Last Day of School!

I put Kelsey on the bus for the last time this school year. It's the end of a season. The beginning of a new season. Kara and Garren have been finishing up exams this week. Garren aced his math exam on Wednesday. Kara got the highest grade in her class on her precalculus exame - 98%. Through all the stress of last minute studying, math worksheets, late nights and early mornings, we are finally through!

Garren continues to progress. The therapists continue to be encouraged with his progress. His legs and core are getting stronger all the time. I've been taking him to the gym a couple of times a week and we have had fun working out together. Garren is able to walk with a cane and with someone holding on to him. His goals right now are balance and endurance.

The swallowing continues to be his nemesis. We will continue to pray that God will heal his throat, so that things will begin working again soon. The therapist said to give him a couple of months, and then we can revisit the swallow therapy.

I'm looking forward to the change of pace for the summer. With the kids out of school we will be able to spend some good family time together. I'm looking forward to what God has in store for us next.
