Spelling Practice & A Day at the Farm

This past Friday Tanner was excited that he and I were planning to go see a high school football game (while Jon was in Dallas at a conference). When he arrived home from school I reminded him that if he wanted to see the game he would need to take a nap. There's no specific sign for nap so we tell him it will be a short sleep and then spell N-A-P. He grudgingly walked to his room while informing me that he preferred to be outside, watch a movie, read books, and more! Once he was in bed I reminded him when his N-A-P is finished we would go to the football game. He adamantly signed back "I want P-L-A-Y" (spelling play instead of using the sign.) At least he's learning to spell!

We ended up not making it to the football game as Tanner developed a migraine when he woke up. Later than night we went to the ER when he couldn't stop vomiting and he couldn't keep down any medicine to help with the pain. They gave him IV meds that helped with the headache, stopped the vomiting and allowed him to finally fall asleep. We're hoping that's related to both medications being at low doses.

On Saturday, Tanner felt much better and was up and ready to go early in the morning. So, our friend Audra, Tanner and I went to Dewberry Farm for some fall fun! Tanner had fun with the duck races, swinging, a corn maze, racing pedal cars, picking out a pumpkin and more! Here are a few pictures of our fun day!
