Moving on (but not forgetting!)

Today was our family's last day at the Gault Family Learning center which provides Early Intervention services for children ages 0-3 with developmental disabilities in our county. Xavier received therapy services there from July 2003 to August 2006 and Benny from March 2006 to today (August 22, 2007). So for four years, the wonderful ladies there have been helping us give our boys every opportunity through therapy, creative adaptive ideas, friendship and support to help them live up to their individual potentials. We are so very blessed to have been able to know them - they have impacted our lives forever and we appreciate them more than words can convey. We carry with us their positive attitudes and belief that our boys can accomplish anything. So thank you Ramona, Cathie, Audra, LeeAnn and Cindy - we love you all and will miss you dearly, but promise to visit and keep you updated!

Here are some of the activities Benny has had fun with in therapy:
Scooter races with Cindy, Audra, and LeeAnn!

Tunnel time! Benny loves this, especially since the reward at either end of the tunnel is a pretzel. Ben is the lump in the middle. :)

Fine motor activities like sewing and cutting with Cindy.

And here's Xavier and Nick observing all the different activities in the room. Xavier loves to visit and especially enjoys his time with his former physical therapist, Cathie!

From now on, both boys will receive therapy services through our school system (just as Xavier has since last September). On September 4th, Xavier and Ben will start preschool together, they'll be in the same classroom! We look forward to a great school year, with both of them having lots of fun and learning new things - its so fun to watch them grow!
