Busy and adjusting

I have to say in many ways we are busier in Denver than we ever were in California.  We still have our family time but it is different.

Last weekend we stayed close to home because of snow but the last few days have made me go WOAH!.  Monday Drew now has Lego Club and rock climbing.  Wed we headed to Children's to meet with the Rehab Doc who will be administering the Botox treatment in a couple weeks.  a story for another post. Thursday I got to help with Drew's class Valentines party in  his Gen Ed and after that I am more convinced than ever  the school district is wrong and that the placement is so incorrect it is not funny.  We now have an advocate but that is a story for another day.  Friday Scott stayed in the City for the evening and got to spend time with people from his old company.  He had a wonderful time.  Drew and I hung out at home and watched TV.  Yesterday we had a late brunch, did some shopping and then went to our friends house for a wonderful dinner.   Today I am taking Drew swimming with a friend of mine who I have not seen since JR. HIGH.

We are still adjusting to life here and a new normal when it comes to routine.  Sometimes we have to stop our selves and say "we have been here less than 3 months and things are still shaking out"  Is some ways it feels like we have been here for a long time and this has always been home.  Maybe it is because of the Midwest feel and life style?  I know I feel more at home here.  More relaxed, more in control. Still adjusting but this feels like where I belong.

One of the most important things when you move to a new city is to find a new place for weekend breakfast.  We have found a place.  It is called Breakfast on Broadway.  The have a great menu.  We found it by accident last weekend.  Scott and I had dropped Drew off at a Scout event last week and decided to take some couple time and were driving down the road and saw this place.  The parking lot was pretty full so we figured it must be good.  We were right.

Drew has been having trouble eating lately.  With the weight loss, we are willing to let him eat things he normally doesn't get to eat.  This morning we went to Breakfast on Broadway and Drew had the S'more Pancakes.  Panckes with chocolate chips, chocolate syrup, marshmallow syrup and graham crackers.  He did eat more than he has in several days.  We talk to the doc tomorrow about where we go from here.

He is now having some insomnia as well.  Please keep him in your thoughts and prayers as we figure this out.
