I decided to start blogging about Jordan from the moment I found out I was pregnant. Jordan was born with a little arm that didn't grow like most babies. Her left arm stopped just above the elbow. Now I'm committed to making sure Jordan gets everything out of life. We feel blessed to be the parents of a very special little girl.

The school year so far

Jordan is starting to warm up to her class... It's funny how she reacted so negatively to her new class when she had one teacher that she's had since April and she's in the same room. The trick: one new teacher and only two of the same classmates. We regressed a ton in the potty training department and she was ANGRY at school.

Luckily she warmed up to the class this week. She was happy at drop off and she was kind to her new teachers.

Today she got to go to her brother's first soccer game. She met new friends who are identical twins (her second set of identical twin friends). She had a great time and even tried to kick around the ball a bit. It was great.

We're gearing up to take the family to the first football game of the season. We're very excited. Our team could be really successful this year!! Go Tigers!

Riley kicks with his left leg too.
What is up with that?

My only theory is it's a balance thing. She looks so funny and focused when she kicks. She only really picked up the skill of jumping a month ago!

Is it already getting chilly there? I noticed Jordan is wearing a long sleeved shirt...
Here it's still around 96 to 99 degrees! I was just telling my hubby this morning how i am SOOOO ready for cooler weather. Ready for the fall stuff to start showing it's head.
Probably won't start cooling down, though, until early Oct.

Yeah - Saturday morning was really chilly. Fall jumped in for a visit with the help of leftover Gustav rain. I doubt it will last... I hope it does!
