Updates...

After 4 days of squeezing in time to work on Ryan's room, it's finished. Here's a before picture from earlier in the year...



Here's a now picture, minus his new bed. I ran into a problem with his new bedding last night. I tried to wash the comfortor and the darn thing ripped so now I need to return it and determine if I want to replace it with something else or chance it happening again. That's just fitting seeing as I decorated the room around his bedding. Regardless, I'm happy with the way it turned out and he loves it.

Father's Day was spent at Bret's brother's house with good food and family.



Ryan is doing very well in baseball. It's his favorite sport and he's working hard at it.


Speaking of working hard - Ryan started his Lose The Training Wheels class today. It's an adaptive bike riding class where the bike teaches the child how to ride. He rode that thing for the whole hour and fifteen minutes! He goes everyday this week and they guarantee that he'll be riding on two wheels by Thursday or Friday.



And the best part of the whole class? I don't have to run along side him!

where's that class offered at? great idea! however, he looks like he's driving a "harley hog" rather than a bike with those handlebars!!!

Magnificent!!!
He's sure growing up quickly and now has a room for growing into.

His room looks good! Much more grown up :-) Unfortunantly, Alexia just got her very blue room, in a shade not too far off from Ryan's old room. It's okay though, she just turned 5, so I figure she can get away with it for a while.

Good luck on the class!

Em - The class is sponsored by Easter Seals for kids with disabilities. I can't express just how much it's helping with his confidence alone!

Brandie - Ashley's room is still blue and isn't going to change. We're just going to paint one wall chocolate brown to match her new bedding. The problem I had with Ryan's walls before redoing them is that they didn't match ANYTHING!
