The Lady in the Orange Shirt


Get to know the lady in the orange shirt...
I think we're going to be great friends.
This is the cool new ASL website I found! It has a video clip for an entire dictionary of words! The other websites I found like this you had to subscribe to and pay for. But this one's free!!!! Don't you love free? It is exponentially easier to learn signs from a video clip rather than still pictures. This was a great find! The address is http://commtechlab.msu.edu/sites/aslweb/browser.htm It's a long one, so just add it to your favorites.
I will post a new list of signs very soon, so you can check this out. Those of you learning, keep it up! We have to learn quickly to keep up with Justus! He's amazing. He's putting together three signs at a time easily, when just a few months ago we were at one word utterances only. (And they were limited.) I'm so proud! Our home has changed so dramatically!
Justus is happy!
He makes jokes!
Our Spanking Spoon is not so tired!
He never throws his poop anymore! :)
He tells me what he wants for breakfast!
He tells Rusty things that have happenned in his day!
He knows all his shapes and colors!
He's learning his alphabet!
For all of this, we give great glory to God! He is good!

I love this!! This morning Alex and I were sitting here picking different words and doing the signs. It is great to see it in action and not assume that you are doing it correctly. I am a visual learner and Alex did so well!!

We're having fun over here, too! thank you for telling us all about this! Hannah tells everyone she's learning another lanquage. We had Danaya demonstrate to Hannah's class the other day and they gasped!

We love Justus!

I want t-shirts made...the we love Justus Team. It needs to say the we love Justus team in sign language on it. It will be my favorite shirt...next to Aaron and the Bombastics.

Love that little brown boy with the cute little hands moving around. We had a great exchange in the pantry tonight. I asked him if he wanted candy in sign language...he said yes. Then I asked him if he wanted the red or the green one in sign language. He said red. It was so fun...and he just hugged me so big. I pulled back from him and told him, "You can always come talk to Mrs. Heather...okay?" Another hug. Made me tear up!!

Love that boy!!
