My little girl went to camp!
I know, I know... pretty typical. Lots of kids go to camp. But for our third kiddo, camp is a REALLY BIG deal.... This extra-special young person has extensive disabilities. Lots of typical stuff is difficult for her. Keeping up with her classmates... well, that is a dream for us. But kiddo's 7th grade class was spending a week at Camp. We sure didn't want Smiley to miss out on the experience!
The theme for the week was, "stretching your rubber band." I do love that image. Everyones' rubber band is different. For some, going on the zip-line or swinging on the giant swing was stretching the rubber band. For our kiddo, walking through the woods over rocks and roots was stretching. So was staying overnight for two nights with her classmates (and mom).
I am sooooooo very proud of this kid!
See that smile? We saw an awful lot of it last week!
And this smile? Easy-peasy... we got all the *boys* to stand behind the photographer....
Yup, pretty typical girl, she is!
Have a happy day!
