Today Christina rode the school bus for the first time. All seemed to go well. Christina enjoys partaking in the same activities as the other children. I am sure she will enjoy the bus rides, at least for a while.

Sunday we went to the UCP Family Picnic. Christina ate well and enjoyed the time there overall. She won a few prizes and liked the music, singing, and cake walk.

I am not sure how to word it, but seeing Christina in her chair on the bus was difficult. Someday I may go into detail; for now, I'll leave it as it was difficult. For those of you who have sent kids off to school on the bus for the first time are probably relating thinking "yes, I remember those days". Thank you, but you would be wrong. Seeing her on the bus going to school was the easy part today. For those of you who 'see' what I do, thank you. And my thoughts are with you too.

Today Christina rode the school bus for the first time. It went well, the bus driver said he couldn't have asked for better. The little firecracker is growing up fast.

Saturday Christina wanted to walk and walk and walk, so outside we went. We found lots of room for her to use the gait trainer. She could go any direction and go however far her little legs would take her. She enjoyed being outside and chose to point the gait trainer away from the sun.

Of course we had many trips walking up the stairs and sliding down. Christina was up early on Saturday morning and wanted slide down the stairs as soon as the morning routine was done.

Sunday along with the usual play we went to the UCP Family Picnic. Christina showed off her beautiful smile and her attitude. The princess did not want to sit in her chair. That was OK, she had been in it for a while so I told her she had to wait for a little longer and then she could go 'up'. This gave her the chance to calm down and sneak out a smirk. Shortly after more games started. Christina enjoyed the music and the cake walk. And of course dinner was a hit.

Thank you to UCP-WCW, Ayres, and the other sponsors who put on the picnic.

Fishing for prizes.

Thursday the 23rd Christina and Daddy met with Barb. Christina showed how well she sits in her Kid Kart and joined in the conversation. Christina has been becoming more verbal each week. It is fun to hear her stories and listen to her sing.

The International Fall Festival downtown kept Christina and I entertained on Saturday. Christina showed off her smile and received lots of compliments. I can not describe how hard she laughed when seeing the zebra. The zebra just stood there, but Christina laughed hysterically. Even when we went back for another look she started laughing.

A good portion of the day was spent climbing the stairs and sliding down. Christina loved it; as for me, my legs and bum are sore.

Christina has been getting better at showing me what she wants when I do not understand what she is trying to say. She walks to the bathroom, refrigerator, pantry, stairs, door, bedroom, to name a few to get what she wants.

Friday night Christina decided about 45 minutes after laying down that she wanted more hugs. I'm not sure if she woke up from a dream or had not fallen asleep yet and wanted attention. In any case she wanted me to hold her and walk around. I told her I would hold her in the chair for a little while and she was ok with that. Five minutes later I told her she had to go to bed and she gave me a big grin and a hug. Back to bed she went.

Getting ready for bed.

Saturday we went to the International Fall Festival. Christina enjoyed the animals, especially the zebra. Christina also really enjoyed the bands in the parade. She is a fan of the drums.

Christina also did very well walking through the crowd of people. I was impressed how well she handled all the people walking quickly by her.

Watching the parade go by.

Christina had a good day at school. When she first saw me she started to cry and wanted up. I held her hand and told her we were going to walk to the van. Marie, her teacher, pushed Christina in her Kid Kart while I held her hand. When Christina saw the van she stopped crying and waited for me to pick her up.

Christina and I played and had a good time. She did wonderful walking in her 'pony' and using the flash cards.

When it was time for Christina to go with Angela the princess gave me extra hugs and held on tight. I miss Christina.

Christina and I had a busy weekend. The Sport Motors Harley Davidson/UCP raffle was on Saturday. On Sunday we went to the fall festival at Draman Church. Both events were fun. We also did lots of walking and singing.

Friday evening Christina was in a cuddly mood. We played a little and did some walking, but she really wanted cuddle time and wanted me to walk around with her. I offered a compromise, yet I did really enjoy the cuddle time.

Saturday Christina slept in quite late. It worked out well to give us time to go to the UCP raffle at Sport Motors Harley Davidson. It was nice to see everyone and Christina was full of smiles. Christina ate well while there, they had charcoal chicken, beans, chips, pickle and a roll.

Sunday we went to the Draman Church Fall Festival. Christina really liked the music. She also enjoyed the animals. The cow found her hair lickable.

It was cooler today, thank goodness. Christina has been making wonderful progress with the flash cards. I too have been making progress with my listening skills. Christina has noticed and continues to work with me to better understand what she is trying to say.

We have continued with our regular walks and wagon rides. Christina really enjoys the wagon. Christina also has shown that she likes to hold Grandma's hand when she joins us. Most days she does well keeping her head up.
