A few things worth bragging about..

This week James's class participated in  track and field events all week. James did really well he placed 1st in the 100m dash, 3rd in the Long Jump and 6th in 200m dash.  He is very excited to be going on to a meet with other schools in the board June 10th.  I can't wait to watch him run.  I used to do sprints, long jump and high jump years ago  I started when I was his age and competed until I finished university.  I'm so thrilled to see him enjoying this to.

My girl Ashley also had a fantastic day at school on friday. Last week she was a little off and didn't want to participate.    I'm sure she has some sort of virus but it is gone now and she is back to her old self even after getting her 5 year booster shot at the doctors yesterday she had a stellar day at school. She walked into the gym for a morning assembly and stood for the entire show with just a little balance help.  Her Teacher and EA were so impressed.

Here's a picture of her and Taylor happy to be home for lunch break and a quick nap.

Talking about good news check out  this boy Tristan.  He is one of Ashley's buddies. Tristan has   CP and it effects all four of his limbs but he has a warrior mommy and the best physiotherapists in the world  too Jo-anne and Bernie - that's right we share them.  I snapped this photo of him standing it is truly amazing what can be accomplished with CME physiotherapy.  He does this therapy 4 times a week and is working  extremely hard for these results.  Look at him proving the  doctors  wrong isn't that great!  

Way to go Tristan!

Hi there! This has nothing to do with your post, although you should be super proud, but I saw your comment on my blog and wanted to answer your question.
I have a program called "photo suite" that my husband bought for me a few years ago. I make the collages on there and then post them on my blog. It is great for putting a bunch more pictures but not taking up a lot more space! And it's tons of fun to play with the pictures!!!

I am very jealous that you have 2 amazing CME PT's near you as we have none. I am such a firm believer in CME and what our kids can achieve with Ramon's exercises. It is great to brag, I need to do more of it. Taylor is looking so grown up.
