Video Rambler is Dead, Long Live Video Rambler!

Many years ago, back when Blogger still allowed FTP published blogs, when YouTube was new and my son was a baby, I started a video blog called Video Rambler. It was one of the first blogs I started and I posted to it regularly but time goes by and well Blogger stopped FTP publishing, I had a daughter and posting to Video Rambler got less and less.

I was looking at the site recently and thought it was perhaps time to move on from Video Rambler and shut it down but there are some videos I still like on the site that make me laugh, make my kids laugh and are just down right funny so I thought I would move some of my favorites here and with some magic done with IFTTT I might actually start posting some new fun videos that I find that I enjoy.

As I get some of my old and new video favorites posted here I will eventually close down Video Rambler, but parts of it will live on here so I can sit and have a laugh once in awhile with my kids about some of the funny videos we watched together when they were younger.

Apraxia Progress

It has been several years since my daughter was diagnosed with apraxia. At one point we never knew if she would be about to talk but with many hours of hard work and hours and hours of Professional speech therapy she has turned a new corner in her life with apraxia. For several years we have gone for weekly speech therapy. It started with regular visits to Wascana rehabilitation centre here in Regina to having a private speech therapist that quit on us and attendance at the Regina communication preschool. While we had some rough times we eventually found a private speech therapist that worked well for her and combined with some changes at the communication preschool has now lead us to this new turning point.

It is with great joy that last week was our last weekly visit to our private speech therapist! My daughter has reached the point where we are dropping down to only one visit to our private speech therapist per month. Our private speech therapist could not see a reason for my daughter to continue to come once per week.

My daughters speech still needs some work, her S’s are slushy and her CH and J are not always perfect but with regular reminders she is able to do the sounds correctly. Thankfully we are able to work her speech work in with her daily reading from school. Her reading is coming along well and in many ways her speech therapy has helped her excel at her spelling.

I hope that the many others that come here looking for help and answers to help their children have as much success as my daughter.

Summer Holiday Instagram

I don’t think I knew how much I needed a holiday until I was actually out at the cabin. It was fantastic to just be together with my family and have some fun. I took a number of photos over the course of the time we were there. I will start by sharing the photos I uploaded to Instgram.

I was amazed at how many photos I took over the course of the holiday. I need a holiday to go through all of them now. Once I do get a chance to go through some of them I am sure there will be more to add.
