The kids went bowling for the last day before school restarts!
I had nothing to do with this, and our daycare provider Jennifer Daviau is the most amazing person ever! She organized and took them, and took pictures.
At first I thought "oh Katheryn will have fun, but how would Nick be able to bowl?". and how?
There is a whole contraption for Nick to just push the bowling ball.
He had so much fun! When I got home from work he was excited to tell me how he was bowling.
The kids love the bowling app on our tablet, so they get the concept, I just thought they were still too young.
Guess I was wrong.
I know a lot of parents have had concerns and problems finding daycare for their kids who have additional needs. We have not had a single problem with Jennifer and that has just reduced significant stress from when I had to go back to work.
Need to learn how to cath - no problem.
Need to drop off Katheryn early/stay late for appointments - just tell me when
Need a last minute drop off because we are heading to emerg - we actually dropped her off in the middle of a bus-run.
Becoming accessible, using the walker, AFOs, (and now the KAFO), latex-free, symptoms of shunt failure, medications the list goes on and on and we haven't had any problems.
It has been great to have someone who does not see spina bifida as holding Nickolas back. They go out on all the day trips, things may be adjusted for Nickolas but they are still done.
