Merry Christmas!

Jack was very happy this morning to see that Santa had eaten all of the chocolate pretzels that Jack left out for him. He was even more excited to see that Santa had brought him noisy tools! Ryan and Jack putting together the very cool blocks from Grandpa and Mimi.

Old but New

Here are some pictures from October, old but new to the blog. :) Some are of Jack on his first school field trip, to the pumpkin patch; and the others are of Jack riding Peaches.
Jack and Evan in the wagon, on our way to the petting farm. Jack and Evan became good friends last year in class.

The safari train

Jack riding Peaches. Jack looks forward to every Friday because he gets to ride Peaches. If you ask him, "What are you going to do on Friday?" He'll exclaim, "Ride Peaches!"

Look at that smile! Helping him are Boomer (to the left), Rachel (in the back), and his physical therapist, Georgia (on the right and holding his leg). These three are amazing!! Everyone at Healing Reins is...We are so blessed that Jack has this opportunity.

Getting my exercise at the Pumpkin Patch.

Jack, standing on his own, checking out the Llama. This was definitely his favorite animal to see.

Julia and Jack at snack time. They have become good friends; both do Family Zumba with me on Fridays.

Jack LOVED the school bus...what a big boy he is!

Happy Halloween!

This was Jack's first year for trick-or-treating and he had an absolute blast. However, I'm not sure who had more fun, Jack or me. I loved seeing his excitement. He dressed as Superman and his very good friend (aka girlfriend), Natalie, dressed as Superwoman. What a great night!!
Jack has been doing awesome these days. He is walking a lot on his own, with his walker. He has such a good attitude and works so hard. He goes to preschool twice a week for 2 1/2 hours each time. It's amazing how quickly he is progressing these days. I think being with the other kiddos at school has really inspired him. Way to go, Baby...You rock!

Wow - it's been a long time.

Mimi and Grandpa came for a visit in May. (Yes, this year...I know I have been slacking big time.) We had a great time and enjoyed wonderful weather. It was a great way to leave spring behind and begin summer.

Jack and Peaches at Healing Reins

Jack started hippotherapy on Friday.  Hippotherapy is a type of physical therapy, using horses.  It was so cool to see Jack on a horse!  He LOVED it!  Jack will be doing hippotherapy every other Friday.

Jack and Natalie

New pics - yea! I still need to post pictures from Mimi's visit, but unfortunately I procrastinated too long and the computer the pictures on is now at Best Buy being repaired, hopefully. Jack and Josh had a wonderful time playing with Mimi while Ryan and I went snowmobiling. :) Jack LOVES the kayak at Working Wonders Children's Museum.
Jack is getting very good at using his walker. He still needs assistance, but I think he will be walking on his own, with his walker, by summer. He works so hard!
