Natalie and her Bop

Natalie and Bop spent some time together on Saturday reading the new Froggy book that Natalie got from Cook.  Don't they look cute together?

Reunited with Shorty

Summer session of Hippotherapy started tonight. Natalie and her favorite horse Shorty B get to spend time together every Thursday night for the next 2 months. It's going to be cool to see Natalie use her Talker in this setting.  More updates on this in the coming weeks.

Happy Camper

Natalie spent last week at Camp Emanuel and had a blast!  Camp Emanuel is a day camp for children with speech/language impairments and/or hearing impairments.  I was very impressed with the staff and the great stuff that the kids got to do including swimming, going to the Columbus zoo, bowling, and to the movies.  Natalie had a buddy named Sue who helped her each day and they really bonded.  I'm not positive but I think that Natalie was the youngest kid there (ages are 5-14) and the other kids seemed to be interested in helping her out (and checking out her cool Talker).   Natalie will definitely return next summer.

Preschool Graduation Day

After 3 years of preschool Natalie has graduated!  I think she's ready to move on to bigger and better things in Kindergarten!  She was lucky to have her mommy, Cook, Howard, Mamaw, Aunt Tammy, and Sammy there at the ceremony today to cheer her on.  It was "A Day at The Beach" theme so there were lots of cute fish songs and some refreshments afterward.  Natalie had little enthusism onstage but once she was offstage and with family, she started dancing and talking!

Silly giggles

Natalie loves being rough with her cousins.  Here's a little video of Nat and Ronan playing with Cook after Sunday dinner.
