Day 1,194: Celebrations

Madison had a great day of activity.

Her day started with a fun morning at March of Dimes! After some lunch and colouring with Suzanne she headed to Variety Village.

Madison has made the transition to most environments with just her canes or nothing, but the pool deck has been tricky for her. She gets nervous with the water on deck as she slips quite a bit. Today she decided to try her canes and she did great! She also tried to teach herself to walk backwards in the pool. After her swim she headed to the gym for a workout with Melissa!


After all her hard work it was time to celebrate her Flames teammate Aly who just broke a world record at Canadian Trials this past weekend. She will be swimming at the World Championships this summer and Madison is looking forward to watching and cheering her on.

Day 1,193: Reins With Sprinkles

Madison had a great riding lesson with Sprinkles today! They were working on guiding Sprinkles to turn using the reins. At one point, whatever Madison did or said, her horse started to run and they were all trying to keep up and hold on to Madison. She just laughed. The first two times around, Madison held on to the saddle, no more bike handlebars. Then for the rest of the time she used the reins with Pat stopping to explain things and show things along the way.
