Getting Services Set Up in Coeur d’Alene

We have now been in Coeur d’Alene for almost 2 months and certainly feel blessed for the opportunity to live in such a beautiful city.  The population is 6 more than the stated on the sign that reads:  44,137 and the metro region is 131,507.  I can seriously handle these numbers just fine.  Compare that […]

Our Move to Northern Idaho

We found a rental house in Northern Idaho, the Panhandle and moved here on July 2nd.  The move actually went pretty smooth, despite sucking up all of our savings, with much of the credit going to our friends, who volunteered to help with the packing, and our parents, who stepped in when we were in […]

Recent happenings: IEP, iLs, the dental visit, diet and the dog

So much has been happening since the last post in September.  Joshua’s school team and I met for an IEP on November 2nd and I was grateful to be able to update this new treatment team for him as to how his treatment is going outside of school.  We met for 2.5 hours, most of […]

Helping Joshua in Various Ways

So many things have been happening the last few months.  Where to start…  The last visit we had with Dr. Beighle was a great appointment where we were able to get some more tests on Joshua to see how he was doing with his Vitamin D levels as well as other allergies.  It turns out […]

“In the Promised Land, it will be so grand…”

Joshua likes to eat frozen peas for a snack and lately, he’s been lining up the peas (or nuts) on the table and re-enacting scenes from the Veggie Tales show, “Josh and the Big Wall”.  It’s quite funny hearing the quotes from the movie and hearing him sing the songs.  He has quite the recall, […]

Fall changes

Joshua went along for the ride Trick or Treating, enjoying eating an apple while Mommy got a work out! It’s been quite a while since I’ve posted on our Journey with Joshua.  It’s a balancing act caring for a family of 6, taking Josh to his appointments, his older brother Michael to his, and the […]

Home visit with Joshua’s School Team

Joshua’s Developmental Pre-school Team came for a home visit yesterday as they like to check in with the kids before school starts to help transition them back to school.  Joshua will be starting on Monday, September 13th.  I had invited them to lunch in appreciation for all they do for Joshua and cooked a big […]

First Day on Carnitine

Joshua is now taking the amino acid supplement, Carnitine.  Dr. Beighle noted that he was deficient, as other autistic children typically are.  Since this amino acid helps the body to detoxify, it will be interesting to see how he reacts to it.  He will be checked by the doctor in 6 months.  Already, I gave […]

Romans Chapter 5:1-8

Therefore, since we have been justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ, through whom we have gained access (by faith) to this grace in which we stand, and we boast in hope of the glory of God.  Not only that, but we even boast of our afflictions, knowing that […]

DAN Doctor for Joshua

I have been reading a book by a nutritionist and dietitian named Judy Converse, called Special Needs Kids Eat Right:  Strategies to Help Kids on the Autism Spectrum Focus, Learn, and Thrive  I had checked it out of the library and although I hadn’t finished reading it before having to return it, I was […]
