It has been absolutely beautiful out! And gorgeous weather = parktime! We went the other day after A got out of school (have I mentioned how much I LOVE having my afternoons back with him!). As I sat back and watched him, I was amazed at how far he's come gross motor wise. There is NO.THING better for OT and PT challenges than the.PARK. Last summer he made leaps and bounds (which I attribute to all our park visits), but watching him on this particular day I was amazed how he was a madman running, climbing, and all over the place with NO falls!
This same day, a little boy came up to Aiden and asked, "How old are you?" Aiden looked him right in the eye and belted out (with great confidence), "I four years old!"
Okay - first off, he's three for a few more days, but I loved how he wanted to take this stance of "I'm a big boy and can hang with the big boys"; and second, he typically never looks at, much less talks to, any strange child or adult without me urging him to answer back. This momma was smiling ear to ear.
A couple days before, I got all three of my kids to come outside and enjoy some fresh park air. Ryan and I played a few good games of tether ball while K & A played hide-n-seek and ran around.
we played 'til the sun went down(then went out for chocolate shakes!) my life. Hope you are getting to enjoy some sun-shiney rays too ... perfect therapy for the mind & soul.
