Madison has loved the water since her first swim as a newborn. The water is her happy place where she feels in control and free.
Today Madison had an excellent swim with Ryan. She was confident and did really well listening to his feedback and trying new things. She was so happy! I realized while she was swimming that it’s been 4.5 years since her first lesson with a Ryan…here is little Madi at 1.5 years old!
And today’s swim…
Madison also had a great session at Smile Therapy this morning. Her ankle was a bit sore from falling this morning but Jo-Anne helped her with some tape and she did great!
Mr Jack had a blast at Sportball tonight. They played their first soccer game and Jack ran hard and laughed the whole time.
Madison has been away from March of Dimes for about a month so she was very happy to return today for Conductive Ed camp this week! Jack helped pick her up and then the two spent the afternoon in the pool.
Tonight Jack had Sportball and did great!
Madison is a trooper and pushed through a physically demanding day. Camp has been an amazing experience so far but it’s been exhausting for her. Today’s camp skills included swimming, throwing skills, jumping skills, time outside and lots of camp games in the gym. Madison said the best part of the gym is when they all raced around the track. After camp Madison had an awesome swim lesson with Ryan. They focused on backstroke, floats with rolls, deep end swimming and kicking. After swimming Madison had a great workout with Melissa in the gym – she walked across all 12 treadmills sidestepping to avoid the lava on the floor lol.
Jack had his first morning camp today! The theme this week is sports. He went with his buddies and had a blast. After camp Jack took Rusty for a walk, played at the park and then met up with Madison at Variety Village. He went for a swim and then played baseball in the gym while Madison worked out.
It was a super active day for Madi and Jack so they were in bed asleep by 6:30!
Madison and Jack had an awesome day!
Today was Madison’s first day of sports camp at Variety Village. They started their day with swimming and then went to the gym and worked on balance skills with an obstacle course, played some camp games, worked on climbing and throwing skills and finished the day with free time outside. She loved it! It was a full day of fun – 7 hours of moving and grooving! She said the best part of camp this week is she gets to swim everyday and spend lots of time with her cousin and her friends.
Tonight was Jack’s first night of Sportball! It’s a mix of soccer skills and t-ball skills at a park in our neighbourhood. Madison cheered him on! Jack loved it and did really well. Tonight they focused just on soccer so Jack was a little disappointed as he LOVES baseball! But he is really looking forward to going back next week.
