I haven't really had the time to update this thing. We are doing really well....we have been busy working and having work done on our house. Hopefully within the next month or so we will be moving to our new bedroom. Carol is doing pretty well healthwise. Her in house rehab, which remarkably has been ongoing almost daily for two years, will officially come to and end at the end of this year, so she is really busy at home working on learning how to cook again, how to bathe the girls, and all the in's and out's of what she defines as being a mother. We continue to finetune our house to accomodate and enable her to do all of that.
In doing all of that it is a struggle at times with the girls. They are so used to certain things happening at a certain speed, and Carol in general takes a bit longer. Safiya, has really developed her own personality..she is a little comedian/clown...trying to make us all laugh most of the time. Chloe is challenging at times. Don't get me wrong she is great and we love her, but she is much higher maintenance than Safiya, which sometimes makes everything Carol is trying to do a little more difficult. Most people tell us she is just a normal 3 year old, but sometimes we wonder if what happened to Carol has had some effect on her negatively. Anyway.....what else. Chloe is in soccer, which, she is doing great in.
Carol's leg's have gotten pretty stable, and we have developed a really great system at home for her to take care of herself, even more than the last couple years. I will post some pictures of everyone when I can. Thanks for all of the support.

Thank you for the update Scott, it is great to hear you are all doing well. Hang in there with the kiddos, they are all really good at finding mom & dad 'buttons' :-) we miss you and can't wait to see the pics!

so glad you posted :)

take it from a first born: we are headstrong and dont like to be told what to do. we can be difficult sometimes! :)

you guys are awesome people and shower those girls with lots of love. whatever else you do as parents, there will be hang ups created no matter how perfect you try to be! my parents loved the crap out of me and it gave me so much confidence. that love and those hugs you are giving are so important, your girls are going to turn out awesome! :)

I think you and Carol are doing a fantastic job parenting your two lovely girls. It is not always easy, but that goes for all of us parents. Chloe and Safiya are lucky to have you both!
