Namine had a wonderful time rolling down the runway in her second fashion show!
Namine recently had a few roles in her acting school’s adaptation of Romeo & Juliet. She gave me a panic attack, but that’s on me, not her.
Today is National Walking Day . As it happens, Namine had physical therapy today, too. Namine tells anyone who will listen that her lifelong dream is to walk on her own. Because she was born with Caudal Regression Syndrome, her legs cannot yet support her weight. She’s not about to let that stop her, though!
Namine picked out her outfit for her upcoming fashion show!
Namine likes to push the little shopping carts they have in grocery stores. They can be a little uncontrollable sometimes, though. (Sounds kind of like a ten year old I know.)
We went to the mall and encountered some accessibility ignorance.
Even since we got Namine a new bed four years ago, we left it on the floor. Well, not anymore: now it has a frame.
Namine and her friends from ballet class spent the afternoon at StoneFire Pizza.
Ellen Stumbo (whose blog you should be reading anyway, she’s excellent) writes about her negative experience in attempting to enroll her daughter who has Down Syndrome in dance class. (As usual, I have plenty to say on the topic too.)
Namine learned to serve in her tennis lesson, and then played (and won) a match against her coach. (Ten points to the Hogwarts house of your choice if you got the reference.)
