Nathan is Hebrew and means "gift from God" - we couldn't have been more blessed than to have been chosen as his parents!

Thank you for keeping up-to-date with Nathan. We hope you visit often and enjoy experiencing our son's journey as much as we do. Please feel free to leave comments.

We love hearing from everyone!!!!

A little bit of this and a little bit of that...

I just love the "get-your-hands-dirty" kind of fun Nathan has at school and that his teachers make the effort to capture these moments for all of us to see. I leave a digital camera in Nathan backpack every day for just this reason:

After I saw these pictures, I thought, "HOLY SMOKES! I'm so glad he does this stuff at school!" No way he's doing that at home. Outside at camp sure, but not at home.

A few weeks ago, Nathan returned to hippotherapy and to his horse - Babe. It was a super sweet reunion. The minute Nathan got on his horse, he yelled ~ "GO!" We all started cracking up. Last year, the therapists were working really hard to get Nathan to verbalize "go" and this year, it's the first thing he says! Now, that's progress!

The weather has started to break, so we're taking advantage of it! These are a few pictures from the park this weekend. Nathan really loved watching the big orange gold fish in the pond.I'm pretty sure this is a family tradition! Nathan won't eat his olives unless they're on his fingers! It's too funny.

Thanks for stopping by!

LOVE the messy face pictures! And, how great about his reunion with Babe! He must have been so excited- and yelling, "go" right away is so great- what a smart kid!
