Exciting Stuff!

I was contacted a couple weeks ago by the lady who coordinated the Apraxia walk for this area last year.  She told me she was planning another walk this year and wanted to know if I would be interested in Co-coordinating the walk this year with her!  I absolutely jumped at the chance!  What an awesome opportunity!  She told me that she has applied with the county for the permit and was waiting to hear back from them on whether or not the permit was approved.  She said once she heard back she would contact me again to start the process of coordinating the walk.

When I hung up with her I was SO excited.  My team last year raised a nice amount of money and I'm hoping this year to exceed that!   I'm also hoping to gain some more walkers walking with us for my son.  And to be able to known as a co-sponsor for the walk is great!

The lady contacted me this morning to tell me that she got the permit back and it was approved. She has scheduled the park for September 18th!  She wants me to write a little "blurb" for the main page of the Area Walk Website and also send her a picture of Avery. She wants to put a picture of her son and a picture of Avery on the main page and combine our blurbs into one big one.  She would like it ASAP so she can send it to the main Apraxia Headquarters to be approved and the website be up and running.  Then we'll talk about the next steps and what we want to schedule for that day and activities we will plan.

I'm so excited!  Now I just have to figure out what to write! LOL

The older boys are supposed to come home today too!  My Mother-in-law will be bringing them home this afternoon and then she'll spend the night here tonight and after dropping the boys off at school tomorrow we'll go shopping and then she's going to watch Avery while I go to a Dr.'s Appt.  After that she'll head home.

When they get back today we're going to take them to play some putt putt.  They've never been before and were bugging us to go before they went to my in laws.  It's another thing we get to do free with our membership so why not?!

Until then I'm gonna try to get some stuff done around here. Guess I can't talk any of you into doing the dishes or laundry huh?!

Children with developmental apraxia of speech will not outgrow the problem on their own. Speech-language therapy is often helpful for these children. Will you join us in ....

I have a child in my class with apraxia. At the beginning of the year, I was very worried about his lack of progress. His parents sent him to a speech language therapist who specializes in helping children with apraxia and I have kept him after school on my own time to work with him once a week. He is doing beautifully now!!!!!! woooooooohoooooooo

Came over to give you some comment love from UBP. If you want to link up an apraxia post to my medical blog hop every thursday that would be awesome. It's at
My son is nonverbal due to a stroke. He's a stinker and figures I understand him so why should he learn to use his eye gaze computer. stubborn kid but it's what kept him alive so I'll take it. Good luck with your walk.
