Namine had a lot of fun at the first day of Miracle League baseball.
After weeks and weeks of practice, it was finally time for Namine’s dance recital this weekend.
This morning we headed out to Independence First, a disability equipment provider. For the next three weeks, we have on loan a combination wheelchair and bicycle. They call it a Bike Buddy.
Last night was Namine’s last dance class before her recital. But before that, she had a piano recital.
With just one more week of practice, Namine’s jazz class is working hard to learn their dance.
Over the weekend Namine had the chance to play sled hockey again. She loved it so much the first time, we had to do it again.
There is much discussion on social media lately about gender identity and bathroom use. This discussion has been amped up ever since President Obama’s mandate to public schools to allow students to use the bathroom for the gender they identify with, instead of making them use the bathroom for the gender they were born with.
A long time ago (it sometimes seems to us), long appointments were the norm. I’m not just talking about a mere two or three hours; in the days of Namine’s infancy, it was typical to spend literally six to eight hours at the hospital.
Namine gave her very first speech yesterday, and she did a fantastic job.
Namine’s dance class learned the rest of their recital song.
