Shaking Off The Dust

I've decided that this year I'm going to make this blog a priority. I so enjoy looking through old posts. I have been chronicling my life online for almost 14 years. First it was Livejournal, then it was Blogger and now I have switched over to Instagram. While Instagram is so quick, easy and accessible, there's not much meat to it, for some posts.

During the time I was taking a hiatus from blogging, Caleb was diagnosed with Apraxia of Speech. It is a disorder where basically your brain tells your mouth what to say, but your muscles don't know how to move to form the words. It is most common after strokes, for adults, but some children are born with it. It requires lots of speech therapy and work for the individual to teach the muscles how to move to form even the simplest of sounds.

I have tried to keep updating regarding Caleb's progress through Instagram in drips and drabs, but I feel like a blog will give me more freedom and room to explain things more thoroughly.

That, in a nutshell is why I'm back, but, truth be told, also, we are looking to move this year... and chronicling that crazy journey (and where we end up) is one that I surely do not want to miss.
