A Big Bag Of Balls!

1 out of 3 kids in the US have sensory issues. This is a great way to get those senses going and help your child feel better centered. The OT we saw in AZ suggested we make a big bag made out of nylon and fill it up with balls for him to get into and get some of that energy out. Joseph absolutely loves it. Can you tell from that face, that he loves it!
He's in heaven. He will play in this bag for a long time and I really feel like it helps him calm down.
John not so much
The nylon of the bag makes it great because of the stretch so if gives even more input into the body.
So if you look closely you will already see a rip in it. I learned the hard way you should double stitch it.

Cornell Indoor Track

Cornell Indoor Track is coming to an end so I thought I would post some of the pictures I have. This is Todd finishing his race.
This is Todd and Jeremy. Jeremy is from Chandler, AZ and has become a little brother to us. He is a great guy and is putting his mission papers in this Summer. We are so excited for him! He also has been a great babysitter for us.
Me and my cute hubby!

Birthday Dinner

So for my birthday we celebrated at Outback with Sarah & Gerrett. Sarah had her birthday the day before me so we thought it would be perfect to go out together. I was pretty excited to go to Outback. It's an hour away but totally worth it. Ithaca is lacking in the good food cateogory. We had a lot of fun to be out with actual adults and not have our kiddo's with us!Us with the Montgomerys
Happy Birthday to ME!
Happy Birthday to Sarah! Aren't they cute, we love them. Thanks for a fun night out!
