Reesie at Ellis Rehab Therapy

Here's Reesie with Mrs. Tracy (in the black) and a student who was just observing for the day. Tracy is the occupational therapist and works with Reese on fine motor skills, things with her hands etc.....She's with Tracy 30-45 min at a session and she'll start going 2 times/week starting the middle of September. Reese loves all the fun things they do and the therapists are wonderful.

The picture to the left is Reese in her wheeled stander, AKA "chair-chair". She likes being in her chair, I think because it gives her so much independence and she can follow her sisters around the house. She still can't make it over the thresholds from the carpet to concrete but she's working on it. We have a special spot in the dining room that we keep the stander and when I say "let's park it" she'll wheel herself to that spot and wait for me to get her out. She can do big circles in it and likes to play on the piano while she's standing up tall in it, but watch your toes when she's around. Ouch!!! What a sweet little girl, Heavenly Father has truly blessed us.

First Day of School 2008

School has started and they both love their new teachers! Maggie is in 1st grade this year and Rylee is in her last year at Oak Tree. I'm glad to be back in the swing of things....Rylee really enjoys going to school and only attends on Tuesday & Thursday but would be happy to be there every day. My, how time flies!!!!
