There Are Angels Here On Earth

Recently we were able to get our porch floor replaced. It was beyond needing done. The before picture shows the spot where the floor boards would move as we rolled Noah across them. Thanks to Noah's Earth Angels that made this possible. You know who you are....
I could go out and dance a jig on it but then I would look pretty silly.
And now a picture of Noah because it wouldn't be a blog post without a picture of this sweet face.

Our Night at a Columbus Blue Jackets Game

It was as last minute trip to Columbus to see the Columbus Blue Jackets game. It may have been last minute planned trip but we had a great time.
We got free tickets through A Kid Again. It's a organization that helps wish kids and their families have a Time Out from all the medical stuff.
Noah sat between Emily and I. Except for an occasional placing of his bum farther back in his chair, he did a great job sitting in his own chair.

The night would have been a lot better if they would have won. I understand that they fired the coach after their loss. (they haven't won any games yet this year) Hopefully they can figure out what they need to do to be a winning team. Good Luck Blue Jackets!!!
Thank you A Kid Again  for a fun "Time Out".

Our Day at the Cleveland Zoo

It was a great day for the Cleveland Zoo. We got free tickets from MTD. We were to go last week but it was very cold and rainy. The tickets were for any day and boy did we pick a beautiful day.
We enjoyed seeing all the animals.

It was fun feeding the giraffes. Noah thought is was funny when they licked his fingers. Thanks MTD for a fun day spent with Noah at the zoo.

A Perfect Night

 At one time I thought the perfect night for Noah would be going to a school dance with a "typical" girl from school. It would show he truly fit in right? But actually he would probably  still be seen as the boy in a wheelchair and not just Noah.
Noah made it clear to me that he wanted to go to the dance and he wanted to ask his friend Paige from his class. So Noah and I made a sign so he could ask her to homecoming.

He was happy she said yes. For 2 weeks I got to see a very happy girl every morning when I would take Noah to school. Paige was so excited that her friend Noah and her were going to a dance together.

I got to witness the coolest moment between two friends.  He went to homecoming with someone who sees Noah as a true friend. Not a boy in a wheelchair, in fact I can almost guarantee Paige doesn't even see Noah's chair. Paige sees Noah as just a boy, a boy that happens to be her friend. Noah's night couldn't have been anymore perfect.
Thanks Paige for being Noah's friend.

God's Work Our Hands

Last Sunday our church participated in God's Work Our Hands. We made cards for the shut ins, made cookies for the police and firemen, etc... One of the things that got done was the restoring of Noah's ramp. We sure missed using it for a few days while it dried but we feel so blessed to have ready for the winter. Thanks again to our church family and to some other Earth Angels. Noah's ramp looks awesome!!!
