Michael has really come to love two activities this summer - summer camp, and therapeutic riding. This afternoon, he put the two activities together in a brand new way.
When he gets home from camp on Tuesday afternoons, there is just a little bit of time to change and get out the door for riding. On the way out this afternoon, he asked if he could bring this week's camp schedule in the car with him. When he got to the riding barn, he brought the schedule in with him so he could show it to the program director. He's never done any kind of show and tell before. It was 100% his idea, just wanting to share the joy of one activity with someone he loves from a totally different activity. It took me a long time to pick my jaw up off the floor.
I'm not quite sure what's going on, but the changes we are seeing this summer are huge. Better eye contact, using people's names, making connections between people, places and activities.. I just can't wait to see what he comes up with next!
