Day 331:Bloorview & Curle!

Madison started her day waking up at Nana and Papa’s. She had breakfast in bed with Nana and watched Tree house with Papa until he went to work. She had a great time!

Mommy and Daddy picked Madison up and headed to Holland Bloorview. Today was Madison’s first time visiting Bloorview and she loved it! She didn’t want to leave. She attended their Recreation, Respite and Life Skills fair. She did an excellent job navigating through all the booths in her walker. She visited the March of Dimes booth to see a picture of herself,  checked out the music therapy booth offered by Bloorview and also met a very cool dance company called Dance Ability. They provide ballet classes for little ones with physical disabilities all over the GTA. Madison will be checking out their open house and maybe start one of their classes in the summer. Not only will they work on different skills involving balance and coordination they will learn how to count the beats to music and remember sequences of movements for a routine. Madison would then perform in a show at the end. Madison was excited to see all the pictures of other little girls who use their walkers to dance like her.

After an afternoon nap and a play at home Madison was off to Curle. Curlé (pronounced Curl-eh) is a Bonspiel and fundraiser to help send a family friends children to school in Tanzania. Madison, Molly and Nate wondered around and watched all the curlers having fun on the ice. Madison put her name on a bunch of silent auction items and ate lots of pizza.
