Guess who's in the 2nd Grade now :)

We made it another year... Nate has progressed on to the 2nd Grad, Mrs. Bland's classroom. I am so proud of him and what he has accomplished and overcame.  Nate is a great kid that has already been through alot....but he does not let it slow him down.  With love and support, he can do anything. Thank you Lord :)

Nate's in Mrs. Tarter's 1st Grade

Nate has made it to the 1st Grade :) I am so proud of him!!! When I first found out he was completely deaf in both ears, I was devistated. I mean what do I do now? How is it going to affect him in life? Well, it hasn't affected him!!!  He is awesome.... He does what all the other kids do... He struggles some with understanding big long sentences but he has only been hearing for a little over 3 years.  My boy is so smart, so athletic, he has such a comical attitude.  Nathaniel is now 6 and attends a puiblic school with no type of Special aid... just his normal speech therapist which I love :)

Everyone has been so great and supportive with Nathaniel.  Thank you so much for the time and dedication you have with him because without each and every one of you, He wouldn't have made it this far.

Can't wait to see what's going on with Nate in a year from now. Growth, Growth Growth!!!!!

Nate 3rd Year in Preschool with Ms. Gates

Nathaniel has made it to his 3rd year of Preschool this year at Hopkin's Elementary. He has a wonderful teacher we are so thankful for. God keeps blessing our family with teacher's and doctor's that get involved and really want to see him progress. Just today I spoke with his teacher and her first words was, "We have a little genius on our hands".... Awesome words to hear from your son's teacher. She also told me that when she asks the classroom to find a certain color, not only will Nathaniel identify that color but he will go around the entire room and bring her 10 things that are the color they are discussing.
Without all of the help from specialist Nate has seen in his life that accept him, love him, help him, and respect the challenges life has thrown his way, I'm not sure if I would of made it through but WE HAVE AND WE ARE STILL DOING IT!!! To see the smile this kid has on his face every morning, ready to hug, laugh, learn, and play, it makes all that hard work worth while. He Loves Life!!! He is a true blessing to have around, he has changed my attitude and outlook on life, learning, and loving in everything I do, everyway possible for a human to do. As always, Thank You Lord!!!

Update on Natre Dawg July 9th, 2011

To start off, like always, Thank you Lord for all you do, all you have done and for everything you will continue to do for me and my family!!!

Nathaniel is now 4 years old. He has graduated from Preschool 2 time so far and has one more year before entering Kindergarten. YAY!!! He is learning so many new things. He is finally beginning to understand full sentences and trying to repeat those sentences back to you verbally as well. He is such a blessing and growing up way to fast for me.

He has already mastered riding his bike (no training wheels), he had the 4 wheeler mastered last year. Honestly, anything that has wheels or a motor, he can ride it like it wasn't nothing... lol We have currently moved due to some hard times, but we have stuck together as a family, put our faith in the Lord, and are expecting for him to do his will and get our family back up on our feet.

Please keep me and my family in your prayers and we will remember to do the same for you. God Bless!!!

Thanking the Lord above!!!

So many changes in so little time... what more could I ask for? I have a wonderful husband, 2 beautiful red headed boys, and 1 little doggy we call Dixie Piggie!

I recently attended a parent/teacher conference and not to my surprise Nathaniel is not falling behind at all!!! He joins in for book time, circle time, he participates in everything all of the other children do and does great if not better than some!!! Isn't God Great? He has increased his vocabulary up to 20 or 30 words, he knows all of the alphabet, he can count to 10 correctly, and he is even starting to write his name, tie his shoes, and much much more!

Needless to say, I wake up everyday Thanking God for everything he has done for my family and myself. This life wouldn't be the same without him in every minute of it :)
