Disneyland here we come!!

Now I Can

We finally had Hunter's evaluation with the Now I Can Foundation. This is a intensive physical therapy center in Provo. After evaluating Hunter, Sergio (the physical therapist) said that he can definitely benefit from this therapy. He also said that he has lower functioning kids than Hunter that are coming to them and they are seeing results. The whole reason this therapy works is because it is more consistent. The therapy sessions are 3 or 4 week sessions, 5 days a week, for 4 hours a day. We plan to schedule Hunter's first session within the next 3 or 4 months. I am sure you are wondering about the last picture on this post. I took it to show the neurosuit that they use. We are very excited to see what this therapy does for Hunter. Our hope is to get him walking. Wish us luck!!


Hunter and Trenton are only 2 months apart exactly. They don't see each other very much, but I thought this was a sweet picture.

Grandpa Butcher's 86th Birthday Party

We had the chance to go to Wyoming this summer for my grandpa's 86th birthday party. We had a good time. It was fun seeing all the extended family that was able to come. It has been hard since losing my grandma, so it was nice to have something to celebrate.

Hunter 2010

Here are the newest pictures of Hunter. I can't believe that he is already 5 years old! I was glad to get some pictures of him standing to show his progress. As he has gotten older, it is getting harder to get him to cooperate for pictures. I thought they turned out pretty good. I was also glad to get a good picture of the kids together.

Lunch with Special Friends

We had the privilege of going to visit April and her family in their new house. I am so blessed to have had the opportunity to get to know April. She is such a sweet person. She is an awesome mom and takes great care of Caleb. It was fun to see Caleb and feel his special spirit. One thing about having a special needs child in my home is that it has given great compassion to Caitlin. Watching her with Caleb was just precious. She isn't intimidated at all by his disabilities. She gave him a kiss on the cheek and tried to read a book to him. It was so cute. We had a great time and hope to have more visits in the future.

Caitlin's first bubble bath

Here are some pictures of Caitlin taking her first bubble bath. She just loved it. She now thinks that she needs one every night.

Just because

The cutest kids ever!!!!

Loving One Another

I just LOVE these pictures! It shows how much love my kids have for each other. Caitlin is so good with Hunter and Hunter is very gentle with her most of the time.
