Easter Egg Hunt













Justin, Kamden, Kendall, and I went to the annual Beeping Easter Egg Hunt for Visually Impaired kids in Ft. Worth on Saturday. It was a very sunny day, but the wind was horrible. This was also Kendall and Caleigh's (and Justin and Eric and me and Holly's) one year anniversary of being friends.


Kamden had a blast. He made some friends of his own, and as usual, was very competitive in hunting for eggs. They had a bounce house and lots of activities for the kids. Kendall did better this year than last as far as interacting. She seemed to like the Easter Bunny. I think the noise from the bounce house and the incredibly heavy winds may have been a little much for her, but she did OK.
Justin was a great daddy and took her out of her chair to take her around to the activities. Kamden was right there to hold her hand and make sure she was included in the fun. It was a nice morning visiting with old friends and making new ones.
We feel blessed to have opportunities like this to meet new parents and connect with other families who "get it."
Thankfully my mom's spinal tap did not show meningitis, but she still feels wretched and isn't able to get any good rest. Thanks for all your well wishes.
I'm up early this morning making my to-do list. This week I will be meeting new therapists and making some tough decisions about Kendall's weekly physical therapy. It stresses me out, but I feel confident that it will guarantee the best outcome for Kendall. We are going on our third week without Physical Therapy, and I'm ready to have some help with that. Having sessions twice a week gives Kendall a little extra, and gives me new ideas of things to do with her each day. But switching things around results in our routine being thrown for a little while. Ugh.
Hope you all have a nice week.

What a fun event! I like the photo of the both girls with their Dads and the one of her touching the bunny nose.

You seem to have a good, strong and balanced attitude towards PT.
