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!

Cat in a Box
I ordered some Vera Bradley items recenlty and when they arrived they were in this nice green box. I left the box on the floor and soon all three of my cats took turns checking it out. The box has been sitting in our den for several days and has made for some great entertainment for us. This picture is of Oreo sitting in the box. Perky got behind the box, under the lid. Oreo then started batting at Perky's head and of course, Perky jumped out and batted at him.
Sometimes one of them will hide under the lid(it makes like a triangle with the ground when the box is open) and waits for another cat to walk by, then attacks. I will keep it in the den until it just finally is too worn out to be used, or people are coming over!
Boxes are funny things! Whenever we have had something arrive in a big box, we'll keep it in the house for several days for Jacob and Elijah. Jacob is too big for that now, he says, but Elijah loves to play with boxes. He will draw on them and ask me to cut out windows. The best box we had was when we got our refrigerator! That one lasted for about 2 weeks, before I finally got rid of it. Elijah made it a boat, a house, a tree house....all using his imagination! Isn't it funny how the cats like boxes too. I wonder what they are imaganing!
