We are still here!

I can't believe that I haven't posted since Christmas! The only reason I'm posting how is because I need to free up room on my phone for more pictures and videos. I'm scared if I put them on the computer it'll just crash so I figure I'll put them on the blog and they'll live forever....right?! 

This time last year we had to hold Asa's hand when he walked around on uneven ground, but he has become very adventurous this spring/summer! It was really cute when he'd roam all over the yard while we watched from the porch. That is until a few days in row that he just went outside, off the deck, around the yard and finally into the woods without anyone else around!! That's kind of adventure is scary!! So now all the doors are triple locked!

He loves being up high. 

Or in confined spaces!

Gracie had been putting the sprinkler on the trampoline and jumping with Asa. One morning, he headed outside without her and tried to put the sprinkler under there by himself. 

He's had some fun nights at Cade's baseball games....another first! He's always hated the ball games. They are loud, hot, too busy and there's no Curious George. This year his love for dirt has kept him occupied a few nights. Other nights we wait in the van with a direct view of the field. 

And he still loves flags! We stopped at this display of flags after he was such a good worker in aquatherapy. It was really windy that day, which made for great flag flying but is one of Asa's triggers. He wanted to see the flags so badly that he risked it. He did really great for a long time. Then, he buried his head into my chest and covered his ears when the wind blew the hardest. I could never convince him that doing that would keep the wind from bothering him until the day we were looking at flags. I call that progress too! 

I'll post more with some of the medical and school updates but for now at least you get pictures!
