Carrying the necessities

I know I have been getting really bad with updating everyday and I apologize for that.  We have been extremely busy.  As you know, Taylor is a full time student at the University of Northern Iowa.  He works so hard and puts in so much time studying, I am honestly impressed with his devotion and determination.  I am going to school myself while working as a Realtor in town.  On top of that, we are planning the wedding for this upcoming year! As well as, working on the design and logistic of starting the house build as soon as spring hits and the ground thaws.

That is a short synopsis of what has been occupying so much of our time.

Anyways, with so many exciting things in our future, I am going to take the time this week to post a picture of how Taylor has overcome and adapted to his new body.  How he has learned to be independent.  A big part of his independence is to be able to carry stuff to and from appointments, while traveling, class, and honestly just throughout his life.  Being able to carry the things he needs by himself, allows him to be able to do things alone and not need someone by his side.

Here is the first example of how he figured out a way to transport his prosthetics to and from his prosthetic appointments.  He hated that I had to go and sit through every single appointment just because he needed help carrying his extra parts and pieces. He is seriously a constant source of inspiration for me.

How can school and work take this much out of a person… night night!

Taylor is having a syllabus week but he thinks he is really going to like classes this semester (stats, accounting, humanities….what isn’t to love:-)
