A Fun Weekend....

Hi all! Well, we're surviving school being out. The first week was rough but things settled down some after the first week. Hannah still misses all her friends alot. Especially Layne. She makes me say...."hello miss hannah" to her, which is what he said to her every morning at school. I have to say it exactly like he did too. LOL!

She got to go to VBS at Central Baptist one day then she got ill. They were so very kind and accomodating. I felt perfectly at ease to do whatever I needed to do with Hannah. I was sad we just got to go one day, but that one day, Hannah had a blast!

On Saturday we took Hannah to her first aquadic therapy class. She started crying as soon as we walked in but David eased her in the water and she loved it once she got in. The instructor was fabulous. I was really impressed. It was cool to see all the special needs families and watch several of the kids even swim. They all put on these back packs that keep them from staying under water. They can go under if they want to, but they don't have to, and the packs keep them from staying under. Best of all the program is funded by a grant so it doesn't cost anything for the kids to participate.

After we were through with swimming we decided to go to "Stephanie's Day" at North Park mall. Vicki, Fred and Javan went as well. It is a special event for special needs kids and their families. They had clowns, animals, etc. there, along with dozens of booths full of information on services and programs. Hannah wouldn't have her picture made with any of the celebs there but her little friend Javan did so I'll post his picture. We got a couple bags of pamplets and books to look through. It'll take me days to go through it all.

On Sunday we went to church in Plano and heard Jeff preach. Hannah loved the worship service. She handled everything pretty well. There were a few moments I thought she was going to melt down, but she never fully did. We ate a Cheddars afterwards and she enjoyed that.

It was a full weekend but enjoyable. We'll do the aquadic therapy again next week. Keep your fingers crossed for us. I think she'll continue to enjoy it, but who knows.

Oh, and I got an email from 4paws. We start sending shirts once a week now. We're one step closer to her having her dog.
