Friday afternoon was sunny and beautiful, although a bit chilly. I desperately needed to get outside in the fresh air and sunshine. Bethany actually wanted to go outside too. Beth willingly spending time outside is a new development, one that began when I bought her bubbles. I love it!
The past several years I have felt a little bit like a prisoner in my own home because she was having so many seizures that she couldn’t really leave the couch very often. Staying in the house during the spring and summer is not fun, so I’m liking this new development a lot!
I had to bribe Jeremiah to go out with us. He never wants to leave his computer. The reality of the situation is that we live in a rural area and Jerry doesn’t have any friends living nearby to go outside and play with. There really isn’t much else for him to do except get on the computer.
I’m a little concerned that he doesn’t get enough exercise and fresh air though, so I told him if he went outside for a half an hour and moved around that I wouldn’t make him do any schoolwork. Well, I guess he thought that was a pretty good deal because he jumped up and went outside with us! He ended up cleaning some of the garbage up out of the yard for me, so that was an added bonus!
On Saturday, we drove to the city to get a few things at Walmart and decided to go to the park to walk and get some more exercise!
