A Mother's Proud Moment

Why would this picture give a Mother a very proud moment? Let consider that her son until about 4 months ago really struggled writing anything. When we started doing formal school work it took everything he had just to be able to write his letters or numbers. It was very hard work for him. Coloring anything was something he avoided like the plauge. All of a sudden a few months ago he started decorating his workbooks. 2 weeks ago during church this is what he drew. It's very detailed. There are flowers in the windows. There are wood, flames and smoke in the chimney. There are several different types of vehichles on the street. Going from struggling to write to willingly doing it on his own. Halleujah! Physical therapy and Occupational therapy are really working. I cannot tell you how happy this made me. 

For Christmas Daniel got a set of real tools. Here he is trying out his hammer for the first time. I'm hoping to use these tools frequently for him both because it teaches a useful skill and it's good therapy for him.

You will notice he is sans glasses. They broke a week or two ago and we are waiting for the new pair. This will be his 3rd pair since he started wearing them in October of 2010. Daniel was very excited about this pirate ship he built at his Play therapy. He is very interested in pirates right now and this is the toy he goes for everytime at Play therapy.
