It was another slightly productive day here. I did manage to get 4 and 3/4 more great granny blocks done before the bobbin ran out (only 17 1/4 to go).
Baby bears 2 & 3 came shopping with me for supplies for camp - baby bear #2 is off to Ballarat tomorrow for her final primary school camp. She is pretty excited.
Baby bear #1 played in his baseball grand final and won. This was his first season of playing baseball and he has really enjoyed it. He even won the coaches choice award for the under 16s.
But the best part of the weekend was tonight when baby bear #3 tied his shoe laces for the first time. I know for many of you reading this, this must sound unusual that a 10 year old boy is only just mastering that skill, but this boy has had so many hurdles to over come in his life. Every skill that you and I take for granted is a major challenge for him. He has so many things to deal with along with of his Autism and he is such a champion - he never gives up, no matter how frustrated he gets, his persistence is faultless. He is my hero.
