Today's Supervised visit went through.. Caleb and Shira came to visit and play on our new climber/swing set. My neighbor and I worked really hard to get it up in time for the kids to visit. Shira is doing good she is still sad which is to be expected. She is not really wanting to talk when provoked but has been randomly making comments.. You can see in her eyes the pain and longing for her mother. Caleb is still the smiley happy guy I have always seen him as. I am not sure how much really is sinking in to him. But they came over and played with my boys today and the new swing set.. I talked with the lady who was in for supervising and she said that this may be the only supervised visit that from now on I could schedule with Tom (CPS) to come get the kids for 1/2 days and take them to different place, like the zoo, olbrich gardens, park stuff like that. So I am hoping that we can set up another time soon.. I asked Shira if she wanted to help in the garden so maybe we can do some gardening this next time.. I talked with Shira about the Memorial and told her if it gets to be too much for her to come by me that I would be there to help. So just a heads up the kids are super sensitive and I just want to make sure that they are not bombarded from all the people who want to love on them and show them how much we care.
Enjoy some photos.
