Good Bye Summer - Hello Fall

Even with Mom recovering from back surgery, I have had a GREAT Summer!!

Daniel Seamons worked with me most of the summer and I had a good time with him, doing all my favorite and fun things.

In late August, my good friend and buddy, Kalin Hansen, came home from going to school abroad in Chile.  He brought home with him his beautiful wife Karen, that he met and married while he spent a year there.  Mom said things worked out really great because just as Daniel was going back to school, Kalin came home and wanted to be my support worker again.  We are working around his college classes, but he takes me out from noon to five, M-W-F.  Tues. & Thurs. it's only from three to five.  But I'm having so much fun.

Here's a picture of me and my good buddy Kalin.

We do a lot of things together. We go shopping, to the movies, bowling, play basketball & soccer, go to the park. We went to both the Franklin County Fair and the Logan, UT. fair. I had a ball at both!  Below are some pictures of the fun things we've been doing . .

   Kicking the soccer ball around. . .

Just relaxing and tying string on the merry-go-round at the park.  I love things than spin around.

  Playing on some of the equipment at the park.

 Bowling . . .

 Shucks, I only got 8 pins.

I like to go shopping and look at all the cool things, learning to keep my hands to myself, and deciding what I want to buy.  This cool skull is what I picked out and I LOVE IT!!  We're in the car on the way home, and I'm worn out from shopping.

My all-time FAVORITE thing to do is swimming!

I was teasing Kalin.  He kept signing for me to 'smile' for the camera.  So I just signed 'smile' right back at him.  Mom says I have a fun sense of humor. 

Ahhhh . . . the joys of life.  I LOVE this chair!!  It also keeps me up out of the water so I don't drink the pool water.  I still don't understand why they don't want me to do that.

 Yep . . this is the life alright.  I could stay here all day!       

I'm a happy guy.  Life is WONDERFUL!!  I'm king of my house, my family loves me, I get all the string, tape, and balloons that I want, and I've got a great buddy to do things with!  What more could a guy like me ask for?  Yep, I'm happy and blessed.
