Another FANTASTIC workshop with GO KIDS GO! on how to really get the most out of your wheelchair. This time Dylan joined in on the fun and it was great for Thomas to see how well he has mastered wheelies since last year!
Roy, the trainer, is so positive and so empowering. One thing he said in passing was ‘…get involved in your journey…it’s your journey’. I will try to be mindful of this as we continue to move forward with their increasing independence.
Yet again, Thomas has worked hard EVERY day this week at Footsteps. He has put in 10 hours this week but due to the long weekend he will only have 8 hours next week. Only!
However we have also had some lovely afternoons sharing time with friends, baking, making Lego, eating ice cream and completing the library challenge so there feels a balance.
Here’s to a restful weekend and to making the most of the time we have left before school starts.
Superhero Tri 2019
150 metre Swim
8 more sleeps. We have received our email confirmation and we are in Wave 12, starting at 4pm if anyone fancies coming along to this incredible event In Windsor NEXT Saturday.
We have been assigned Captain Marvel as our Superhero which feels very fitting – powerful and strong-willed!
After a wonderful holiday to see friends and family in Ireland, Thomas has been back to physio this week. Thanks to the weather he was able to cycle there and back. A wonderful taste of growing independence.
The boys are crawling to the end of term and so a weekend trip to see grandparents was a nice welcome break for Thomas. 8 school days before the summer holidays!!!!
This summer, as a way to celebrate and mark how far Thomas has come we are going to take part in this year’s Superhero Tri.
It’s the UK’s one and only disability sports series and we can’t wait to be part of it. Let the training commence!
Thank you for using the Easyfundraising link when shopping! It all helps.
I can’t believe we have been back a week already! Our trip to Disneyland Paris was wonderful. Everything about it was utterly joyous and I hope the boys will treasure the memories for always – I know I will. Without the funding from ‘Dreams Come True’ this isn’t a trip Brian and I would have ever considered so we are even more grateful for the gift they gave us as a family.
Alongside of horse riding, swimming, soft play and going out on his trike, Thomas has also put in 6 hours of intense 1:1 physio with his physiotherapist this half term! As usual he has given his all and so now it is time for some serious fun over the weekend.
Thanks to the charity ‘Dreams Come True’ we are all off to Disneyland Paris for 3 nights.
