What a gorgeous Sunday today was! A couple special things happened today.
The first thing which doesn't sound like a very big deal at all, except that it IS, was that Matthew actually COLORED/SCRIBBLED with a crayon. Now, I will be the first to admit that that was probably a STUPID thing for me to encourage him to do, since he might just get the urge to repeat the activity at home ON THE WALLS or in some other less-than-appropriate spot. But Matthew is one of those kids who just doesn't engage with activities easily, so if I can find just one more activity that he enjoys, it makes me happy.
The other special thing that happened today was that we discovered this handicap-accessible park, just in the next little town over from us!
The picnic tables have overhangs on the ends so that wheelchairs can fit under. So, we took our lunch and ate out under that beautiful fall-blue sky!
The BEST part of all was this swing set! They had wheelchair swings! And not just one, but TWO! They KNEW we needed TWO! MaKenzie and Jared loved them! They have been on these kinds of swings before, but it's been a couple years. What a treat to find them close to home!
Lena helped Matthew navigate the slide, which gave him the giggles.
And they played hide and seek and played in the leaves.
And just hung around.
Can you see those sun rays? It was such a beautiful day!
What a blessing to find this little spot where my kids can be kids--and SO CLOSE to home! I'm so thankful for The East Ky Gearheads and CSX Railroads for providing such a wonderful thing for our local community!
