Follow Olivia's WISH!!

Tomorrow night we will pick up the RV and head out for Florida during the middle of the night while the kids are sleeping. Yesterday Olivia's box from Make A Wish arrived with all of our goodies in it. Olivia especially liked her Make A Wish Barbie! She wore her shirt to school today. Thank you to Erica who is our wish manager that coordinated the RV rental and all of the little details! We are so grateful. Don't forget to check in every day to see new pictures. We may not be able to update until Saturday night, unless we stop somewhere with WIFI before Give Kids the World.

Olivia gets to ride a bike at school!

Olivia's physical therapist at school "Mrs. Gallery" was able to get a bike from Ambucs for Olivia to ride at school for exercise. She loves it and gets to ride it in the halls for recess when the weather is bad outside. We are so happy that she has it. This fall we are going to apply to Ambucs to see if she can qualify for a free bike. They sponsor children with disabilities who cannot afford to purchase an expensive bike like this one.

Changes for Olivia

Olivia has started first grade! She loves school and is doing really well. Her health has been great for the past two weeks with virtually no seizure activity! Praise God! We continue to pray that she will stay in good health for her trip to Disney that is coming up October 1st!

She is wearing her new helmet and her new leg braces. She loves the braces for her feet because they have flowers and butterflies on them. Her helmet has also protected her face from many forward falls already.

Olivia is doing really well in Math and is so excited that she gets to ride a bike at school every day! Thank you Miss Gallery! Olivia loves her new teacher Miss Cumming and of course her helper and good friend Mrs. Gruppen! We are so thankful that everyone at school is so kind and takes great care of Olivia.
