Beach pics

I have finally uploaded some of the photos from our trip to the beach.  As you will see, we truly had an amazing time!  I literally have hundreds more, but these were a few of the best.  I will keep working on this, trying to catch up.  Please enjoy!

First day of school

 OMGoodness, I can't believe how much they have grown!  I compared these to the photos from last year on the first day.  It's just amazing!  Can you see their excitement?  They all picked out their clothes for the first day of school.  Check out our other site to read about their first week of school and Erin's trip to the hospital (again).  O.k., I know I have also promised pictures of our trip to the beach as well as from our last trip to Kennedy Krieger, and I promise that I haven't forgotten, I just truly haven't had time.  I will get to it eventually, but I had to post these first.

We got Taylor's hair cut a few days before school started.  She looks beautiful and so grown up!
Erin's backpack is still almost as big as she is, but it's definitely not as cute.  She was so proud of her new outfit.
Jade (and Nellie) were ready for their first day.  She has overcome (for the most part) her separation anxiety and has been such a brave girl.  We're so proud of her!

Erin's Independent Wheelchair Transfer

Please watch Erin as she shows off how she can transfer from her wheelchair all by herself. This is HUGE and gives her one more way in which to be independent (very important to a 5 year old little girl). She can't wait to show her therapists, both at Kennedy Krieger and at school. She is so proud, and so are we! Here is the video.

Let us know what you think, so we can share it with Erin.
