Moving on up!

Clara's teachers sent me this video last Friday and I about lost my mind. . .

Look at her go!! I knew she had been working on this skill, climbing a ladder, for several months but I had no idea she had mastered it to this extent. Mind = blown. Look at how she owns that thing!

And isn't it amazing how God gives us just what we need, right when we need it? I mean he is God after all, and that is pretty much his speciality, but man . . . talk about timing. After several weeks of struggling greatly with Clara's needs and erring on "the glass is half empty," side of the equation, I needed a boost to flip the glass to full. And then this. . . exactly that . . . a boost to regroup and get back some mental clarity and positivity.

The girl that we didn't know would ever walk, is now climbing ladders.

Can't wait to see what else is in store for her. So, so proud of our hardworking girl.


  1. Way to go, Clara! And in a skirt, no less!

  2. That's awesome! I'm so glad you guys are able to send her to that school - it just seems like it has been such a great experience for all of you and such a game-changer for Clara! Also, let me just point out that when YOU are struggling greatly with things, you sure don't complain about them out loud all the time like I do... so feel free to vocalize those things anytime you are with me to even things out a bit :)

  3. Look at her goooooooo! Yay, Clara!

  4. Look at that girl GOOOOO! That is so awesome! Proud for you & her both! Love ya!
