Brooks came to therapy after school with us on Friday and it was basically Alex's "show on the road" day because all he did was try to make Brooks laugh the WHOLE time we were there!  He had us cracking up the whole time.  Sometimes you just have to stop and smell the roses, lol.  I don't feel like he got much accomplished but it was great to see him back to his old self cutting up and laughing!

After a great weekend, Alex was kicking butt at therapy today!  SO PROUD!  He walked around the building at Brooks (inside) 3 times today and faster than normal!  Work in progress but definitely improving right before my very eyes.


I don't have his grades back yet.... shouldn't be long now... in the next couple of days and then we can all rejoice together at how amazing it is that he is doing all he is doing and retaining... 10 mos later!!  THANK YOU GOD....AMEN!

We have therapy today, school Thursday morning and then he is done for the week because of all the festivities. Getting ready for the big weekend.... FLA/GA... we will be downtown tailgating with Chad's family.  Going to decorate Alex's wheelchair for him and pimp it out with as much blue and orange as I can :0)  You may see him strolling the streets with Brooks and Nick... make sure you stop to say hello and introduce yourself if he doesn't do it to you first, lol.  He will be in hog heaven down there with all the people.... so many to share his story with, ha ha!  Heck you might even get a glimpse of him walking if you are lucky!  He likes to show off for sure!!

The "Celebration of Life" HOMECOMING PARTY is coming together and will be held on Saturday- January 8th, marking the one year anniversary of that fateful day.  The location is not set in stone just yet.... waiting for approval before I release that information.  I still need volunteers and organizational committee peeps if you are interested, please email me with Celebration of Life in the subject line so I can keep all those emails in a separate folder.  If you know any bands that would be interested in joining the bandwagon, please let me know as I am putting together a venue for entertainment.  Also if you have any suggestions or know of any places willing to donate items for drawings that day.....please email me so we can make this a huge fun event for all ages!

Going to close for now.... school is in session and I need to supervise and make sure he is paying attention..... NOT!  Keep those prayers coming....every little bit helps and Lord knows we still have a long road ahead of us.
