Squeeze a ball and Marry a thief
Today after school, we had therapy for Blondie. We continue to adapt therapy because of the broken arm, but she still is tired at the end of it. During PT she had to squeeze this ball between her knees to try to keep it still. She was switching chairs, and "walking" around with it, and it never dropped. This was much more difficult on her stomach, and her legs kept flopping over to the left. The scooter board was pretty easy though. With OT she continued to work on some sort of training program for her brain (some of it she finds tricky), but she loves the "race track" tracing. Then they moved on to regular handwriting skills.
After therapy, Blondie and I were home for about 30 minutes, and then the whole family went to go pick up Big Al and head downtown to watch my little brother's band perform. Colin has been drumming on something since he was about 2 years old. He has always said he will be a rock star, and he is working hard to make it happen. The girls can never get to see him play with this group because they play in bars, but this one was outside in the old downtown part of our city. Big Al got a big kick from it because she is starting out on her whole percussion thing. It is really great to watch them perform, and live their dream. So google Marry a thief (or follow the link on the side of this page). Download their music, and help them make a buck. I really enjoy most of their music, so its an easy sell for me to make. During the concert, Blodie started dancing with one of Colin's friends, she just LOVES music. Cheesie really just wanted to curl up on the sidewalk to sleep while Big Al and T-Rex wanted to stay and watch. The little girls started to crash around 8:00, so we managed to drag them along until the end of his set, and then headed home.
Here is Cheesie's napping place today when I got home around 6:00 -
- the ottoman.
