to teaching this semester (first day of class is the 29th, though I've been back on campus for a few weeks already taking care of all the prep work).  Jason has started taking Savannah to school one day a week, which has gone surprisingly well.  We were a little worried about how they'd do navigating the car seat situation, but it's gone fine so far.

Jason is doing well...keeping up with his Kennedy Krieger home program.  The paperwork has been submitted to insurance for the standing frame, so hopefully we'll hear back about that soon.  We've been told that we should expect to be denied the first time I'm gearing up for a battle with insurance....have all the abstracts from studies that prove the benefits of standing for folks with SCI.  Though who knows, we've not been denied anything yet by insurance, so maybe we'll be pleasantly surprised.

I hope that all of you are enjoying the last days of summer.  We're off to the water park to enjoy the warm weather!

Love you all,
