We have been so busy lately that I haven’t had time to write.
My sister and her friend came for a visit from the USA and that was a short but action packed week.
It was hard on Sophia having people here, and it brought up a lot of emotion as she misses her Aunty (and Godmother) very much.
It was my nephew’s 21st so we went over for a short while and had Nana come and watch the kids. It was a change in routine, but the kids were great. They always are with Nana, she is so good with them.
We also had dinner at our extended family’s home and that was great, she did really well.
We hosted a barbecue with family and close friends to see my Sis before she left and that was a bit loud and overwhelming for all of us just because we never do it. But it was very fun and definitely worth having everyone together.
It was on Star Wars Day, so I made them waffles as princess Leia, and Sophia and I made wookie cookies, that was really fun.
Then Sophia helped with the menu and making potato salad and getting the house ready for the barbecue.
Sophia had a few lash outs over the noise, but everyone was fine with it as they understand it is just sensory related.
Overall, Sophia did really well and enjoyed the time with company.
It was a very crazy week, but she handled it like a pro.
We also went for a long drive to deliver my sis and her friend to my niece’s house.
The scenery was so amazing and we stopped and had fun along the way. I will do a post for the individual days as soon as I can.
My niece is a shepherd so Sophia had a great time learning about what she does as well as helping to feed the pups and meeting her horse.
We will definitely be going back when we have more time and Max is not in school, so her cousin Jess can show them both more of the farm, it is huge, and Sophia is looking forward to a ride in the cart.
