Dance Recital 2012

 Last weekend was Emily's last dance recital.  She has taken dance since she was 4 years old.
 Little Maddie was excited to dance for her new baby sister. She did an awesome job.

 Thanks Zack for being Emily's dance partner.
Thanks Cathy for being the greatest dance instructor ever. Because of you my girls grew up having self confidence they will need to be successful in life.

ABR Spring Tour 2012

Our week started with an assessment by Leonid. (creater of ABR)

He saw many great changes in Noah's structure.

We can't wait to see what the changes will be the next 6 months.

On Wednesday we had a free day. We visited the Montreal Botanical Gardens.

There wsn't much growing outside yet but, their greenhouses were blooming with color and beautiful butterflies.

Cool man Noah in his shades.

Not sure he liked the butterfly glasses.

But, Grandma sure did.

They also had an Insectateriam.

On the way home we stopped in Niagra Falls, Canda for the night.

It was pretty cold down by the falls. At least 20 degrees colder.

We went to Margaritaville for supper. Noah enjoyed watching the people on stilts.

Leonid really felt Noah should be fine eating by mouth.  We have really been trying to work on that since we've been home. Noah hasn't done to bad. He has been eating his supper by mouth since Monday and getting better at it everyday. He has been enjoying eating mixed vegtables, avacado, applesauce and yogurt,  The one thing I wonder about, is how will I get enough liquids in him this way?

Happy 23rd Anniversary Scott

Happy 23rd Anniversary, Scott!!! I love you!!!

What a roller coaster ride it has been but, I'm glad you were along for the ride. They say that 80% of marriages that includes a special needs child ends in divorce but, this last year we have grown closer than we ever were. I guess we must be doing something right.   I can't wait to see what God has plan for us this year. 
Today I leave for Montreal Canada for our next ABR training.  I'm going to miss you so much. You have always been my rock and I love you so much for that. 

Happy Anniversary
I love you!!!!

First Zoo Trip of the Year

 I decided that Noah needed some fresh air and sunshine today. So, Morgan, Emily,Noah and I went to to the Columbus Zoo this afternoon.

 We had an Awesome time. It was the perfect weather for the zoo.  We bought a family membership so, hopefully there will be lots of impromptu trips to the zoo this year.
 Noah liked watching the turtles swim.  The girls told him to ask Daddy for his own turtle. They say if he ask, Daddy can't say no.....

I loved watching Noah look at all the fish. He would follow them all the way across. He even looked up to watch a shark swim by.
