Like I was telling my sister-in-law Emery...you know you have a lot of kids in the house when you look at your hand sanitizer and find a cheerio at the bottom of the bottle! And that's how it has been here at the Dale and Elaine Kemp Household of five adults and five kids (all kids being 3 and under)! There's never been a dull moment! We are almost outnumbered...but having a blast! Dale and Elaine are being total troopers! They were "Empty Nester's" just for a few months before they were hit with a hurricane of "fun!"
After Mike's accident...we realized that we couldn't live in our home...Mike can't get around independently because it is a two story home...so in short of me becoming "wonder woman" and flying him upstairs...or him becoming "he-man" and muscling himself up the stairs...we have temporarily moved in with his parents! They have been so welcoming...not to mention a TON of help...so has his sister Kassie...who is staying here until her husband returns from Germany this summer (by the way...she is one awesome mom)!
Jocelyn has her own fan club...all three of the toddlers (Brody, Allison, and Megan) huddle around her like she's a star! We try not to let it go to her head! :)
FANTASTIC MIKE UPDATE:
I didn't even know that he could do this...but apparently with the help of a HKAFO (Hip knee ankle foot orthodic) Mike can sort of take steps using the walker! He uses his hip flexers to swing one leg in front of him at a time...it's really slow going...but it's a way to work on bone density, blood pressure...and see if we can't get more muscles to "wake up"...it was really cool seeing him upright! Gosh he's handsome!
