I hope that you all had a wonderful Easter. We were fortunate enough to eat with some of our church family yesterday. About 23 of us stayed after church and enjoyed lunch in the fellowship hall. We feasted on ham, turkey, broccoli casserole, corn pudding, potluck potatoes and many other things. By the time service was over, you could smell the food cooking throughout the church! It was delicious and we really enjoyed the time of fellowship.
Mike and I were hoping to get some family photos yesterday, but that did not go well. We waited too long and by then Emily was not feeling very cooperative. This is her right before the attempted photo shoot. Doesn't see look lively?
We really need to get some batteries! We had enough for Emily to try out a few of these items. She really liked the mirror with beads. I think she liked looking at herself and the feel of the beads on her hands. She thought the bubble blower was pretty interesting too. She also got some computer software that she can use with her switch (that is the pink thing next to the bubble blower). She cannot say she is bored with all this variety!
Emily will also be going to occupational therapy at a local therapy center once a week. The therapist there will be working with Emily on a lot of movement and helping her with her sensory issues. I think the addition of these 2 new therapists and all this new stuff to play with is going to help Emily grow and learn some new things. Plus, it is going to keep Mike pretty busy too. We cannot let him get bored, now can we?
