Isn’t this fun? Joy is the purple horse on the left.
They had a parade through the school and the other kids were cheering for them and giving Joy high fives! – so cute!
Happy Derby Day!
We drove up to Indianapolis to meet with our Financial Planner. We are trying to set up our wills and Special Needs Trusts for Joy, Bella, and Alex. We stopped and got Joy cow pies (french fries) and had a picnic in Indiana.
After our meeting we went to the Lego store. So fun!
Monday Joy went to her first baseball practice! They have a special needs team! She is so excited!
Friday therapy, the Stinker, I mean Joy. We are at therapy for three hours on Fridays. The girls alternate between OT and ST, and then Bella has PT. We just hang out in the gym while Bella works that last hour. To entertain herself this time Joy found a piece of something that they use for therapy for stretching (my Dad used it for his shoulder). It was alternatively rope to tie up Sammi and a rein for me, the horse.
Playing in the water with Lizzy and Nerf Guns with Daddy
Becca’s cat went missing. Joy was so worried. She asked me about it every day. She prayed for cat. She knew Becca would be sad. So the morning that Jacquet showed up again, Joy was so excited! She said, “Cat! Gecca happy!”
Joy still has a hole in her right ear drum. Eventually we’ll have to go in and close it. But she is hesitant to do so now. She’s afraid she’s close it and then she’ll need more tubes! So we will go back in four months and see how she is doing. Basically, keep water out of it and monitor at this point.
For Spring Break, Joy got to attend KITE, a camp through EnTech and Spaulding University. She worked with a sweet OTA student every day. She had a fabulous time! She loved camp!
On Tuesday they brought in Baxter, the therapy dog. Joy was in heaven!!
We found some Sisters Forever shirts with Elsa and Anna on them. The girls loved them! It was so fun to dress them in something besides uniforms!
Joy was so proud of her crafts coming home!
They sent me eCards of all of their fun at camp!
Thank you – We loved camp!!
Joy and her sisters got to go see the movie Home! She loved it!

Playing outside on the trampoline and then in water as the day warmed up!
Dying Easter Eggs
At least once a day (if not a million), Joy asks me “Where Gecca?” “At Gecca’s house” is my response. We were talking about Bec and got the crazy idea to jump in the car at 2AM and drive all the way to her college! So we did and Joy finally got to see where Gecca’s house is!
Gecca’s house Wake up Gecca!! We surprised her!!
