I am leaving tomorrow to drive to Wisconsin to see Akila. I will be staying in a hotel tomorrow night and Akila will stay with me. Then on Friday morning, we will drive back to the Residential Treatment Center (RTC) for her 6 month staffing (mtg). After the meeting, she will come home with me for a visit until Monday at noon.
I am really looking forward to seeing her. Her August visit was the first weekend of August and this September is the last weekend of September so it has been a long stretch. Her attitude has been increasing at the RTC. She had a few weeks of whining and crying on the phone, but then school started and she has been really happy again.
We have had a very busy start to the school year. Imani is playing on the freshmen volleyball team at our high school which is 5 or 6 days a week depending on if there is a Saturday tournament. Zeke is doing football which is four nights a week practice and games every Saturday. Kind of glad there is nothing Hezekiah is interested in taking in the fall. :)
There is a ton of other stuff going on that I am going to write about soon, some really cool stuff. But something really sad, is that Akila's county Placement Worker passed away suddenly last night. I know he was married and had a 14 year old son. Very sad.
