THE SHADDOX BOYS
Jacob and Elijah Shaddox are brothers. They live with their mom, Mary, who is the writer of this blog. Jacob is 19 and is now four inches taller than his mom! He also has ADHD and gorgeous red hair. He is a freshman at a technical college studying computer maintenance. Elijah is 15! He is in 9th grade and he is not in ROTC at his high school. He also had red hair, but it is lighter and not as thick as his brother's hair. He is hearing impaired(auditory neuropathy) and wears two cochlear implants. He also has tourette syndrome, ADHD, OCD and anxiety! Mary just started her 25th year as a teacher of the deaf. She is also in her last semester of graduate school to be a diagnostician! She will graduate in December of 2015!

Well the boys and I are off this week. I decided to check out all of Elijah's clothes since he has been putting on weight and growing a bit taller. I found some size 12 and 14 jeans that were Jacob's and so I am saving those. I found some 10 regular jeans but most of them were too tight. He has a BELLY on him right now. I did find a great deal of size eight and ten shirts so I think he is good for now on shirts. There are some shorts he can wear also. I went through Jacob's clothes too, but there wasn't much that didn't fit him. However a size 16 pair of pants/shorts that I found on clearance are too small. DANG it. I 'll have to save them for Elijah.
I just bought a pair of eight husky jeans for Elijah about a week ago. In a few weeks he can really start wearing shorts to school everyday. He has one more year where he can wear regular clothes to school and then he goes to standardized dress at school. It really does make it easier when they move to that dress code.
I have about seven bags of clothes to donate tomorrow when we go off. I already had two bags of clothes in the garage from some other cleaning I had done.
I'll just have to make sure to have the boys with me if I decide to shop for them. This is especially true with pants and shorts.
I also cleaned out my refrigeator yesterday and cleaned all of the shelving. OH my they were a mess and it is nice now to open the fridge and see how clean it is.
I may have Jacob help me tackle the garage later this week! Don't you know he will love helping me! NOT!
