Pharaoh and Physical Therapy

Eric, Andrew, and I are volunteering for Vacation Bible School this week. The theme is "Crocodile Dock." Even though we technically have alligators, not crocodiles, in the swamps, the kids are enjoying the songs, crafts, skits . . . and stories. Eric is helping out in the Bible story center. Yesterday, he did a great job as the voice of God speaking to Moses through the burning bush. Today, he ably portrayed Pharaoh. "No . . . no . . . no . . . " He did such a fine job playing a mean, nasty, stubborn Pharaoh, the kids truly wanted to beat him up. He practically needed a body guard to get out of the church. I'm a crew leader, shepherding eleven super kids from station to station, and Andrew is one of my assistants.

Then despite having two more scheduled PT sessions, when we told Kim that Eric didn't use his oxygen the whole time (okay, there were those 2-3 minutes one day) at Mo Ranch or yesterday working out at the gym, she said, "Great, then today's your last visit!"

Eric's LAST post-PT Sonic snack . . . popcorn chicken and a grape-watermelon Dr. Pepper.

Great news for the whole family. You can make plans at your convenience rather than planning around PT. Congratulations to Eric for coming closer to the end of a long journey. Blessings on the whole family for being such a support group for Eric when he needed you. Hope to see you at Wed. lunch group soon.
