It’s that time of year again – Badger football season! And Badger football season means we get to break out our giant lawn Bucky! Last year I showed all of the annual photos we’ve taken. Well, here are this year’s!

The kiss was entirely unprompted, I swear.
School has been going really well. Wes was pretty nervous about 4K, but he’s doing great. And Dawson loves kindergarten. It’s pretty tiring for him, though, so nights have been pretty tricky. Still trying to find a good balance of getting out his energy before bed and what time exactly he should be going to bed, but we are getting there.
Health-wise, Dawson is doing pretty well. The sore that I mentioned at the end of my last blog post (almost two months ago…I know, I know) ended up getting a staph infection that luckily went away very quickly with antibiotics. Unfortunately, D has yet another sore, this time on his left leg, that is also infected. He is on antibiotics, and hopefully we’ll see that heal up VERY soon.
Dawson is currently in the process of getting fitted for his new prostheses! He’s pretty excited. This pair that he is in still works ok, but we have been making a lot of adjustments to them in recent months, which is a sign he’s ready for a new pair. Dawson goes in next Friday for another fitting (including trying out new feet, which will be a little more dynamic and allow for more “bounce” in his step), and if all goes well, they will be sent out sometime the following week to be made into his definitive legs. Stay tuned to see the design that go on this pair! (Hopefully that will keep me honest and force me to post!)
Next weekend is again Green County Fall Nationals. We went last year and had a blast, and we knew we’d have to go back this year. If you are around Monroe next weekend, I highly recommend you stop by. It’s a lot of great people, and GCFN supports a lot of people in the area that really need it.
