Where has another week gone????

We have had a pretty busy week. Alex is absolutely thriving in therapy. It is amazing to me and his therapists with the progress he is making. Things we have been working on for years he can all of a sudden do. His fear level has come way down. We are so very proud of him. At this point he can write almost all of his lowercase letters in cursive. He is willing to get his hands dirty for the first time in his life. And he is climbing higher and allowing the therapists to test his balance. It is so much fun to watch him grow.
Tuesday I took some time to myself and met a good friend for coffee. Thursday I once again met a friend for a yoga class and a walk. I am trying to be better about taking some time to myself. Actually, Alex's nurse gave me a gift certificate for a free massage. So I am going this week. There is nothing I love more then a day at the spa!
So back to Alex and our crazy week. Last Monday we went to playgroup. We were having so much fun that we didn't get home until 7:00!!!As I have said so many times, we just love our time with our beloved playgroup!
T​uesday and Friday were therapy days. We also fit in walks every day, kicking the soccer ball with daddy, a bike ride and of course school! Sunday we even skipped a nap to go to Daddy's soccer game! It has been a busy, but fun week. After soccer on Sunday, Alex and Daddy had a much anticipated shaving cream fight! As I alluded to earlier, Alex has never been willing to touch anything messy. Well all of a sudden he LOVES shaving cream. So I decided to let him and Daddy have a shaving cream fight. We had to wait until it was time to change his port needle. So Sunday was the day. A full can of shaving cream later, Alex was covered as were the backyard and Hershey! It sure was fun.

Yesterd​ay was the beginning of a new session at our horseback riding therapy. Once again Alex amazed us with his willingness to try new things. He was happy to see his instructor and horse.
We ask for continued prayers for Alex's health, Bruce's job search and our ability to keep our health insurance. We thank you for the blessing you are in our lives.
