The kids have been wanting to try out a new park we spotted on one of our walks but its always so busy it would be hard to do with Mia along for her walk. The Busy Little B received a giftcard to Wendys for his birthday and he was so excited to take everyone to dinner because the Wendys near S's therapy office has $1.99 Kid Meals. Since we ate dinner out and I didn't need to cook, we had extra time so off we went to check out the new-to-us park without Mia along. They had a great time and another family was there with kids about their ages so it was even better :)

B has done so well in speech therapy lately that his therapist offered a "break" for all or part of the summer. As pleased as I am that he has made progress, I don't want to lose that momentum. He enjoys going to speech so I don't feel like he'll get "burnt out" on it. And even though he has made progress, his enunciation issues are definitely hindering him at school. The teachers can't always understand him and his spelling scores are really low because he spells phonetically and since he says the words wrong, he spells them wrong and he has trouble sounding things out so he's behind in reading as well. So I'd much prefer we keep on working our way through it in hopes that the improvements he can make over the summer help with school in the fall!
