Staying Busy

I guess I'm overdue for writing an update. We have been so busy lately, I feel like we don't even have time to breathe!

Sierra is getting physical therapy 4 times a month, developmental delay therapy 2 times a month, and blind services 1 time a month. She is also going to the chiropractor in Austin (75 minutes away) two times a week. On top of all that, we have been doing fundraisers. Our next fundraiser will be in Burnet on Dec. 13. That will be a fun one. We are going to have an arts and crafts booth set up and sell wooden things that I made with the scroll saw and also homemade soap.

We went on a 2 day camping trip to Pedernales State park about 2 weeks ago. We took Sierra and the two dogs. We all had fun and really enjoyed it. We hope to go camping again sometime.

Yesterday, Sierra, Daisy, and I went to the swearing in of our state representative. I got to take pictures of Sierra with lots of important people so that was fun. It has been about a year since I have been able to go to any political events so it was nice to be able to do that again. I'm hoping to gradually start becoming involved again.

Here are lots of pictures from our camping trip and our trip to the capitol.
