Back In the Saddle Again

Blue skies and bearable weather (actually beautiful weather)
means it is that time of year again.
Time for Kean's Hippotherapy sessions.
 We even have Clark joining us...
to not only lead the horse but more importantly,
help keep Kean in the saddle.
You should have heard our boy giggle non stop
when we started trotting.
Not sure he was laughing with glee at going bumpity bump
or laughing at Clark and I trying to keep up.
 Holland has some big news-- finally, finally (she's been 
excited about this day forever), she got braces.
 Her mouth is a little sore but so far, so good.
 We also had Kean's second session with  the Neuro Psychologist
at St. Luke's.  If you remember (from my past rants), the state
is requiring Kean have a lengthy IQ test to make sure he
is still eligible for therapy services (read still has Down syndrome).
 Dr. Deidrick is one of the good guys.  She thinks this testing
is as ridiculous as I do-- but has slogged through getting 
Kean to cooperate (with lots of breaks).
 And she thinks she has enough for him to pass (or fail)
depending on how you look at it.
Yes, he will qualify for services again.
 And finally, after spending the day at the hospital, I got  to
spend the evening with Miss Reese.
Our church held a Luau for the girls around Reese's age.
 The party featured a yummy dinner, hula lessons,
 a hula performance for the mom's,
 games, the limbo and lots of fun with friends.
It was the perfect way to unwind and relax after such a long day.
