Thankful Thursday

What a great week we are having, so many thankfuls...

~While we LOVE all of Alayna's therapists and know God truly had a hand in choosing each of them for her we are super thankful for NO THERAPIES this week!!!

For families who have a child with ds or other special needs you know what I am talking about (or maybe it is just me that gets giddy for a nowhere to be week).
A few weeks a year we have breaks from therapy and we soak in every minute of family life.

~Season passes to the pool ... I think Aidan, Alayna & I could live there! The giggles that come from Alayna as she sits in the wave pool and anticipates that next incoming wave are priceless! And watching Aidan go off and happily swim with his school friends and be tall enough to go down the big slide is super fun too.

~Aidan has turned into a bookworm :) He is voraciously eating his way through a myriad of chapter books and loving them. Alayna is creeping up behind him loving any and all books too and sometimes chewing on the book covers :)

~Alayna is initiating using utensils at mealtimes.

~A great evaluation conference for Alayna today at her school. She continues to do really well and mastered all her goals that were set for her this year. Yeah Alayna!

Please share what you are thankful for this week...

My goodness, those are some extra good things to be thankful for! I'm thankful that my girls went down easily tonight and I can put my feet up for a few minutes (before I go clean the kitchen) since it's been a LOOOONG day.

But really...initiating utensils?? That's crazy good!
