I managed to hand piece this block Tuesday afternoon while the kids had naps and I rested and watched a few recorded shows. It was a long night with Miss Emmy and I didn't have much energy to do much else. Got to love how they share their colds with everyone, namely Mom and Dad. Hopefully she is feeling better after her nap and will sleep through the night tonight instead of being awake a few times between 11-2 and then 'my belly hurts' from 2-5:30 in the morning. I have a feeling we all will be in bed early tonight. The good news, we did go to her review this morning of her evaluation from last month and they agreed she could use some speech therapy. Now it is just waiting for a phone call from the therapist and she'll go to school twice a week for a 30 minute session to help her out. Hopefully we all will be able to understand her a bit better and reduce some frustration on her part for us not understanding her as much as we should.
The block is not perfect but I am happy with it being done. Everything is a learning experience.... I think I need to start pressing after piecing the parts before I put it all together. It could also use some pressing into submission at the top there... but that will wait for another day.
