What's Up

Still no word from the bank. The fact that they didn't get an answer back to us right away, as our real estate agent expected, makes me wonder if something is wrong - like the bank is no longer happy with their approved price and is going to come back with a counter offer. That would spell the end for the Pink Cloud house, which is already more than what we had hoped to spend. Ross and I are going out to look at three more houses this weekend. Looking for a plan b. But Bank of America says their short sale replies take three weeks so I still feel hopeful.

Things are going well with Remy. Yesterday I met with the company that will be providing his ABA therapy. From Wikipedia:

Applied behavior analysis (ABA) is a psychological approach that uses the theory of behaviorism to modify human behaviors as part of a learning or treatment process. Behavior analysts focus on the observable relationship of behavior to the environment to the exclusion of what they call "hypothetical constructs". By functionally assessing the relationship between a targeted behavior and the environment, the methods of ABA can be used to change that behavior. 
There were four therapists (or aides or whatever, I never know how to refer to these folks) present at the evaluation and they all loved Remy and were unanimous in their belief that Remy is going to respond really well to ABA therapy.  I can't wait to start!

A little more than two months until the Stangers come to visit. I can't wait! We are going to have so much fun and October is one of the best months of the year in Vegas. It's gonna be awesome to see Remy with his cousins, Malachy and Owen.

In September I think Ross's parents and aunt are coming for a visit. That is up in the air for now while we wait for a closing date, but it would be great to see them.

And that's about it for now!  Hope everyone has a great weekend!
