Braden Comes home

Braden just got back from his LDS Mission to Washington. Braden is Ryan's youngest brother and the last one to get home from his mission. Pretty much the last 6 years have almost been a continual mission experience in Ryan's Family. We actually haven't had a Christmas or Mother's Day where we weren't at the Stoddard's talking on the phone with a missionary! Rob, Cameron and Braden. These boys have been amazing examples to my kids about serving missions.

Calvin was super cute holding a sign for Uncle Braden!

Ryan's siblings all get bears for when they are about to leave on missions and his sister got a bear as part of getting married! They decided it was only fitting to pose with their bears and take pictures! Classic! The bears actually go on family trips while the missionaries are gone serving the Lord. I think it's adorable!

Don't be confused.... The guy in the middle that looks a little Amish is actually ROB!

Calvin's Placement

We were never told life would be easy, but it will be worth it. I pray daily that I can become the women, mother and wife our heavenly father would have me be. I definitely make tons of mistakes and have so much to work on. I wish I knew just the right the to do and just the right things to say but I don't. I am not a writer and don't claim to be good at it but I wanted to express my feelings today. I have so much frustration bottled up inside that I might explode if I don't express myself. I definitely don't know what to do when it comes to my oldest Calvin and his needs. Here is a little of what I am currently struggling with.
Calvin is a 6 year old little boy with a summer birthday. He has been developmentally delayed since I can remember. He started out in early intervention then went to specialized preschool with the district. Our goal has always been to not need an IEP and to be mainstream. I honestly didn’t even know what an IEP was until I was forced to learn …
