It has been almost a year since we last posted here.
We just thought we should put something up to let you know that we are all doing well.
Peggy is back teaching at the University of Chicago Laboratory Schools. Ed is teaching and coaching at Saint Ignatius College Prep. Luc and Maisie are now in full day child care at the Easter Seals Center across the street from Saint Ignatius.
Maisie is a happy and active two-year-old, who likes to climb into the pantry to find what she wants—and likes to climb onto the kitchen bar stools to play with mommy’s computer.
Luc has made remarkable progress . His official diagnosis, a simple qualifying diagnosis for Early Intervention services, is cerebral palsy. He has been walking now for almost six months, and walks easily now without his AFO supports on his legs. Most exciting has been his intellectual development. He’s become a curious and busy child as he walks around our condo and his play areas. He loves books and shapes, and he speaks with words oval, circle, and square, along with the standards like momma, dada, and bye.

What we didn't include was specifics about trick or treating in LaGrange Park. Maisie and Luc were accompanied by their cousins Elizabeth (the cute and scary witch), Doyle (the pirate) and Sean (the spider) along with Tom (crazy hair guy), and Kathy. The weather was perfect. And Ed took awesome pictures, so here are more!
As Ed mentioned, Maisie walked with Elizabeth, but she also had several encounters with furry creatures.
