Linus was a bit cranky last night. When we took off his helmet to get him ready for bed, we saw this:
It still looked the same after 45 minutes, 1 hour, 2 hours...so we made the decision to let him keep it off for the night. He seemed more comfortable and happy. This morning, his face was still a bit red. Diane came for PT this morning for both Josie and Linus. She looked at the picture and his face and agreed that we needed to call the orthotist. After a trip to Monroe, Linus was back in his helmet and was a happy boy.
PT went well this morning. Josie used the balance beam (Pierre didn't realize how much use this beam was going to get when he built it), and worked on a puzzle. Then, we went outside to play ball and run around. While Diane was stretching Linus, he fell asleep. I have never seen someone sleep through physical therapy, but Diane assured me that she has. Once, she was done, he woke up and was ready to play.
After a busy morning, Josie was a little tired when her OT, Lisa, came to work with her. Josie really enjoys spending time with her “teachers.” To her, it's like a playdate. She can't wait to start “big” school and is always talking about “classroom” and “backpack.” She is becoming independent. I am not sure I am ready to send her to school, but I know I have to let her go.
Speaking of school, tonight was Open House at the elementary school for kindergarten and 1st grade. I saw Lucie's truffula trees, Alice's volcano (which really exploded), went on a scavenger hunt, and saw so many projects and artwork hung in the classrooms and hallways. Tomorrow, we will be back for 4th and 5th grades.

Pierre called the restaurant we usually order pizza from and asked for 2 pies for Pi Day.
After a bit of explaining, we got 2 pizzas with 3.14 written on them in pepperoni and mushroom. Happy Pi Day!
