After three weeks of intense activity at Footsteps, this weekend gave Daniel a chance to kick back and enjoy a bit of free time. It was also a great chance for us to see how things have changed. I thought you might like to see what he has been up to.
On Saturday Dan was invited to a friend’s party held at the “Rock Box”, a kid-friendly climbing wall at the local leisure centre. We didn’t know whether it would be manageable or a complete disaster, but it turned out to be great fun, as these pictures show. Daniel didn’t only make it all the way to the top of the wall, he had a fantastic time doing so! Great physio, the best stretches ever, a rare chance at an adrenaline boost, and he had a huge grin the whole way through!
On Sunday we took the boys to our local play area. This is normally the perfect place for Dan to ride his trike but this time, we thought we’d try the walking frame. Not only did Dan walk all the way up the road, he then spent a good 45 minutes walking around the tennis courts, learned to dribble a football (ish!), and even walked home too.
It was so lovely to see him enjoying the fruits of his labours. It’s important for him too, as he can see that all the hard work is starting to pay off. Now it’s back to school and normal life can resume for a while!
